I started a little Fall decorating. This is where the storm door will be going.
The frame is finished. It is going to be a Shadow Box fence 
In the Spring we will be putting up a deck on this side. On the inside we will be putting flowers, bushes and maybe a tree.  I hope to put in some bird feeders so I can sit and watch the birds.
This will be a variety of raised garden beds. I am still working on the garden design.


We have finally started putting up a fence in the backyard. Our yard is very small but with grandchildren under the age of five I will feel better about letting them play out back. Next Spring we hope to put up a low deck . We hired someone to do all the work and so far we are happy. It should be close to being finished today so more pics are on the way. We also will have a storm door put on the front door. We will be nice and cozy this winter. That may take a few more weeks but will be done by the end of October. It costs a lot more to hire out for all these projects but we are feeling good not to be in pain from trying to do it ourselves. Can't wait to see it all finished. HAPPY FALL!!

They go to different schools but both had first good days. Next year we hope to have both at Saint Cloud Christian for Kindergarten but that is a year away. Last Thursday they spent the day with grandpa and grandma. We over heard them saying" we are best cousins right" We are feeling so lucky to have grandchildren who have such sweet, caring spirits. There is such comfort in knowing God is in control of these little lives. He has their journey planned out we get to be pray warriors for them.

FALL is almost HERE

We have 4 grandchildren that live in Washington. Two granddaughters are once again starting school first grade and third grade . Their brother will be going to preschool. 
Here in Minnesota we have two grandchildren starting preschool. One grandson and one granddaughter. We are so excited to be able to experience this milestone. It seems like only yesterday they were babies. 
Last time on the Menu will be Summer Strawberry French Toast. I think this is a favorite for back to school breakfast.
They will be going to Kindergarten together next year at a private school . They are excited to be classmates and cousins. Grandma is planning on being the Taxi service so the mommys can work and not worry about their kids
