I certainly hope fall temps are arriving in your area. They are here and I am totally LOVING it.  I love my coffee, but on a cool morning, it just seems to taste better, wouldn't you agree?  I hope that the temps are finally here to stay!!!!!

Well, lets get to fun. . .shall we.  The winners for these past two weeks.  Thanks to everyone who played along.  It was a blast, looking at your photos and reading your posts. I hope that you will all continue to play along.  Such fun.
The winners of a free image from the Sassy Cheryl's Stamps shop are. . ..

TOOTSIE & MARY-ANNE V.

Congrats ladies!!!!  Just drop me an email and I'll get your FREE image right to you!

So, this past Sunday was the Grant reunion and boy was it fun.  Back in the 'boonies' as we say.  What a gorgeous drive, both up and back.  We decided to come down on the parkway on the way back.  It was gorgeous!  I MISS the mountains SO much.  And of course, back in Montebello, where the reunion was held is certainly some of the most country that you will ever experience.  It's WAAAYYY back there.  No cell service either.  My neighbor was watching the fur babies while I was gone, so I told her that if there was an emergency, to not even try to contact me. .. just use your best judgement.  LOL  Luckily, nothing happened.
It was great to see some relatives that I haven't seen in a long time.  And of course, the food was AMAZING!  Ate WAY too much, but trust me, I wore my bigger jeans just for the occasion.
Here are just a few photos of the day.  Enjoy!


Dad, my sister Cindy, my mom and me.  Yes, I know. . .I look just like my momma.  LOL


Three of my beautiful nieces, Ashley, Alisha, Michaela, my sister and of course, ME!


From left to right, Uncle Billy, Uncle Roy, Great Aunt Rennie, Alisha, (Anthony & Maria) Dad, Aunt Janey and my sister.
Poor Alisha. . .both of the kids wanted to be in mommas arms.  LOL  Doesn't the expression on her face just say it all.


The two remaining Greats. Uncle Kenneth and Aunt Rennie.
Yep, I was pulling on his suspenders ALL day.  So fun to tease.  :)

Just some of the bounty that I brought home with me.....call out of my parents garden and also canned by my mom.  Stewed tomatoes, green beans, bread & butter pickle, tomatoes, peppers, lettuce and sour dough bread. YUM!!!!


So. . .what are you up to?  I can't wait to see what you're going to share with us.  And remember. . .for you newbies, it doesn't have to be anything crafty.  It can be whatever you're working on.  You'll have until 5 PM EST, October 2nd to link up your blog and photos to be entered in the drawing for the free image giveaway.  There will be two winners, one for each week and yes, you may enter twice.  

See you in two weeks.

Show Me #129

Happy first week of September.  Can you believe it?  Yesterday morning was just gorgeous.  Had the windows open and I am SO ready for fall and for the temperatures to stay cool.  Have I been saying that a lot?  Well, I just can't help myself.  :)  I want cool temps, fall colors and pumpkins all around me. Not necessarily in that order, but I'll take it however I can get it.

I hope that you all had as much fun as I did last week checking out all the fun, creative and yummy stuff that you all were doing.  Thanks for taking the time to play along.  I really do enjoy seeing what you all are doing.
So, who were the two winners for the SMT #128 fun for the last two weeks?  Well those two lucky winners are. . . . .
AJ(again) & CYNTHIA 
Congrats ladies!!!!  I swear. . . .some you may seriously want to by a lottery ticket.  With all these double wins!  And if you do play and win, I hope you will share, since I suggested it.  :)




And here is a little something that I'm working on with Maddie and yes, I have one a little different for Max too. I'll be working on finishing them up by this weekend.  Hopefully. . . .Lord willing and the creek don't rise.  :)   Maddie is picking out that favorite pumpkin for carving.  She's ahead of the game.



So. . .what are you working on ?  I can't wait to see what you're going to share with us.  And remember. . .for you newbies, it doesn't have to be anything crafty.  It can be whatever you're working on.  You'll have until 5 PM EST, September 18th to link up your blog and photos to be entered in the drawing for the free image giveaway.  There will be two winners, one for each week and yes, you may enter twice.
