Prom answer, dress and planting

Here's how Lex answered Brenden for Prom. That's a whole lot of suckers! We were able to find a dress for Lex too. And they do the alterations. Hurray! And last pictures of Eric planting the corn. He's ready to stop being a farmer for himself. He wants to plant trees! So maybe we will. Sour cherry!

Prom date and ground work

Lex got asked to prom by Brenden Holst. He left a page with a bunch of foil wrapped candy. We thought it was Eric who was doing something for me cuz there was no name or anything. Actually we knew Brenden was asking but we played it up. Then out very kind neighbors the Smiths let us use their tractors to get our ground worked. Bode couldn't hardly stand that tractor just sitting there with nobody running it. He got up this morning at 5 to go work.
In other news, I still haven't heard from a dr to know when my biopsy is. I'm supposed to call in Wednesday if I don't hear from them. Also we got a new bishopric yesterday. Bart Hawkins, Dan Winder and Gregg Taylor.

Flowers? In a box??

Today Eric got flowers for me and they came in a box not in from a grocery store. He wouldn't tell me where he got them them but they aren't from Costco or Albertsons or Walmart. And I don't know why I got them either.

Wreck it Ralph!!

It was a wreck it kinda a day. Yesterday it was a shed. Today it became a kite that crashed through the window. Remember build and anchor all in the same process not just build and wait for husband to anchor. And Lex ran the tire til it was good and dead. She changed her first tire today. She's learning so much this week :-)

Just keep paintin'

Just like Dory the fish sings that song just keep swimming. We just keep painting. This is that corner cabinet in my dining room. I really like it black but I'm not done yet. I'm waiting for it to dry so I can paint it one more time. I'm going to have to do it in the morning as I'm exhausted after painting three coats on it already (white primer and 2 blacks coats) and putting up a carport tent type building again without Eric and sorting the legos ( that was probably the hardest job!) We did it by ourselves. I keep telling my girls that its good to know how to do this stuff because then they have the decision to change a doorknob or not or put up a carport or not. Because they know how. When they dont know how, they have no choice. With no knowledge you can only say no to a job. Needless to say, the driver has driven herself away from here to the movies with her girlies who have been out of town for the break and the other two bigs are on their way to roller skate with friends tomorrow. I have worked them hard this week. :-)
