Busy Day

During Spring Break, we went to Lowe's to go look around. Dangerous for us, because we always find something there we "need". Anybody with me on that? We have written several checks to them lately. Spent quite a bit with all the painting and re-doing we've had going on. And if you don't know what I mean, you haven't talked to me recently! tee, hee So....back to my original story. We were at Lowe's looking around a few days ago, out in the garden center and looked at the trees. I have been wanting a peach tree for quite awhile, so we were just looking around. We found a huge magnolia tree that was a in a 27 gallon bucket and was only $179! Well, it wasn't going to fit in the trunk of my car, and since we are impulse buyers, thought we'd better just wait. And the more I thought about it, the more I thought that is just such a cheap price, and I wanted to get it. So, after church this morning, John was out in the backyard digging a hole.
As was I.

No help here, but lots of moral support.

More moral support. They were quite concerned that the hole was for them at first, because we didn't actually have the tree while we were digging. However, I have a wonderful brother who does have a pick-up and let me borrow it to go get the tree this afternoon.

Here we go.....told you it was big!!! I bet it's at least 15 feet tall. And boy, was it heavy! But I LOVE it! Thanks hubs for digging a big hole!

Rainy Start to Spring Break

Today is the first official day of Spring Break, and it's rained buckets outside, and even snowed at times. Hunter has a pair of rain boots that we broke down and bought him at Target about a month ago. Every spring he has begged for some and we always said no, but gave in this year. Today was the perfect day to test them out.
Janae actually asked for a picture this time, so I had to oblige.

Her boots......

And last but not least, a dopey dog who has been inside all day!!

Happy Spring Break!!!

Dr. Seuss week

We're having Dr. Seuss week at school. This morning for breakfast The Grinch and The Cat in the Hat came to visit.
Notice who is NOT in any of the pics. Janae went straight to the library, she wanted nothing to do with these characters! I thought it was cute!! Hunter got a picture, then he was finished and ready to go on to class. There were lots of kids getting autographs, but hardly any parents there taking pictures. That surprised me, I really thought that the younger kids would have their parents there with them. Oh well, guess it's too early and too busy for most of them.
