Happy 1 year anniversary...

As of today we have been in our new house for one year! We had a brutal awakening this morning around 8:10 a.m. when the smoke alarms went we need to figure out why they went off!! One screaming 4 year old wondering what the sound was and why it was making the horrible noise, a 2 year old still laying silently in bed and mommy and daddy trying to figure out why the alarms sounded for just seconds!!

It's been a great year in this beautiful house. We finally have some nice grass growing in after spending lots of money to hire somebody to add top soil, till and grade the property (two acres) and seed everywhere. We've added some more seed in some areas and will surely have to add more in other areas as we figure out where the patches are going to be. I'll be happy when the grass in nice and thick throughout the entire yard. We finally got some good rain the last couple days, so I've had a break from watering duty for a couple days.....time to get some laundry done!! Expecting more rain on Saturday and praying we get a nice shower again!!

I'm patiently waiting for some fresh tomatoes and peppers from our garden. We will have large tomatoes (not sure exactly what kind they are since the neighbor brought over the starter plants), grape tomatoes, green peppers and red peppers. Yum, yum....can't wait!! Next year I'm planning on a full garden with many more vegetables. This year everything is in temporary gardens because I wasn't planning on a vegetable garden until my neighbor brought over a bunch of tomato and green pepper plants he had left. Since the yard was still in the process of being finished I put the plants in the gardens around the house that I was working on setting up. Looking forward to a full garden next year!!
