This morning after Divine Liturgy, we were able to make use of two nice new gadgets my parents got as birthday / Christmas presents for me while they were here. An electric griddle, which John used to fry eggs this morning, and a "stabmixer" (I'm not sure exactly what that translates into in English - possibly an immersion blender?) which has all sorts of uses, but this morning we used it to froth milk for our coffee. Thanks mom and dad!
And here is Maria again! This time with her hair a little more evened out after another trim or two.
