Happy Birthday Week

It's birthday week at our house.Don't you just love the LSU Garden Gnome. I didn't even know they existed. It is a gift to  DS to his Dad. Thursday was DH's day and Saturday is our oldest son's day. Since this week was a bit wild for both of them, we celebrated last Sunday. Sorry, I forgot to take photos, but the  meal and cake were fabulous:) Today, the landscapers arrived to do the work in our front yard. A tree needed to be removed, shrubbery replaced and sod added. DH was in his element. For years, we've done all the work ourselves. His treat this year was to hire someone else to do the work. 

A finished job!

Your April birthday's sound like our May when we celebrate 3 bdays and Mother's Day too.

I love the yard! I love the fact that you were able to hire someone else to do it! I'm seeing some spring starting to come out around here - that means lots of yardwork coming up for me.

Beautiful landscaping! My day is April 23, so I am taking myself to the ballet. "Carmen" is playing at Gwinnett Fine Arts. I have actually never seen it, so I am excited. MY oldest son's b-day was Monday,so we went out to eat Thursday. By the way, while the garden gnome is kinda cute, he isn't a GEORGIA gnome. (Where can I get one?) Karmen
