Oh how fabulous, Marmee... Family being together is GREAT.... Looks like a great 'harvest' and Halloween time was enjoyed by all. Garnet is adorable... I'm sure you could have just eaten him up.... What a Cutie Pie.

"Why are you smiling to yourself Cheryl?"

"Just looking at photographs on someone's blog Mr P."

That is exactly it Marmee. I am smiling to myself. Looking at your lovely photographs of shared family times. I always sleep better knowing people like you are out there. Making family their priority and coming together to make memories that will last a lifetime.

God bless you all my friend.

I shall be sitting by a log fire tonight. The door has opened and winter has come in......

Such lovely photos, such a happy family time! What a darling Garnet is, she is just adorable.

I so enjoyed seeing dear Bea on the previous post too, I have a very,very soft spot for her and even now feel such relief that she was returned to you. She has grown into a real beauty and I can see what a very gentle soul she is, I love dogs so much...

Have a Happy November Marmee :)

Hello Dear Marmee,
I don't know how I missed this wonderful portrayal of fun and frolicking at your beautiful farm. You all really know how to make everything amazingly fun. Every single nook and cranny made homey and appealing. All your girls and gals looking marvelous and having fun.
Loved all the photos!!!
hugs to everyone, Meems
