…here are a few quick pics from tonight, taken on Marcus' phone:
More pictures of Halloween, and of the past few days, tomorrow when I download from my camera!
|which one is the REAL $100 bill?|
|a lot of detail goes into his work|
|This $50 bill is my favorite.|
|You can tell he's very proud of his work.|
|DD brought pot pie, salad, and New Seasons cookies!!!|
|I had originally given her the recipe years ago…here it is,|
in case you'd like to try it (well, not you Mary and Erica).
|(we use pie crust, not puff pastry)|
|Seddy gobbled it up both nights (we all did!!)|
|Sophs made me the sweetest card, and even wore my new|
FAVORITE t-shirt of hers…it has a hedgehog on it!!
|It was a Very Hot Cocoa birthday. :o) I got cocoa, a Starbux|
gift card, and an isi whipper for my hot cocoa addiction.
Also a very special piece of bronze artwork from Fr. Juan that
is currently on display in the school room (out of the reach
of sticky little fingers).
|Uncle Shane likes to grab our cameras when we're not looking.|
|Bunny did a beautiful job wrapping my present|
(a new bread machine, woo hoo!).
|the ingredients all lined up--all basic stuff I would normally|
have in my pantry/fridge except the shortbread cookies
for the cookie crust (cookies don't last long in my pantry)
|I liked this recipe b/c it wasn't fancy--it didn't require a|
water bath or anything like that.
|And here's the recipe for your enjoyment!|
|St. Francis Day blessing of animals, with friend|
Colleen and her hamster, Chloe
|washing off pumpkins/gourds for the roadside stand|
|half-off snacks and cookies at New Seasons!! Score!!|
|cheese!!! with Mrs. N.|
|"before," as in before Gemma got her tooth|
pulled (remember the injury at the campout
in August? Well, the wait-and-see approach
showed us that there was a root injury, and it
got infected, so the tooth had to go)
|she was a very good patient|
|another artist in the family|
|Sedric likes drawing trains and hex bugs.|
|checking on Lammykins and the other sheep|
|The priest who said Mass was AWESOME!!|
;o) Everyone loved his homily…all 5 bullet
points of it….
