Lately....

It's been a while obviously since I last posted. Here are just a couple things we've done lately.
We went to my Grandfather's grave for Memorial Day and put flowers there. It was the first time I had been there since he passed away. He is buried in a "new" section of the graveyard, so there were a LOT of flowers there...it was quite beautiful in a sad way. I think it should always look like that.
Grandfather Cane. Love him. Miss him. I wish he and Mikkelle had had a chance to meet.
On a different topic completely we started out family garden. Mikkelle loved all the little "snakes" (worms)...
This is Mikkelle's personal little garden. Those large things are yellow squash and pumpkins. We thought it would be fun for Mikkelle to pick a pumpkin for her Birthday since it's so close to Halloween : )
She's actually really good at planting seeds and loves to walk around in mud but hates getting her hands dirty lol. Such a girl...but it's ok we got her gardeners gloves...
Most of the vegetables we planted were organic. I wonder if it will make a difference in how they taste.

Mikkelle didn't want us to take a picture of her working...she had to pose for the camera : )




We've been having a lot of fun out here, enjoying the warm weather and spending time as a family. Kelby loves his new job, and I and my mom have really enjoyed working together so far. If you want to see what we've been making you can go to either one of our sites, www.paisleypeaches.etsy.com
or

Love you all. I'll try and be better at updating.

What a HUGE garden!! I'm impressed guys. And what a cute little helper you have there. =) I was thinking about you the other day too because we got the Utah Valley Magazine and in it was a picture of Mikkelle from last year's parade! I had to show my girls, and now we're all missing you!

Haha, such a girly girl! I am so jealous that you got to plant a garden...I'd kill for fresh green beans, squash, zucchini, tomatoes, corn....On a different note: I think cemetery's can be quite peaceful and beautiful. The one where my Mom is has got to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. And Netty's cemetery is so peaceful... And on another different note: I'm pretty sure your Dad has had those sandals (or ones just like them) for as long as I can remember. LOVE IT!

OMG! Lauren can you send me a copy of that magazine! I didn't get anything like that! And I think about you all the time! We miss you a ton.
-Alissa....I agree. It was really peaceful. I have never been to Annette's stone. Where is it? I'd love to go. And tell me about my dad's shoes! HAHA! I KNOW! Good old burkenstocks ....or however you spell it. Jesus Shoes...
