Date night

Cassie and I had a fun time tonight grabbing a jamba juice and then
heading over to the Rex for a night of bowling. Cas did really well
and she bowled two strikes in a row on the last frame! Cassie totally
rocks! We were also able to get a lot of homework done but it still
wasn't enough. Arggg! We also saw the first snow of the season stick a
little bit.

Snow = Reduced traction = No motorcycle = Withdrawls for Michael

I am really sad the snow is going to be here in Rexburg already. I
just hope that the snow doesn't stay so I can get a few more days of
ridding in. I am going to have to figure out the best way to winterize
my bike. I am not sure it is a good idea to drain re fuel tank or not
because of rust issues. I will have to do some research. Untill then I
will keep ridding till the snow doesn't let me.

Mom the master Canner

Mom has been such a canning maniac that I've used a can of apricots for an art assignment. I did an oil rendering of this photo in oil paints. Isn't it pretty how the light shines through the apricot juice? I love the blues and purples in the jar's shadows too. Mom's been busy canning apple sauce with Dee and Sam, and boy o boy is it tasty, with the yummy cinnamon. Mike has had at least 4 or 5 full bowls of it.

So go Mom! Thanks for making such yummy stuff and sharing with the rest of us! We love your jams!

Cassie, the incredible!

Cassie has really been working hard lately and has been able to create
these two beautiful pillows. It was so much fun to see how excited
cassie was when the pillows were done and when we saw how nice they
looked in our room she got even more excited. I believe it is a
wonderful thing to be able to create from fabric and thread. Cassie is
really an incredible artist no matter what she is doing. Whether it is
pillows or paintings or even dinner, Cas is amazing and I love her
very much. I love beautifying our home with her beautiful creations.
