RANDOM DAY

I don't know what it is about October, but there seem to be more birthday parties and activities than any other month. Three of my own children were born in this month, so that doesn't help either. Anyway, this Saturday was jammed packed with things to do.

We started bright and early at Edie's yard sale. That was fun. Even though we were there within an hour of its opening, she had already sold quite a bit.

She was organized and had fun tags on a lot of things. She also had some really cute helpers.

And she was dressed all "Edie" like. I tried to buy her hat.

I think she caved to the Nester's pressure because there were lots of fake things for sale.

I walked away with a Longaberger basket, a basket full of eggs, a dress for my granddaughter, and an elephant bookend. I have been looking for a basket to designate as the going up or down container. Now the stairs can remain clear so I don't trip and break my neck.

Then it was off to an eleven o'clock birthday party for one of my favorite little girls, Sarah-Cate.

I designated myself as the official photographer.
The sock scarecrows were adorable as were the guests.

Right after the party, I had to rush home to make a pin for another birthday girl, Treca.

Nate, the resident artist, was once again creating his own masterpiece with scraps.

I also made a spirit stick for school, which involved spray painting and hot gluing, while cooking roasted cauliflower soup for our next event: a school bonfire.

I forgot my camera, so a friend was nice enough to send some photos to me today!

It was a long day, but fun to connect with so many friends along the way!
