Happy Birthday

Happy 30th Birthday!!

We are looking forward to David's sisters and brother coming this weekend. Kevin is going to help with the garage. David is having a bunch of guys from work come to help put the roof up on Saturday. Sounds like a busy weekend!!

The girls and their kitties

Rissa in the cart, she was not so sure about it

Much to the girls delight, our kitties have been moved to the garage, so now they can hold them- there are 5

Amber and Rissa discussing "Mommy" things

Rissa and "Patches"

I don't think I will ever get used to the huge creatures around here! We have seen one Recluse spider, but I think this one was something else

David got up the second wall on Saturday. He makes the wall then we lift it up ( I try and 'help' )

Variety of pictures

We have been enjoying such a nice spring. People have said this 'cool' spring is unusual, maybe so us newcomers do not have such a heat-shock! I do think the cooler weather is about over. Today we hit 80 before lunch and it is humid.

The girls think it has been so long since we went to Pa. Amber keeps saying she is 'homesick'. Our next visit is planned for July. We always enjoy visitors though! (:

Enjoy the pictures

I have to apologize, my postings have slowed down. I got caught up on my pictures to put on here, so I have to wait longer to get pictures to publish.
We have replanted our garden, and it is actually growing! The girls were all excited to see our potatoes, peas, corn and green beans coming up. We also have tomatoes, peppers and strawberries. Unfortunately some of the tomatoes died, I was hoping to have some to sell.
Jenny and Rissa are both fighting an ear infection, but seem to be over the worst of it.

Amber "reading" Jenny Bible stories

We have new kittens! This is the only one that the girls can catch, so it is their favorite

Easter Sunday

We spent our Easter with Steve and Edna Stoltzfus. They also moved from Pa to do full time prison work.
Happy Easter!! (not so happy for Rissa)

Best Friends

Jumping on trampoline

South Carolina 'Grandpa and Grandma'
Steve and Edna miss their own grandchildren, so they "adopted" our girls

Rissa had a great time on the trampoline, as you can tell from her screeches!

The last night, they all slept together

Getting rid of extra trees.
Pine trees are plentiful and messy. I have found out the hard way you can't open windows when they are pollinating, yellow dust covers everything!!
