We have been so busy getting ready for summer! As you know, I weeded all the flower beds last week (with a little help from Lee Otis on Friday...thanks Lee Otis!). Jon and his coworker Bryan (aka John) mulched all the beds on Saturday while Savy and I went shopping with Mimi. I shouldn't post this, because it'll break Mimi's heart...I took a pic of Savy right after Mimi left to show how much she misses her.
Savy was more than happy to help the guys mulch when we got home. She loves getting dirty!
Here are our (almost) finished flower beds. I still have to plant some annuals in the pots on the front patio, and there are a couple of dead evergreens we have to replace in the front.

Yesterday I started on another project...getting a stockpile of food in the freezer for after the baby is born. We certainly won't feel like cooking when we bring her home, and I don't want to have to eat takeout all the time. I started last night with a chicken spaghetti casserole and a huge batch of white chicken chili. Today I'm going to make a large batch of black bean soup and some mini meatloaves to freeze. Later this week I'm planning to make taco soup. If anyone has any good freezer recipes, please feel free to share...I need ideas.
As for names, we are still stumped. I don't know if it's pregnancy hormones or what, because I've never really cared for this name before, but I really like the name Sylvia (nickname Sylvi or Sly). Anyone have an opinion (that I haven't already heard) on that one? I'm also still taking suggestions. I also like Logan (yes, for a girl), and Charlotte is still an option.
