Gideon's Birthday

📷by Larissa

 If you thought we'd celebrated Gideon's birthday a week ago, you'd be right. LOL However, THAT was the family party at the family monthly gathering, THIS was his birthday party at home. His theme was SPIDERMAN! This was a great cookie. 

The games were fantastic too! Bre had taped a big spider web on the far wall. The kids were masked up with spiderman masks and then had to pin "something" on the web...maybe it was a spider or plastic bugs? 

This is a package wrapped in MANY layers of wrapping paper. The one who is holding the package when the last layer is unwrapped gets the gift. 

Of course, the people were spectacular too! 
Trudy - Look at those eyes!

Potatoes Planted

Michael brought certified WEED FREE straw! What?  Yes, he did. Last year I just used old straw I had around here. He planted the left side of this potato patch in mounds.  I used the Ruth Stott method and planted the rest of this spot. 

The orange fence is the area we are letting the chickens till for us. We shall see if they can keep it under control.  We have more potatoes to plant so I'll stick them in the other little section Michael tilled. I guess we aren't doing EVERYTHING in beds this year after all.
