Say cheese!

I am inspired. This weekend, Chris gave me an early Christmas present, a beautiful full-color book on photography. So we dug out his film camera, and I have been playing with it ever since. Photography has always tickled the one very small creative bone that I possess, largely I think, because of my dad's constant instructions on how to take good pictures with his camera. The goal is to have a decent command of aperture and what not before going to Yucatan next summer. I can't wait!!!

Let the record reflect

The more reading I do for this Family and Society class that I'm taking, the more thankful I am for my hubby. Our relationship is so far out of the average, and he takes such better care of me than the average would predict that I can hardly stand it.

Just for the record, I love him to pieces. He's the best!

Ah the mountains....

Psalm 98

O sing to the LORD a new song,
For He has done wonderful things,
His right hand and His holy arm have gained the victory for Him.
Tthe LORD has made known His salvation;
He has revealed His righteousness in the sight of the nations.
He has remember His lovingkindness and his faithfulness to the house of Israel;
All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth;
Break forth and sing for joy and sing praises.
Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre,
With the lyre and the sound of melody.
With trumpets and the sound of the horn
Shout joyfully before the King, the LORD.
Let the sea roar and all it contains,
The world and those who dwell in it.
Let the rivers clap their hands,
Let the mountains sing together for joy before the LORD,
For He is coming to judge the earth;
He will judge the world with righeousness and the peoples with equity.

Fair Food

OK, I know it's been forever, but I promised to put up pictures of the State Fair food, and here they are. Don't worry--I kept them in the fridge so they wouldn't get moldy. :-)

I took pictures of the food places we didn't get to, but as you can see, we enjoyed what we did get immensely. :-)

Eaten but not pictured: basket of cheesy fries and one very sugary funnel cake (that one's for you, Becca!)
