Dec.1 … a thanksgiving weekend …

It’s hard to believe that it’s Dec. 1 already! Thanksgiving weekend flew by way too fast.

I promised a picture of the kiffles that I make for Holidays only . I did do a post on them on my other site on. Dec. 19… Kiffles 2017..(I’m not sure how to link it though..😏 ) if you care to make them.

Here are a few snap shots of this weekend.
Nap time
Snuggles learning to leave skittles and Bobo alone. She did pretty good until they came to eat out of my hand then she was ready to remove them.
Then there was Elena time, she is such a people person .🥰
She didn’t lack in attention.
My daughter,LouAnn ,gave me these little snowmen ,so we decided to put them up above the dining room window with little lights behind them.
As I visited with the girls, my hands were busy ,as there’s a little one due to arrive this week. I’m hoping to soon have it done …just a few more rows on the lace edge.
Hubby and son were busy making knives for fun. Here’s a picture of hubby’s ,I didn’t get one of Russell’s for he took his home.
Have a blessed week ,friends.❤️

Oct.1 …. just a little random post….

It has been awhile since I have done a this and that post.

First some photos from the camp site. We have lovely days with perfect temps.

There was a black duck and a hornets nest that I tried to capture but it was a little rough out there,and the duck wasn’t into having a photo taken.

Hubby made himself some grilling racks that he was very happy with… and I was even happier for he did most of the cooking. …Even made pepper poppers .😋
Then my granddaughters brighten my days with beautiful smiles or a story.
Of course , I’ve been sewing …

There a ten knotted quilts ready to go to CAM this week. It is nice to have that off my list.

Here they are waiting for the binding to be sewn,Which took me three days to do.
Now it’s time to clean up the house.🤓

July 7…. enjoyable times

We have been busy with family the last few weeks. Of course ,it’s always a real pleasure to have the children come home. All our children and grand children were here for the 4th . Some were here longer than others with Russell and his new wife here for a week.

Take a peek …

Granddaughter pretending to be a dog digging for a bone. 😀

Grandson enjoying the corn picking. Grill chicken and fresh corn on the cob was on the menu with watermelon .

Then Dad and the boys had a day of fishing.

Now I got to enjoy the littlest one of us all.

There were times when everyone was chased inside because of a thunderstorm. These clouds were beautiful!

Critters were discovered… a baby turtle dove and a soft shelled turtle that measured 10″ across the back.

And a sweet flower in the flowerbed…

Discovering that frozen finger jello makes interesting designs

Now it’s time to clean up house and go back to the normal routine. Maybe a little time will be found to see what’s going on in the sewing room.

Have a great week!

May,11….. a new arrival….

I love being a MomMom… why?

I get to hold baby with no responsibility like

Changing diapers,sleepless nights ,walking floors day and night,

Then no potty training,very little discipline on my part,

You get the picture!

I do get to spoil ,play,read and make cookies for them, that spells FUN!

So who’s the new arrival? Alexis Jayne 6 lbs.13ozs. 19 1/2 in.

Love those toes!

Happy siblings

Proud dad

And a very sweet moment with mommy

She makes number eight and the second girl.

And I need to show off this little fella who’s a sweetheart!

He charms me into most anything!😄

Have a great weekend ,friends!
