The second time we went out at 1:38am
and watched it move completely into the shadow of the earth.
Our camera wasn't able to capture them, but I also got to see some Northern Lights last night. Although they were rather faint, it was neat to see:).
"He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down."

A spider web in the door frame.
A dead tree:) I thought the picture turned out kind of interesting.
Frost covered branches.

Abigail Hope; seven weeks old
"A baby girl...one of the most beautiful miracles in life,
one of the greatest joys God gives us,
and one of the reasons why there is a little extra sunshine,
laughter and happiness in your world today."

"Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward."
"Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass."~Psalm 37:4-5

I had a fun time making this stuffed crocheted dog a few weeks ago. I was really happy how simple the pattern was. I found it in the Coats and Clark pattern book Crochet & Knit Beautiful Babies, most of the stitches were single crochet, with only one special stitch to learn.

Mix sugar and cornstarch in a small bowl; add to pan with crushed berries. Add lemon juice and cook on low heat for about 10 minutes or until mixture thickens. Remove from heat.

What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream:
Tis the star-spangled banner: O, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
While on our honeymoon, Graham and I visited Washington D.C. one of the places we went to was the National Archives. It was neat to see the original Declaration of Independence (I actually didn't get a picture of it because my camera battery went dead, so I thought I'd just post this one that I took of a copy:).
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." -The Declaration of Independence
O, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand,
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause. it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust"
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
Happy Fourth of July! Most of the time, when I was still living in the States, my family and I would have a picnic and go to fireworks (or have our own show:) in the evening every Forth. Last year, my brother brought home a Traeger grill from where he worked and we had a picnic out in our yard with delicious grilled roast and corn on the cob. What great memories:).

On the front porch of my parents house in Florida:)
We don't have many pictures of that first visit, but here is one:). I couldn't have imagined that just one year later we would be married, eagerly awaiting the birth of our baby. The Lord has truly blessed us! I am so very thankful He brought Graham and I together; I could not ask for a better husband. :)
