Yahoo! I won the most wonderful gifts in the Fall into Fall Giveaway from Doris at Threads of Conversation. Inside the package was the cutest bag filled with all sorts of goodies. Check it out.
I love it all -- the fabric, the book, the green (my favorite color) bag and a VERY handy lanyard to keep tract of my scissors. Boy! Do I need THAT!!!!
It has been a rather hectic week around here, but what else is new? Between houseguests, repairmen, babysitting, dental and doctor appointments, parties and sewing the week has flown past me.
Our son, DIL and grandson were down for the weekend. It was a party weekend for all of us starting off Saturday with a birthday party for Miss P's 3rd birthday.
There were lots of goodies before dinner ......
and lots of cherished gifts being loved at the same time -- jacket, shoes, doll, umbrella and a roll of gum. How much better can life get?
The John De*ere tractor gift was the hit of the party and loved by all the little ones.
Sunday was another party to meet the new baby. Of course he was loved by all and was passed from one to another. Can anyone ever get enough baby love?
This one isn't too sure when his mom held the tiny one.
Of course what party would be complete without a brownie topped with whipped cream?
Our eldest son had a slight mishap last week while diving for lobsters. He slipped on rocks when getting back to the boat and managed to obtain a freak break in the foot. At this photo he was waiting for the swelling to go down enough for surgery to be done. The surgery itself was finally done this a.m. and two pins were placed in the severed bone to try to reattach it. He is on bedrest with the foot elevated for five days and then in a wheelchair for the next 5-6 weeks.
He is not feeling this chipper right now.
Since lobster season just opened a few weeks ago, I told him that he could now relate to the football players who get injured the first game and are out for the season. There is some consolation in the fact that he had caught his limit of lobsters before the accident.
This has also been a week for working on Halloween costumes with the grandchildren. It would be nice to have them make up their minds before the last week when the fabric stores are so short on supplies.
I did manage to get a photo of Master A in his snail outfit. It is really funny when he is crawling, but in this photo he was much more interested in climbing.
Our weather has been glorious. I love the heat and we have had such wonderfully warm weather. They are saying that it has been the warmest October on record. Too bad that the days are so much shorter as I would love to see more of this. I guess it is making up for the summer that did not exist.
I will sign off for now because I am awaiting two more grandchildren to come over to sew costumes for Friday. I hope that everyone will get lots of treats and NO tricks this week.
