Tyler painted this for Eliora on the occasion of her baptism, there's a lot of beautiful symbolism in the painting. The CTR over the door stand for "Choose the Right." Congratulations, Eliora.

Here Come the Brides

Here Comes the Bride (pretend organ music)...
With two more brides waiting their turn.

When you're 2 it's okay to let your sisters dress you up in costumes.

Here are the lucky brides! Complete with a bridesmaid. Watch out, Grooms!

Banana Bread

What do you do on a cold day when you have bananas that are black and perfect for baking?

You make a loaf of absolutely perfect Banana Bread!

Banana Bread
(been using this recipe since I was a girl)

1/3 c. shortening or butter
2/3 c. sugar (I use brown sugar)
2 eggs slightly beaten
1 3/4 c. flour
2 3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. mashed bananas (about 2-3 bananas)

Bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes (45 min for very small loaves). Let cool in pan 20-30 minutes before turning onto a rack. For easiest cutting, allow to cool to room temperature.

My Own Ugg Boot

Not hard to get your own. Just drop an 2x8x10' across your foot. Fortunately, it'll be off soon...

Happy New Year

That's Paige with the orange hair. That's me with the red shoes and beautiful blonde hair. I made this picture for Grandma. We're going to the park. Paige is my great friend and my great sister. She always plays with me.
