Daddy snapped a couple pictures of the fun.

He eventually did write the six, which I got on video, but blogger didn't want to upload the whole thing for some reason, so I trimmed it.
We're so proud of him. He technically shouldn't even be in preschool yet and he's able to do kindergarten math!

Anyway, she brought over some plants, and we pulled weeds, tilled mulch, and planted plants for 2 hours. I didn't think about it before we first started to get an actual "before" picture, but trust me when I say that it was very rough looking. Here is a picture of when we were almost through pulling the weeds.You can see the huge piles of weeds on the walk.
Hunter had fun helping, and Kylee did great too!
I didn't think about it until I had the opportunity to do it, but being that it's my house, I was able to decide exactly where I wanted each plant, and I really liked that responsibility. I may even go up to Lowe's and pick out a few of my own. I just planted what Peggy was sweet enough to give to me, but I think it would be fun to pick out what I like at the store.
Here's the finished product. (Please note the garden ornaments Ms. Peggy donated.) It will look nicer once the plants are established in the ground and the flowers really start blooming. We also planted zinnia seeds along the back, so I can't wait for those to sprout up!

Moms by Heart - This one is my favorite! There are a ton of coupon sites by people to help you match up coupons with sales. But in the past when I've tried to use them, these sites just annoyed me because I could never find my way around them. I love this site though, because it's very well organized and I can always easily find what I'm looking for. She posts weekly posts for Target, Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid with the best deals per their sales and using coupons, and tells you where to find the coupons.

So what did I do? I whipped up two more hair bows that matched her outfit...TWO of them, because I wanted to have choices...for a decision that needed to be made in a half hour.
I need bow-making therapy. Keri, you're invited too.
But look! Aren't they super cute?! Don't worry, it's only been 24 hours. I'll be adding to this collection.

I love when he blesses you in a way that only He is capable of.
If you read my More Blessings post, you know that we were just blessed with great furniture at a great price. At the end of it, I jokingly threw out there that we were still waiting on a replacement for our sad coffee table.
I get this comment on my blog. It's from a friend of a friend. Our mutual friend's name is Keri, and she lives in Washington state, which is where they know each other from. Anyway, the comment said that she happens to live near me and happens to have a coffee table to give away! How awesome is that?!
So she and her kids came over and visited with us today (she was even gracious enough to deliver!) It was very nice to visit with her and her children and I am so thankful to her, and ultimately, the Lord for His mysterious ways that He provides.Not only did we get a new coffee table, but we made new friends too! :)
