A new member of the family

I swore I would not take longer than a six month blog break. Well, I stand corrected it has been nearly 12 months. Where has the time gone you wonder? Did the garden go dormant for the year. Ohhhh NO!! Far from it, the garden is quite bountiful.

Let me fill you in on some of the going ons in our garden:

We have been tending to new life!!!

First let me introduce you to the newest member of our family. She is four weeks old and as beautiful as a garden butterfly. We did not expect to be able to have any more addittions to our garden. God saw we needed an extra special blessing and granted us a beautiful baby girl on August 16th!! She is very content, sweetnatured, and happy. She is even letting Mrs. Busy Bee get 4-5 hour strtches of sleep at night. YEAH!!!

Sweet pea and little sprout are taking to her very well. They are kind and gentle. Perhaps causing a little more mischief but helping tend to our little butterfly as well.

We have finally finished up remodeling. One month shy of two years, yes that is not a typo. Our builder took 2 years to complete the project. We are glad it is finished. Scarecrow just has a few projects left on the interior like tiling the master bathtub and guest shower, refinishing the stair treads in wood (getting rid of the carpet, yehaw!) and putting up some trim.

We celebrated eleven years of tending our garden just five days ago. My that time has gone quickly!

Overall we are continuing to tend our growing garden, feel overwhelmingly blessed, thankful, and joyful. We will aim to keep you updated on our garden happenings weekly not yearly.

I agree with your sister, you should post the remodel.
