Thanksgiving - Nov 24, 2011

Nearly 30 of our children and grandchildren came today for Thanksgiving.  Most came for turkey dinner and some came later for pie!
Thanksgiving Morning brought a beautiful sunrise!
We had sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green beans, dressing, ham and rolls.
Jonathan, Tim and Holly preparing to cut the turkey.
Meanwhile I had fun with the children.
One end of the table...
The other end of the table.  It's a good thing we have a huge table.
And we had about 10 pies!!!
The Chocolate Silk and Coconut Cream went fast!
This was a wonderful Thanksgiving!

75th Anniversary of the LDS Church Welfare System


Our Ward performed service projects to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the LDS Church Welfare System.
I was assigned to go with Bruce, Russel and Mike to trim a widow's tree and tie up her bushes for Winter.
We had fun while doing our service!
Then later we went to the Ward for a nice Pot Luck Dinner.

My Back Yard Garden... Looking Good!

I ate the first ear of sweet corn from my garden this week.
 It was very juicy and sweet!
 Next I checked my peach tree.
 They have been thinned but are still in clusters like grapes.
I ate a peach, but they need another week or two to sweeten up.
 My dinner plate Hibiscus are producing very large and beautiful flowers this Summer.
Can you still see my bear hiding in the flowers?
The Red Delicious apples are looking great, but as you see they are not red and delicious yet.

A Day at Huntington Beach California



On August 15, 2011 we went to Huntington Beach to play in the waves.
Amy buried Matthew in the sand
 But he fought his way out!
 Vincent loved splashing his feet in the waves.

 A movie of Vincent playing in the ocean.
Oh! Mama this is great!
 I ate some seaweed for lunch.  Yuck, it doesn't taste like chicken!
 Holly was very busy capturing this great event in pictures.
 Our humble beach site.
 Amy and Matthew having fun in the waves.
I took a stroll down by the Huntington Pier and watched the waves crash into the pylons.
It was an absolute beautiful day at the beach!
