Family Times..

It took me a little longer than I thought to post pictures, we are just not computer people these days. But here are a few pictures from what we've been up to..

I found a couple pictures taken right before we left Colorado.. the boys getting ready to go to their Civil Air Patrol meeting. Such handsome young gents they are.

A project that didn't make it into the summer issue, I just thought he was cute
One of the huge zuchinni we picked from our garden before we left, and this was a small one!
A few from our drive here..

I drove the utility vehicle... =D This is what we refer to as a 'sweet ride'.

Sanni's drivin'...
Evie seconded that motion...

Thinking about a run in the sprinklers..

Grand Traverse Bay. Taken while driving, just a smooch blurry.. Pretty water though :)

The cake I made for Zoe's birthday

One of our classic family pictures with us staring into the sun with the 30 mph wind behind us.

We drove up to Northport a couple weeks ago to see Lake Michigan, so beautiful! We have honestly not seen water like this in years.

The only picture of dear Mother I could find after she deleted them all. She was quite slick about deleting them too ;) I look like I'm having trouble standing up.. must be that wind.

It's usually the babies who close their eyes for pictures..

Our trip to the apple farm last weekend. We bought some fresh doughnuts and cider from the bakery there, yummy! It was so cold and windy we didn't hang out too long, it was worth it for the treats though :)

School days...


The pretty trees in front of the house..

CSSSHHHEEEESSSEE!! What a darlin' baby she is..
We are enjoying our fall here, and are currently looking out at something we're not quite used to. A very rainy day, and a very rainy week for that matter! Everyone is rather antzy, we would honestly rather be outside! Inside projects are keeping us busy as well though. The house we are staying in is proving to be very leaky, and with colder weather coming, we are busy with finding flannel to make rag quilts for beds. So between sewing and school everyday, we are well occupied!

I'm trying to get on the computer more often to blog and what not, and have some changes I hope to be able to make on here before the end of the month. Have to organize my ideas first! In the meantime, the rest of my afternoon is calling.. hope everyone is having a blessed week in their homes!

September Giveaway Winners!

Hello all!

My my.. the giveaways seem to come around so fast. And yes, I know it's the 9th, call me dopey for missing the giveaway on the 1st. There is something I don't look at very often and it's called a calender. I shall strive to hit the nail on the head for October's giveaway. =)

I hate that we haven't been blogging, but God has brought many changes over the last few months, and some of them have been very difficult. The limited time we have spent on the computer has rather been a blessing though. We've only had the tank of a desktop in the back room to check email and do simple tasks. I'm not sorry to say that Mother and I have enjoyed the break immensely!

We are just now at the point of getting comfortable in our new abode and trying to get back into the swing of 'life'. There have been struggles and hoops to go through, but God is faithful and He has given us peace and strength to press on. Our family has also had some happy changes, but that is a tale to be told later... :)

The weather is getting colder and the leaves are changing, which we are all enjoying! I will put pictures in a separate post, but the blog winners for this month need to be announced first!

So, the three winners for September are...

Vivianna, Earwen (Mirriam), Rose

Congratulations ladies! Sorry *again* for the delay in the announcement, but on a good note, it gave everyone a little more time to enter :)

Many blessings to you! Today is grocery day, so I shall have to make this the end of posting for now. Now that I have my laptop back (and my photoshop) you can be sure that pictures will be on the blog by this weekend!
