Miss Addy had two parties this year.  One at the Splash Pad with her dad and his family...the other last night with our family.  It was low key this year.  Just us and the two boyfriends.  I slaved literally all day yesterday cooking a big Italian feast.  Stuffed shells, pork, meatballs with the good sauce.  marinated tomatoes, seven layer salad, deviled eggs and homemade bread and butter.  I made her cupcakes with the best buttercream you have ever tasted.  

She was tired, but was a little trooper.  We donned the party hats and blew the horns.  She tried hard to do it too.  She started to eat a cupcake, but hates when her hands are messy.  She loves it outside.  We take her out to see the bee's and she's fascinated.  She loves flowers and plants.  Of course she loves all of the animals.  She plays fetch with her chi-chi all of the time.  She walks everywhere.  Hates the cart now.  Little Miss independent.  Loves children.  Will surely be a beach baby this summer.  Has a tremendous amount of undying energy.  Can't seem to turn her off:)  Gives high five's, hugs and kisses.  Eskimo kisses.  Fascinated by pap pap's beard, loves her aunt zia and tia, adores my iphone, puts it to her ear to say hello, dances and dances to music on itunes.  Has watched Wee Sing Sillyville at least 200 times so far (just like her mommy).  Says Mmmm when she eats something she likes.  Loves pasta like a good Italian girl.  Has the key to my heart.....that's Adalae Fae.......

Spring Cleaning

My beehives kind of took the back burner for awhile when I wasn't feeling good and worried about other things.  Abby and I went out and did complete hive check ups a few days ago.  We added 2 new supers to two of the hives.....the one that was supposed to get the super was queenless!  Ughhh!  We took a frame of brood from my hive and placed it into the queenless hive, in hopes they will rear a queen on their own.  There are still bees flying into the hive, but it looks pitiful in comparison to the others. I may have to order a new queen.  I will open it up in a few weeks and monitor the activity.

We painted the new supers so they can better distinguish their hives.  My hive is thriving!  The queen is obviously still going strong.

Easter Pictures

Ashley and I still had the baby bunnies at Easter so we were able to use them as props:)  Her Easter pictures really came out cute.  I can't wait to get my new Nikon to  make the quality of the pictures sooo much better.  Our eye is already good I think.

We took a huge amount of pictures.  These are just a select few.......

To Dye For

Today I spent the day with my friend Suzannah.  We had a blast tye dyeing a bunch of things we bought from the Darma Trading Company.  I did bamboo socks, 1 dress, 1 hippy shirt for the peep.  I also bought 2 knitting project bags to dye. (should have bought some yarn, but will do that on our next venture.  I want to host a tye dye party)   She did some bathing suits, leotards and some socks.  The colors from the kit we bought we sooo vibrant.  She says they don't run, so I'm anxious to see what they turn out like.  They need to sit for 24 hours.

We took a short ride to her friend that has the Frisians.  Her mare just had a foal and it was to stinkin' cute!  The horses were gorgeous.

We are moving our horses closer to our house in a few days.  The girls are super excited because they haven't really seen them in months due to school and schedule restraints.  They will be with an awesome retired couple who are truly "horse people".  Life is good..........................................................................
