This was one of the most exciting weekends for Thomas!!! We had some mulch delivered on a Friday afternoon. It was fun to see how excited Thomas was as he watched the big truck dump the mulch! He especially loved climbing on the mountain of mulch!
Edd only had a few weekends to help around the house before he leaves for New Orleans. So we had the minimum amount of mulch delivered so we could finish up the flower beds, even though I'd already ordered some bags of mulch from the boy scouts which were supposed to be delivered that same weekend.
Turns out we had WAY TOO MUCH MULCH. Edd spread the mulch around the flower beds, I think 3 times, trying to use up the mulch that was delivered. He still had quite a bit left when the scouts showed up with our 5 bags of mulch. Wow, we were drowning in mulch!!! Our mulch from the scouts didn't show up until around 4pm on Saturday. So it was a good thing that we went ahead and got the mulch delivered.
Edd's sister, Sara, was the lucky person who benefited from our misfortune. Edd loaded up the mulch into the truck and delivered it to her the next day when we went to her house for dinner!

Aimee affectionately named the van "STU," which is short for STUPENDO. Aimee really wanted to name the van, "STUPID," but I wouldn't let her. One day, at the beginning of the week, Thomas kept saying , STUPENDO, over and over and over again. It was pretty funny! Driving Stu has been an adventure for sure. It took us about a week to figure out that the button with the snowflake was how you made the A/C turn on! :) I also learned that even though the dash is lit up at night, it doesn't mean your lights are on! :) I'm used to "EARL," our old van, whose lights would turn on automatically when it got dark outside.
STU aka: "the blue bullet" or "Bertha, the big blue whale" is an ok van, but we'll be glad when "SALLY" is finally fixed.
Stu has been pretty good at hauling soccer stuff around to practice and games, he took Missy to her obedience class Thurs night, he has taken Thomas to and from swimming lessons, he's been to Wal-Mart several times, to the church quite a bit, and other places around the neighborhood.
What does March hold is store for STU??? Check back later for more adventures! :)
