Lost and Found

I found my camera after I lost it (again) for a few weeks. I forgot about some funny stuff.

1. Christmas. Big I in his jammies always makes me laugh.

2. Good soil is the secret to growing 'em big and healthy.

3. Plenty of sleep helps too.

4. Speaking of growing things big and healthy, I wanted to transplant this Swiss Chard into a pot since it was the only thing left in one of my raised beds. I should have known when I couldn't pull it out on the first try to leave it there, then the second try after digging, and then a third. Finally the tap root just popped. It had grown past the 11 inches of fill soil into the sub-soil. No telling how long it was. Probably went all the way to China...or Switzerland as the case may be.

Big I refused to hold it, it was bigger than him.

5. Then there was the lettuce incident a few weeks ago. A minute after I got done taking this lovely picture,

I turned around to this - Gah! :

Nevermind, they looked like this the next day anyway:

Rockin' Out

Does anyone else find this really adorable?

The thing you didn't hear is him shouting "Yea!" when the crowd on the screen does.

Thankfully they don't do this too often...killing brain cells and all.

Of course, this is all when he's not on the lookout in the fort.

Aaand we're back

Due to multiple requests from adoring fans, I'll try to muster some motivation to blog again.

Let's see, what did we miss? Oh yeah, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, etc. etc. Big I still didn't get the concept of Christmas yet this year, but that doesn't mean he didn't make out like a bandit. We got a new shelf to store his toys in the family room.

We also got some new shelves for books and 'stuff' in the living room.

What else is new?

New raised beds are out in the yard, but it's too gray of a day to take pictures. Have some seeds in already too.

We also got some patio furniture finally. Again, too gray, but it's this set.

We also put an addition on the house.

Okay not really, but the box from the patio futniture made an awesome fort for Big I. (Pardon the blurry picture.)
(He's still working on his social smile for the camera.)
