Dad's new hairdo!

I like Dad's new shorter hair style. He makes fun of it! I promised Emily a photo - the one on Amy's blog of Dad holding Micah is better.

The final result!!

What to do with 200 pounds? Amy and Leah are helping Grandma peel and cut up tomatoes and put them in jars. We ended up with 60 quarts, plus I made 3 quarts of spaghetti sauce and we have eaten lots of tomatoes!! Sorry Grandma is sideways - I still need practice with the blogging.

200 POUNDS of tomatoes

You read it right! I have 200 pounds of tomatoes sitting in my kitchen. Auntie Deb wanted to pick and can tomatoes this year. She picks every year, but has never canned. So Saturday Grandma Denslow, Deb, Dad and I went to Underwood farm to a "pick your own" and in half an hour we'd picked 200 pounds of beautiful tomatoes. Deb is coming back up Thursday, and on Friday we are putting them in jars until we are out of jars, then putting them in freezer bags. I gave Deb a tomato plant for her birthday the end of July and she has loved having fresh tomatoes to eat. Amy and Tammy & families are coming today and I think we are going to have Bruschetta - chopped up tomato, onion, garlic, olive oil on toasted skinny buns topped with mozzarella cheese melted over all. Will let you know how it turns out. Amy and Tammy don't like tomatoes, but I think this will be enough like pizza to fool them!!

Dad's latest quilt.

It's BIG!!!

It's going to take a lot longer to finish, but it will be BEAUTIFUL.

Dad came in 2nd

The High Priests in our ward had our own pinewood derby last month. A lot of us took it serious. I think I had the best looking car. It ran fast. Well, almost the fastest. Came in second place. We all had fun.
