On Saturday, my parents came over to give me my early birthday present! I do not have a green thumb, but I am thinking that I want to try more these days. My parents have always had a beautiful yard, and I havent. Basically because I dont know what I need or what I like. What I do know is that I HATED the flower bed under McKinley's window that had these horrible evergreen type plants. Im sure the builder put them in because they are cheap. But I have never liked them. There were so many weeds in that flower bed, because the evergreens were prickly, and I did not like getting pricked. :) Since we are wanting to eventually sell our house in Newcastle, we knew this was a necessity. And plus, I really want to enjoy a pretty flowerbed before we do move. All that to say, my parents came over and did the transformation on Saturday. The kids were so excited that Honey and Papa came over. McKinley spent her time in her exersaucer on the front porch, and loved EVERY minute. Which is shocking, because she normally does not love it.
My flower beds look great, and I am determined to keep them looking that way! I will do a post on the before and after soon. Thanks Mom and Dad for such a FUN birthday gift!!! We love you!
