February Update

Busy, busy, is high time I updated the blog! (Sorry it's been so long, grandmas!) All is well here. We had a great weekend...yesterday we went to Eugene for the Asian Celebration. It was very fun, we met some nice people from Taiwan. We've all been dodging illnesses here and there, with some success...but so far, we've been much healthier than we were last winter. Hope you are all doing great!

First and foremost, drumroll...look at the big kid!

First thing this morning, regular smile:

And at bathtime tonight! His tooth was really bugging him while he ate yesterday and today, so before he ate lunch today he told Ryan it was ready to come out! It came out easily and he is back to chowing down without interruption.
And here is Miss Trouble. She has a little Band-Aid obsession going on.

We visited my mom today for lunch. It was a beautiful day! These are the baby chickens that will be providing us with eggs before we know it. (She is keeping them at her neighbor's house--it's already all perfectly set up for poultry.)

Planter Box Project

Working back in time...a couple of weeks ago, I ordered some planter boxes for our alley. They are great! They're made by an Oregon company from Oregon-grown wood (I'm a sucker for things like that). We set them up in a full-sun area in our alley to grow veggies in. I planted peas and spinach today!

1) Seven boxes of boards:

3) Start stacking boards, insert pins:

4) Pound in pins:
