Amended: The Sweetest Pumpkin and a Break

Go to the bottom of this post for the amended part... :)

Hello, Dear Ones! I know. I'm shameless! Being a first time Grandma I just have to share these snaps of my sweet little pumpkin, Carter!

She's seven months old now and has gotten her tiny little personality.


She is one little happy pumpkin. She smiles constantly and is a complete joy!


Drooling is her job!


She's become very observant of everything ~ even her tiny toes and fingers.


She's sitting up now by her tiny self!


I love this little tiny pumpkin!



What's this? My Halloween outfit?



Thank you, Grandma! I love it! :)


Oh, Dear Ones, I wanted to thank you all again for your participation in the Heart of the Home Party! We had 104 kitchens on display! I left the party open a few more days and a few more kitchens showed up! From all of your comments I've decided we will have this party again next year, God willing and the creek don't rise. :)

I also wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your comments to me. I really do try to answer them all. Sometimes I get behind, but I really do my best to comment back. I am so honored you would come to see me like you do. When I started blogging a few years ago I never realized any one would really like what I had to say or show. You even put up with all of my silliness! I love you for that, Dear Ones.

With that all said, Dear Ones, I need to take a little break. Since I've been kitchen partying and redoing the bath and trying to get everything back in shape ~ I'm pooped!! I'll be back in a week or so. Love you all and I'll miss you. You know you're really a big wonderful part of my life!!

That's What Friends Are For


And I never thought I'd feel this way
And as far as I'm concerned
I'm glad I got the chance to say
That I do believe I love you

And if I should ever go away
Well, then close your eyes and try to feel
The way we do today
And then if you can remember

Keep smilin', keep shinin'
Knowin' you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

Well, you came and opened me
And now there's so much more I see
And so by the way I thank you

Whoa, and then for the times when we're apart
Well, then close your eyes and know
These words are comin' from my heart
And then if you can remember, oh

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
In good times, in bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
Oh, that's what friends are for

Whoa... oh... oh... keep smilin', keep shinin'
Knowin' you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for
