Project Film.

Im excited about this! I got out Bills camera that he bought in the 8th grade(1979?). We used to use this camera {a pentax K1000} when we were dating and take pictures at the beach, harbor and everywhere. I'm going to see if I can find some that we took in 1984 and post them. Usually black and white film. He would try to explain aperture, ISO and shutter speed to me but I just did not get it then. Well now with my digital camera I can shoot manually so I get it:) This week I got this old baby a new battery(it powers the light meter inside the camera) and a roll of film(B&W). Im going retro! The first thing I did was take a picture and look at the back of the camera. HA! Guess what? no LCD screen to look at! Its kinda scary to tell you all about it because I have no idea how this will turn out. I'm going to manually set up each shot and the best I can and hopefully I will have something that turns out. But we will have to wait...thats a weird concept!

art 101 not exacty!

Hana and Levi are in Art. In kindergarten everything has to go on the fridge well that has not changed around here. Its been a constant stream of paintings, drawings and pottery coming home and I love it. They have an excellent Art teacher at Lynden-Mr S. he is called and the kids love him. I cant wait to see what's next for them.

Levi did not want to be photographed. Pull yer pants up!

Rice cooker quickie meal!

Hana got a rice cooker for Christmas and we have been cookin up the rice lately. I bought frozen pot stickers and then I had an idea. Instead of preparing the potstickers like the bag said I put them in with the rice and water on the top. PERFECTO! Try it... if you have a rice cooker that is.

The Future is in our hands...

I'm inspired by the excellent sermon this morning at 1st CRC. I need to say just a few words about my passion for life. God has given me compassion for the unborn. For the most innocent and silent of people.
"The gift of life is precious and holy in His sight. We praise God for the gift of life and for the courage to embrace it, protect it and honor it."
Sanctity of Human Life Litany.
I have the pleasure to know two girls who have unselfishly gave of themselves to become young moms and raise their babies. I honor them and pray God will bless them in their choice. For more information go to

Useless list

There is nothing we can do about the negatives in life. They are petty reasons to complain in a world where EVERYTHING is amazing and nobody is happy. But alas I made this list in my phone all year and now it must be published. REMEMBER I know my life is blessed beyond belief. But that does not mean I have to LIKE everything. SO here is a list of things I don't like...

Snakes, spiders and mice
half dead plants
Loud casino commercials
Open mouth gum chewers
Last cone mergers
When they screw up my coffee order
When the dog needs to go out in the middle of the night
Car problems
Stainless steel
Mean people
Murder mystery shows
Any show that has gross things on it
Agressive drivers
Noisy trucks in drive thru
When my house is dirty. That's a problem
Bathrooms without a hook for my purses
Stainless steel!
Moths, they are silent and dusty UGH! you can't see them coming. creepy

So yeah... there it is.
Here is a short list of things I love...healthy, happy family and friends, a roof over my head, heat and lights, fresh water, food in the cupboard.
Simply put...God is good.

MMMMMmmmmmmm good!

Today is my Mom's Birthday. She celebrates all week long with coffees and lunches. But she deserves it because she is special and we love her dearly. Yesterday we celebrated at Fred and Tami's with dinner for everyone. It was delicious. I made this cake (with my Bill's help) The filling is my moms raspberry jam and buttercream frosting of course. The best part was the fresh raspberries on top. Grown in Mexico and purchased at Safeway!
AND THEN white chocolate raspberry ice cream on the side. CAKE...i love thee
Sorry about my ugly blog... I want bigger pictures and I am working on it. Tonight I need hana and she is at Young Life.
