Trout and Cinnamon

Well, actually, we omitted the cinnamon this time around......while I really wanted to 'try' Emma Sage's recipe, I also did not want to ruin a perfectly, delicious rainbow trout.

If you notice, little Miss has a runny nose mustache. She as ill this week with a cold and cough. Feeling better now, especially after a trout dinner.

Happy Mother's Day.......

Today was a delightful day for I slept in a little later than usual, was greeted with lots of loving wishes and hugs.

A great big cup of java and a day that was picture perfect.

I spent the day cleaning and organizing, whilst Emma Sage went grocery shopping with her Daddy. Otto got to go play at his cousins, and Greta caught up on her sleep before work.

Katrina sent lots of love through the phone and we dined with my sister and brother and their families.........truly a perfect day.

Of coarse, Mother's Day is much more difficult when your own beloved Mother is absent, as it reminds you how much she is missed and loved and that having a Mother as loving and giving as your own is one of the most precious things in the world......and it hurts when there is such a void of love.

Emma Sage's class made an adorable cookbook to share with their was such cute to read each child's contribution.

Here is Emma Sage's....I know it will make you smile as much as it did for me.

and if you are ever in the neighborhood, stop by, and we'll pop on over to the river and catch a fresh trout to cook up for you. [we actually had five beautiful rainbow trout fresh caught from the river two weeks ago]


P.S. I've never tried cinnamon with my trout...that was Emma Sage's idea! lol!!!

.....and on the back page it continued:

broccoli, salt and pepper in the the trout pan. Cook it for 2 minutes on high heat. Wait 3 hours on low heat and then it is done cooking. Finally it is time to eat it. Enjoy the food!!!!!

I hope you had a beautiful Mother's filled with quiet moments, tender thoughts, belly laughs and trout!!!!!

Eight years old.....

My baby girl is Eight years old.....oh, how can that be?

It seems like yesterday, it was a realization that your little soul was on its way into our hearts.

Just like her, Emma Sage's 8th Birthday was a Magical one. This child truly radiates joy.

She started her day going to her dancing class, which she and movement, what could be a more glorious combination.

She got a phone call from her beau, Ryan,,,,,,,and you should have heard her giggling during the call, and how sweet the two of them are with each other.

Trying on Daddy's helmet

Our little biker chick:


We then headed home for lunch and she asked to attend the Art and Music festival along the river by our off we went.

Down by the river......

and she danced, danced, danced......

Playng Lucky Ducks......and she is one Lucky Duck!!!!

It was so cute....a little girl came up to Emma Sage and said "Oh, you have the most perfect dress" She loves it because when she dances it spins......

One of her favorite things....getting her face painted.

Oh, how this child melts my heart.

She got a phone call from her other beau, Nash, and this is a picture I captured of her on the phone....too cute!!!!
One the phone with Nash.....sorry Ryan, I was driving when she was talking to you on the phone and couldn't take a picture of the big smile she had on her face for you.

Then her request for her favorite food in the world.....Japanese.

Happy Birthday Emma Sage........We love you dearly and are so blessed that you are our daughter!
