Is it Already October? Time to Start Decking The Halls!!

Summer came and went in a whoosh!
I must say that it was a wonderful Summer. For the first time in 9 years I had all my children together. We had a fantastic time, we went to the beach together and made sand castles, burried Ethan up to his chest in sand, jumped in the waves and enjoyed life.
The weather here this summer was quite unusually overcast and cold, but that didn't stop us from enjoying each day.
The garden we put in was bountiful and we ate the most delicious tomatoes,zucchini beets, carrots, radish and onions. Steve even played Mr. Mc Gregor and brought me a baby bunny that he found hiding under a tomato plant. It must have been frightened to death and had a story to tell when his mom came to collect him! Steve put him back under the plant where he had found him. We still can't figure how he got there, The rabbits never ate or destroyed any of the produce.
I gathered peaches and made three batches of jam also.

I am back into the babysitting routine now that mom is back to work and brother is in Kindergarten. My designated day is Friday. Big sister accompanies baby Paige.
Last week we had Fairy dress up day and boy were the Fairy Princesses darling!
I think that I had the most fun!
My PC has been in the shop for 6 1/2 weeks!! This being the reason for the delay in my posts.
I'm happy to be back!
I would love to know that you have stopped by for a visit.
Please leave a comment to let me know you stopped by!
