We had caramel apples and they got to carve pumpkins.

After I helped a little one carve a pumpkin, I had to make one for myself. They were all cute little pumpkins. Here’s mine……

Now I’m just hanging out waiting for the little spooks to come trick or treating.

We’ve Been Boo-ed!

I went out the door to take Reese out and saw a piece of paper taped to our door so I went to investigate and found this.

As I started to walk away I saw something orange out of the corner of my eye and I then found this….

pcpics 1829

Inside of the pumpkin was a bunch of candy and another piece of paper that looked like this…. you can click on the photo to enlarge so you can read it.

pcpics 1830

Isn’t that a cute idea? Now I have to figure out who I’m going to go BOO, watch out it could be YOU!

Spread the Light

Luke 8:16
"No one lights a lamp and hides it in a jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, he puts it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light.

We do exist!

Ok first let me start off by saying I do not like pictures of myself! That’s why you don’t very often find any of me on here but I decided I should have some pictures of me and Rusty or someday someone will look back and think we didn’t really even exist! ;-)pcpics 1803

So Doug did a little mini photo shoot for us to prove our existence!

Fall is a busy time at work for my husband but he actually got this afternoon off so we went to Roca to Sweet Annie’s and then on to Lincoln.

I am thrilled beyond words, Phil at Sweet Annie’s is going to build us a four poster bed similar to this one only ours will be black. I have wanted a bed like this forever! I’m feeling kind of guilty cause it’s a want and not a need but sometimes you just have to break down and go for one of those “wants” once in awhile. Life’s too short to not treat yourself once in awhile.

One of my dreams was for our family to go to Disney World before the kids were all grown and gone from home. Could we afford it at the time? No, not really. Was there something else more practical that the money could have been spent on? Yes probably, but we decided to go anyway and I’m glad we did because now we have those special memories and if we would have waited till we could afford it, Rusty and I would be having to spend the money on our nursing home expenses and the kids would be all grown and gone their separate ways!

After our stop at Roca, we went on to Lincoln to get some groceries. It was such a pretty day! Got to get out there and enjoy those lovely fall days!

What to do next?

A long time ago I had made this little ten commandment church book but I never finished it. I still need to make the little dolls that go in it.

pcpics 1733

pcpics 1734

I found these little dolls at a craft show and thought maybe they would work in it but they are a little big, so maybe some day I will get around to making the dolls that go with this pattern.

pcpics 1730

I’m in the mood to make something, just don’t know what. I like this little pumpkin mat I made last year. Something like this would make quick and easy gifts.

pcpics 1729

I need to drag out my patterns and look through them. I also need to get some more wool!
