Goodbye to the old Bay Leaf tree

Today marks a sad day in the Cavanaugh household.

Our old Bay Leaf tree is being cut down. In a circumstances of strange events it fell on our house Wednesday night during the snow storm. So we are all safe and sound, but the tree has to go. I guess it had rotted from the roots and the weight of the 6 in of snow just made it fall down.

Now I look out my window with an open space. It is like being naked in a room full of people. We will have to replant something there I guess. It smells like fresh bay leafs right now.

To mark an even stranger week. We got a letter from King County that they are planning on building a Waste Water Management Facility on or near our property. We have to attend a meeting to see what this means. They are planning on completing Phase One by 2010.

Then we had a water pipe burst in our front yard and it took Jason all day yesterday to fix. Thankful we are blessed with great friends who came to help us out.

So today is Friday and I sit here amazed and God's grace and glory.

Did I mention that Wednesday (before the snow storm and tree falling) we got a card from someone from church that said "God if Faithful & Wonderful" with $200 in grocery gift cards in it.

Oh and I ran over a bird yesterday. It flew at my tire..

Then our 11 year anniversary is tomorrow.

Hmmmmm...this has been the strangest week ever.

Wonder what next week will bring.


March is almost over...

Where has the time gone. I can hardly believe we are in the last week of March. Where is the sun? It is already time to start planting the garden, work in the yard and enjoy the outdoors.

I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter. Jesus live indeed!

We had a fabulous time and I would love to show you the pictures, but I left my camera in the Yak (Yakima) and now I am with out. This is so hard as I think I take like 10 pictures a day of the kids.

We went to Yakima for Nana's annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday and then we were home for Easter festivites at church. Jason did a lot of working over the weekend between Cavanaugh Auto and the church. He loves all the work as it is much needed and well an answer to prayer, but then he is away more and misses out on so much with us. Why is it this way? I do not know.

The kids are growing up so fast. Liam started Spring soccer last week and Reilly will be in T-Ball in April. Natalie is almost two going on 13. I am so busy with the kids and just think we are not even in the worst of it I am sure.

Well...love to all who are reading this. God bless, check back for pictures.
