PICKING A PUMPKIN-A REAL DISASTER and Join me for TEA-IF YOU DARE!

Those of you that have followed me
for a while
will remember these pictures.

They are some of my
ALL TIME FAVORITE
pictures of 
SWEET CHEEKS.

She would have been 2 almost 3
when these were taken.

Here she is proudly holding 
HER OWN PUMPKIN!
She was so happy
UNTIL
Big pumpkin--Little Hands
spell disaster!
UH-OH
NOT GOOD!

I smile every single time I see those pictures of her.

Wishing you all a
HAPPY HALLOWEEN
and
WHOOOOO said PUMPKINS
have to be scary?
WHOOOO?  
Not ME!

Of course,
I CAN be a LITTE SCARY
just ask MyHero
Care to join me for a little 
PRACTICAL MAGIC TEA?
I promise I won't cast a spell on you---
OR
WILL I?
You may ONLY drink what I serve you!
BOO

  5. I remember those pictures but never get tired of seeing them. And just what is in that tea, huh? Looks like blood to me. (But it's probably raspberry or something like that.)

  12. That I remember even when my kids were small. Sweet and so innocent that is the way they were with Mother and Grandma's guidelines.. Now it is all spooky and I am involved at the seniors home for pictures. I guess the old gals change with time. A lot are 90 years old and decorated the lobby and outside and in the common area. . Have a look on my page. and one lady writes poems at 92. For every season. . She has one for us to night at common area when kids come in. . About witches and spooks. Whooooooooooooooooo.

  39. I love seeing this little peanut when she was younger...and she sure has grown. Time flies but she is turning into a beautiful young lady!

    I just became aware of your novel and ordered it right away. I'm surprised because I'm not sure that you wrote about it on your blog. The reviews are fantastic and I can't wait for it to arrive. Kudos to you!! Congrats--I'm so proud of you and happy. It's a great accomplishment and I pray you continue to get more good reviews, sales and most of all, the time to write more!!!

    Love,

  42. No tea for me, thank you very much! SC seems to be afflicted with the same thing our kids are - growing up way too fast. Her expression in the pumpkin slipping is too cute and how fun that you caught it - the expression, not the pumpkin! I hope she didn't cry too much that day.
