Just a few pictures from the week...

Gracie loves to stand up, which means we spend a lot of time helping her stand up:)

My little crawler...

Gracie will NOT hold still for diaper changes at all. She rolls, crawls.. whatever she has to do to get away... I just couldn't resist:)

We bought a computer from someone for a really good price. Everything was included except for the monitor... someone recently let us have their old monitor.. think we might need a bigger desk now?:) (for the record, this is the same desk I have had since elementary school!)

Gracie loves her daddy...

Starting our garden!

The weekend is ALMOST here! I'm so looking forward to sunshine and projects! We are starting to work on our garden this weekend. Last night Matt got our plot of ground ready and we are going to work on it more this weekend. I can't wait to start planting!

Is anyone else planting a garden? This will be our first year to do it and so I don't know a whole lot. We are planning on doing tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, peppers, some sort of berry maybe.. someone even told me cantaloupe was really easy?? We will see what we end up doing and I'll try and share our progress. If anyone has any tips let me know and I would love to know what you are planting. I also really want to do some herb pots this summer.

I have also been trying to de-clutter my house as well.. I've been taking a drawer, a closet, random basket one at a time when I have a few minutes and just sorting through... throwing things away, putting things where they should be!:) It is amazing how much I have been able to accomplish with just a few minutes here or there.

So... all this to say.. what are you plans for the weekend? any spring cleaning projects or yard work?

YAY for SPRING!!!!

Project 365: A Glimpse from the Past 2 weeks...

Gracie is learning to crawl... unfortunately for her she is going in the wrong direction and gets stuck underneath our furniture:(

Matt and Gracie at a fave KC restaurant of ours.. La Bodega!

Gracie eating bananas and playing with her spoon...

Chicken Chili on a cool spring day.. recipe link here! It was WONDERFUL!

Strawberry Hand Pies
.. not the best picture but very delicious, especially with a scoop of ice cream!

Gracie loves her Johnny Jump Jump type swing! I just wish we would have started using it sooner.. My grandma found it at a garage sale and showed us before we had Gracie. Both Matt and I agreed that it looked like some sort of a death contraption.. but now we love it!

Matt has a new toy.. well actually we both do. We finally traded in our 3 year old flip phones and upgraded as well as switched our plans to Sprint. We have a friend who works for Sprint and he hooked us up w/ an awesome plan. So now for less than we we were paying for a measly 500 minutes, no texting, no internet.. we get it all plus double the minutes!

Matt and Gracie just chillin on an 80 degree day.. LOVE that its getting warmer!

Gracie and I prayer walking our town..

Kabobs and fresh pineapple on the grill... Delicious!

Chik Fil A...YUM!

Isn't this outfit so cute?! My mom brought it to Gracie this weekend.. This is when we were out shopping in downtown Lawrence.

This is my blueberry pie I made for dessert.. all from scratch I might add;)(the outer edge of the crust did get a little brown..grr...)

Gracie's First Easter

Here are a few pictures from Gracie's first Easter... It was such a great day! (Oh and yes Gracie has a horrible looking rash in some of these pics across her chest. It's looking somewhat better but we are thinking that it is eczema:( )
