1 – The blossoms on our tree from last month have turned into little baby apples!
2 – Day one of the 30 Day Squat Challenge is done. I added crunches to it, so I did 50 of each this morning.
3 – How perfect is this rose? I love having roses in my garden! And they’re not as difficult or temperamental as I thought they would be. What a beautiful peach color.
4 – These are definitely my favorite. Peonies remind me of my grandma and my mom. Plus they smell sooo good. Too bad they don’t stick around for too long.
5 – Look who’s learning to climb the stairs. Those arms at the top of the picture are Seth’s, encouraging Peter to keep going. You’re almost to the top!
6 – Eventually, lunchtime grapes end up in their stomachs, but they start out as a funny joke to make their cheeks “chubby.” I think it actually makes them look like they just got their wisdom teeth pulled.
7 – One of Peter’s many expressions. “Are you talkin’ to me?”
8 – Play time with Dad before he goes back to work after lunch.
9 – I’m participating in a quilters’ round robin. There are 7 of us spread out all over the country, and each of us put together the center block. Then it gets sent to the next person and they add some kind of border. I received this quilt with the huge green border on 2 sides and had to figure out what to do with it. Challenge? Yes. Impossible? No. I added the smaller border of “snowball” blocks to bring back a little whimsy, hoping they resemble some kind of Christmas confection to tie in with the gingerbread man. Time to send it on!
10 – My other sewing project has an upcoming deadline. I’m going to Girl’s Camp this summer, and I’m the designated apron maker. I’m almost done sewing 6 aprons for all the cooks in Head Shed. They’re gonna be cute!
11 – Seth and Lydia got to take a bath in the big tub in the master bathroom, and Peter watched the whole time, wishing he could be in there too!
12 – I’m going visiting teaching this week, and I decided to share the first presidency message from the Ensign instead of the visiting teaching message. This is a great message from President Uchtdorf about having and using spiritual landmarks so we can move forward instead of aimlessly walking in circles.
