Oh my gosh thank you so much for the wonderful comments regarding the wedding and the comments in general. What a pleasure to read your what you had to say and it was fun to relive the day as I chatted and shared pictures of it. I hope to respond to you all over the next week. So I just wanted to pop in and wish you a happy week. The peeps minus one are heading to Des Moines tomorrow to meet up with the Beeps and attend the quilt show there. Oh and maybe a couple of stops along with way going and coming. I will be sure to take pics to share when I get back. Remember I'm trying to be better about blogging. I still need to take pics of my fall decorating which I will do.
So here's a totally random post all over the place as far as content goes - let's get started
One of the changes I made before the wedding last spring was to have lights installed above the kitchen cabinets and I am so happy with how they look at night
It's such a warm cozy feeling in that room. It's the only light we use at night in there - certainly enough to find that snack lol.
When my kids come home for the weekend - they also bring their dogs - 2 dogs apiece makes for 5 dogs when everyone is here and that includes Cami. As soon as the cheese drawer is opened in the fridge out of nowhere they all show up - Grandma is marked as a cheese hook-up for all of them - you can't see Ms. Cami - but she's there as well. She doesn't let those big dogs push her around lol. And yes they are all house dogs
There were lots of walks when the little's were here visiting - love these two pictures of them - LittleW doesn't walk on his own yet (but lordy he's close) but can walk behind things and around things - so why not give sissy a ride
So Sissy wants to return the favor and give her bro a ride - so what if she can't see where she's going - just a minor detail - is that really important lol
I had a gathering of woolies here the other day and they had show and tell - this is the only picture that turned out decent - not sure why the others were so blurry - how cute is this sailboat quilt
Picked up some pumpkins and cornstalks at a friends place - how cute is that truck
A quick overnight trip with Mr. Farmhouse to a fun quilt shop in Spring Green WI
Oh the eye candy in this shop is always so wonderful. The owner has such a beautiful way of displaying that you have to keep walking around taking it all in. The place was hopping which is why I only got one picture - to many people around.
I'm also on a roll finishing things up - first up is this little witchy quilt from about 3 years ago - thinking about making up a few kits for it since I have a couple of patterns leftover. Will share the other ones in another post.
Oldestfarmhouseson has a drone for his business - so we tested it out this summer - so fun to see the house from above like that
Loved this view from far above. You can really see where the lake drops off just off the beach area
It's hard to believe that although I'm ready for fall - summer is officially over. We watched this weekend as docks up and down our beach were taken out of the water - ours come out tomorrow and get tucked alongside the house for the winter. But we had an awesome summer and are ready for the fall weather and beautiful color - which is really starting to pop over the last few days.
But we will have wonderful memories of this summer of a beautiful wedding, lots of company and how these two peanuts loved the water and spent as much time as they could enjoying it. Good times for sure and another summer of memories to tuck away.
So I will leave you with this picture of LittleE taking care of Ms. Cami and making sure she was comfortable for her nap. Cami for an old pup and never being around littles before has the patience of a saint when they are around. She's taken everything in stride and walks away when things get a little rough especially with LittleW as he learns about being gentle. I loved how LittleE was so gentle and nuturing with Cami in this picture. She gets the gentle concept lol.
So I think that brings us up to date enough so we can move on. Next time I promise to show pics of my fall decorating - I'm happy with how it turned out this year. I've kept Mr. Farmhouse busy as well moving some things around. I sure feel the nesting instinct coming on. Now I need to go finish packing for the quilt show road trip. I hope to have lots of pictures to share with you.
Have a Great Week
