Plant Nerd

I've turned into a huge plant nerd. I'm still geeking out over these lilies! I can't believe I grew these! They are amazing and I can't wait for one of the stalks to bloom all the way so I can cut it and bring it inside!

Happy 4th of July 2019

This year for the 4th, we went over to Nana and Grandpa's for our annual BBQ. It's always fun to be surrounded by family, and to watch all those cousins play! I'm so grateful for the country that we live in, for the freedoms we enjoy, and for all those who work to protect those freedoms and uphold our laws. Thank you for all that you do. YOU make our country great. I'm super proud to be married to one of those modern day warriors ♡

My mom made the boys these cute shirts! Mason's says, "I'm the youngest. The rules don't apply to me."

Canning Cherries

This year Ryan decided he wanted to try canning cherries. There's a local lady who sells fruit in bulk for great prices in the summer, so we bought a bunch of cherries from her and helped Daddy can them up! I didn't think the boys would help much... I didn't want to help much myself if I'm being honest 😆. But Kender wanted to help pull the stems off the cherries, and once Rhett saw us all working together he wanted in on the fun too. It went by so much faster with the boy's help!

Garden Growing and Butter Making

Our garden is growing! It's so exciting to see everything pop up and get bigger. It's going much more slowly than I'd like, but I'm trying to be patient... We need more sun. And probably more nutrients in our soil. This is our first year here, so our soil is mostly clay + manure and doesn't have much else in it yet. I've been adding Epsom salts and mulch every so often and the plants seem to like that. 

All of our squash varieties. We have zucchini, spaghetti squash, big pumpkins, and little decorative pumpkins.
