First I must apologize to all my dial-up friends! This is a picture intensive post. This is my B post for the Knitorious ABC Along 2008.
B is for Baby, my baby. I photographed this instead of scanning. It's the first picture I ever took on our first time out alone, taken at the Beach in Blaine, Washington.
Here is my Baby, taken tonight, 9.5 years later, on his way to do an important presentation and I am just Bragging because I am so proud of him and the Godly man he has become!
B is for Bible, the most important, influential and Holy Book I have ever read! This is one of many that belonged to my Grandma Holly and has her markings and notes.
B is for Bride; here I am with Grandma Hopkins, of whom I write so often. I am carrying my bouquet.
B is for the boutinful blessings God has given me in my family. There were five in the Bed and the photo bug said, "I'm going to get my camera!" (Hubby, D, A, J)
B is for brother who is celebrating his 5th birthday. (Daniel Albin Johnson 1967-1973)
B is for boogie boy, who is a delight and a joy!
B is for Bessie Pease Gutman, one of my favorite artists.
B is for babies who were born five weeks before their due date. (A on left, J on right, photo courtesy of my Mom. Thanks Mom! It's my favorite!)
B is for twin B, whose name begins with A!
B is for Best Friend; this is Shelley photographing in Mount Vernon, Washington. (Another photo courtesy of Mom!)
B is for Uncle Bud, Charles Alexander Larimore (1918-2006). He was my Grandma Johnson's brother.
B is for Belitz or Balitz or Baylitz, the family of my great, great Grandma Hopkins who came to the United states in 1869, first to Wisconsin and then to Michigan. She traveled on a steamship with her family from Hamburg to New York and family stories recall that she helped milk cows on the ship! Seated are her parents, Henrietta "Etta" Wolf Belitz, Carl Belitz and between them is their son Frederick. Behind on the left is their daughter Louisa and on the right is my ancestress Marie/Mary Belitz Hopkins 1859-1909. Photo circa 1880.
B is for Barbie a new acquistion to our household. A on left and J on right, caught combing Barbies hair together. Behind them is the kitchen set which was my Christmas present in 1969.
And B is for Buddy, Uncle L and Aunt K's dog, who we had fun visiting at Christmas.
B is for bubbles, which are lots of fun. Here Hubby has A on his lap, J in pink and D in background at Goat Rock Beach.
B is for bonding and spending time together. Here D watches Daddy sketch at the beach.
B is for bicycle; this is A's first, a gift from Grandma and Grandpa Johnson.
And B is for the beach where we escape the heat and smog!
B is for all the beauty God created to bless us. This is the California side of Lake Tahoe.
B is for branches as trees are one of my favorite things to photograph and see in art.
B is for bees who pollinate our flowers and plants and give us honey!
B is for blossoms and lady bugs. This is my Gemini rose, one of my favorites.
B is for Big Trees State Park, the largest grove of Sequoia redwoods alive in the world. They are an awesome sight to behold!
B is for butterfly, this one is a Swallowtail with bold coloring and bright pink flowers.
B is for bear crossing sign at Lake Tahoe.
And B is for bear; this is Yosemite proof that they really do cross the road - sometimes right where the sign says they do!
B is for bonnets at the Civil War re-enactment on the California Coast.
B is for books of which we have plenty, and our new bookcase, as well as the 18 bankers boxes covered and making a base for this bookcase and the photo boxes above. (When you live in a small place, you have to get creative with storage!)
B is for binder, for which I wrote a long post on Wellness Wednesday a couple weeks ago. This is my binder for the kitchen.
B is for banana bread, which is a family favorite from my Aunt Grace's recipe.
B is for beets in our Vita-Mix blender, waiting to go in our...
Bread! (Beet/Wheat/Spelt bread - recipe on my My Journey To Wholeness blog, link is at right)
B is for blue faced leicester wool which I like to spin and the old blue chair where I sit to knit!
And B is for blog, one of the best B's of all!!!
Blurb (I haven't tried this but it looks like fun!)
