It is Fall. Love it or hate it it is here, for those of us in the US anyway. So I have been thinking of Fall decorating and decided I should dry some Hydrangeas from the yard. I did this a few years ago and those are getting dusty so decided to dry some more.
I have no special technique--I just wait til Fall and they start turning color on the vine and I cut them and bring them in the house. I don't give them any water. They just seem to dry all by themselves. Maybe I am lucky?
The different colors they turn are pretty and very Fall looking.
Now I am looking for some wee white pumpkins--haven't found any in the stores yet. Next year I am going to ask my husband to grow me some!
This is birthday time of year in our house. It starts on September 1st when Chantel turned 15. Old enough to get her drivers permit! I can hardly believe it. I think I forgot to share a picture from her birthday so here is one...
She is such a pretty girl. To me though it seems like she should still look like this...
When it comes to the kids, time just goes by too quickly!
The next birthday happened last Friday...when Janae turned 24. Janae, Chantel and I had such a fun girls night out for her birthday!
Here are some cell phone pictures from dinner.
My mouth waters when I think about that dinner. Janae and I love Sushi, Chantel not so much. The cooked Sushi is my favorite--with all the yummy sauces. If I could afford to I would eat it everyday!
After dinner we went and saw the movie "Prisoners"--we all really enjoyed it! It was kind of a dark movie, the subject matter being someone's kids getting kidnapped and what they were willing to do to get them back. I tell you--I am not violent at all...I even carry spiders out of the house and let them go outside...but if someone did something to my kids watch out. I would lose it. I pray everyday nothing like that ever happens to my babies.
You can see in the dinner photo how tired I look...it was because I basically stayed up all night the night before making this doggie dress for Janae's birthday. I am so bad about waiting til the last minute.
Lacie looks so cute in it! Chantel picked out the Barbie fabric.
Janae's main gift was this bracelet I had made by a lady on Etsy of Janae's furbabies.
Janae loved it--which made me very happy.
Coming soon...the boys turn 14 in October. See what I mean about birthday time of year!
Hope this finds everyone doing well.
Thanks for visiting!
