A Very Rocky Evening

What an eventful day. Griff and I both worked and came home and started our new rock border around our flower beds. Those rocks were HEAVY!!! We managed to ge the rock done in the front yard and tomorrow night we plan on getting the back flower beds done. Benjamin has been a big help by putting the rocks in the back of his John Deere motorized tractor (it's so cute to watch him). Anyway, the reason why we did it tonight and tomorrow night is because on Saturday we are going on a train ride called the Cottontail Express. The Easter Bunny is going to be on it handing out Easter candy. It's going to be fun. Sunday it is suppose to rain (60% chance). I will post pictures of our progress, so stay tuned.

Who is this???....Could it be Sanjaya?

Who does this remind you of??? I will give you a hint....American Idol. Doesn't this remind you of Sanjaya Malakar. I just don't understand how he is getting so far in the competition??? He isn't that good. Is he trying to make fun of American Idol?? I will have to agree with Simon on this one ...If he wins, Simon isn't coming back on the show and I refuse to watch it. I have liked everyone who has won American Idol...Even though, last year I would have liked Chris to win. Taylor Hicks was my second choice. I just hope anybody but him will win American Idol this year.

Benjamin learning Karate

Benjamin has started new activity....Karate. He is in the Little Dragon class. It is for 3-4 year olds. He loves it so far. We get the first month free, so Benjamin can try it out. I like it because the don't require you to sign a contract, like most of them do. There are 7 kids in his class. He does it once a week. We will see how he does. I haven't taken any pictures yet, but I will soon.

Weekend Yard Work

I promised pictures and here they are. We created this bed...I know, I know, where is the color?? It looks so bland. We are going to put flowers in a couple of weeks. The flower shops didn't have that many flowers because it's still a little early. It took us a half a day to create. Our next step is putting stones around the edge of all the beds in the yard.

Warm weather and Flower Beds

I haven't posted anything in awhile. There has been beautiful weather here in Huntsville,AL. It has been in the 70s, close to 80s. It's suppose to get colder by the weekend, but after that, the weather man says it's going to pretty much stay warm! WOOHOO!! We were busy this past weekend. We made a new flower bed in the back of the house. I love it!!! It sure does make a big difference. I will most likely post a picture stay tuned!! The weekend before we rented an aerator and aerated the yard. So now all we need is the Scotts man to come and fertilize and we are good to go.
