April 28, 2009

We were pretty busy this month!

We had a pretty good wind storm that claimed many shingles in the neighborhood (thankfully not ours) and our back fence.

lots of fence to put up!

We first dug out two truckloads of dirt from the back corner. The owners before us had some kind of pond and left a big pile of dirt that sloped and was pushing on the fence.  With some help, Danny dug holes and concreted in new posts. Our neighbor kitty-corner to our backyard offered some help as our fence was supporting his. He was a BIG help. Sydney loved playing in the yard while we helped.

Syd was a good hinder, I mean helper.

I made these lovely eggs using a pattern I found here. They were really easy and I learned some new skills. I put them out in the yard with the candy-filled plastic eggs on Easter.

I also made Nick a Sunday shirt. He looked so handsome on Sunday and received many compliments on his tie.

We took a trip to Utah in Mid-April to visit Danny’s siblings. Jill is officially engaged and we finally got to meet Tommy. We absolutely LOVE him. He and Jill are a great match.

Syd, Nick, and I went with Danny to an appointment with a client that lives up in Idaho City (in the mountains). It was a fun drive, a beautiful view and on the way home we stopped at a dam and I happened to have my tripod and camera in the car! Too bad Kali wasn’t with us (she was at preschool). It would have been a great family photo!

    You guys look great- you need to get together with us next time you hit Utah- if you have the time! I am sorry about your fence- that does look like a lot of work…

    Jade has that same yellow shirt! She can’t wear it anymore here cause it’s too darn hot already. I can’t believe Jill’s engaged! Yea! =)
