"WE NEED MORE WIPES - WE NEEDS SOME WIPES ALL OVER UP IN HERE ANY WHICH WAYS YOU CAN...I MEAN THEM WIPES IS NEEDED BAD!!"

2 new additions to our family

i'm so excited to announce that....we got two new fruit trees! :)

meet mr. eureka lemon tree



and mrs. juicy pomegranate


we are really looking forward to raising these two special spirits and are especially excited for all the yummy fruit they will give us!  we wanted to get like 6 other trees at the nursery but they are not cheap, so maybe another week when our budget is replenished :)

of course we can't forget our other yard family members who were so good to us last year: mr. cherry tree and his son junior, mr and mrs plum, ms. pear and miss apple, (who i hope will be more giving this year since we didn't get to eat any of her apples last year before the birds got them).  oh, and we love you too strawberries and blueberries.


have i ever said how thankful i am to have a yard where we can plant and grow what we want?  well, I AM!  i love having food storage that we grow ourselves.  up next: finishing the vegetable garden!

just 3 little things

sometime i'm actually going to get around to posting some "for reals" posts, but for now i will just say:
1. we have started sleep training the babies (ie letting them "cry it out").  this is the second night and yes, they're crying as i type, but somehow i feel a total sense of freedom knowing it's ok for me to do this and it's good for both of us.  last night was the first time in their lives i think that they went to sleep on their own!
2. i just read on facebook that my SIL ashley is having a baby boy in august and i am SOOO super duper excited.  yay for a new nephew!
3. i think i'm going to make this tomorrow and i'm hoping it really does taste like thai food!

good night!
