One Year Pictures

We took Clayton to Erbie to have his pictures made. I took them. I think they turned out pretty good. These were taken at the old Parker Hickman Farmstead. We will be going back to have more pictures made in the future. I think this will be a pretty place in the fall.

Clayton Turns One

Thanks to all who came to our party. We really appreciate seeing everyone. It has been a fast year! Here are a few pictures from today.

Clayton likes to make messes. He was a little bit ashamed of the toilet paper mess -- I think that is why he's running away in the picture. Luckily it was a short roll. I had been taking out the trash. I'd say his belly is full.

Witt Springs

We traveled to Witt Springs last week. We ended up at Falling Water. What kind of Flower is this ?? We saw this car across from the Witt Springs Graveyard.

Clayton and Katie played together today. They really enjoy each other. Clayton can climb up and down the slide like a big boy. He has stood for a little bit on his own. It won't be long.

Laura's Recipe

Here is Laura's recipe for a simple Fruit Cream Coffee Cake and a few pictures from 5/30/9.

Fruit Cream Coffee Cake (more like homemade danish)

3 ounces of cream cheese
4 T butter
2 C Biscuit Mix
1/3 C milk
1/2 cup Preserves (I used Strawberry)
1 C powdered Sugar
1-2 T milk
1/2 t vanilla

Cream butter and biscuit mix until crumbly and add milk. (I did all this by hand. No mixer needed) Turn to floured surface. Kneed 8-10 times. Roll onto wax paper. Roll into 12 x 8 inch rectangle. Turn onto cookie sheet. Spread preserves down middle. Make 2&1/2 inch cutts along long sides and fold over filling. Bake at 425 for 12-15 minutes.

Mix remaining powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. Drizzle onto top of cake when done.
