love love love this weather

Life is good. We are loving this St. George spring weather. We put in our garden a few weeks ago. It is like being pregnant...(which I am not) it takes forever and the waiting is killing me. My sweet dad came down and tilled and Mark helped plant the garden. It is beautiful. Now I just hope I don't kill it along with the grubs and the birds. The birds liked my beans. grrrrrrr!!! I think I have to replant them.

The girls love this weather too. While I was gardening they made a lake of mud and wallowed in it like piggies. I had to spray them down and make them strip down before entering the house. LOL! They were a sight.

My awesome Mom came and help us get started on our painting project. We painted the kitchen, living room and hallway. It looks so great. This old house is getting a facelift (thank goodness)

Well Sydney had a birthday, and she didn't get the amazing party she wanted because we were all sick for a bit. But she did get an awesome Rapunzel cake. I will post pics next time. Taking them is easy...getting Mark to download the pictures off his camera....not so easy. :)

Miss you all in PA. Hope all is well.

Hey all,

We are doing well. Sorry I haven't posted for so long. Life is just busy. Mark loves his new job, I love being at home with the girls, Sydney LOVES her new school and teacher, Rowyn doesn't love potty training... and we all love the weather. So needless to say we love St. George. The girls are growing so much. We have a house...we are painting and patching and fixing and building. But soon it will be a wonderful place.

Sydney had her 6th birthday. I can't say how amazing she has been. I am forever grateful to the Lord for bringing this wonderful spirit into my life. She brings joy beyond description. She has this lovely smile that just lights up the room. She grasps the spirit and the theory of reverence for our Savior that just warms my heart. I love this sweet girl so much, and now she is 6 oh let these young years last as long as possible. I pondered the other day what I was doing at this moment exactly 6 years ago. I had no idea what lay ahead. I had no idea how amazing she would be ( i had hoped but never knew how great it could be). My favorite thing about Sydney is that she is a wonderful little missionary. She touches people with her testimony. What a future lies ahead for us. :) I am truly blessed.
