Where Did March Go?

Well between the fact that I started subbing again and that it feels like someone was sick all month this past month just snuck by, but I still have some fun memories to post so we're backtracking a bit.

In March we added some new sprinklers to our front lawn.  Neither Brandon or I are very good with the whole landscaping thing but we try and since our lawn has been struggling, to say the least, Brandon decided maybe more water would be the answer.  Sadie loves being outside with Daddy so this was a great Saturday project for us.

Also in March, our washing machine decided to finally give it up.  It was a sad day as we had been limping our old one along for the past year trying not to have to drop money on a new set yet, but it was finally time.  So, Brandon moved the old ones out, quickly remodeled our Laundry Room, and no sooner was it finished than the new set was delivered.  Yay!!!  Who would have thought doing laundry could be so fun.

You can see that there is still a little work to be done such as baseboards and trim but I'm loving that the tile now extends all the way from the side door to the kitchen, that I have a new counter top for the laundry room cabinet, and my beautiful new machines.  Thanks Honey!!!!

Hunting For Eggs

Last Saturday we attended our church's Pancake Breakfast/ Egg Hunt.  We had a great time!  My kids are BIG fans of pancakes and as it turns out if the eggs are filled with candy they are highly motivated by them as well. 

First, we played with our baskets ...

then we collected our eggs...

and finally we counted our loot.
