Catching Up

So much has happened since I wrote last.... The chicks arrived on Good Friday. Emilee was spending a couple of days with us, so I woke her as soon as I got the phone call from the post office. She bounded out of bed and hurried and got dressed. I had made a vow to myself to have one of the grandchildren with me to get the chicks this year because the last time I got them I was so sad. I was reminded of two little girls who used to go with me to the post office, arguing over who would be the one to hold that precious peeping box. There I was, going all by myself so I told myself, I would never do that again. It worked out that Emilee was here and I wish you could have seen her face. We knocked on the back door at our post office and in a few minutes you could hear the peeping getting closer and closer to the door. I thought she was going to bust, she was so excited. She giggled the whole way home. We got the chicks settled in on Friday and then on Saturday, the long awaited kittens arrived. Three beautiful babies, according to Em, the most beautiful kittens ever. Then we celebrated Easter and had a wonderful day. On Wednesday April 27th, my brother, Danny and his wife, Barbara and my sister, Linda arrived. Danny and Barbara stayed for 5 days and we had a wonderful time together (not long enough) but they needed to get back to work. Fortunately, Linda will be staying longer. We also celebrated my Mom's 89th birthday and Emilee's 7th birthday on April 30th. Again, we had a wonderful day together..... I'm trying to catch you up on all the happenings... The greenhouse is in full swing, the lilacs are in full bloom, the grass is growing like crazy, the chicks are outgrowing the brooder, the kittens eyes opened yesterday, the dogwoods are opening, the morels are thick this year.... are you caught up yet ? I hope so, because I have to go. I have a carrot cake in the oven and the timer is going off. Enjoy this wonderful spring...
