Buttermilk Syrup

Last year for Pioneer Day (a Utah state holiday) our neighborhood had a breakfast at the "pit" in our neighborhood.  The "pit" is just a common grassy area that has a depression in the middle of it.  Anyway, at this breakfast, somebody made buttermilk syrup.  It was SO GOOD!  I don't know who made it, so I didn't get their recipe, but I finally got around to finding a recipe and making it.  It is amazing syrup...

Cloth Diaper Cover

We use cloth diapers part of the time to save money.  We mostly just use them when we are at home because disposables are much more convenient when we leave home (carrying dirty diapers in our bag didn't sound like fun).  I bought several covers, but I wanted to make a few because of the cute prints!

Babies Don't Keep

I haven't been blogging much, because I am taking time to enjoy my baby girl while she is still little and wants to be held.  She is such a sweetie!  She is growing up WAY too fast though.  She just turned 3 months old and is just over 15 pounds.  This poem by Ruth Hulburt Hamilton describes how I feel.

Newborn Photography

Where have I been?  Oh...well...I had a baby!  She was born May 7th.  You can find out more here.

I got to try my hand at newborn photography with my own newborn.  She was 4 days old in these photos.
