Catch Up Post

I am so sorry it has been so long since I posted last. I had some technical difficulties that made it so I could not post. But now thanks to Daddy, I can post again. Isn't wonderful to have a dad. They can solve almost any problem a daughter can find herself in. I feel sorry for daughters who don't have a good relationship with their dads. they don't know what they are missing. But that is aside from the point. During the time I could not post I have been saving up pictures to show you.
At the beginning of August our very dear friends the Gindorfs came to visit. Hannah, Emma, Maddie and I had a wonderful time together and we made the most of our very few days together. Every time we visit each other we try to make something daring in the kitchen. First it was doughnuts (that was a disaster I am not going to write about) since the first try was a disaster we did doughnuts the next time they visited and they were delicious (although we felt very much like Homer Price) This time we decided to decorate cupcakes (if you know us you know that is quite daring) They actually turned out nicely. they even resembled the picture in the book.

The finished product. His name Old Swampy.
We didn't just make cupcakes we also stayed up till 4:30 in the morning (we do have pictures but I am not going to show them to you) some of us played Masterpiece till past midnight and we talked and posed for pictures just to make sure we would never forget our time together.

Also in the beginning of August we started school again. As our tradition we took our school pictures on the First Day of School.

With the technical difficulties resolved I will start posting regularly again. I am sorry about the delay. ( Maybe it was just more frustrating to me than anyone else :)

 Hannah is my most willing photography subject. I have a lot of great pictures of her. These are some of my favorites. In these pictures I captured Hannah doing three of her favorite pastimes; playing her violin, reading and daydreaming.

I am not sure why the date is imprinted on the first one but now you know the day I took the picture.:)

My Gigantic Zucchini

Last week my family and I went to San Diego for a week. While we were gone my garden went on a growth spurt. (I guess it likes getting watered twice a day for 45 minutes) When I came home I was surprised by these two giant zucchinis. For the picture I compared them with one of my normal sized zucchinis.

Then the land will yield its produce, so that you can eat your fill and live securely on it.
