Cut Apron Strings

One of the best things about having married children is that they invite you over and cook for you.



This is our second daughter, CHRISSY

This is called duo tone. I selected one color for the darks and another for lights. It makes an interesting effect.







Chrissy and Zach have been married 7 weeks

THIS is what it would look like if they had been married in 1912

I am having a lot of fun exploring photo editing options :)






Prior to marriage, Chrissy lived on chips & salsa, golden grahams, bananas and bean burritos.



Then, she met ZACH........ who, can EAT.




BOTH MOTHERS gave them cookbooks for wedding gifts





Last night she invited us over for THIS:

dinner
YUMMY sloppy joes and tater tots




..........and for dessert:

I was thinking that b/w picture looked more like 1925 with Chrissy's modified flapper girl hair style ;)

I love how that table you ate dinner on has been in your house, Mike's, mine, now Chrissy's and I'm sure it will make its way to Chloe's too.

Sloppy joes, tater tots, Dad's Root beer with cake for dessert, "just to good for poor folk".
Thanks for the invite to dinner, CZ. It was so nice to just jump in the car drive 3 miles and have a tasty dinner all ready to go. YUMMMM.
I'm down with bean burritos for sure!

About Me

My photo
I married my high school sweetheart 34 years ago in the LDS Temple. I have 4 children (3 married, and a 14 year old) and 6 grandchildren. I lived my entire life in California, until 6 years ago. I now reside in San Antonio, Texas. The most important thing to me is my family; I have invested the most in them and it has paid great dividends. I love doing anything creative that beautifies my surroundings and I love nature. I minored in Art and majored in Interior Design at BYU, yet, my profession is a Tax Preparer.
