Double Deuce

Look at this cutie pie! 2 days old. All that dark hair. Perfect fingers. Sweet, heart-shaped face:)

3 months old. Doesn't she just melt your heart:)

10 months old. What a dainty little princess. All dressed up and loving to be in front of the camera.

Now she's Twenty Two! Look at all these shoes! Can you believe how fast time flies? She still has a mischievous look in her eyes. Happy Birthday Michal! You are loved!

The Great Pumpking Massacre

Over the summer, my husband helped our cute neighbor with her garden. This is one of the pumpkins that was grown there!

I wanted to cut it open, keep a few seeds to plant, then cook the pumpkin down and freeze it to use for baking.

After the giant pumpkin sat in the garage all fall and most of the winter, getting frozen and thawed over and over, I had finally had enough.

So last week, we cut it open and tried to salvage what we could. Jason had to use a saw to get the thing cut open! Then he had to punch it to get to the middle!

Michal took out the seeds. (about 100) We kept 5 or 6 of them to plant next year and cooked the rest with some salt. They tasted yucky because they had been frozen. The pumpkin was also ca ca poo so we had to throw that away. I was mad at myself for wasting it. Ugh! I just can't do it all!
