Making Suckers with my Daughter

Shelby came for Thanksgiving and asked that I make suckers for her. Here are the molds empty and ready for pouring.

I like the steam in this picture!

Shelby and I - aren't we gorgeous!
"I love you mom - thanks for everything. I ate and gave all 64 suckers away and loved it. You are the best!!" - Shelby

August 21 my Favorite Day of the Year

Tiffany and Lincoln "playing around" I think that's FEAR on Tiffany's face!!
Nate and Bentley, with Bentley assuming the "little cousin" role!

A picture of the group assembled to Welcome home Elder Jackson from Cambodia.

Wonderful things always happen to me on August 21, and this year the wonderful thing was the safe and honorable return of Elder Cameron Jackson from his mission.

Pine Wood Derby 2009

This Pine Wood Derby was the biggest one we had been to. It was Wonderful and Thank yous to all who helped run it, much appreciated! Bentley had so much fun working on this with Dad, and I would have to say he did work with Dad though the whole project and ended up doing about half of the work. I'm not sure of the total number of boys I think around 30 and Bentley got 5 place. Way to Go!! Dad and Bentley putting in weights before the race.
The weigh in.
