Fall we be upon us very shortly and I really think it is a wonderful time of year, especially when the weather starts to get a bit cooler. It is hard to believe that this image was almost 9 years ago. I can remember so much about that day, since I was due with my son in just a few weeks and I was thinking this was our last outing as three.

Yes, with work tapping me on the shoulder I have just decided to take a little break and enjoy doing some pages of my babies. I need to scan more of my daughter, because I have scrapped hers already that I had scanned, but scanning is just not fun, but when they were little digital was just so new! Amazing what less than 10years can do in a world of technology.

MY HUSBAND HAD BEEN TELLING THE KIDS THAT HE WOULD BUILD A TREEHOUSE AND AFTER TAKING DOWN THEIR PLAYSET, THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT WE ALL DID TODAY. ALTHOUGH MOST OF IT WAS DAD, I WAS JUST THE GOPHER, RUNNER, HOLDER. THE KIDS JUST LOVE IT AND EVEN DAD AND I ENJOYED SITTING UP IN IT AS WELL.

A FUN AFTERNOON IN ORLANDO TODAY AND LUCKILY WE HAD NO RAIN UNTIL WE DROVE HOME THIS EVENING. OK, MY HUSBAND IS NOT A HUGE SPORTS FAN, BUT HE GRADUATED FROM UCF AND IS A HUGE UCF FOOTBALL FAN. WE ARE SEASON TICKET HOLDERS AND ARE VERY EXCITED ABOUT OUR FIRST HOME GAME, IN THE NEW STADIUM AGAINST TEXAS ON THE 15TH OF SEPTEMBER. TODAY WAS A CHANCE TO MEET THE COACH, PLAYERS, CHEERLEADERS, DANCERS AND LET THE KIDS HAVE SOME FUN. COULD HAVE BEEN A BIT COOLER, BUT JUST GLAD WE DIDN'T HAVE ANY STORMS.

OK, I AM NOT CRAZY, JUST USING MY NIGHTS THAT I AM NOT UP WORKING ON IMAGES TO STILL WORK ON SOMETHING. I AM NOT AN IDLE PERSON, I CAN NEVER JUST WATCH TELEVISION, IF I AM WATCHING, I AM ALMOST ALWAYS DOING SOMETHING AT THE SAME TIME. I JUST NEED TO FEEL PRODUCTIVE ALL THE TIME, SOMETIMES IT'S A GOOD THING AND SOMETIMES IT IS LIKE A CURSE BECAUSE I CAN'T GET MYSELF TO RELAX. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO RELAXING NEXT WEEKEND ON A CAMPING EXCURSION. BLAH, BLAH SORRY STARTED TO RAMBLE, JUST THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE QUILT #3 FOR THE LINUS PROJECT.

QUILT NUMBER TWO IS FINISHED AND NUMBER THREE IS ON IT'S WAY SOON. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU WHO ALREADY RESPONDED AND ARE BEING SO GENEROUS WITH GIVING YOUR MATERIAL, IT WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED AND I WILL DISPLAY EACH ONE AS I FINISH IT.

I have started doing a new volunteer project and since I have so many wonderful clients, I thought I would ask for some help if you can. I am going to be making at least two quilts a month for project Linus and just thought I might ask if any of you might have material left over from various projects you may have done that you would like to get rid of. They need the blankets for age 2-8 the most and many have already gone to Ocala area children, since I am working with the Alachua Chapter. If you have anything at all it would be greatly appreciated. I thought I would just share an image of my scrap area and some quilts.
Project Linus is a 100% volunteer non-profit organization with a two-fold mission:
First, it is our mission to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer "blanketeers."
Second, it is our mission to provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups in local communities, for the benefit of children.
I KNOW THAT SOME STARTED LAST WEEK AND SOME PRESCHOOLERS/MOTHER'S MORNING OUT START NEXT WEEK, BUT FOR MANY TODAY WAS THE FIRST DAY OF A FRESH NEW YEAR. KIDS ARE NERVOUS, EXCITED AND ANXIOUS JUST AS THE PARENTS ARE FOR THEM, BUT ANOTHER FIRST DAY IS UNDER OUR BELTS. IT IS SCARY TO THINK THAT MINE ONLY HAVE 7 & 8 MORE FIRST DAYS TO COME AND EVEN IF THEY DON'T LIKE IT, I PLAN ON CAPTURING EVERY SINGLE ONE.

I CAN NOT BELIEVE HOW TIME REALLY DOES FLY BY. THIS LITTLE ONE JUST A FEW MONTHS AGO WAS JUST SLEEPING AWAY NOT EVEN KNOWING I WAS THERE. NOW MR. T IS READY TO EXPLORE THE WORLD. IT IS SUCH A PLEASURE GETTING TO SEE SO MANY LITTLE ONES GROW UP AND CHANGE.
