I want to say that I really have not been into this at all this week. I'm so glad that I am doing this on a blog and that so many of you stop by to leave me love or I might have abandoned the project this week. Thank you!!!!!
So here are a bunch of pictures at once.
The elementary school had it's annual Sock Hop Friday night. The girls were so excited to go! It is a fun event and at least half the girls wear poodle skirts!! Last year we didn't know this. But Maya and her new sewing machine came to the rescue. Maya and I made these skirts together. I prepped and with a bit of guidance she stitched them together. My battery died while I was taking their pictures. I will have to get them dressed back up to take better photo some day.
Alison stays up way too late reading. She is on the 7th and last book of Harry Potter and I am really hoping when she finishes this series she will fall asleep earlier. right now she lives and breathes Harry Potter. Serena and Maya know all the characters just listening to all her talk. And she has gotten Martin to actually read them - he has only read two other fiction books since I met him, so a pretty big accomplishment on her part. She claims she can't fall asleep without reading - looks like it is working.
This is a photo of relief. I didn't have my flash securely attached to my camera and it flew off, hit the ground, and went sliding across the floor. I took this photo in a state of panic, aiming at nothing in particular, to check that it still worked. It seems to be ok, but I am so mad at myself for not tightening the dial.
My favorite breakfast in the whole world. I know it is not good for me at all, but here it is - Scallion Pancakes!! Let me explain that I don't like sweet for breakfast at all. I would take rice and beans any day over pancakes and syrup or cereal. I usually just eat leftovers. So whenever I make scallion pancakes for dinner I make more than I know we will eat. Then I refrigerate the extra dough and fry them up for breakfast. They are so light and crisp with just the right amount of salt and the lovely flavor of scallions. Oh how I love them. And they taste even lighter when the dough sits over night. Yum!
