These things make me Happy!

Cherries Galore! Aren't they beautiful. It was so much fun canning with Jayne and Hannah. Thanks Caleb and Bill too for the hot & heavy lifting. Now those of you who get cherry pie from me will know I REALLY love you!

One pot at a time.

A happy moment for Jonah. He's such a cutie!

So the next few pictures are why I love living in Timber Lakes.
If you ever need a get away...come visit.
Every time I leave the city, I breath deep and relax, cause I know I'm going home to this...

My backyard. Enough said.

okay, another.

A gentlemoose visitor. Taken from the deck.

Can you tell their antlers are still in velvet.

SSSHHH! What is that crazy human doing crawling on her belly across the deck to get a picture!

We have done a little landscaping. We can't water grass here, so I'm left with decorative rocks and potted plants. A work in progress.

Bill's artistic side!

My pretty front porch

Levi and I made these wall boxes. I love them.

Bill gave me these planters for Moms day.

30 Years of Daddihood!

The whole gang was up on Sunday. That makes for a very fun, noisy day.
Happy 30th Fathers Day to Bill. Didn't you have hair like Zachary's at one time?

AND happy Papa day! The best part of Papahood is sending them home (sometimes)!

OR sharing rhubarb pie!

Dad and his boyz (and Emmy).

Makes me proud! (Mom)

On Saturday, our friend Nate, let us pick his cherry tree. Even though it was raining, we scored big with the pickins. Emmy discovered tree-candy!

Thanks Kate for going up the ladder - battling the hairy cherry spiders!

Jonah are you happy? You've got books, cards, toys, drinks and yummies. Yep, he's happy for the moment!

Emmy's job was to pick out the leaves - and spiders. Thanks Ems!

Jayne was having way to much fun. Is this the mommy of two?

Where's monkey? He's in there!

This tree was awesome. I'll post the bottled results asap!

It's late...

It's late and I can't sleep, so here are some random pics from my camera. Enjoy!
The almost constant rain has made for an unusual lushness around here. Yes, this is Utah and we're loving it!

This little guy was at my house this week and was a good helper (sort of). Leland loves sweeping!

Hey Leland, you missed a spot to the left there!

Bill took this great shot from our front yard. We've been seeing lots of rainbows this spring.

Bill and I organized a 'road home' clean up day for our community. These are all the folks that showed up to help. We live in a great (clean) place! You can check us out at

Gardening Time

Posted on 8:20 PM

Okay, so most of you are well into gardening, but please remember one month ago we were still getting snow!
Our family has made a big commitment and acquired a garden plot from the city. It is a whopping 14 feet X 24 feet. We have planted potatoes, beans, cucumbers, carrots, radishes, tomatoes and corn. Oh, and a pumpkin. I will get more pictures when it doesn't look like we're growing dirt.

Okay, so here is a question you can respond to: What would be THE best straight from the garden meal?
For dad and I it would be corn on the cob, watermelon and raspberry topping on ice cream! Yummm!
