Our dear friends are completely smitten with their new addition!
Michael and Rebekah welcomed their first baby on October 6, 2011.
Amaré Elyse was born at 7 lbs. 11 oz. and 20.5 inches long.

Gracen and I got the privilege to visit the new little family and hold Amaré when she was a mere 14 hours old!

Homemade Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

I found an idea for homemade breakfast sandwiches on this blog.  I have been looking for something hearty and healthy for Peter to eat in the morning before going to work.  The instructions were easy enough and the price was fabulous!  I used half a block of cheese ($2), a dozen eggs ($2.19) and 2 packs of English muffins ($3.79 with a buy one get one free sale).  The total was $7.98, that is $0.67 each sandwich!!

Balloon Fiesta

We had a FABULOUS time visiting the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta over the weekend!  The sights were incredible!  Over 600 balloons were launched during the mass ascension and a world record was set: 343 balloons were launched in 1 hour.
