Ain't No April Fools Joke

Nope, this really is a post from me. And there is a good reason I never posted from the rest of January straight through to now. Every post would have said "Today it snowed." and had this photo accompanying it. And since most of you could look out your own windows and see the same thing, what would make my snow any more exciting?

I suppose there would have been a few interesting things mixed in, like seed catalogs, orders and first plantings...

And these two little monkeys who think wrestling on my lap while I try to drink coffee is just the best thing ever.

And the snow *finally* melting (hallelujah thank-you Jesus)

And the tomatoes the kiddos and I planted last week finally coming up.

Not to mention birthdays (I didn't make a thing by the way. Store-bought birthday presents all around. Also, I'm not sewing dresses for the girls for Easter. I'm not even sure who I am anymore.), a trip to the ER (again) for Sprout not two days after my last post. For those interested, he swallowed a penny. And kept saying "Penny stuck fwoat. Hurht." Fortunately it was *not* stuck fwoat, and made it's appearance a few days later.
Then just 10 days ago, the 70 lb. "puppy" decided to buck the rules and try to jump into bed with Biscuit. Which resulted in a humdinger of a scratched cornea.
Best of all though, is one of my sisters got engaged right after Christmas (to her best friends older brother- they've known each other nearly their entire lives, but had only been dating about three and half months), and so every spare minute or two has been spent planning and working on her wedding shower, which at present has a guest list of well over a hundred and before thinking it through, I decided a tea party would be good. And it will be, but I am a HORRIBLE delegator and feel guilty asking people to do things. But it will be fine. And lovely. And there you are.



  1. I've never looked forward to spring so much :-)

    The boys are getting so big!

    I'm loving your seedling pic. I didn't start a single thing this year. I figured we have enough life altering things going on...

  2. Same here and yes, yes you have.

  3. Hey there Bonnie!!! It's me Kelly Bays!! Aka jellybean hahaha!! I heard about all the snow you guys got up there in Ohio!! down here in Kentucky we only one 2 bad snow storms. Oh how is the little ones eye?? I pray it healed OK!!! and are your tomatoes doing well? Looking forward to a update!!! Please come by my blog!! I have been blogging like crazy again!! I really missed it!! May God bless you and your precious family!!


  4. It is good to hear from you! I read your post when you first posted it but, strangely, never commented. Bummer!

    I can't believe how many ER trips you've taken because of your bruiser! You should win an award I think. Ugh! I cringe every time I read about that scratched cornea. I can barely type it. I am not too bad with wounds but eye wounds are another thing entirely. We have a cat that got into a fight with another tomcat and his poor eye got cut open and now it is worthless and gross and blind. Seriously, I gag just looking at him. I pet him looking somewhere- ANYWHERE- else.

    When is the wedding Tea? Are you still in the throws of planning or have things quieted down now? I am sure it will be not only incredibly successful but beautiful, and thoughtful and a most wonderful memory for your sister.

  5. I keep meaning to write you, Missus, but intentions aren't ever getting me anywhere these days. Finally, I decided I'd better pop over here and say howdy to you before summer ends entirely! Maybe this week you are at the beloved fair?!?? Hmmmmm?

    Anyway- been thinking about you lately and how quiet you've been over here. Hope all is well and your summer is going swimmingly. Lots of love~ Rebecca

  6. Your family is so cute! I think we must meet someday! Only problem is you are a bit far away??? Blessing to you and your family.

  7. Checking back in. Hope all is well.
    You've been quiet a long time.
