I am thankful for each of you..

Wishing each of you a wonderful Thanksgiving
 from our family to yours..
We celebrated last weekend and it was the best time. 
The babies are big enough now
that we wanted to make it fun, make some memories..

the hubby built this Whatchamacallit and I painted it..
The thoughts were we would get all the kids together, take pictures
 and then every year take more and see how much they have changed/ grown

We never did get all the kids together
but the adults sure had fun playing with it..

even baby Harrison got in on the fun.. He is due next week
and we are all so excited..

there was some apple bobbing and yes that is
 a tiny little butt crack going on up there on the right..

some crafting and cousin time
a find the prize hidden in the whipped cream game..
which some miss understood and just kept
 licking the cream until it was gone..
( which is what I would have done )
How about that foot in the
 air action guess it makes you go a little faster..lol

a HEY ride.. No not a HAY ride
 We had no hay so we just waved and yelled HEY
 to every John Deere tractor or truck that passed us along our way.
We had a ball... kids, adults and even the dogs

Even me, momma and my little sister Cricket got in on the sillyness
I think we succeeded in making lots of fun new memories..
I hope that your time spent with family and friends
 is filled with love, happiness and laughter,
 lots and lots of laughter..
Thank you for stopping by. 
I feel so blessed to be able to share my little world
 with such wonderful friends.. Each of you..
hugs, Cherry

Copper Canyon Daisy

told us all to plant Copper canyon daisy. 

Pam described it as 
"warm sunshine on a chilly autumn day."
Which is the perfect description.
 as I turned into the drive on this very gray gloomy day
I thought Oh that is what Miss Pam meant..

 it is glowing...
My pictures do not do it justices... 
Copper Canyon Daisy (Tagetes lemmonii)  
is a must have in my fall garden from here on out..
You can read all about it here on  Miss Pam's blog.

hugs ya'll, Cherry

Hello November...

Good morning all
November is here and it has brought some
 perfect weather... Chilly and sunny.
 I am getting so excited for the holiday's
This year I want to decorate everything.
Cook all kinds of goodies and really blow it out.
I'm not sure if it is because we have a new baby boy
 due in December or because we will be celebrating
 Christmas at my niece's "new" 100 year old home in the country
 or if my heart has finally healed enough to let me feel again..
( if you are new to the blog)
 I lost my brother, father in law and my father all within 19 months.
and that my friend will knock the wind out of your sail for sure..
They say Time heals all... Maybe maybe not,
but it has definitely helped...

Today I am sharing some pieces I did for baby Harrison's nursery
his mommy is doing it in a nautical theme and it has turned out so cute.

you can't really tell it in the picture but the rope is done in a crackled finish.

and this piece is one of my
 favorite lullaby's ever by
The Dixie Chicks
 I did a little rewording and shortened it
 but you can hear it in it's entirety here..

hugs ya'll have a wonderful day, Cherry
