a plentiful day

while the rest of the country is in the middle of winter, our little desert climate is getting ready for spring. january is the time to plant trees, fruit trees, fertilize your lawn and even plant rose bushes.
yesterday ty took sick old me (really quite miserable still) into town to get a gander at our baby via the routine ultrasound. we left my mom with all three kids, two of whom are sick also. (thanks again mom) we sat there once again, gratefully looking at the miracle of life on a computer screen. the baby looked perfectly healthy and wiggled like a crazy person. halfway through the ultrasound he/she decided to hide behind my pelvic bone as he/she was done with the show.

we then did the required costco trip, so tiring. but hit up our favorite nursery to purchase rose bushes and some trees for our yard (thank you tax returns!).  i finally feel like we are putting our stamp on our little place. we read the directions over and over on how to "plant" a tree, (i know we're young) and then went to it. well, ty did and i happily watched.
