This Moment


:: This Moment :: 

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

:: Halloween ::

We had a fun little Halloween at our home last night. We don't go crazy for this holdiay because it just isn't our thing. We carve a pumpkin and the girls make a few crafts. I made little candy corn gift bags for the girls. I filled them with chocolates. I am not big on candy for us but a little chocolate makes everyone happy. I really poured a lot of effort into their costumes because we will use for pretend play. The girls had a fun night and it was all treats for us.

I took the knitting outside to enjoy the much cooler temperatures here. It has been downright wonderful and perfect sweater weather. I am still working on three projects. A heirloom baby sweater, basketweave scarf, and a bookmark. I hope to finish up the sweater and bookmark this week. I have another round of knitting for the Christmas holidays to start next week. I love this season and the weather around here helps. I am still reading The Widow's Daughter and I really like it and recommend it. 

Happy Knitting!

:: Preparations ::

Our days have been filled with preparations for Halloween and James' 32nd Birthday. I love busy weeks filled with fun and projects. We took a break from learning anything new this week in our school room to review and play. Miss E and I made some luminaries for the table. I was so happy with the way they turned out. ( I will put a tutorial online later this week) We carved our pumpkin and finished up Halloween costumes. 

The clock is ticking and it is time for some birthday cake baking....

Minding My Monday

  :: Minding My Monday :: 


I am thinking and praying for all my friends and family in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast today as Hurricane Sandy approaches and hits the area. My prayers and thoughts will be with you all over the next couple days. May the Lord protect you and keep you safe in His loving arms. 



On an unrelated note, I finished my first doll size quilt this weekend and I just wanted to share my little sewing accomplishment. This is a Christmas gift for Miss E.
