Christmas is coming!

I can't believe that did not take any Thanksgiving pictures. We were all here, but my oldest son. He had to work. He is the best story teller. He can make everything so funny. He was missed. I cooked the usual turkey, ham, and pies all the trimmings.  We all enjoyed ourselves, but I had to leave the room when I started to fill a plate for momma. Its the little things that knock you silly with grief.

WP. has appointments next week. He will have to go for blood tests, then for the dreaded colon test. This is a quote his new Dr. is "alright I guess".

Got all the grand kids for the weekend of the 13th to cook and watch the movies we always watch together. Not putting up a big tree this year. All I can handle is the basics. Maybe mom and dad's small tree.

Finished the guitar scarf for T's teacher . After those hats I made for Nadia and her friend I am so done with graphs for awhile.

  Noah named the new kitten Sophie. He didn't like what we named it. Its outside, but fat as a butterball, and comes in a little to be loved so it doesn't turn as wild as a march hare. We bought it a heated outside house.  It is on a covered patio so its never in the cold of a night. Isn't she pretty? hugs to my dears

Happy Birthday O Daughter Mine

Birthday month

  I had the two Marshall's down for Marshall 's birthday my DIL had to work. He helped his dad build shelves the the little barn loft for storage. I fixed him fried chicken, mash potatoes, biscuits, homemade gravy, corn on the cob and a huge salad for his birthday dinner. He ate like a teenager.  He had a pecan pie for his birthday cake.  I fixed Marshall T. a pumpkin pie and he told me, "Mimi this pie is amazing".  I love that boy. I gave him his scarf I knitted. I knit one every year. I always think of  Samuel's mother how she made him a little coat each year and took it to him each year. We had a nice visit. I sent my DIL home her scarf she is a dental hygienist and it was a sweet tooth scarf.
Dad looks cute in Wendi's scarf ha ha

Bub's birthday pie and scarf.

T wore his sweater I had made him 2 years ago and it still fits. His favorite color then was orange and black.  I knitted him a gray Wallaby sweater about that time as well.

Well its potato cakes and eggs, bacon tonight. I had left over potatoes yesterday. My husbands favorite thing. He has

doctors appointment right before Thanksgiving. Please pray for us he is developing some health issues.  

Blessings my dears

Happy Halloween

Olaf hat.

     I hated making this hat!!!! Easy as pie, and I don't know why I dislike it so much. I was to make a total of five.  That is not going to happen.  Mimi does not want to build a snowman. Guess we will hold a lottery for this one. On to the cranky theme....I have never like Halloween. Wp. took  the kids trick or treating the few times they went.  I let them pick out a sack of their favorite candy and a toy so they were pleased. Still no complaints from my aging children.  I went a total of twice, and I never got the sack of candy or toy....was raised in the suck it up era.

      Finally finished knitting Bub's scarf no pictures ( lazy).  I am working on one for his wife now. I think I am going to just make something just for me next. That maybe a baby dress or sweater because that is my love, making baby things. I found out there are two yarn stores in the big town now.  I may try them out one of these days. I was excited to learn we got an IHop in town. It was on my bucket list to eat their pancakes.
      I have been walking my trail everyday. It was cold this morning, and I really enjoyed it.  The trees are just beautiful and scrunching leaves adds to my my joy.  Next week I plan on making the first batch of soup. I may even bake some bread.

      Well I wish you all a wonderful Fall just filled with the things you love.
