Our Saturday!

This Saturday, my family and I repaired our fence. It had needed repair for awhile, so it was nice to finally get it fixed. The Lord made it possible. Here's a link to my Mom's blog for the story.

My Dad showed us all how it was done. First, we had to demolish the old fence. We used a hammer to knock down the old posts. Then, we were able to start putting the new posts up. It was actually a lot of fun! I was also able to take pictures of our fence building day, so that made it even more enjoyable. 

I'm sorry this post is so overdue! I'm posting lots of pics here to make up for it. Enjoy!

Benjamin found this gecko.

The gecko had just jumped out of Benjamin's hands and we were watching it wiggle.

Paige makes me laugh!
Cool Caterpillar.
I love the way it scrunches up like that.
My hair got in this picture! Poor caterpillar!

My Favorite Things!

Recently, my friend, Kristiana, issued a Photo Challenge!! I jumped on the opportunity because I love photography. =) So, all you have to do is post 3 to 7 pictures about your favorite autumn things and link back to her blog. The deadline is this Saturday. Easy right?

Here I go!

Well, one of my favorite things about autumn is all the beautiful leaves that you can find on the ground. Here is a picture of a heart shaped leaf.

 Also, in the autumn, I enjoy sipping wonderfully warm tea and hot chocolate.

The fragrant smell of candles in the autumn is also a delight!

 So there you go! Three of my favorite things about Autumn. And here is the link to Kristiana's blog where you can learn about her favorite autumn things!

Happy Fall!!

A Finished Quilt!

A few weeks ago, I was able to finish binding the quilt that I made at a two-day quilting camp. At the end of the two-day camp, the only thing lacking on my quilt was the binding. I kept putting it off, but finally, the week before we started back to school, my sisters and I completed our quilts! Adding the binding was fun, and easier than I thought it would be! 

Here are some pics of the results:

My quilt!

I tied the quilt with embroidery thread.

I used a special stitch on the binding.
