I wish I had a picture of the children holding this valentine when I walked into the room, but of course I wasn't expecting it. :-) The little notes on the back were so sweet - I can't help but feel very loved... :-)

We love watching our own pineapples growing... you can still see the flower under the pineapple on the right. These plants give some of the sweetest pineapples, we ever had.
Yes, we buy lots of grapefruit these days!
Grapefruit season is winding down, so we're trying to can enough jelly to last until next year. We have around 20 qt now, and have a few more batches to do before we call it quits.
Here's a glimpse of our fresh produce bins... In the forefront is custard apples, then traveling from the bottom: potatoes :-); more potatoes, ginger root, and pine kindling (for starting our charcoal fires); coconuts (we use them in rice&beans nearly every day); the top bin a fruit called sour sop. Sour sop makes good milk shakes and is NOT sour like its name would imply! :-)

Lainer with Sophia... My children just loved playing with the babies.
Sewing headquarters. Setting up on the porch worked out great!
The ladies... From left to right: Hannah, Jean, Joyce, Ivy & Carol
Babysitting babies in the strollers was no chore at all! :-)
Joyce surprised the children with a puzzle of our family picture. It didn't take them long to figure out what the picture was! ;-)
The ladies brought food and decorations to make a very special evening for us.
* Thanks to Jean and Hannah for sharing your pictures! :-)*

I am still going to post these pictures from a couple months ago even though I am embarrassed to post them now...
It was so intriguing to watch how they decorated their cookies and the way they went about it. The different personalities really show up in a project like this. =)
