Spring has Sprung!

Not much has happened for us lately. Abe went to the doctor last week and weighed in at 21 lbs! He has cut 2 teeth now and I think more are coming! He is starting to do really well sitting up and scoots himself in circles on the floor. He is such a happy boy and he loves the spring weather. We spend a lot of time outside walking and blowing bubbles and swinging at the park. He laughs and laughs while in the swings, it is so cute. I've started jogging with him and he really likes that too. Ken has been working hard at his new position at work. It has been a lot more work and a lot more hours, which isn't always fun. We took some pictures of the flowers that are blooming around our house and we have some lilies growing by the mailbox, but they haven't budded yet. Although, with the flowers comes the pollen. It is terrible here. You go out to your car and it has layer of yellow pollen dust, completely covering it. It is really gross and gets on everything! All said and done though, we are so happy for spring to have sprung!

Wow, 21 lbs!!!! What do you feed that kid?? It is great when they learn to sit up though. Spring is beautiful, my favorite season. Mostly because I LOVE the rain.

That looks great(although I am going to go get some allergy medicine before I leave tomorrow!) I haven't heard anything about a new position for Ken, care to elaborate?

Beautiful!! We are enjoying the cherry blossoms here. I'll have to put up some pictures on my blog. It's gorgeous. Happy spring. PS have you joined the Beetdigger '98 website yet?? 10 year reunion coming up. (Not that you'll be there...but kind of fun to see people on the website)

Where do you get the deals on groceries? We tried to find coupons and such, but no luck...

Kim,

I saw that you had signed up with the Jordan website. I think it is fun to see how everyone is doing in the ten years so I checked out your blog.

Anyways I can't believe the good deals you got. I would love some tips as to where you get these coupons and how you manage to get such good deals. I have been trying to find ways to cut my costs down and I know there are sights on line but I can't find them.

If you feel like it post to your blog and I will check back sometime.

thanks
Melissa (Putnam) Brown

Okay, so Izzy weighs 23 pounds and she is 18 months old. Abe must be a beast!! He is so super-duper cute and has amazing eyes and a great smile. Your flowers are very happy. I wish I had some happy flowers...Unfortuately I am a killer of flowers, so I'm glad you keep your happy.
