Our Kitchen Remodel

We got new granite countertops, and Brian spent the last month adding a backsplash and under-cabinet lighting. The pictures don't really do it justice.

We have a 6 year old!

Aidan turned six years old on March 9th! He was able to invite six friends (since he turned six) to the bowling alley for 3 hours of bowling!


He wanted a Super Mario Bros. theme, with a Yellow Toad cake. This is the first time I've drawn an image on a cake (usually I use the shape pans), but it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be!

Our Garden

Today, Aidan and I started our organic garden, out of recycled egg cartons. For those interested, here are some great directions. When we're ready to transplant them outside, all we have to do is cut the carton into sections and plant them right in the pot. The egg carton will break down in the soil!

We also made a chart (sorry if it's hard to read, I can't figure out how to upload pictures correctly in Blogger) showing what we planted, how long it takes to sprout, the date we might see it sprout, and when the fruit should be ready for harvest.
