It's Monday again. Where does the time go?? I finished this very large buffet on Sunday. When I went to put the hardware on I realized I had painted the hardware for another piece. OOPS!!! So, it's not quite done yet. My plan is to finish it by Wednesday now.

On Friday my sister-in-law and her family came to visit from Colorado. My kids absolutely love when they come. They spend every free minute with them and just have a ball. On Saturday we went to a cute little festival at a farm in town. The kids painted pumpkins, made scarecrows, and had fun. My niece even got to ride a pony who's name was Denver (which is where they are from). The wolf rescue group from NY brought an Arctic wolf for everyone to see. His photo is below. The first picture is all of us making scarecrows. I have the green jacket on and my son Josh is next to me in red. Last night was a very cool Fall evening but we had everyone here for dinner and to hang out by the fire pit and in our barn (which has a woodstove, electricity, water, etc.) They are here until Thursday. It's going to be a challenge trying to get my kids to school while their cousins are here. Thanks for visiting.

Looks like everyone had a lot of fun!
I wouldn't want to be trying to send my children off with cousins visiting either..I wish you the best LOL.

Oh boy do I remember how all the wood stuff would fly out of the craft shows! And all the eucalyptus we could make too!
