It's a Beautiful Day!

It's a beautiful day. Our leaves took their good old time getting pretty, but pretty they have become. And pretty they are as they fall. The kids are loving all the leaves...what kid doesn't??

Earlier this week -

 We found a rake in the barn.
Aidan went to work on making a plie.


 Cuties ♥


The leaves have been falling like crazy the last few days. Yesterday the wind blew some in piles, some right up against the kitchen door, and some blew across the road to the neighbors yard and across the field next to us. 

Corey and the kids had some fun raking and playing today. Leaves are SO much fun!




Where are the kids??


 Zoe says, Here I am, Nana!


Soon Aidan popped up, too =)















Yes, it's a beautiful day =)










 To be a kid again =)





Leaves are falling, falling...............

While all this activity was going on outside, Hubby was busy inside....

 Not sure what the appearance of circles is from....
but this is the progress of the reno project.
Hubby took off the old plaster on the outside walls
so he can insulate them.
A window will go back in the space where it was taken out
many years ago to make room
for a chimney for a wood stove.
The wood stove was taken out during the renovation to make a downstairs
 bedroom and bath  for Marcy
and for the deck.


Lord, have mercy!
It has to get worse before it can get better =)

Happy Birthday to my Mother-in-law!

This is one of my favorite pictures of her...
Christmas 2006 
(not certain of the year, but it's close)
My MIL on the right and her sister, Mildred, on the left.
Such delight is written on their faces as they watch
loved ones open Christmas presents.
Beautiful!


Blessings to you today!

Happy Birthday to your MIL!

Your leaves are so colorful and I know the children love running and jumping in them.

It is hard to live thru reno, but I know it will be nice once it is finished.

Wishing each of you a blessed Sunday.

I just now discovered this post! I LOVE all the leaf pictures. So beautiful! And that room!!! What a project! It's going to look and feel better than it ever did before. Remember when it was the bedroom for us "four little girls"??
