A hay ride! Do you see Millie in the front (I mean Cinderella)? She isn't even two years old and she managed to hitch a ride on the wagon after this ride, too. I guess another kid lifted her up and she was happy to go alone! Kelli had to stop the tractor!
It's a princess Halloween for Kelli's girls. The pink poodle skirt girl with her back to the camera is my niece Amy's #2. They recently moved to Boulder! Amy's sweet husband Erik is the new pastor at First Pres. Boulder! Yay for more family in Colorado! Do you see Pastor Brad up on the stage? He's a cowboy!
BEAUTIFUL squash and pumpkins!
Here is my sweet niece and her pastor hubby! There's our beloved son-in-law, Bry! It was FUN!
Here's our Kelli with Amy! Cousins! Look at those smiling eyes!
Sweet Lizzy wants to say hello to you and show you her new trick! Do you like her tea party outfit? Snuggly!
Because you are my friend, you can see my ironing pile. One time a friend at school said, "You wear such bright colors. I would love to see your closet." I had to confess that I keep most of my clothes in the ironing basket. Okay, okay. I DO like to iron and I shall "stand here ironing" today (remember that story? Tillie Olsen? Here's the link). That's a little literary information for us.
Here's the little workhorse. I love the pom poms that Mags sent me. Ribbons. LOVE. Do you see the pink polka dot flags? Soon to be bunting for my classroom.More smashing to be done. It's so fun! Such play!
I had this fabric on my classroom walls last year and now I am trying to decide. Should I make a polka dot tunic or curtains for the laundry room? Please vote.
Bill bought me two gifts. The Comfort Cross. It fits snuggly in my hand and can fit in my pocket.
We aren't Catholic, but the beads above are nice for breath prayers. I love them.
It's so nice to have a week off from school. We'll celebrate Jenny's birthday and then we'll leave for Victoria, BC. I have never been there, so I am looking forward to seeing the water and the other pretty features of a lovely Canadian city. Yay!
I'm thinking about baking ginger cookies today. Wouldn't a few cookies taste sweet with a cup of tea poured from the Brown Betty?
Oh, I love the buzz of home. Don't you?
