I was inspired by my virtual friend Debi’s photo of a peony she got for her birthday. My peonies aren’t blooming yet, but the tulips are looking good! I love her depth of field, color and light so much that I tried my best to imitate it. Thanks for inspiring me, Debi!

spring hasn’t really simply sprouted. With consecutive days of record setting 80+ degrees last week, spring has more exploded! I took this picture because I loved the light shining on the leaves with the dark sky behind. As I post the picture, I just notice the rain drops coming down! Click on the picture to see it and the rain drops large.

Our small group from church was inspired by our office pi day competition last week. We planned our dinner and dessert tonight to revolve around pie–shepherd’s pie, spaghetti pie, chicken pot pie, as well as key lime pie and chocolate silk pie for dessert. Yumminess all around!
Big brother, Isaac, checks out little sister, Ella, in her crib.
I got to take pictures of the precious Ella today. She is 4 weeks old but spent the first three weeks in the NICU. She is a trooper and slept through the whole photo shoot. She’s so cool, she has her own blog!
I am the proud winner of Best Taste and Best in Show at our Office Pi Day Competition! I made Strawberry Chiffon Pie from America’s Test Kitchen. It’s the same recipe and looked kinda like this raspberry version I made last year. Competition was tough as there were six pies at the second annual event. Hooray for 3.14159! Hooray for Pie!
Happy Birthday, Gideon! Enjoy being 1! I am so glad we could celebrate your birthday with you.
Braden could not keep his eyes off his new little sister, Taryn. He was willing to forgo chocolate milk in order to keep holding her. Such a good big brother!
Taryn is 16 hours old! Welcome Taryn! I am honored to be one of her first visitors. She is perfect and beautiful and her family is so excited to have her join them. I can’t wait to get to know her more.
