Birthday Girl

Yes, I had yet another birthday. I turned 32 on October 3rd. :) We had a lovely, quiet day together. We watched general conference, made a yummy cake, and Skot bought me tickets to the opera to see Faust.
No I am not eating batter with raw eggs in it.

It's my birthday, I can eat the middle if I want. ;)

Apple Pickin' 2009

Let me give a quick prelude to the apple picking... I have a great husband. I love spending time with him and I just can't get enough of him. Making fun memories, like apple picking, just adds to my appreciation for him. I really like this guy. :)

We went to a cute family-owned farm in Woodstock (Illinois) called "More Than Delicious" orchard that had numerous kinds of apples. I think we left there with 10 different kinds of apples. We brought home Cox's Orange Pippin, Jonathan, Jonalicious, Senshu, Snow, Tolman Sweet, Gala, Lustre Elstar, Sweet Sixteen, and McIntosh.

A lovely sample and rather large apple, actually.
Prolific fruit- bearing trees.
A little cheese with our apples.

I am a bit behind on my posting. We have had a lot of stuff happening lately and I have not been reporting! To back-track a bit (to Sept 11th) I thought I should share pictures of Skot's most recent day of liberation... the day the oral surgeon removed his super-tight rubber bands and allowed Skot to open his mouth.
Skot checking out his Panoramic x-ray from August.
Dr. Steichen removing the super-tight elastics and replacing with stretchy ones so he could open.
We took a trip to the doughnut shop and Skot was able to eat his first piece of solid food in 6 weeks!
Happy, happy, sweet boy.
