Welcome To Our Life In Upstate New York


Hello everybody!! I got an email recently from a friend that was a blog like this. Each day she downloads and updates it. I thought it would be cool to do the same thing. With our family scattered throughout the US, I thought this would be a great way to share all the craziness of our lives in Upstate New York. I can't say I will be as diligent as my friend and update it daily, however I will try to update it weekly. So here goes. . .

Flowers, Flowers, and More Flowers

Ok, so anyone who knows me knows I can't grow a plant to save my life! But, I really wanted to decorate the wrap around porch with flowers this year. Jeff knows a guy who runs a greenhouse and gave us a great deal on these flowers. The porch looks great!! I just hope I don't kill them!! We will be painting the porch hopefully next weekend. Check back for pictures of all the renovations. . .

Alyssa's Graduation

I can't believe Alyssa's is graduating from High School. What a bittersweet time it is right now. Its so much fun watching her go through the graduation process and of course the college choice dilemma's. Jeff can not believe his "little girl" is graduating. She has decided to major in pre-dental as of right now. She was accepted to PLU (Pacific Lutheran University) in Seattle, however I think she has decided to go to a community college for the first year or two then transfer. This will help stretch her college fund a little longer. Graduation is Sunday, June 10th. I will post pictures and tell everyone about it as soon as I get back.

Awesome flowers. It's now time for tomatoes, cukes, and peppers.

See you in September (sounds like a song)
