Mavis Visit

I was lucky enough to talk my sister into coming out to Texas to help us with a little bitty project. Just kidding about the little bitty part. We are flipping three houses in DFW and these homes needed some serious landscaping. Eric and I didn't know what we were doing so we decided to get our local green thumb family member to help us out. Well, maybe not so local. Anyway, we got Melodie out here to to visualize what landscaping we needed, draw up a landscape plan and help us actually get 'er done. She was such a workhorse. We all were...even the kids. We got two houses landscaped and made a plan for the third. Whew!
She was also here for my birthday which was such a treat. I can't get enough Mavis.
 Riding all over Dallas to landscape.

The Nice Lady and the Strawberries

So the other day at Aldi I had a nice little experience that helped me regain faith in people. We were walking past the strawberries on the shelf and Ollie spots them from the shopping cart and starts yelling "Strawberry!" at the top of his little lungs. I didn't want to get them because they were a little bit sad looking and a bit over priced that week. But I gave in and set them in the cart to get him to stop yelling. A few of the people around were giggling at Ollie. By the time we got to the checkout line I had thought the wiser of purchasing the strawberries and I ditched them at the last minute. Well, some sweet lady had seen Ollie's excitement over the berries and must've also seen me ditch them. She gave the cashier the money for the container of strawberries and said, "I just had to get those for a fellow strawberry lover!"
Talk about going out of your way to show love.

Libby's Easter Look

 Gramma Washington came through again this year with a sweet little Easter dress for Libby.
We had a little photoshoot...

 Ha! I like this one of her looking at her hat.
 What's not to love?

Uh, is there a bee on me?
