Aren't these great pieces from an etsy seller? She is featured on the main Etsy page. Whitney Smith Pottery. Unfortunately they are not for the poor budget. The Poppy Plate is $128.00. Pretty though.

Happy Easter

We had a wonderful Easter and I didn't take a single picture. So you'll just have to take my word for it. Hope you had a great one too.

My seeds are sprouting. I know you will all enjoy my pictures of this so here you are. I am trying some knew ones this year besides the tomatoes peppers and herbs. I've got leeks, flowers (zinnia among others), onions, and opal basil that are new for me. i planted some onion bulbs already. I love the South.

I managed to do this fast watercolor outside with the kids. It's part of our backyard.

Rainy Day

Renata is into doing her own hair and picking out her clothes for the day. She is also becoming quite the tree climber.

George is into imitating his brother. In this picture he managed to steal his brother's army hat and rifle for the 3 seconds it wasn't on Joffre's head. He pretends to shoot like Joffre even if it is with a toy asparagus.

The top picture is before the hair cut the bottom is after. What a handsome lad. Joffre watches an old tv show from the 60? called Combat with his dad . The show follows a platoon? during WW2.So Joffre is crazy about being the good American who shoots the bad guys. Unfortunately he thinks the bad guys are the Germans. we're working on that one. He also loves to compliment me by saying, "Mom, you are such a healthy woman." and gives me a kiss . We pray for our friends to be strong and healthy so now he thinks this is a compliment.

We've been having beautiful weather the past week, 70 degrees and sunny. Today is rainy and I've been trying to keep the kids from running in the house. I gave some long needed hair cuts to the boys , we painted pictures (George just tried to eat the paint, the brush and drink the paint water.), and we made banana pudding. I'm running out of ideas and it's only 10am.

I haven't come out of the woods yet. My "better" post was a bit premature. I'm still feeling a bit of nausea, but it's been better. I have been thinking of some posts but feeling a bit too blah to bother. I'm determined to do better though. I wanted to post this cool picture of a felted deer by my friend Kendra. Isn't it cool?

We have also had some drama at the bookstore a couple of nights ago. A drunk driver ran into the front of the store and took out our steps. Thankfully no one was injured including his 10 yr old son and wife who were in the car with him. He was arrested and the news came. Luckily, Joffre was the only one in the store at the time. He said it felt like a tree fell on the store. The damage to the store was minimal. I feel really sorry for the boy.
