Treat or Treat at Bonnie's House!

Momma & Mary
Andrew as Mater

Mary's Birthday Party!

Mary had the perfect day for her 9th Birthday Party.  Once again, we had an outdoor harvest theme.  The kids carved pumpkins, played in the leaves and had a scavenger hunt.  We had hot dogs, chili, miniature pumpkin cakes and homemade ice cream.  Mary had 4 friends attend.... Katie, Charly, Jacob and Ben.  Everyone had a good time.

New Creek Volunteer Fireman save Charlie Cat

The volunteer firemen worked for about a hour and 30 minutes.  Charlie was very timid.  At one point he jumped and the fireman caught him mid-air and brought him down safely.  Charlie was very glad to be out of the tree.  I hope he doesn't plan to get into mischief again anytime soon.

Charlie Cat stuck in Tree for 3 full Days!

Bike ride from Frostburg to Cumberland

Mary and I had an enjoyable day this past Saturday riding our bikes along the Great Allegheny Passage.  It was a perfect day.  Mary and I hope to ride the trail again soon.  She most definitely needs a new bike this spring.  Mary is growing like a bad weed.  ; )

Suzie's Basket Quilt

Mary is always in my quilt pictures.... the little cutie!
I can't remember when I started this quilt.  I think it was in 2006 or something like that.  I finished the top in 2008.  The quilt is finally finished and on my bed.  I think it is one of my favorites.  I made pillowcases to go with it and have red sheets.  It is very cheerful and kinda Christmasy.

Happy Birthday! Grandma

Mary made the sign just for Grandma!  Have a terrific day of October 8th!

Charlie Cat had to join in the fun!  as usual!

Happy Birthday to Grandma!

The Pink Cadillac Diner

I forgot to mention the Pink Cadillac Diner.  It was the yummiest burger I have eaten in a long time.  A 50's diner with Elvis memorabilia everywhere.  Mary loved it.

Busy weekend for Mary and Momma

Hi Family.... We're back.  Sorry for the long delay in getting our blog up and running this school year.  The first 6 weeks in over.... only 5 to go.  Mary had perfect attendance (she has no choice!).  I am loving my classes once again.... some how I am always blessed with the best kids.  ; )

We made a road trip to Foamhenge on Saturday with Charly and Roy.  It really was a mystic experience.  The weather was perfect and we got there at just the right time for eerie shadows.

Today - we went to the Apple Harvest Festival in Burlington.  It was a small festival with good food and good music.  Mary and I are working on School work at the moment and then tonight we have bible student and Awana.  It was an exhausting weekend but well worth the effort.
