Sunday's Adventure

Yesterday, Sweet Baby A and her Mommy, along with 5 of her little friends and their Mommies, went to Disney on Ice.

Can't you just imagine all the giggles and squeals from those precious little princesses?
Mimi's so glad you got to go on a little journey since your older sisters and Mommy got to have their special trip to see Miss Taylor Swift earlier this month. 
Now Mimi has to include this precious little conversation from Friday night . . .
At the picnic around the campfire by the lake on Friday night, the bigger kids was telling "stories," some spooky since Halloween is just around the corner and others not so spooky.  Not to be outdone, you wanted to tell a story, too.  Mommy said she could tell your were very serious and nervous because you wanted to get it just right.  You so wanted to be big, too.  Here's your story . . .
"Well, my Grandma, you know, my Mimi, she loves me very much.  She always gives me hugs and kisses.  And she taught me how to walk, too, cause my Mimi loves me."
Mimi's heart just melted when Mommy told me later Friday night.  Of all the things you could have said, you picked Mimi to talk about ~ how special is that for this Mimi!!

Y.E.S., sweet Baby A, Mimi does love you very, very much and how I love to give and get hugs and kisses, too!!  Here's some for you now . . .

Three Down . . .

two to go!

sewn and delivered just in time to be worn to the CC Halloween Party on Saturday night.

The only thing missing was Adelynn's tulle pumpkin on the front of her dress ~ Mimi didn't get it finished before she had to meet your Daddy and looks like Mommy decided to use AG's flower for her dress on it instead.  Maybe this week . . . after the other 2 are finished and delivered.

Be looking in the mail this week, CJ and CE ~ little surprises will be on their way!!

Did you notice the little "boo" banner in the background?  The Mommy made this one but it's like the ones the A girls and Mimi made for their teachers last weekend.

Got to get busy now so "Happy Boo" to you, girls!!

Fall Fun . . .

. . . while we're waiting . . .

 We enjoyed Grandparents Day in the cafeteria with the A girls

then . . .

We celebrated Baby A's 3rd Birthday with a precious Vintage Butterfly Party!

Here's just a peek since Mommy hasn't posted her pictures yet.
Mimi was so excited because her "homemade" pinwheels really did spin with the wind!

then . . .

We did a little sightseeing while the C girls were in school during our babysitting week.  The leaves weren't yet turning but everything was decorated for fall.

 Enjoying the beautiful fall decorations at Mimi's favorite place ~ The Christmas Place ~ except for that flag in the background, but the color is a fall color. 

This is for you, Mommy and Mammaw!!

 This cute crow is what Granddaddy needs for his garden.

Look!!  We even found Santa!

We got to attend a football game and help last year's beautiful Homecoming Queen, Cousin Lacee, crown her successor.  Boy, did it get cold in the mountains!

Weekends equal sports for the C girls . . .

Cybil's Soccer in the Morning

Campbell's Softball in the Afternoon and all day Sunday

We did it, girls!  Mimi and Granddaddy got you everywhere you needed to be and even got homework and aced a spelling test!   Plus we got to throw in a little eating out, crafts, shopping and yard work.  With your busy schedules, the week passed way too quickly.

Then . . .
The next week it was fall break and Apple Pickin' with the A girls

 We petted some very cute little animals and a few big ones . . .

After buying fried apple pies, boiled peanuts and some golden delicious apples, we had
lunch in the quaint little town over the mountains where scarecrows lined the streets.

We even tried on a few Halloween faces.  And don't forget our acorn-picking trip in the golf cart at DCC ~ sorry Mimi forgot the camera for that one!  The beautiful green acorns you picked with Granddaddy at Mr. Wendell's now fill my candle holders.  How fun was the car show you went to with Granddaddy, even if you had to hurry home to watch those DAWGS; sorry Campbell and Mommy but I know Daddy and Cybil were pretty excited like we were on the Acre!  Mimi also forgot to take pictures of the cute little "boo" banners you made for your teachers.  Maybe Mommy will post those later.

Now, with much more Fall Fun on the horizon, Mimi is taking this week to enjoy the last flowers of the season

and do a little sewing.  Can you smell Mimi's gardenias?  Yumm, the house smells wonderful!  Mimi's holding tight to these verses this week . . . "My soul finds rest in God alone; He is my fortress, I will never be shaken."  Psalms 62:1-2

Hope everyone is having some Fall Fun of your own this week!

Love you to the moon and back, little monkeys!!!
