Faith is like a Little Seed

So tonight for Family Home Evening, we decided that we wanted to try growing our own flowers. We originally received the idea from Jon's brother Steve and we thought that it was a great idea too. All of us went to the store and found the flower box kit and along with the seeds that we found in Texas and we got started as soon as we got home.
First, we started by reading the directions.

Melissa thought that they were quite interesting and kept wanting to play in the dirt.
She even tried to eat one of the dirt packs. She soon realized that it wasn't a good idea.
She even helped her daddy plant the seeds.
Then we poured the water into the container. Melissa loved this part! She was so fascinated. Melissa has recently started crawling and pulling up. She even attempts to stand by herself. We all new it was just at matter of time. She was very interested in what her daddy was doing she went on over and decided to see for herself.
She took the opportunity to grab one of the soaked dirt pods. She wasn't sure about since it was wet and yucky but she can say that she has played in the muddy dirt.
So hopefully in about 3 weeks will have some very beautiful Texas Bluebonnets!

Tales from the Crypt

So, I know a few of you are wondering...hmm...where is Shellie and what is she doing? I know, you were just sitting around waiting for me to update my blog. Crying every night and asking 'Why? Why hasn't she written anything?' Thinking that I had fallen off the face of the earth, but cry no longer because I am back...I think.

I have been super busy lately with getting my business back on track that by the end of the day I am just too tired or burnt out to update the blogaroo. So I am making a pact with myself that I will update at least once a week. I have A LOT of posting to do so hopefully I won't let my dear friends down!
