Bits and pieces of a Fun Sunday

Sept. & Oct. are my favorite months. I love the change in the weather and the beautiful colors of mums. We went to Menards and saw the most healthy mums and you could not beat the price. "Save Big Money at Menards". I ended up with 2 shopping carts full. I took some over to Steph. I also got an Ivy plant in honor of baby Ivy who will be here soon. When I left Steph's house today, she looked very ready to have the baby. I have a feeling it will be this week, if not sooner. I also wanted to share my Goodwill find this weekend. It is a Tea party set with wooden table and 2 chairs. I could not believe it was only $6.99 and brand new, still in the box with the ties around it that you need a chain saw to remove to take it out of the box.
We watched Abby today and she loved playing tea party, but I guess I know now why the box said for ages 8 and up. The tea pot, cups and saucers are real and breakable.....We found out when Abby dropped a saucer and it broke. So, I will be trying to find the plastic ones and put these up for a while. It was such a beautiful day outside today. We took Abby to see her cousins. Here is Gray giving her a big hug.
Abby is the woman driver. Gray is riding in the back.Here is Noah, who lost his first tooth this weekend, pushing Abby in the stroller. He was practicing so he will be ready for his sister, Ivy.This was just bits and pieces of our Sunday. It was a great day!

I am so glad you had a nice Sunday. I am praying for Steph, that this baby will come soon, and quickly. I'd love to share my birthday with the sweet baby girl! :)

Thanks for the message on my blog. I don't actually know Erin. She saw me on Baby Catherine's blog. It's fun to connect with people this way though! Your grandkids are adorable! Looks like you are a fabulous grammy! Lucky kids!

I love these words... "Children are the anchors that tie parents to life."

Well, that being said, are there any words beautiful enough to describe grandchildren? What a beautiful day you had for your beautiful grandchildren. I guess the word "cherish" could fit!

We're all waiting for the news of Ivy too!

It was a beautiful day yesterday. I'm glad you got out to enjoy the weather, because it's not so nice today.
