This and That

A quick update on Josh. We think today he might have had hay fever on top of the strep on top of the pink eye! As the day wore on he seemed to be doing better and better. I put the humidifier in his room tonight so hopefully that will help him (and Me!) sleep through the night.
Here's the baby shower cake I finished last night. I think it turned out really cute. The mom isn't a big fan of pink so we limited the pink and stuck with the purple for the most part. I heard it went over really well!We also picked up and planted a bunch of veggies in our back yard this week. I thought we'd have to give that up this year but when the move got postponed we decided to try and take it on for another year. It saves us money in the summer and I LOVE getting to cook with things I just have to walk outside to get, rather then making a list and driving all the way to the store and having to haul them all inside. Hopefully the boys are learning from this as well. I know they really like watching the plants grow and play in the dirt, at least!
Last, my folks had sent the money to purchase a fire pit for the backyard for Phil for his birthday this year. We took time finding the right one and took a while to figure out prices and all. We finally picked it up this week and got to use it with our friends Adam, Lyndsay and Kaylee tonight. We got to enjoy just a couple s'mores before it started raining. We're really happy with the decision we ended up with and are sure we'll get a lot of use out of it as it gets warmer. Thanks Mom and Dad!

Hey, my grandkids had pink-eye last week, too. Weird.

I absolutely LOVE that baby shower cake. You are so talented, Nicole!
