We planted two artichoke plants 2 years ago-- yet have not had a single artichoke from these plants. I don't have the greenest of thumbs & figured I had probably killed them or something. But then... one morning I walked by & noticed a little green bud. Now one plant FINALLY has 4 artichokes & the other has one. The kids seriously LOVE artichokes & Savannah thinks it is so cool that there are now some growing in the backyard. Hopefully they taste good!

Savannah had her visit to the dentist today. She was a little nervous and shy in the beginning, but warmed up and did a great job! She didn't have any cavities & the dentist gave her props for taking good care of her teeth. Then she got to pick a toy out of their treasure chest-- her favorite part of course! She is getting so big...

I stumbled upon this a blog a while ago (www.mycharmingkids.net). It belongs to a mother of four, whose youngest (Stellan) is suffering from a serious heart condition. The blog has quite a following & has touched so many people, including me. Today Stellan is having a very risky surgery to help correct his heart condition & the mother has asked everyone to wear orange in support. Here is our show of support for Stellan & his family!
