Im FREE!!!!!

Friends~ I do apologize for the lack of posts this past week. I've been in the middle of a writing project and have had re-prioritize what I do every day. Thankfully I sent the project off earlier this afternoon and am enjoying being "free at last"!

In the afternoons my Momma, our friend Thelma, and I have been working on a huge sewing project for a lady nearby. We're really enjoying the talks, laughter, and just plain fun that have resulted in our afternoons together! I didn't know sewing was relaxing when one did it as a group!

Sawyer has really started taking an interest in helping out without being asked. If he sees us unloading the dishwasher he runs over and pitches in until the job is done. His favorite aspect is the cups, he likes to dry them. In this picture the dishes are actually dirty that he's unloading, but Momma wasn't going to discourage him from helping!!

He's also turning into a real "Ham"!!! He's getting very goofy and can make the funniest faces!

We've been trying to cultivate a thirst for good wholesome movies (such as Pride & Prejudice, Emma, Sense & Sensibility, Persuasion, Wives & Daughters, etc...) in the boys for quite some time. However, Sawyer seems to be the only one who really is enjoying it!!!
Just so you know, our boys prefer to watch cowboy and war movies and some of them consider Jane Austen a real bore!

Sawyer seems to be the only boy who has a real taste for coffee!! Despite our warnings of "It will curl your hair!" he keeps asking for it!

I love drinking coffee with Sawyer! He's a real joy to have around and I can't imagine what life would be like with out him.
It's time for me to get the sewing machine warmed up so I must be going. Till next time..... which is hopefully sooner as opposed to later!

Dear Ashley,

I am so glad that you all have been enjoying sewing together!

You are such a beautiful young lady and I love the pictures of you and Sawyer together. What a blessing it is to see such love among brothers and sister!

I know Sawyer adores you and I am thrilled he likes Jane Austen! He is such a good helper.

Thank you for sharing this post, I enjoyed it so much!

The Lord bless you!
