April's End

This is a picture of the view down the valley from our new lot in Omak. It is only 2 acres, long and narrow, so it will be a big change from what we are used to, it will be fun though. Mike took his riding lawn mower down to mow off the grass...we found a bunch of asparagus too...Bonus! We are looking for just the right house plan so Mike can get started building..

 We went down to Cashmere so Mike could help out with Jessie's shop. We girls decided to go yard saleing on Saturday morning. Emma's first yard sale trip accompanied by her mama and both grandmas. We let the guys continue with their work.

 The next day Jesssie, Becky and Mike finished up setting the posts. In all they set 18 poles in 4 foot holes 2 feet wide. The cement will be poured in the holes next.

 This is the reason I went to Cashmere...Just look at that sweet face!!

Off to the Prairie

Last week we went to visit our sweet little Sophia and her Momma & Daddy. She is walking all over now and getting quicker and quicker! We got to watch her while her Momma was at work, she was perfect. We took her walking in her stroller and she zonked out by the end of the block.

  She is so happy to be walking!! Just look at that face :).

 Mike was helping Kelly build a privacy panel on their deck and a dog run off the side so Sophie would be able to have a nice yard to play in. They moved the steps around, put up a fence and built a couple of gates.
The ramp is for the dogs to use to get off of the deck, and the little fence will keep them off of the yard and Sophie out of their area. It will look really nice when it is finished and the lawn greens up.

Humming Bird Cake and Sweetie Pie

I made a Humming Bird Cake for dinner last night and it was pretty good! I'd been wanting to try it, so since I was having a family dinner I decided to make it.
3 layers of moist yummy cake with cream cheese frosting.....Delicious!
This little Sweetie Pie was up for a visit with her Momma and Daddy.

So sweet in her little Easter Dress..
She is not real happy about trying on the poncho I made her...she can't get to her hands!
But she is sure cute in it and it fits pretty good and will for quite awhile...I hope she will start to like wearing it.
