Whatcha Working On Wednesday!!!

Good afternoon everyone!!..This seems like a Monday to us...Tim just went back to work today and Taylor to school and work after being sick....I kept having to remind myself this was Wednesday when it was time to go get Taylor at campus....And as Luke and I headed out the door he stopped right in front of me halfway down the sidewalk...I asked him what was wrong as we were in a hurry and I almost ran into him...He just stood there and said "WOW!!!!" over and over....Overnight the leaves had fallen all over the lawn and were many brilliant colors....He was captivated by them and had to pick some up to take with him in the car...In those moments in life you stop~~see and hear~~ what your 2 year old is seeing at that moment...And Luke was seeing millions of little leaves there just for him to take as many as he wanted....I explained to him why they were there and that God had taken his paintbrush and created these beautiful colors just for us....Then on the ride to campus I pointed out all the colors we are finally getting to enjoy...There are still lots of green trees, but we are having reds and yellows mixed in finally....And it is magical riding to Taylor's campus...Everyday that I go to get her we pass huge mansions and small cottages all mixed in together in an older historical part of town...It is quite beautiful any time of the year, but especially now!!!

My Watcha Working On Wednesday is filled with getting my "NEW" primitive Christmas tree filled with lights....I absolutely love it!!!...I got it from Heather that sells on ebay {oldesummerkitchen}....It is 8 ft and a German twig tree....But, NO, no pictures....not yet!...Oh my goodness, I have had such sweet emails and comments with compliments of my house...I hope I don't dissappoint you when I get my new one decorated...WHEW!!...The pressure!!...HA!...

So needless to say I have the house tore apart with Christmas totes to be put up...And Yes, I will get it done with Luke's help..HA!...He is my little helper!!...He doesn't remember any of it from last year, so he is loving it!!!

So off I go to get more done...I've been gone today and haven't been doing any decorating....I wanted to show you a little sampler I created all by myself!!!

What do you think???.............Have a good evening!!!.....Jen

So glad that you and your family are finally feeling better! The story you told of Luke and the leaves was so sweet...I often wish that we as adults could see the world through the eyes of a child...they find such wonder in the little things in life. I can't wait to see your new home all decorated for Christmas...not to worry, I'm sure it will be beautiful! I also love your little sampler...as I told you in a comment on Web Shots...it is because of you that I am trying my hand at cross stitch...I will post a picture as soon as I am finished. pam

Love the sampler. What a perfect start for your Christmas decorating! I can hardly wait to see your prim tree though I still haven't caught my breath from watching your past Christmas slideshow. Sigh ....

Smiles,

Love your blog and all the neat things you do, one thing in your slideshow caught my eye a little pillow with a saying stitched on it could not read all of it something about rotten bones? Could you tell me where you got that pattern from?
