We have a winner...... Halloween fun, and other things....


There is a giveaway over at Once Upon A time
to celebrate her blogiversary. So check it out, Here are a few of our Family Halloween Photos,
Homer and little skelly,














Jenga fett, of Star Wars fame, along with the "mum" teenager







Lovely Hermione is our Elisie Pie, with her Nimbus 2000, and the lovely little princess as a Penguin.








DD as 1/5 of the Village People, all the ladies dressed up as Village People for work! How fun is that?



I have done little besides travel the past week, Arkansas, then Tennessee, in on Monday...out to Atlanta tomorrow...for my first longarm class! Woo Hoo. Hoping I learn more quickly than the pantographs took me. Now had to share these divine pics of the lovely grandbabies/kids ( sorry to the older ones) and family members. Those who know us...know that the oldest children live far, far away and their parents got into the act.... Dad as Homer ( of course this could have been the Professor...sometimes I think I AM married to Homer! And DD in law was a High school Girl, not all that far removed from those days it seems. DD and the wee one, gave out candy. Wee One and I passed out the goodies, sitting out on the porch, he had to have his horse costume on of course. Now, I have been doing a bit of hand applique...while traveling, but DD gave me her UFO quilt blocks.... and I pieced the camo looking quilt together for her. I wonder can I count the UFO as an unfinished thing for me, since it isn't mine , but I will be finishing that up????May have to ask our Judge, Finn, to get her take on that question? It will be quilted next week, and she also passed on to me her other UFO.... quilt, with incomplete borders. I will piece those on....and "get her done" next week. Want to return them for Thanksgiving.... can't wait to see 2/3 of the family. Then we will have another 2/3 for Christmas. I am so looking forward to that. I may have to post photos of the Professor and I putting my longarm into my car...to make the trip to Atlanta. That should be an interesting drive?? Now concerning the longarm, I loved several names...so may have to do one with middle names too! But I did draw for a winner. Jackie was the lucky winner. Congratulations Jackie, please email me your details...and I will be back next week. Y'all have a great one! How could I not...with learning new and better tricks on my machine. Good times ahead!

What fun . . . looks like everyone joined into the spirit of the day.
I love the idea of having a middle name, too. When we got Harper, I knew that was to be her name but couldn't settle on a middle name . . . so she has two *s*

Such fun costumes!

I like having a middle name. A friend of mine didn't give her child a middle name with the idea that she could choose one for herself, which she did at age 13.

Maybe, by chance, I'm a tad biased, but you've got some CUTE grandbabies! ~jen~
