I think it is finally spring going on summer here. We are busy planting tomatoes in our upside down planter and we have fava beans growing and planted a few more tomatoes in the veg. garden. The weeds are coming up like crazy , but I am working on them. Rick fixed a leak in one of the outdoor pipes, we hope. Today it is nearly 85 degress and loving it. This week I will be triming bushes. Just love this time of year.

After Christmas we drove up to Rexburg, ID because Bernadette and Shelby weren't able to come down because of the weather. We spent 1 1/2 days with the Frisby's and my cousin Kerry and Tom Anderson. The roads in Rexburg were not plowed very well and we got stuck 2 times, but 2 good samaritans stopped and helped us. As you can see from the pictures Shelby received a bike and some woodworking tools for Christmas. Shelby is 2 years old and can be quite stubborn and showing her independence. We had a good visit and just before we left Bernadette told us they are expecting another baby in August.
We arrive in SLC after a extra 2 hour drive up to Donner Pass, 15 to 25 miles an hour is that fun when it is bumper to bumper. Christmas Eve we spent with my cousin Diana and her family. We had a traditional meal from the time of Christ. Bean soup, Shish Kebabs, hummus, pita bread, melon, nuts and pomagrantes. After dinner we read the Christmas story and enjoyed visiting. AS you can see we had snow for Christmas. We stayed in all day and watched.
