I am working on some crafts for the holidays as I am laid up in bed recuperating from surgery. I love to knit and crochet as I here the boys singing downstairs. It warms my heart. I am making some coin purses and eyeglass cases.

At the park enjoying a day of sunshine.
Banana Bread baking frenzy. Holy cow, I had a lot of very ripe bananas on my hands. I made 4 loaves and 36 muffins. I still had more bananas than I could use. It is delicious. Thank you trusty Bread Boys Recipe.

Happy Birthday honey! A night out with friends and drinks after. Mike and Kenneth were able to make it and I had a fabulous mango-rita.

Skoal. A toast to a new life in the sunshine state.

I can remember when Cazden was the same age Sol is now. Not anymore. Caz is a middle schooler, with a girlfriend. Time flies by.

Sol is growing up so fast. He is such a little explorer. I can't believe how fast the time has passed.
