Zahavah is upset b/c I won't let her eat the flower!
A visit w/ friends...and their Bull!
A little photo session next to Donica Pond (which is where Brett and I married)...these photos turned out terrific...I'm thinking of getting a BIG one printed!
Lord...Please help me be patient today w/ my little two year old who doesn't understand his Sister's desire to play with him and his cars! Pictures were actually taken back in Feb...but not much has changed! Wow...Snapfish is giving me 30 prints for free since its been one year since I have placed an order with them! And for the record...Shutterfly has excellent customer service...well I will confirm that when they fulfill their word. :)

I don't know about you...but I enjoy the color and smell of lemons. And I like having them in my kitchen. I like a good lemonade shake up when we go to festivals as well...although the sugar is usually overbearing. As I was sitting in the Chiropractors office this morning flipping through a Country Living magazine...I fell upon this recipe...
2 C fresh lemon juice
6 C cold water
1 C of fine sugar
2 Tbsp of grape juice (for color)
rinsed marigold petals for decoration
I cut this recipe in 1/2 because I only had three lemons and that got me about 3/4 C of juice. I used regular sugar, no grape juice or marigolds in mine nonetheless this was FANTASTIC! My kids are enjoying it now as I type. I usually struggle w/ getting the "right" proportions...this made it easy...try it!!!

America the beautiful,or so you used to be.
Land of the Pilgrims' pride;I'm glad they'll never see.
Babies piled in dumpsters,Abortion on demand,
Oh, sweet land of liberty;your house is on the sand.
Our children wander aimlessly
poisoned by cocaine
choosing to indulge their lusts,
when God has said abstain
>From sea to shining sea,our Nation turns away
>From the teaching of God's love
and a need to always pray
We've kept God in ourtemples,
how callous we have grown.
When earth is but His footstool,
and Heaven is His throne.
We've voted in a government
that's rotting at the core,
Appointing Godless Judges;
who throw reason out the door,
who throw reason out the door,
Too soft to place a killer in a well deserved tomb,
But brave enough to kill a baby
before he leaves the womb.
You think that God's not angry,
that our land's a moral slum?
How much longer will He wait
before His judgment comes?
How are we to face our God,
from Whom we cannot hide?
What then is left for us to do,
but stem this evil tide?
If we who are His children,will humbly turn and pray;
Seek His holy faceand mend our evil way:
Then God will hear from Heaven;
and forgive us of our sins,
He'll heal our sickly land
and those who live within.
But, America the Beautiful,If you don't
- then you will see,
A sad but Holy Godwithdraw His hand from Thee.

My friend Megan gave me some asparagus today! (We had a nice play date this morning...which was fun, hopefully I'll post some pics soon). I had to go to www.allrecipes.com to figure out the best way to prepare it for my family! And while I was there...like always...I fell upon a few more recipes I would like to make. So now I'm in the cooking mood, but I really want to scrapbook while my kids are napping. (Since all the laundry is caught up!) I'll cook w/ the kids later! Bring out the paper, glue, stickers, ribbon and the pics...here I come! I'll share recipes with you all later! Happy Thursday!

Pics are in the wrong order...backwards...ofcourse!
The big American Pelican we caught up with...it had a severely broken wing. Poor thing.
It was probably a bit freaked out w/ all us heading towards it and surrounding it!
