We all really enjoyed having my sister Julianna over today! When she first arrived, we spent a few hours in the kitchen baking Lemon Bars, Key Lime Bars and Raspberry Bars. (We cheated and used these mixes, but they turned out great!) Then we made a couple batches of Rocky Road Fudge using Sarah's Never Fail Fudge Recipe with walnuts, and then adding a cup of mini marshmallows just before pouring it into the pan to cool--- oohhhh, it turned out SO good!! Each batch yielded two pounds of fudge.
When we were all done baking, and waiting for everything to cool, Julianna read about a whole stack of picture books to her nieces and nephews. While she was reading I was playing around with the settings on my camera and snapped these pictures. I can't seem to figure out how to capture the natural light without making the picture too blurry. I need to find my manual... (any suggestions?) Blurry and all, I still thought they turned out precious.
Julianna will be moving away next month. We sure will miss her !
*And my boys are getting their hair cut right now!! It really needed to be done!
