Fun at Mimi's and Pafa's!

She kind of looks mad here, but isn't!  She's pretending she's sewing and she's watching a cartoon!!

She loves being outside.  It was freezing, but she had fun at the playground at the beach.  She rode the horse and I pushed her on the swing.  Won't be able to fit in that type of swing much longer.  Don't you love the sunglasses!!

Thanksgiving!!



We had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  My friend Vicky gave her a new panda puppet which she immediately called Murry!!  She 'read' to Pafa! and we snuggled.  Sorry, I didn't get any pictures of our dinner but it was good.

More from River River Cruise

This map was on  our bed when we entered our room.  It explained the cruise.  To drive it would only be about 3 1/2 hrs, but on the water it's 522 miles and there are many twists and turns and locks.

We got to tour Fort Campbell.  We were going to eat with the soldiers, but it took so long to check us in through the gate that all the soldiers had finished. This is the tray that they use.  The are known as the 'Screaming Eagles'!  The bottom picture is set up for a race that was to take place the following day.  Each boot symbolizes a soldier who had died  in the past few years.  Very moving!

Trip to PA/Amish Country

We traveled through Intercourse, PA many times in our travels.  They have great quilt shop and gift shops.
Rachel was our guide one day.  She is formerly Amish and is now Mennonite.  They had a falling out with their Bishop.  She was wonderful and very informative.  She's explaining how an Amish wedding would take place.  Always in the home.
Here she is with our organizer, Deb, on the left, and her aunt Ginny.  Great trip!!

Cape Cod Quilter's Quilt Show-Sept 27th and 28th



The quilt show was at the Cultural Center in S. Yarmouth.  There was a room dedicated to the Wounded Warriors.  These are just three of the examples that were in the room.  The top two I made and the bottom one was made by Lisa Pasquerosa.  She's a long-arm quilter and did all the quilting on this gorgeous quilt on her long arm.  It's spectacular!!  People were very impressed with this room!
