Emma's snack today was a stand by favorite - Apple Juice and Goldfish.

Emily wanted a pumpkin hat and a Clemson tiger paw hat for Bobby. I dug out my knitting and started on it. When Emma came over today, she spied the hats and popped one on her head. Emmy, I have 2 different pumpkin hats and will send both. The one Emma has on in the picture may be one for him to "grow into." The beauty of this design is that you can just roll up the brim more for a smaller child.
Emma spent the day with us today. We stamped, drew with markers, read books, put together puzzles, sang songs, and told stories. Emma ate a big lunch and enjoyed a chocolate pudding cup for dessert. Of course, she likes to "do it herself." I got these shots of her technique as she finished it down to the very last mouthful.

This little bit of nothing owns us on the weekends when she visits. Big D has learned a bunch of Wiggles routines and I know all her songs. Emma gets the biggest kick out of the video clips that Emily posts of Bobby. Her standing favorite was "Jump" and it has recently been replaced by "Laugh." Emma and I were able to video chat with Bobby and Emily this morning.

I took over 1000 photographs this weekend. I am practicing with my new camera and also completing "homework" assignments for a photography class I am taking. Emma and Molly visited on Saturday and we went to the toy store located in a nearby shopping center. I took my camera and practiced getting "motion" shots that were in focus. Emma went from one end of the store to another. We brought home a new stuffed animal, a flamingo, and a new puzzle.
I am posting some of the many shots I took.

Molly, Bjarne, and Emma came for dinner this evening. We had Molly's favorite Roasted Red Pepper Hummus with homemade pita chips as an appetizer. Big D grilled burgers and we ate them with this great Tomato Mozzarella salad. Since I had my camera handy, I took a picture.
Simple recipe - sliced tomatoes, red onion, mozzarella cheese. salt, cracked pepper, fresh basil, and drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Yum!
