Garden Update

Hello, dearzies!
Hope you are having a wonderful afternoon. :) It's cloudy and Springish here-just beautiful! It's just us three little girls here this afternoon, all by our lonesomes. It is very quiet. Cleve dear took his five little brothers off for a spend-time today, and Pa-pa and Marmz are off to T.ville for a few errands. Dee made strawberry sorbet, and we all had a glass of it-ah!! Delicious. We picked peas together, and are having a charming time!! I love my sisters so! I miss mine that aren't here, though...Oh, speaking of Katie darling, no baby here as of yet. This little puddin'pop is taking it's sweet time. Hey, wouldn't it be hilarious if it was a girl!? LOL! Boys are super fun, too, of course. Oh-we're all making our guesses official, now! Leave one yourself-who knows, you might end up winning!! Here's mine: An 8 pound, 2 ounce girl. Watch me loose. But I'm determined I shant be swayed from my prediction, even if Kressy dear, who knows all about such things, says that the pounds and ounces will be all off. LOL. :D Please pray for Kate and the babe when you think of them-I've heard that last week or two feels very long. Ah, I can't wait to hold it!!
As the title tells, this is a garden update-Daddy Dear has planted lots of tomatoes and such since-he so wonderful!! (Y'all, I am so blessed to have him as my Dad-God is merciful and so gracious!!) Isn't his garden splendid!?
Here's The Man of our family, preparing beds...

Straight and Narrow"Ongyins" as little tots call them. ;)An Arugula flower...
And the peas! These things are so good.
And a view from the corner of the garden.
Dew drops on a broccoli leaf...
And some purple cabbage!

Well, all for now, folks! Until next time,

Alas, I have given up predicting, because I have been wrong every time. Oh, well, I can't wait to see whatever it is and cuddle it in my arms.

What a wonderful garden!

My dad and brother planted ours last week. It is small, but it's actually doing very well so far.
We are trying an elcetric fence, so hopefully we won't have a problem with the deer this year!
The rain has been such a blessing, hasn't it?

I think dear Katie is going to have a girl--though I couldn't guess what size. I hope she has a girl that will be just like her sweet mama! But then again, a boy would be fne too, if that's what the Lord wills. :)

God Bless,
Tiffany Carpenter

Oh, what a simply wonderful garden! I'm so looking forward to it getting warm enough to plant...soon!

Here is my 100% random guess...I'll go with a girl too...and hmmm...let's see...8 pounds 11 ounces. =D

I just said a quick prayer for them!

God bless!

I think it is a 8lb 5oz boy. I seem to notice that boys take their time in coming into this world. Do you blame them. It's so nice and cozy where they are why leave their mommas. Poor Katie. I do hope that she is feeling fine and we will pray for a healthy baby!!

Hey girls!
What a wonderful garden y'all have!
Can't wait till Mrs. Katie has her baby, and I think it might be a girl. Praying for the sweet mamas in the Smith/Morton families daily!

With much love,

Of course we all want dear Katie to have a sweet girl...but looking at the odds....I believe that she shall have an 8 lbs 7 oz little...or big healthy baby boy! Another one...and yes...I said boy!
I cant wait to hear that Mrs. Carol and I were the winners!!!
Much love to y'all!!
Missing y'all way up here in no mans land,
