Saturday Night Shenanigans

What an awesome weekend!

Ian and I spent hours and hours in the yard.  We switched out all of our pinestraw for mulch, created some new beds, replanted two bushes that bit the dust, fertilized some plants, planted some new flowers (daffodils, tulips, hyacinth, creeping phlox, pansies) and about 30-40 bulbs (stargazer lillies, tiger lillies, elephant ears, gladiolus).  We planted a leyland cypress, a topiary tree, a pink camellia tree, and two forsythia plants. 


We're beat.

Saturday night was tons of fun and a really nice break from yardwork.  We went over to our friends' house and had some really good Southern food -- ribs, coleslaw, baked beans.  I made banana pudding for dessert.  And we got to love on a very sweet baby!

If that isn't the coolest diaper around, I don't know what is.  Little pirate booty.

Brand new mama Kim got her first sip of wine after about 41 weeks!

In true tradition, the boys got Irish Car Bombs readied for us.

The banana pudding was a hit!

We are very lucky to have such a fun group of friends.  Truly blessed.

I hope your weekend had as many laughs as ours did!
