A Sweet Giveaway!

This is a mandatory item so I can be entered into the giveaway. I have included some pictures of JuneBug & Peanut to sweeten the post.
~~~
On the Azure Standard blog they are giving away a huge prize pack full of better-for-you-sweeteners. You can check it out for yourself here. I'm entering the giveaway because I would really like to try some sucanat. I've heard a lot of good things about it. Some of the other stuff I would share with others because I wouldn't know how to use it. But I can definitely smell some molasses cookies right now.....
Oh, and if you do happen to enter tell them you read about it here and I'll get an extra entry! Thanks!

The Prayer of a 2 Year Old


"Our Gracious Father please help me go to Pop-pum's house and eat goldfish with Pop-pum. Please cleanse me from my sins. With all our strength. In Jesus' name Amen. Oh, I forgot. Please help it to be Mommy's birthday. In Jesus' name Amen."

The topic of our conversations lately has been visiting Pop-pum and Mum-mum around my birthday....and the things we will do when we get there.

5 Months Old

Peanut is 5 months old this month and I thought I would capture a few photos.
Brothers
Drool is a very common thing for Peanut and thus, so are wet shirts.

Peanut is reaching out for toys and other items now

Peanut Post

 Deer in the Headlights look
 It is really cute to wake up and see him looking across at you
Peanut can get around quite quickly going backwards in his walker. JuneBug likes to push him around and give him toys.

Garden Update

The garden expansion project is almost complete now.
 When we last saw the garden on the blog it looked like this
 Then last week T-man and Marf came over. They wanted to help me on my project. They asked me if they could help.
 They all enjoyed using the tools Great-Uncle John sent down.

If JuneBug saw one of them using a tool he thought might be fun he would want to trade. The tool always looked "greener" in someone else's hand.
 We finished it!
  My helpers #1
 My helpers #2

On the weekend Ike helped me move the railroad ties around.
 We had an extra one stored underneath that carport. We don't know why or can't remember what made us buy 5 ties originally. But we did and I'm glad we had it.
 Every time Ike moved it JuneBug would jump on and walk across it. He was helping.

 Move the railroad tie step #1
 Move the railroad tie step #2
 Move the railroad tie step #3. Ike only moved it this way a couple of times because eventually he found and easier more efficient way of going.
This is where it is at today. I need to put in the bricks to finish off the end but that shouldn't take any time at all. Then we can start planting!!!!
