This little fellow is Thomas. He is my cousin Heather's newest addition to the family!
There have been three new additions to my family this year, and all within one week of each other. I am so very glad I didn't drink the water at the last family reunion! God knows I would have loved to have a house full of kids, and would have been thrilled with a little boy, but I am thankful for the two little girls I was blessed with!
This is the blanket I decided to make for Thomas. It is a Leisure Arts pattern from leaflet #460. It is more commonly referred to as the NEVER ENDING blanket from Hell! A friend of mine was crocheting one from the same pattern at the same time and it seemed neither one of us would ever finish.

A friend that I work with asked me if I would make an afghan for her 1 year old niece for Christmas. Well of course I would! I tried about 3 different patterns and just wasn't "feeling" any of them. Then along came Pammy Sue with her Good & Plenty afghan, so I tried it. I really like the look of it and just love how fast it works.
I love this time of year! The trees around here have finally started putting on a show. Just one week ago this tree in my side yard was still green, and look how beautiful it is today.
I love the colors of this season.
Happy Fall Ya'll!!!

Don't you just love the kind of days that are nonstop. Get up, get daughter dressed and out the door for school, get self and other daughter dressed and out the door for work. Work, work, work, get daughter from school, clean out the girls bedroom. Go to a class for work, come home, give baths, do homework, clean kitchen, and living room. Finally at 10pm I get to eat supper. Whew! Now I need a nap, but my mind is still thinking of things to do. Ugh, its going to be a long night. This is my life, I love it, and wouldn't have it any other way.

My paternal Grandfather served in the U S Navy. When asked if he remembered exactly what he was doing when he learned the war was over he would respond. "I was in the laundry of the ship when an announcement came over the speaker system that the war was over. I never saw that laundry again!" So THANK YOU Papa Bud! Even though you passed away many years ago, you will always be a Hero of mine.
My maternal Grandfather enlisted in the Army and was discharged from the Air Force. He was in Germany during the war and saw alot of action. He would tell all us Grandchildren stories of his time while in the Service. My Grandaddy had Alzheimers the past few years, and in his mind he was back in Germany during the war. Papa passed away last year in May, and I know now his war is finally over. So THANK YOU Papa Melvin, you will always be a Hero of mine.
I wish I had pictures of them uploaded to show. I will make a point to get that done, and add them when I do. I do have someone to show you.

Meet one of the newest members of my family. This little cutie is Caden Jacob, he is the son of a special cousin of mine, Nikki. While growing up Nikki spent almost every weekend with me and most of her summer holiday. She feels more like a Daughter to me than a first cousin, so this little fellow feels more like my grandchild than a cousin. Ain't he just precious!
