Christmas decorations at the Canfield's

The Christmas spirit - what a willing helper!
We girls did the tree this year since Mommy wasn't well.

The last rose of summer......

A spider's warning - and what it means to be thanked by one......

Mom's Recovery - Laughter is Good Medicine

Our mom has been recovering from a surgery she had about a week ago. ( The doctors removed a tumor the size of a cantaloupe. ) We really appreciate all the cards and meals everyone has brought in! We got a surprise visit from the Wilson Family the day we brought Mom home from the hospital...... Mrs. Wilson took a shift catering to Mommy and gave us nurses a little break while Mr. Wilson and Daddy chatted on intellectual matters.....

While the parents where fellowshipping with one another, we kids were downstairs having a blast!
If we weren't chomping on popcorn or cookies, we were laughing....... Just look at the photo of Lucas and Josh and you'll see what I mean!

The City Mouse visits the Country Mouse.....

We got to enjoy an afternoon playing on a farm with Sarah Fuller and her sister Rachel, (holding the kitten) Shonnah Kastler, and Lucas and Joshua Wilson. We spent some time crawling around in the hayloft, then went down to see the chickens in the lower barn.

See Lucas holding the chicken?? Doesn't he look so innocent and sweet?? You would never guess that he was about to throw that dumb chicken in my face. If this blog had sound, you'd be deaf from my scream!!!!!

Photography Effect

You'll never believe what I did to get the misty effect when I took this
picture of our baby grand. If you want to know, e-mail me and I'll
tell you -Elizabeth

Election Time.........

It's that time of year again! Election time has always been exciting for us......... Ever since I can remember our parents would take us along with them to the polls - they would let us go in with them, then tell us which levers to pull. (Elizabeth "voting" in place of / with our mom in the local elections.)

Sunday Sunset

I am always awed at the beautiful "paintings" God has made for us to enjoy!
Since we don't usually have such goreous sunsets in the city, I had to go outside and get some snapshots.

General Phillips and Commander Stinnett

The City Tavern

We all had a very enjoyable time eating at City Tavern. It
was like stepping back in time 230 years ago.

The Liberty Bell

"I don't want my picture taken!"

"I don't want my picture taken!"

( Just for the records, Little Miss Faith Phillips
is usually a very happy, smiling 4 yr. old........
This was such a rare shot that I had to share it!)

Washington's Crossing

I took this picture of the Deleware River, at the place where
Washington crossed more than 200 yrs. ago. It took 9 hrs.
to transport thousands of soldiers across this river because of
the ice and heavy blizzard conditions.

The Erber Family

The Erber family got up very early every morning to make
lunches for 150 people. Believe me, I don't envy their job!
Thanks Erbers!

Faith and Freedom Tour group...
