Please pray for Season & Dave as they go through these next few days, weeks, months and years, for each day will carry it's own challenge.

Here's Season and Lily Friday morning before they removed the oxygen. Their love for her has beaten out their initial fear of taking her home, they are being so very strong. They have brought in hospice care, which is giving them some comfort. This little girl is a fighter, coming through each episode. We are thankful for every day the Lord gives us all to enjoy her.

Here is part of the group that went to Canada fishing in June. The major award had to go to Jim (right) and his uncle Rod (not pictured) for running out of gas and having to use old oars for 4 hours trying to find the cabin.
This is Ryan, Bill, Tim, Mark and Jim (Unc was living easy in Mexico when this was taken)
I tried a different type of fuzzy yarn for the ripples and it actually came out very cooshy. Is that a word? Anyway, we are so excited for Dave and Liz.

OK, now those who know me would never suspect I could actually like being on the back of a motorcycle, touring the countryside......but, I LOVED it and can't wait to do it again. This picture is the bike we took on a mountain ride in California in early October, the same bike that is in my brother's blog when he bought it and drove it across America. It was a glorious trip.
There were nine of us from our Calvary MOPS leaders that got to go to Nashville for the convention late September. It was a marveous time with lots of information. I came home on information overload and it took a few days to process the whole thing. So glad that most of us got to go.
We had fun making jack-o-lanterns with the grandkids this week. Dylan doesn't like bad guys so he wanted his to look like a monkey. We had them name the pumpkins, so Dylan's is Orange Monkey and Raegan's is Kelly Di-La-La (don't ask). We had a BLAST!

Here is a baby blanket I finished while on vacation in September - just waiting for my new granddaughter Lily to be born on November 30th. I fell in love with this pattern and with her name being Lily, it just had to involve some flowers.

Here's Season setting up her last wedding cake before baby Lily comes in December. This was the first time I was able to help a little with setting a cake up. And that help consisted of holding an umbrella in the rain so the sugar chrystals on the cake wouldn't melt! But it was an important job and the cake made it to the little church on time and in exactly the way the bride wanted it - simple and sparkly with the perfect touch on top - the topper from the bride's parent's wedding cake! Makes me wonder where in the world mine is. :)

Here's my best friend, Sue. I got to spend the evening with her to help her learn how to use her new scrapbooking toys. And btw, let's keep her in our prayers the next few weeks because of health issuess and that her doctors will be able to finally help her.
Here's the real reason for the fast day trip to KC. We needed to pick up product for a client here, and got a grand tour of how the big boys work in a large printing plant. It was an awesome experience and met some wonderful people who work there. We were busy Friday, huh!
On my first day trip to Kansas City ever, we stopped for gas in St. Joe and I couldn't believe the sign in the restaurant window next door! What a hoot! Have any of you ever seen a 'shut' sign instead of 'closed'? I can just hear them saying, "Sorry, ma'am, but we're SHUT!" Too bad, too, or we'd have stopped in and tried the BBQ.

God has certainly answered one of my prayers of "What do I do now, Lord?" I'm looking forward to a grand year of meeting and helping moms, and developing some lifelong friendships.
OK, so I wasn't involved in this conversation, but it was the first time I'd seen these three sitting together, talking business, and getting excited about their vision. I had always heard about their meetings, but never got the visual. This was just last night and I have to admit it was one of the best meetings I've been to in a very long time. It was incredible to see so many in one room want what is best for those who use their service. It was so refreshing to listen to these men and women.
I thought I knew what to expect walking into the meeting, but I got blown away by the bigger picture and obvious growth of the group! So...........I tip my hat to ALL of you! Guess I should pay a little closer attention to what my husband is doing, huh.
I crocheted this baby blanket and gave it to a couple from our church when their son, Calvert, was born. This little boy is a miracle and talk about a cutie!
Why would this be something new for me? Well, for one, I don't visit people in the hospital, but this time I did! It's good to step out of your comfort zone once in awhile. You just never know what good may come out of it.
