Donut Night

Mom and Dad came to visit this weekend because we blessed Fiona on Sunday (details to come), and afterwards we had a Petersen-style homemade Donut Night! Until I get the blessing pictures from my dad, I will blog about donuts.
Bella enjoyed an array of treats, including eating straight from a quart of Rita's Water Ice, courtesy of Sophie who works there now. (Sweet!) That's quite indulgent of the Gilers to let Bella spoil the rest of the quart by eating directly from it.
Not a great picture, but I am always amazed at Linda's kid's interest in Fiona, and Bella for that matter. As a kid I was never interested in babies or kids. At all. Even now, I don't seek them out or coo over every baby I see. I need to have some kind of emotional attachment to them, usually through friends or relatives. So because of this I can't fathom that all of Linda's kids, Sophie, Hayden and Blake, clamor to hold Fiona and fight for their turn with her. It's works out well for me.
Here is Blake, Linda's youngest, showing off a plate of glazed donuts. Mmm...
Linda, glazing.
Mmm...
Donuts.
Tasty.
It was so fun- it felt like a holiday. The festivity of making homemade donuts, having my parents there, my family all together, good friends and company, the World Series playing and happy squeals from Bella...
Good Times.

The donuts look soooo tasty! What a great tradition.

It's so fortunate that your parents are able to make that trip to visit you guys so often, that's a luxury.

Your family all together, eh? sniff. Totally jealous.

So did they get a Fry Daddy or what? I might have to start my own donut night...

I love donut nights! Missing my family's Conference donut night has thus far been the hardest part about being away from home. I'm so glad that your family is starting your own donut night tradition!

Your donuts look fabulous! Your glaze looks a little thicker than ours, but other than that, they look the same. Glad you found joy in this great tradition.
