Here's the salve that I made! It turned out great except the scent was very light. More essential oils next time. It does cure those cracked wintery hands.
We also made soap! It proved to be more work than we anticipated. I got the flu the morning we started so I didn't do much! But Tyler and the Groces stuck it out and made it happen.
Here we are at the awards banquet for Tyler. He had 3 pieces receive recognition! Two of them got gold and one silver. We heard that the judges were pretty strict on the ones they let in.
I made walnut-orange tartlets for New Year's. They were real yummy, the crust was so flaky and pastry dough-like.
Oh, just this guy being tough and standing with one hand.
Hard to believe, but we celebrated Izaak Criglers 1st birthday on 1/11/11! He was a bit under the weather and wouldn't eat his cake!
The rest of this month is filling up quick with many things. We leave tomorrow to see my family in Wisconsin. Soon as we get back we have a wedding to celebrate with 2 parties, babysitting for four days in a row (including overnight!) than a wedding that I am in the first weekend in February! We continue to seek the Lord in our family, marriage and relationships. We are always amazed when we reflect on the ways that we are taken care of!
