End of November

 The end of November was full of giggles and love.

The "Three Little Guys",
had an overnight with us, while the rest of the family were
at home, in bed with illnesses. 

 We treated them to lunch at Costco.
Boys this age (9, 6, 4), are not finicky about where,
 as much as what is for lunch.
So it was Hotdogs and Pizza!

To cold to go outside, so we had "table time", 

Nathan found Papa's funny glasses.


Thanksgiving in Tacoma, Washington!

Tom and I went back "home" to see our other grand kids and family.
It has been a few years since we traveled back to the Seattle area.
Sure have missed the sights!
Mt. Rainier greeted us with all  it's splender.

And the kids greeted us with splender, too!
Upon arrival, we were welcomed with a demonstration 
of  LOVE at the door!

Huxley is now 3 years old and just like his dad,
loves being in the kitchen, helping to cook up something.

Christmas presents were opened early and enjoyed for hours.

Turkey is ready!

Look who is back at the stove!

Group picture!
My older brother, Steve and his wife Jeanne were invited.
Trey was on his tip toes (haha), sweet Scarlett was still
enjoying her new nightgown and Tom was trying to make Steve laugh.

Brother Steve and Tom acted like little kids.
They really have missed each other!

Our last night together we went out for a seafood dinner.
You just can't get fresh seafood in Idaho like you can in Seattle.

Ahhhh.... home again, after a wonderful and
happy time with family.


"In the same way, let your light shine before others that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

The Great Harvest

Our new addition to the garden...
Pink Lady Apple Tree.

It came with a very small apple growing at the top.
Perfect for grandchildren to look at but not touch.

This apple tree was like a our new "child". 
We took so many pictures,
 it was hard to pick which ones to post!

After reading and learning about when and how to pick apples, it was time.

You twist, pull and it should 
come right off.

It was small but packed with so much flavor.

I'm already anticipating taking a juicy bite of an apple, next year.

Home School Time

Kimmy, our daughter, is a Home School mom of 6 kids, 
(15,13,11,9,6,4 yrs).
She also has a Home School class that she teaches once a month,
 for younger children.

Friends, neighbors and church familes, have signed up their
younger children to learn about God's creation.

What a special time for the youngsters to learn 
how to sit, create, play, listen, share and 
have fun while doing all of this. 

The moms enjoy time with the little ones plus visiting with other moms.
It's always held outside,
 in their beautiful backyard, year round!

This year Ila May has graduated out of the class but wanted to still be apart of the fun.
Kimmy recruited her, as her assistant, 
along with a special girlfriend.

We thought it would be fun to identify the assisstants, by wearing an apron.

Kimmy, "Mom can you make aprons for Ila May and her friend?"

Me, "Sure!"

So off to the store to find the perfect material.
We looked at several colors and different prints.
This is the one we came up with!

Back and front

Ila had a specific style she wanted.
No patterned needed for this adorable apron.
(Pockets will be added on soon.)

What would we do without YouTube?

Kimmy's assistnants, 
ready for students.

I added an extra long ties to make 
BIG bows.

The girls are ready to help, if needed.

Kimmy with her assistiants.

Grammy-Goo with the girls.
I found a gift bag that almost is the same print!

I ended up making a total of four aprons.

You never know if there will be more assistants in the future.
We are ready, just in case.


As each has recieved a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.

1 Peter 4:10
