  1. Six weeks early must have been quite a surprise - but I'm pleased to hear that everyone is doing well.
    Isn't it weird when your 'children' get to be in their 30s? I'm going to have to get them to start lying about their ages, they are making me sound very old ;-)

  2. Not as much fun as yours, but busy-busy-busy all the same. (Thanks for asking!) What a blessing to get such a great report on the new-to-you van. I hope to get mine in the shop this week; what they find will probably determine if it's worth keeping. Congratulations on the birth of little Lincoln!

  3. You had a busy month! My baby girl is 32 and my oldest is 40. Our middle son just turned 38. Time sure flies! I have a few of Debbie Macomber books. I don't read much anymore because I am busy with my Bible studies and journaling. Have a nice week Cathy!

  4. Hello Cathy and lovely to meet you. You did have a busy October and it is surprising when we actually write everything down how much we can fit into a day or month. My children are 39 and 40 so I know exactly what you mean. Have a lovely week and great to join you for Leslie's link up. Sue x

  5. I am in love with that blanket you made... you'll have to tell me what yarn you used. & did you use a pattern or just crochet it out?

  6. That blanket is so gorgeous! I'm glad baby Lincoln and mom are safe.

    Also, a month of reading and watching Hallmark movies sounds pretty good to me right now :)

  7. Glad momma and baby are OK! I really enjoy Debbie Macomber books too.

  8. I've been enjoying some of those Hallmark Christmas movies too. I love baby showers, we are having one at work in a couple weeks for a coworker. Happy Birthday to your daughter, our daughter is forever 29 now for several years. Karen

  9. Our oldest turned 50 this year, so that really DOES make one feel old!!!I remember when I turned 50 and I thought I was so old...wow...well, anyway, what a busy and interesting month. Happy to hear that baby Lincoln is okay and healthy even if he did make an early entrance. Maybe he couldn't wait to try out that new blanket you made for him! praying all goes well for your retirement. I know you are getting excited now! I retired almost exactly 6 years ago this month. I can't believe that! Where HAS the time gone? wow. Have a blessed rest of the year...happy for your good reports at the Dr., etc. God is good.
