The Ties That Bind

It's funny how fast a baby can grow on you. Even with her "Danny Devito" hairline on top, Olivia quickly won over everyone who came to visit.

She is a hard baby to burp, but for some reason I developed a super burping ability with her.
So everyone handed her to me to burp. Thinking back, maybe they just duped me into doing the hard part!

As you can tell in this picture...I didn't mind at all.

Home And Garden Show

We really love the Home and Garden shows that start up in February each year. How about you? Do you attend them?
Last month, we went to one near Dallas on a Friday afternoon. We spent hours just talking to the vendors and looking at displays.
There were several landscapers with booths that had some interesting displays. My favorite was this rustic looking planter with rock border. The middle was a fountain, but apparently due to my fascination with the rock, I cut the fountain out of the three pictures I took.

This was a temporary display. That's why it's set up in a parking lot. I think this type of rocked-in flower bed would look great with a tree in the center, or the rocks and flowers could line a planting bed. Either way, it got my vote for best at the show.

Number 5

Our newest grand baby was born on 3/7/13... all my lucky numbers! 

Olivia Lula (Livvie Loo)

She's number 5 here with us (and one little angel waiting in Heaven).
