Here is another reason I have not been sewing. I hope this week will be different! Life should start settling down now and I have lots of plans and ideas to get going on!

More getting ready for fall

This is what the lil guy and I made the other day. You might have seen these on some other blogs. I found the crows at the Dollar store and decided I needed to make one too.

The lil guy is staying at our home this week. He has been so much fun to have around! I had forgotten what it was like to have a constant little buddy around me all day long. It has been pure joy and I am so thankful his parents let us have him while they are on their cruise. It's going to be hard to give him up this weekend.

What I did this summer!

I haven't been blogging much. It has been a very busy and quick summer. I'll try to recap in pictures........
First off lil' sis graduated from high school! The whole family cheered that night!

Lil' man left for a 2 year Church mission in Tennessee. He loves it there even if it is hot and humid.

The summer is also filled with lots of birthdays and anniversaries in the family!

Saw a hometown circus!

Went to Girl's Camp and survived and also took a short trip to Denver to see our oldest and his darling wife. I was even able to house hunt with them! Too fun!

All summer long we searched high and low for a cabin to buy at Bear Lake. We made one offer on a cabin in July but the home inspection did not come back positive so we kept looking. Finally closed on our new getaway a few weeks ago! We are loving it! It is the perfect size for our family and we hope we can have lots of good memories there.

This is what we did last weekend!

Now Labor Day has past and summer is ending with fall coming fast! We actually had snow yesterday at the cabin. Brrrr! Time to start getting ready for the lil' sis to leave the nest and relearning what it is like to live as just 2 people again. It's a great time in our lives!
