Spring has Sprung...and then disappeared!

Miss Amy (Luke's mom) came and stayed with us the weekend of the 21-22. Because it was Good Friday, she was able to come in on Thursday night and stay through Saturday afternoon. We had a wonderful visit, and we put her to work! I had to work Friday night, so while I took a nap, they dug up a garden! It is so big, they also worked on it all day Saturday! We are planning on growing tomatoes, corn, okra, peas, squash, and Luke is letting me through in some zinnias and sunflowers. I am so excited and can't wait to plant! Her birthday was the week before (while we were in CO), so we were able to celebrate that as well. I could kick myself for not taking more pictures!! I am so lucky to have such a wonderful MIL that is so willing to help us. She is one of the most patient and kind women I have ever met. We love you, Miss Amy!!For Easter, Blake came in town for 24 hours! I fell asleep while they were dying eggs, but they did wake me up to get a few cute ones done. Blake (bless his heart) is one of the smartest boys I know...minus common sense. He pulled 12 raw eggs from the fridge and he and Jake dyed those. The only good side is that it left Meg, Luke, and I 24 BOILED eggs to dye by ourself!! Blake was not blessed with common sense :)

On Sunday, we went to my Nannie and Pawpaw's new house for lunch. I made turnip greens (Luke's fav), banana pudding, and bird's nest (like haystacks but I added jellybeans! Yum!) We had fun playing with the twins and hanging out with our family that we don't see nearly enough!!My Mom's birthday was March 27, we and all went and ate at Osaka! It was delicious, as always! I made symphony brownies, and as you can tell, Mom was very excited! She is so much fun and makes me look forward to being a Mom myself! Yea for Moms and their Bdays! It is always so much fun to celebrate people that are so fabulous!
Last but not least, my birthday is next Saturday. Miss Amy, Katie, & Michael came in town tonight to take me to dinner for my birthday (and to pick up Miss Amy's computer that Luke fixed :) We went to Firebirds...My Favorite!! Their BLT Salad is fabulous, and the creme brulee cheesecake is to die for! We had a wonderful time visiting, and we didn't even put them to work!

As you might notice, we have an addition to our dog family. Jake bought a papillon-rat terrier mix named Ella Poppitt Bousson. He had saved the end of his Christmas $$ to buy something special, and she is definitely that! She is adorable (as if you couldn't tell!). The second picture is from last night. We had a birthday party/girl's night for Eden and Rachel! We went and saw Ms. Pedigrew lives for a day and then had cake and ice cream. The movie was so cute! I LOVE Amy Adams, and she was adorable once again (if you haven't seen her in Enchanted, go rent it Today!) The last picture is our pitiful dog watching the rain today. We fogged our house and were trying to air it out, and he just couldn't stand it!

Now I am just waiting on this "Spring" weather to remain springy!

P.S. In my previous Spring Break post I forgot one MAJOR sweet sister and parents took care of our precious dog. Thank you so much for giving him the attention he needs and the treats too. Bandit loves yall dearly (and I loved the nightly pics texted to my phone :)

Home...Where the flowers grow a little taller, the moon shines a bit brighter, the love feels great big, and grandma's eyes are blue...

I love the pictures! Did your mom save our Happy Birthday voicemail? I think Bandito would like to sing with it?

I LOVE Ella Poppitt. I want to meet her before her puppy breath is gone. Is that weird?

Love you
