4 more days...

“On vacations: We hit the sunny beaches where we occupy ourselves keeping the sun off our skin, the saltwater off our bodies, and the sand out of our belongings.” Erma Bombeck
It is that time again for our annual trip to the beach with our best friends in the whole wide world, Carrie and Darron. I am so ready to relax for a few days and will have lots of pictures to post. Everyone have a happy and safe 4th of July!

What's growin' on...

Arden and I love tomatoes, but homegrown ones are the BEST! So we are trying our hand at a little gardening...and so far it has been a success! Our wonderful neighbors, Jerry and Shirley, gave Arden some tomato plants a few weeks ago when they were doing their planting. So I planted them in Miracle Grow", stuck and tied them up and off they went. They are growing like crazy! I can't wait to make a bologna and tomato sandwich with these babies!!! Maybe next year we will expand...who knows we might even catch up with Auntie P!

For everyone out there who needs this...

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)


My baby the ball player!

This is Arden's fourth year to play ball at Morrison, and Mike and I have coached the last three. We love sports around our house and if you have met my husband, you know that I am in no way exaggerating! He eats, sleeps and breathes everything sports.

So now onto why I am posting...to brag! She hit her first homerun last week, then a grand slam in the next game and TWO home runs tonight! I cannot tell you how proud we are of her!! GO ARDEN!!
