apparently i decided to take a (un-intentional) blogging seems like forever since i have been here...during my "blogging break" i missed Pipers 9 month birthday, earth day and the OKC Bombing Memorial....honestly it has been nice...Most of this blog is not for any of you readers....its for our own memories...a journal of sorts for our family...soooo i put alot of pressure on myself to document as much as possible....and i just needed a break from that pressure...except for the fact that i picked the worst few weeks to take a break! In the last month...piper has mastered free standing, waving, clapping, pointing, saying "dada" intentionally, and....drum roll please....TAKING HER FIRST STEPS! thats right she took her first step yesterday morning in the children's church room at church...and today she has consistently been able to take 2 small steps before falling down to go back to crawling. So needless to say this month has been HUGE!
ok so im back now and i have a list of things that need to be blogged...including a garden update and hopefully some video of pipe...hope there are still people out there!! :)
here are a few photos from this month :)

lets try this again....

i hate to say it...but our garden did HORRIBLE last year...we planted too early...too much and all we got was 4 or 5 tiny strawberries...soooooo...round two...we waited about 3 weeks later then we planted last year...only planed strawberries, green beans and carrots and did seeds this year instead of plants

and we are already seeing growth!! this was after the thunder storm a couple nights ago! :) cant wait for some crock pot green beans!!!!
