How does your garden grow......?

Today we started our seeds for our garden. Last summer we tried the garden in buckets and evereything died. :( Now that we have a bigger yard we are going to do a real garden. :) We are planting: cucumbers, jelly bean tomatoes, green beans, Big Boy tomatoes, pumpkins, red & green peppers and peas. We'll keep you updated on how it goes. I hope we have veggies out our ears this summer. Do you like my kitchen wall color? It's called Peanut Butter.

Happy Easter!!!!!

See What A Morning!!!!

by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

See, what a morning, gloriously bright, With the dawning of hope in Jerusalem; Folded the grave-clothes, tomb filled with light, As the angels announce, "Christ is risen!" See God's salvation plan, Wrought in love, borne in pain, paid in sacrifice, Fulfilled in Christ, the Man, For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead! See Mary weeping, "Where is He laid?" As in sorrow she turns from the empty tomb; Hears a voice speaking, calling her name; It's the Master, the Lord raised to life again! The voice that spans the years, Speaking life, stirring hope, bringing peace to us, Will sound till He appears, For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead! One with the Father, Ancient of Days, Through the Spirit who clothes faith with certainty.Honor and blessing, glory and praise To the King crowned with pow'r and authority! And we are raised with Him, Death is dead, love has won, Christ has conquered; And we shall reign with Him, For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead!

We had some fun tonight coloring eggs. The girls wanted to glitter colored eggs. We bought the kit to glitter your eggs. We got thru 2 eggs and they hated it. YES!!! I hate glitter. One of my friends on facebook said she tye dyed eggs today with her boys. When the glitter bombed I thought we would give it a try. We colored our eggs and let them dry a little. Then we added oil to the colored water and dunked those eggs again.

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter!!!

Little Bakers

Today I let the girls make cookies. You may have heard screaming come from the house if you walked by. Ha! They both made their own full recipe. Madison made chocolate chip and Sydney made oatmeal raisin chocolate chip. Oh my gosh did they make a mess!!!!! I just kept saying your making such a big mess (over and over and over........again.) They told me that means they will be great cooks because Grandma Strunk is messy. LOL!!!! Anyone who knows my Mom knows she can cook......but.......the clean up is.......there are no words. If your reading this Mom we love you and your cooking and the girls think they will be good cooks just like you.
