(she was playing with my empty spice bottles and eating cucumbers which ended up on the floor)

Boy was she ever busy playing for hours with them. (The mess on the floor was due to me canning and her helping by unloading boxes with things in them)

I was trying to take a picture of her playing with the dog leashes.

Papa dressed her up in overalls to look like a "farm girl"

I was making a roast chicken with veggies and dropped the cabbage (in the bag) on the floor. I sent Emily over to pick it up and bring it back, and she did it and then dropped the bag and it fell out. Now she is pulling leaves off for me. (what a helper)

Emily had a large piece of Tin foil that I had on some pan. Ben decided to form it into a hat

Emily was having great fun pretending to be afraid of the door. She'd walk over to it and I'd say, "Oh no, somebody's coming" and she'd come running back to stand by Ben and then look at the door.

For a few nights last week, Emily and I went and joined Ben in Large Animal ICU. We usually stayed till 3-4AM and watched him do his rounds every hour. Here he is walking a 2200 lb percheron named Krystal

She's been walking for about 2 weeks now.

One of her favorite places to play is under the table

playing with a very patient TIa

Little smartipants figured out how to climb onto the chair, turned around, crossed her legs and propped her arm on the cat in a very adorable way.

Some of the harvest from my little 8x8 garden. I made 8 pints of corn relish and have a double batch of salsa simmering on the stove right now. Boy does that smell bring back wonderful memories!!

Her mulched tomatoes

My favorite picture of my Mom's flower beds that border the garden. She doesn't think she has a green thumb for flowers, but I think this looks right out of a flower magazine. I love the hops/vine covered trellis on the right!

I just had to send some pictures of my Mom's garden that she took in June/early July. I love her roof top pictures and her orderly garden that seems to produce soo much for them!
