Fall fun

Sheleah at pumpkin farm
Making grape jam--sure wish you could smell how heavenly it smells!
Fall is such a fun time of year, with the cooler temps, to the beautiful changing tree colors, lots of cider...making jam and so much more.  It's hard to stay motivated to stay in or home with it being so nice.  Which is how I find myself in November, wondering what the heck happened to the rest of September AND October!

I've been sewing some...
costumes for school plays....
costumes for Halloween....
purses for Christmas (shhhh..)
having PJ parties with 11 year olds..making bags...

11th Birthday Party Fun!

Row by Row commitments...oops, forgot to take pics. But then again..when you are working right up to the deadline's hard to remember to take a photo.

Then the excitement on the home front with hubby coming home from a 3 week trip from France/Russia/China and got shingles the next day. Whoa!  I heard they were painful, but seeing it firsthand is something else. My sympathies go out to all those who are suffering or have suffered from it.

And as always, things are always changing with our youngest daughter.(she's in the top photo) She is now 30 and we are trying to decide if she is starting to suffer from early onset dementia.  Unfortunately, a common affliction for adults with Down's Syndrome. :(  She wandered off from her new day care place last week, a police found her on the side of the road, repeating that she is a client.  God sent an angel in the form of a friend who happened to drive by at that time and helped the poor bewildered cop out who wasn't sure what to do with her!  We were all way more scared than she was. She said she was just walking. Obviously more secure measures need to taken with her. This is the third time in a month she has done this (from different places).  Oh the adventures she brings into our life! Thanking God for blessings this week.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Happy Thanksgiving to you from the Netherlands, and I am glad your daughter is safe home.
