Catch up (mostly in pictures)

Lots of Pom Poms have been made. Hopefully an idea I have will work. More to come
Yep a kitten.  Murphy. Very sweet and already litter box trained- only took a couple of days
Went apple picking. Went a little crazy and picked a bushel of apples. Roughly that's over a hundred. A batch of applause is cooling as I type 6 quarts worth and barely a dent

Boston Cream cake from scratch. Mmmmm it was so good
Finally the first fire of the season. Celebrated of course with marshmallows 
Best hard "boiled" eggs. Bake in the oven 325 for 30 minutes then cold water bath. Amazingly good. Just put the eggs in a muffin pan for ease.

It's a Boy!!!

No I am not pregnant, but we do have a new addition. Meet Bubba (that's the name he came with and we added..) Fett 
He was getting scratched and was loving it
He's just about a year and a half and such a mushy boy. He is totally a love bug. He's is slowly adjusting. Well he only has been here for a full day so I say he's doing well. 

He's such a sweet boy even with Mj. No nipping or scratching. He's talkative too and when he purrs you barely hear it

It's Fall

I know not officially but the signs are showing up slowly (besides juvenile bears getting kicked out by their momma.  If I was told months ago that before my kids went outside to play I had to check and pick up bear scat I wouldn't believe you. You would also think that the bear scat would keep the deer away. Nope. It seems our yard is the local potty place)

Anyway. This is the sign I'm talking about 
Fall ball. We found the local little league and got Dillon signed upon time. He had fun tonight and that is what counts. 
I liked this sign they have posted 
And here you go Aunty
He would only let me take the picture if the fork could be in it too. Silly boy

It's the best I could take. A special little helper just couldn't stop helping :)
Close up. 

It's wide and long. I can wearily like a stole or scrunch it up and wear it like a scarf. It is crochet and was fast and fun to make. So much so that....
I started another one (thinner yarn smaller sized) scarf sized hopefully as a gift.

Green Blob

I am roughly 2/3 done. I am resizing it smaller so I'm not completely sure. I also completed this little kit
I found this really amazing Etsy shop that sells needlepoint kits. I have not been able to find needlepoint kits anywhere. I picked up a couple ornament kits and a larger kit that I can't wait to start it (just need to stretch it first) but it most likely will have to wait a little bit -Christmas crafting has started

I am now the momma to two teenagers

When did that happen. My second oldest turned 13(!!!!!) yesterday
That's my spunky and full of sass Kris. She just couldn't give me a nice picture she was having too much of a good time 
Though I did manage this one 
This was from a weekish ago. She's helping Mj to learn go to drive. One advantage on being tiny

They are all growing up too fast. Days go slow years go fast.

One of the happiest days of the year

From left to right
And-6th grade
Kris-8th grade and 
Dillon-9th grade

I also want to point out the my three are standing in 3 different steps. Dillon is on the landing with me, Ang up one step and Kris is up two steps. My Dillon is still taller then those two girls. Crazy at 14 he's 6'2".
