how does your garden grow?

The garden finally is living outside instead of in my living room!
I had such excited eager helpers that things didn't end up in the nice rows I'd imagined in my head but thats ok, everything is growing anyway!

We won!

We won we won we won we won we won (sing that to the pink panther music).

I was so excited about my husband being the week's winner at this little bookstore in Evanston I almost called my Evanston friends to have them drive by and see his name in lights! ( I controlled myself and didn't....mostly).

It was so much fun spending this gift certificate. John thought it was cool because he's never won anything, too bad he's not oh so excited about books. Luckily though, his wife is!

My new Hair

I quite like the change. What do you think?

Presentation time

A couple of the kids are in dog 4-H this year and we've been getting geared up for presentation time. A lot of thought has been put into which photos they want to use for their posters for the presentations. Spencer has decided to not only include info and photos of Molly (his project dog) but also to tell about the other dogs in the family (including Toj who passed away a couple of years ago.) It has been fun to go through the pictures. It is so crazy to me how much I can still miss Toj.
Anyway, 4-H is going so well and it looks like Molly is going to learn enough that we won't have to label her "special". Haha, she really is a smart dog, puppies can just be so ....annoying!
We've been watching a lot of The Simpsons (as always) and today caught the episode where Santa's little helper has to go to obedience school. John was cracking up at how like our dogs Santa's helper is in that episode. Like Corie would say, the line between The Simpsons and reality is oh so thin!!
