Happy Saturday and GO BUCKS!!!

Wanted to share with you Royce's handiwork. He's been building an armoire for our living room. He's been working on it for over 2 months now. He works on it almost 7 days a week. When he gets his head wrapped around something, he can't let it go.
The armoire isn't finished yet, he has to varnish it several times before it comes inside. It's around 12 feet long and is in 3 pieces.
Let me know what you think. When we have it in the house I will repost some pictures of the finished product.
Thanks for looking. In another post I will add pictures of the brother / sister to do we had for the month of October. Everyone (almost) was in costume....Very fun and cute!!!

Happy Fall everyone!!

Look what I've been doing!! Making more Christmas cards!! Duh! Have a ton of them made and more to go..
We had a Croptober Fest here in Oak Park in the shack..We had Candace, Helen and Sally over for a good time. We started after supper on Friday, went until we dropped, then started again on Saturday morning and went until around five. We all got a lot accomplished! Candace worked on several projects, Sally did over 28 pages in her scrapbook, and Helen made many, many cards. I made around 32 cards and finished the wedding part of the album..We really had a lot to do and got most of it done..Everyone was asking when we could do this again..A good time was had by all!~!!
Enjoy the pictures of the cards I made.

Pictures of the retreat

Good Evening and Happy Fall!

Is everyone as happy as I am that it is finally getting a little cooler? It's been so pleasant here lately and I just love it...
We're all decorated for fall. I have the outside and inside totally done. Everything will decorated from now until the end of the year. We put a bale of straw and some corn stalks outside...They look really nice...I will post some pictures...
My Mom went home a little over a week ago and I miss her a lot. She's such good company and always willing to lend a hand. She helped us put up more peaches, we also did blueberries and 29 pints of pears. So, we have a ton put up and are grateful to be able to do it. But, she's home and I'm sure glad to be there. We took her to a lot of places to see and stock up good memories for her.
I went to the retreat last weekend and had a great time. Will post pictures of that as well. We had a great time, and Sally finished 22 pages and me 17 in my wedding album. A good time was had by all!!
Be blessed and enjoy this time of the year!
