Wednesdays With My Mom

I tried to upload these pics Tuesday night and again Wednesday morning, but to no avail. I kept getting an 'error' message.
So here you go...for your viewing pleasure... on Thursday.
Adorable family pic below: Mom, Dad, and the first three kiddos, D, A, and little J. So Sweet!On this day last Wednesday we just took it easy. We watched a John Wayne movie and cut out Witch body parts (sounds worse than it was)!
Hee-hee! How cute!
My mom absolutely loves being given these little jobs. Just sayin'...so you won't think I'm a slave driver.
Thanks for the help Mom!

And of course, some more silliness. Why do I love Halloween so much???? I think it's my brother, Steve's, fault. : )




These three ornament plaques are sold as a set for $15, over in the Shop today. Thanks for looking. Sold now, thanks so much! : )

Oh ML, I am so thrilled your Mom is having a good time in her new home. You are still having great Wednesday dates with her. Watching movies, and doing crafts. Oh honey that is just wonderful. I love to come and see the pics of the two of you on your special Gal Wednesday dates. So fun. I love the little ornaments and things that you make. You are so talented honey. So talented. Mom is too. Tell her hello for me. I think of her all the time, after you sharing your wonderful pics and her stories. Thanks for sharing. Country hugs and love, Sherry

What a cute family picture!

ADORABLE crafts as always!!! I'm trying to hold off and not snatch up those cute ornament plaques. I also LOVE those witches. I think it is great that your Mom is helping you cut out witch parts. I think that would be good for her mind and her dexterity.

Hope you have a WONDERFUL day!♥

Cute!! Your mom has a great set of legs...wink wink! I crack myself up.

Amy said...

Those are such cute plaques! Love that your mom can help you cut out things!

The plaque with the little clown standing on the pumpkin is precious! Joel and I watched "War Wagon" with John Wayne and Kirk Douglas the other days.
Thanks for the encouraging comment on my blog the other day! I really appreciate it!!

ML, catching up on your blog is like being let loose in the mall! You just want everything you see! Will you be offering your witch garland? I think it would be a lovely wedding shower gift for my daughter-in-law to be who is getting married in October. You are such a slave driver these days! Love John Wayne! Love Wed, no Thursdays with Mom! E

I don't think I've seen that particular John Wayne movie. What fun.

So sweet that your mom likes to help you with those little jobs. Love the result. Those little plaques are adorable.

I don't think I've heard of that movie - my neighbor George asks me to snap up all the John Wayne movies I can find at Goodwill so I will have to keep my eyes open for that one and then maybe he'll let me borrow it. ;)

"cutting out witch body parts" cracked me up!

Cute cute cute new items!

I love Halloween too, it always feels like a whimsical holiday to me and I love the fun of it.

I do believe that your Mom is a celebrity of sorts, Sweets! She has her own fan club! (And so do you!) What darling items you create- so unique and special. Someday I will be quick enough to get one! Lori
