Do you have a green thumb?

For years I've tried and tried to develop a green thumb.
I'm beginning to think that a green thumb must be something
you are born with and not something you can learn.
But you know what?
I keep trying!

About a month ago I planted some sweet pea seeds
in one of those seed starting trays that you can buy.

See?  It says Professional!
That's me alright!

This is what the plants looked like just a few days after planting.

Yesterday I transplanted all those little plants into thier own little pots.
And I'm just crossing my fingers hoping that I can keep them alive
and thriving for another few weeks or so.
I'm hoping to use them as decorations for a gathering I am having.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if they were actually flowering?????
I know, I know...Wake UP!
I must be dreaming again!
Hope springs eternal in my soul!

Oh MAN! 250 blog posts!

As Easter day is slipping away
I take time to count my blessings.

I am so blessed to have my children live in the same town.
Here we are just after Easter dinner.

Don't I have a beautiful family? 
And have I mentioned lately that my family is growing?
Mia is pictured here at 27 weeks. No you can't see her yet,
she's still got a little bit of growing to do before she comes
out to greet the world. 

26 years ago on this day MY family grew when
Brian was born.
Here he is sharing his birthday cake with a
nephew and niece.
Birthdays are always more fun when you can share it with a child or two!

Saturday night we celebrated Brian's birthday with family.
Dinner at home and then off to the Coyote's game.

While at the game I came across a TRUE FAN!

Look at this sweet little face posing behind a Coyote's cutout player.

But THIS is the funny part:

A pint sized fan!  What a cutie!
