Here a catch up, there a catch up, everywhere a catch up! Where does the time go? Whew. It seems that we are all running as fast as we can these days! The holidays are upon us and there is always something fun to see and do. It is that way here at Rabbit Run Cottage and I am sure it is that way at your home as well. Never enough hours in our days and blogging often gets put on that proverbial, all too crowded back shelf!
The Tuesday before Thanksgiving we attended Grace's first violin performance. It was such a nice concert with so many children participating. All of the 4th and 5th grades from our community were included and each child seemed to be having a wonderful time. It was so exciting to see that many young people involved in music!
Our own virtuoso!
3rd lesson and not only did she NOT fall but her sweet instructor had her moving about on one foot!
I point this out not to brag but rather to mention that Grace's mom is lucky if she can stand on one foot on warm, dry ground! Hmm...
I was able to get this picture of Daniel and Grace as we left for my Mother's.
It was a quiet day, a day for good food, family, football and parades. Just the way I like it! While waiting on her turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes, Grace used her time to work on Christmas craft projects.
When will that turkey be done? Okay, how about a little game of checkers with your big brother?
Who won Miss Grace?
My nephew, the Boo man...
Thumbs up eh? Gooooood turkey Grandma! Gooooood turkey.
Grace with her Grandma
Aw gee guys...showin' Dan a little love huh?
My favorite turkey...Bill! Now THIS is a scary sight!
Grace with Boo and Boo's pretty Mommy, Grace's Aunt Lisa.
He is soooooo smoochable!
Hey Daddy...what'cha doin? Sleepin?? Wake up Dad!
The next day we attended a parade of trees sponsored by a local hospital's ladies auxiliary.
I think my brother and sis in law would have loved this tree... Go Buckeyes!! OH! IO!
Isn't this adorable? Bidding was way up on this little tree! The sweetest glass ornaments that looked like chocolate chip cookies, Starbucks coffee mugs, Hershey Bars, well, it was just as cute as can be. The tree sat in a big coffee cup for good measure!
Grace loved this one as you might guess! All things Hannah Montana!
All for the children in need of care at the hospital...
Two of my favorite holiday treats...Grace and Bill!
And Mom too!
This tree was gorgeous. Faux hydrangea, pheasant feathers, glass ornaments, beautiful ribbon...it was a beauty. When I commented that I would love to do our tree like this, Grace and Bill looked at me like I had just announced I had switched my ardor from Brian Dennehy to
Pauly Shore! Shockers!
Santa arrived, the tree was lit...the kick off to Christmas has begun...uh oh! I better get moving!
Till next time, I will be by to visit you all soon and dropping in here from time to time.
As always, each one of you stays in my heart, thoughts and prayers.
Love and Hugs,
