Maple Syrup!

finishing off the boiling down of the sap we collected off of 3 trees - thought it would never reach the desired temp - 219° --only to find out my thermometer was inaccurate! grrr.
But, thankfully, the syrup turned out delicious! We ended up with a couple of gallons of pure yumminess!!

I don't have any 'performance' pictures - you'll have to take my word for it - they did an awesome job! Over 40 kids from kindergarten through 12th grade in the cast!

Luke and Anna Get a Puppy!

Luke and Anna stopped by tonight to introduce us to their little Australian Cattle Dog, Lace!

Although Mia looks pretty comfortable here, she was actually intimidated by this little girl!
Lace gave a little growl when she met Mia, but after awhile it looked like they might be friends after all.

Sweet and cuddly - she's a real chunk!

Leather and Lace!
