At long last....

 ...I am updating with mostly pictures and some words.....
Firstly, a small while back I traveled to Iowa to surprise my cousin for her birthday... In talking with her sister etc. we were able to get by without her knowing and I must say that she was very surprised (or shall we say it like it was; she was scared! ) when I jumped out from behind a door and grabbed her... I don't blame her for being scared.... ;)  Here are some pictures...

Here we are making chocolates....the healthy kind I tell you, with cocoa butter and coconut oil, maple syrup, cocoa etc... they were divine!

One afternoon Chels, Allison and I went to Washington where we went to some thrift shops, an adorable place called "the village" and then to the square to eat our picnic supper....

Chels tried getting pictures of us talking "seriously" but we always ended up laughing....

 Later that night Alli and I hung out at the coffee shop while Chels went to a meeting.... we had more grand conversation there..(and on the way home ;)

 Superb chocolate peanut butter icecream...

And that is the end of pictures Alli and I.... now here are some pictures that were taken last night...

 Micah, Dorcas, Rhoda & I

 Dad & Mom

 Pictures with siblings are the best! ;)
And lastly... a few weeks ago Dorcas and Rhoda were painting and decided to paint themselves too!;)

Hope you all have a wonderful week!
