A vintage day …

Antique pie basket (with a rack inside to make room for two pies) from my Grandma Lena Moeller via my Aunt Joan.

Vintage sweater of my Grandma Idella Lorenz.

Striped silk skirt from a dear friend in Kansas.

Two apple pies to fill the basket and take to dinner at a friend’s house.

I have arrived.


I came across this picture while I was going through my archives for my next scrapbooking adventure. Thought you might enjoy it – even four months late!

We have the mermaid princess (Megan), the racecar driver prince (Daniel), Princess Bridget, and the gypsy (Katelyn).




A picture from hiking today. Not too far out of town, but mountains! We almost missed the changing aspens, only a few leaves were left hanging on.

Mother’s Day

Um, sorry it’s tiny. And alone. But here’s a picture from Mother’s Day. One of many, hopefully sometime I will overcome technology and post more.

Merry Christmas

Lizard in the spring.

Wish I was a lizard in the spring.

Wish I was a lizard in the spring.


If I’s a lizard in the spring, I’d hear my children sing.

Wish I was a lizard in the spring.

Ok, so I’m not sure if these are the exact lyrics for the Mole in the Ground song I’ve heard sung by my favorite bluegrass sister duo.*


This morning in church, I heard my children singing. It was wonderful.

Kate actually knew some of the lyrics, Megan tried to follow her and read off the screen and Daniel picked his own words (or maybe it was the ABC’s) while singing gustily. Amazing. Sweet. Wonderful. Wouldn’t trade it for the world. Or a lizard in the spring.

*Scenic Roots, check them out on YouTube singing Orphan Girl. :)
