Hello there; I am home again,,,, whewwwwwwwww what a trip….but a great time with all the family. I have so many photos and stories to share with you all, just don’t know where to start… So I thought I would show you my pretty white puffy Weeping Pea tree…. I was so happy that I was there to see it bloom in all its glory….. just don’t look at the nasty weeds just gaze your eye balls at the tree….

I even went to my daughter’s house to take a few to share with you…. she was excited about that,,, they have worked so hard to get their yard looking pretty, and they did a great job….

OH look! it is the chair I made for her last year……. wonder how that got in the photo…….. hehehehe she usually has it out front in the flower bed…. but put it there during the winter…..  Just a bit of Spring for you all from Indiana for you to enjoy….. The weather was really great….  Our Easter was just wonderful, all my kids and grandkids were there and a few other family members too…. I will be doing a post about it soon….. and I was able to make our class of 77 dinner with the girls too,,,, which was so Great!!! we were crazy, I am surprised the restaurant did not kick us out for being too loud…… lol;  there were 15 of us…. I will be doing a post on that as well,,,, and of course I took photos….. We are planning another one in July, so I will be back for that one too….. and more photos to share and stories to tell…. ahhhhhhhh the good ole’ days…..

Well I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Easter with your family and friends.. I will be making my rounds soon and will try to get too you all so I can see what you all have been up too while I was gone….

Oh and we did bring back more of our things,,,, and that is another post as well…. gosh I don’t think I will be at a loss for postings….. hehe 

As always,,, I thank you all for taking the time to stop by my humble blog,,,,, and for your sweet comments…. Until next time;  God Bless;

WELCOME HOME ALAURA,
IT IS ALWAYS SO WONDERFUL TO GO BUT TIRING GETTING HOME AND PUTTING THINGS AWAY.
THIS POST IS JUST BEAUTIFUL.
I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A TREE TO PLANT TO CELEBRATE AMY'S LIFE AND I HAVE FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS WEEPING PEA TREE...I WILL HAVE TO RESEARCH IF IT WILL GROW IN OKLAHOMA. IT LOOKS SIMILAR TO MY WISTERIA BUT OF COURSE THE BLOOMS ARE DIFFERENT. I HAVE A LOVE FOR ROCKS LIKE YOUR DAUGHTER...I JUST LOVE LOOKING FOR ROCKS.
I DON'T KNOW IF I TOLD YOU BUT I HAVE STARTED A NEW BLOG CALLED SIMPLY DEBBIE AND IT IS OF MY JOURNEY WITH AMY WATCHING OVER ME FROM HEAVEN. IT HAS BEEN 5 MONTHS.
I WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO STOP BY AND VISIT ME.
ONCE AGAIN, BEAUTIFUL SPRING POST.
HUGS
BLESSINGS
SIMPLY DEBBIE

Hi Alaura
What a great post. The flowering tree is beautiful!! oh wouldn't it be nice if it stayed like that all summer? Its gorgeous. I like the walking stones along the garden...and the other flowers are coming up so nicely. You both have a green thumb.

It sounds like you had a great time and I'll be looking forward to hearing about it and checking out your pictures.

Nice to have more things with you again. That makes it even more reason why you need to go back more often..*wink*..

have a great day
Judi

Hi Alaura! Welcome home! Trips are wonderful but isn't it great to get back home. Well, except for the unpacking and washing the dirty clothes! :)
All of the flowers are so pretty and that white blooming bush! Gorgeous!
Can't wait to hear more about your trip, sweetness.

Hi Alaura, Delighted to hear what a good visit you had. Your daughter's yard looks like it should be featured in a magazine. So pretty and colorful. Your reunion sounds fun - did you laugh so much your face ached??? That's what happens when I reunite with old friends! Look forward to all these future posts.
