Future Author?

Maybe one day this little girl will grow up and write her own book.  I am one Mom who would love that! She spends a lot of time writing on whatever paper she can find.
The best part of Katie's writing is her sense of humor. It is always a very serious writing with always one line that is guaranteed to make you either smile or laugh.

On this day she found my journal to write in which means I get to keep this writing.  My prayer is always that I live long enough to see what life holds for these kids as adults.  Rather she becomes an author or not I will always remember her writings and how they made me smile.

Tomatoes and Pirates

As fall is in the air it has come time to do a little canning.  This week it was the tomatoes turn.  I love the process of canning and seeing all that color in my cupboard for the winter to come.

I was given some more jars this year and they came complete with their vintage box!  

The end result all ready for soups and chili's that come with the winter months.
Also on this day I would take a couple of cute pirate girls to school!  You never know which child will want to participate in these dress up days at school but these two loved it on this day!

A new knit sweater

In the spring I had knitted a sweater for my niece.  I loved everything about making this sweater from it's fabulous pattern (pattern)

to the oh so yummy yarn sold at Quince and Co.

I had held this sweater as I needed to find my buttons and wait until she was walking so I could take her on a mini photo shoot!  She was such a doll and let me do just as I liked with my camera and her beauty.

I took her out just the two of us and we climbed and played.  This is the first complete sweater I have knit and it was so much fun.  

Of course the real fun is in the giving and being able to photograph this little one that I love so much!

I am currently reading "Yarn Harlot the secret life of a knitter". It is so funny and I am loving it.  Just a good non thinking and have fun book. The next book on my shelf is a thinker and maybe a can't sleep book so for now it is all about light and fun!

Linking up with Ginny's Yarn Along.  She always has wonderful knits and great books.

Mountain Time

One more trip to the mountains.  I found this little niece having some time with Uncle Brian.  She did walk to the river with no shoes but she found the ride she needed!

Water equals fun and this is where the kids could be found most of the weekend.  

These girls are growing up together. Sharing secrets and stories none of us will ever know.  It is always fun to see them together.

Miss Ellie is so popular and every big kid so wanted their chance to hold her!  A fish and a boy together at last!
