It's been a long time!

I can’t believe it’s been more than a month since my last post! I don’t know why, but I just haven’t felt up to it lately for some reason. However, there hasn’t been too much going on, so I didn’t miss out on any huge events. I did manage to keep my camera handy so I could at least document some because I knew I would come back to my blog! Just to get everything going again, here is a cute picture of Maggie with her new frog toy. She was absolutely thrilled with her frog. Alex got a new bear toy that she was very jealous of. However, in true Maggie fashion she had both of them destroyed within a week. They now have matching mallards! It’s really cute.

Yesterday we had two trees put in our backyard to add some more shade and landscaping. We got a Maple Tree and a Crepe Myrtle.

Frank also had some Zoysia sod laid by the back gate and was excited enough to take a picture of it. Actually, I think he cares more about the grass than the trees.

The dogs must take after him because they were also only interested in the new grass. However, after Maggie got tired of sniffing the grass she started rubbing her face in the mulch under the tree. What is wrong with that dog?? We can’t help but love her.

Last week Frank surprised me by sending a beautiful set of petite roses to my office. I was so sure it was a mistake when the receptionist told me that I had a package to pick up, but it turns out that my husband is just incredibly sweet and wanted me to feel special and spoiled. It worked. :) Aren't they beautiful! I think they are my new favorite flower.

The only other event in the last month was my sister Amy's 27th birthday. She had a few friends over for a relaxing Saturday evening in our PJ's. We ate some snack foods, played a game, opened presents, and watched a movie. It was nice to stay in and just lounge around.

My mom has a long-standing joke with Amy and I that she not only can't remember how old we are, but she likes to round - so she bought Amy candles for the cake that said "29". Kelly fixed it, though, with some simple subtraction.

Yea - we're glad your back in the blogging world. Happy to hear that things are still going well up in Melissa. School assignments have finally caught up with Danny (Welcome to DTS) and we're anxiously waiting for the cooler weather! We should get together soon to let the BFFs hang out and talk theology! :-)
