OK, with all my problems
the last few weeks we hadn't gottn'
our GARDEN in the ground yet.
Well I am happy to report that:
16 tomato plants
2 red bell pepper plants
6 squash/zuchinni plants
green onions and white onions

Are officially in the ground
and doing well. Only having to
battle one gopher at the moment.

OK, I got my Sewing machine back
after a very rude transaction with the
repair place. Mulqueen Sewing in Mesa.
If you're not a Snow Bird then they
don't want your business.
This picture of the blown up pillow
has a funny story to go with it:
Nate has had this pillow for about 10 years
of our 12 years married. GROSS I KNOW.
He loves and takes it every where with
him when we travel.
For about 2 weeks, I kept finding
these huge nasty looking lint balls
in our bed, on the floor and in our laudry.
One night I finally told Nate "enough".
So were searched our room. I tell
Nate to strip the bed so I can wash all
the linens and we find his pillow
covering has desintegrated. Mystery Solved.
Chase had some visitors over Spring Break.
His Grandma Ruffi, his Aunt April and
cousin Amanda from New Mexico.
He also had a friend named Flat Stanley
from school with him.
He went everywhere with us for 2 weeks.

To garage sales, to visit Nana Cluff in Rehab,
to practice baseball games, to eat dinner,
shopping for cleats, and sliding underware.

This is the 2009 Opening Ceremonies for
the Little League. Chase was so cute
in his uniform.
During the first game, he won't stay off
the ground. I tell him to stay off it and
he tells me he's supposed to get dirty.
Then he slides into home and misses
the plate by about 2 feet. His slide
ran out of umpf. He had to get up and
hustle the rest of the way to the plate.

Here's Chase with his class at
the park hunting eggs and playing games
the Friday before Easter. The whole
1st grade walked there and had a blast.

Chase coloring eggs in his underware.
Not sure what that was all about.

Chase in his robe on Easter morning
hunting eggs.

The "Girls" at the Easter picnic
on the 96 Ranch. So tired
the slept on the ground.
They had fun.

The Famous Pit that we did every
year to pit BBQ some
Javelina, Chicken and a Ham.
It was all YUMMY.

Chase and Bailey hunting eggs in the
wash. Addie and Caeda were still

Enough for now, will post more later.

Ok, life has been CRAZY...
the vacuum blew up...
my new sewing machine died...
Nate and I now have the WEBELOS,
not the Bears, quick change.
I just got used to the whole BEAR thing.
Now I gotta learn about the WEBELOS.
Chase has his first game next Tuesday.
His Opening Ceremonies are this Saturday.
My dear sweet Nana fell and broke
her pelvis and is in rehab. She's not to
happy about it either. She has a really
funny roommate who leaves today
so I'm sure she'll get into a little trouble.
Chase needs new shoes. New sandals,
new sneakers, new flip flops.
The poor kid
has another ear infection and is on a
steriod again and it makes him soooo
irritable and grumpy. It triples his
I saw the new OB/GYN. He was
awesome. I have to go back in a few
weeks. If the bleeding is under
control and if there isn't anything
really bad on the CT then I can hold
off on the surgery for the fibroid and
bent ovary that is attached to the
scar tissue from my C-section and
Pretty much if I can deal with the pain
I can wait and do what I want.
Excited but worried. Not much time.
This is it, if I can't get pregnant in the next
12 months then it''s
Kinda torn about this. But it's all in
Heavenly Father's hands now.
Fortunately, Dr. Falk has great
links to very reasonably priced
fertility specialists, even if you
don't have insurance. So we'll have to
wait and see.
I don't want to be the next
OCTO MOM so we'll be
conservative and see what surprises
life brings:
