Wednesdays with my Mom and What I've Been So Busy With

Oohhh, what's this I see...another maternity top??? Looks like Steve is on the way. Look at these kiddos. You can't help but smile. And notice little June's perfect pose. So cute!!!
I think this is one of my all-time favorite photos of my dad. It's SO Mr.-All-American. Looks like Mom snapped this just as he was off to Work.
Time for another Lab test to see how some new Meds are doing. : (
When we got back to my place, Mom got a big kick out of my silly Halloween doll.

Well, in case you've noticed that my Shop is running a little low, here's what I've been busy doing. These seven pumpkins (below) were a special order for a gal up in the Northwest. Thanks, Cindy...and Cami, who showed my pumpkins to Cindy. : )


Hope you're having a great day!

Good Morning, Your dad looks so dapper in his suit! I love the custom pumpkins you have been working on and how sweet to see your Mom enjoying the doll. Hope you have a good day!

Hi ML, Wilma looks great! Hope the meds are really successful! Love the pumpkins...well, you already knew that, didn't you? And that's another REAL RONALD REAGAN shot of your dad! He was a real dreamboat.

By the way, your quote about addicts was right on the money. We were extremely naive, but our hearts were in the right place. :)

Love the tie on your Dad. I love your Wednesday with the Mom posts. It so reminds me of my Mom. Your pumpkins are just lovely and I guess you were really busy sewing up a storm or I should say sewing up a pumpkin patch:)

As always, love the pictures! My husband has just started wearing an old golfing cap of my grandfathers and it just reminds me of how dapper men used to dress- ALL the time! I always compliment older gentlemen who wear hats or bowties! LOVE THEM!

Good Morning Mary Lou ~

Your pumpkins are gorgeous! I love, love them. Best wishes to your Mom...she is adorable. I love the pictures...especially the one of your Dad....ahhh, the good ol' days...they seem so quiet and peaceful. Your Halloween doll is great...I love it.

I am glad you like your pumpkin...I am deep in pumpkin~ville and acorn~ville...I have been seen all over the Northwest gathering acorns like a tall squirrel in cowboy boots...quite the sight!

Have a great day.

Smiles ~ Ramona

Your parents really could've had a TV show. They are perfect for an Ozzie and Harriet kind of series. Actually a perfect little family. Thanks for sharing them with us. Your pumpkins are gorgeous. Love them. Mimi

Scrap for Joy said...

Always love yur family pictures. Wonder if I could just photoshop myself into your group? Your Dad reminds me very much of my Dad. Always a white (starched!) shirt worn with a tie and suit and freshly polished dress shoes. When I see how men dress for work now it's sad. Dress-down Friday run amuck! Your pumpkins are just so elegant! One just won't do-you have to have a bunch. They all look so regal together. Speaking of pumpkins-that cute pumpkin holding the doll is sweet, too! xoxo Joyce

Glad that it all worked out with you and Cindy. I know that Cindy is delighted. I also hope that you are good with all the extra orders are coming now.

The Berry's Patch said...

Those pillows are too cute! Hope your mom's new meds are working. She looks as beautiful as ever! And your dad...what a handsome guy. :-)

Its So Very Cheri said...

I am finally getting through some of the, over 1000 e-mails sitting in my e-mail folder that haven't been deleted yet--trying desperately to get caught up.

I so hope you follow without being annonymous. I am following you as well now --too.


I have enjoyed looking through your blog.

I was 2nd in 4 , my parents had 3 girls then a boy!!!!
Yes, your Dad looks so handsome all dressed up for work!!! I think back then they dressed up so much more!!! Even if you work in a professional place now it rarely includes a jacket, so he looks mighty fine!!! Hope Mom is doping ok, I hate blood tests!!!
