Hamentashen Cookie Making

Next weekend we start putting the Hamentashen cookies together at temple. I am really looking forward to it. Making those cookies with such a great community is one of my favorite traditions of the year. They are such good cookies too. Yum... Deanna may help us for a while this year when she comes down to Salem on Sunday. That would be fun and I think she would really enjoy it. (Hint, hint Deanna :)


Thanksgiving 2009

I left for Africa the Saturday after Thanksgiving so these never got posted. My niece, Madison took the last two photographs. We've been working on taking pictures since she was about one. Even at three and a half, my family is still surprised I let her handle my camera. But she is getting better and I'm a proud aunt. The following three are for you Megan, keeping the tradition alive! (Her other proud aunt.)

New Years Gathering

So Sarah got back from Kenya and then what, she left, AGAIN? Yes. I came home from Kenya, spent Christmas here in Oregon and then repacked my bags for the Young Adult Quaker New Years Gathering in Northern California. It was fun and gave me time to work on a writing project I had to get to done. I also loved getting to know new friends and playing games.

Christmas 2009

I'm finally getting a bunch of these pictures I've been meaning to post up here on the blog. These are from Christmas (obviously). The two little girls are my nieces, Madison and Gabreella. In the one of me and Madison, we are showing off our purple tongues- souvenirs from the grape popsicles we ate.

Wedding Showcase

This last weekend I modeled wedding gowns at the Wedding Showcase at the State Fairgrounds. It's been a good experience for me doing things like that and I of course, enjoy performing. It also gave me time in between shows to put all my photos from Africa in albums so that is nice to have done. I'm still working on filling in a few gaps and captions but the photos aer in. Yay!


"You Can't Take it With You" Production Photography

This was another fun show to photograph and it's the one currently running though if you want to see it, buy your tickets now. They are at over 80% sold. I have several friends in this cast as well, that always makes the play more fun to work on. Not to mention that they were so photogenic, especially Sophie. It has been becoming friends with people like her that has made this all worth it.
