For a couple of months I was trying to figure out the perfect gift for her - should I get a baby doll (no - Grandma got that), princess dress-up clothing (too young get), a Purdue cheerleading outfit (dad loves Purdue), one of those tunnels that you can crawl through (YES!). As a family, we went shopping for Biscuit's present and decide to buy a combo tunnel/ball pit. It was so nice to see the family, even my step-sisters. Biscuit received lots of book, clothes, and definitely toys. She took a short nap during the festivies, but woke in time to open presents and have cake. And Biscuit learned how to walk about a week before the party so everyone was excited to see how fast she could move.
More pictures from the party.
The weather was beautiful and it couldn't have been a better day for a birthday party for a sweet little girl. Plus, the parents lucked out because we didn't buy any noisy toys....wait - that's an idea for next year!

Fast forward to 1999 and Prince Charming and I moved into our new house with lots of trees. Lots of trees mean lots of shade. Shade equals hostas, coral bells, and astilbe all of which are my favorite plants. Prince Charming also has his favorite - ferns.
As time's gone on, I've acquired an appreciation for gardening and wanted to share pictures of my gardens with you......minus a lilac bush.
