What's in the Dirt?

PLANTS!!!!!!!!!!! Our beans/peas or something have popped up out of the ground. so have our squash plants. We are confused as to what to do with 10 plants in each hole. Thin them? Won't that take more time to reestablish a root system? One thing we definitely know is not to pour Miracle Grow on the plant.

We Are Wierd Again

In reference to our TPed home, we have had two very wonderful neighbors sympathize for us. I would say it was a Mormon thing to feel special waking up to Toilet Paper all over your house... but even in my 'worldly' upbringing only the loved, accepted people got TPed. Who would waste money on someone they didn't like?

We were TP'ed last night. I guess we are now part of some family. Maybe now we will start to feel even more like the high desert is home. :)

Running the Bases

We went to a local baseball game on May 2nd and Isaac, Tori, and Rebekah had the chance to run the bases after the game. Isaac even got a ball that was hit into the stands.

Thinking of Others

Today we celebrated Mother's Day with my family by having lunch and painting stepping stones. Everyone had a great time. My mom made us bracelets with ladybugs and butterflies. She had our children give them to us. Isaac brought mine to me and was so very excited. My younger sister's son (the blond sister, haha) brought her bracelet to her and everything was great. Until... Isaac noticed that my older sister didn't get her bracelet (her children want to give it to her tomorrow). It took some special grandma convincing to get Isaac to understand that she wasn't left out. Aren't we lucky =)

I know white is supposed to be a color, but when I look at white walls all around me, I get weird. So, last Saturday Warren painted our hallway upstairs and the computer/playroom a pastel yellow. Why pastel yellow? Because it was a 5 gallon bucket of OOPS! paint at Home Depot for $20. Love the OOPS! paint. Great brands, low prices, and bizarre colors. Kind of fits our family =)
We have also lost some color in our garden. The brown sticks we planted hoping for berries and grapes have been returned after 2 months of brown sticks and nothing else. And the brown leaves we inherited after someone poured Miracle Grow on our strawberry plants have started to show some signs of green. Oh, yes and the full peach tree with about a dozen peaches and a plethora of leaves we planted is almost a brown stick with the same 12 peaches the size of a wad of gum and about a dozen almost still green leaves. We have learned in the past 2 months a few things about our yard. Number 1- peach trees don't like it here and number 2- miracle grow really means miracle kill.
