Ryleigh's Birthday

Ryleigh loves to carry around purses. Sometimes 2 or 3 at a time.
I thought a purse cake would be appropriate for her first birthday.

Avi's Shiner

Avi and I were wrestling on the floor. I reached around while she was behind me to tickle her and caught her right under the eye. Way to go, Mom!

Garden Bounty

The Lord has blessed with wonderful weather and a good amount of rain for our garden.
We have been canning, canning, canning tomatoes.
They are almost done, but the beans are coming on strong . . .

My favorite summertime meal -- BLT's and corn on the cob!

Lots, lots, lots of tomatoes!

4 1/2 gallons in one picking . . .

Spaghetti sauce and tomato bisque

July in Illinois

We also headed over to Illinois to spend some time with the Decker side of the family.

My Grandma Decker, her 9 children, grands, and greats all got together to play a baseball game in honor of her 75th birthday. The odd years played the even years. I think the odds won. G-ma's dog, Libby, was the honorary ump. : )

July in Ohio

We traveled to Ohio for the Henschen Family Reunion at the Pond.
It was great to see (and meet) everyone, and we look forward to the next one!

Aggghhhh!!!! Has it really been June since I last posted?! Dear me. Anyone who had been following has probably lost hope and given up. So sorry. My deepest apologies!
