the baby will "bee" here soon!

picture from last week: 40 weeks prego.  gained roughly 32 pounds.  this week: still very prego. 

the nursery area is ready.  the daddy & sibs are ready.  the birthing kit is ready.  family and friends are ready.  and the mama? i'm sure most of you can imagine.  

but, all in the Lord's time...He knows when He wants this sweet pea's birthday.

we have roughly 8,000 - 10,000 new friends.  the kids decorated the bee hive and it's now full of activity!!  these bees are friendly {just don't mess with them} and should produce honey next year.  it is in a place where we can keep on eye on things but not too close to the first after all.

and here is part of one of the gardens.  it was so peaceful to go out and water this morning while drinking my morning tea.  mountain man and the kids have worked very hard in it this year while i have supervised...wink, wink.  we're eating asparagus, strawberries and lettuce at the moment fresh from the soil.  looking forward to canning lots of green beans and having fresh tomatoes for all the wonderful summer tomato concoctions.

that's it in a nutshell.  i'm sure our home will be a beehive of activity soon when sweet pea arrives!!  maybe i should take a nap while i can!

love y'all!
