It's Pumpkin Time

Grand daughter in 2009
 It's pumpkin time once again in Indiana. How do you plan on using your home grown pumpkins? Are you going to make pumpkin bread, Pumpkin soup, Pumpkin pies or simply going to carve a face into it?
Ex-Large pumpkins are great for carving a jack-o-lantern, however, they can still be used in baking.
If you do use a large pumpkin to make some holiday pies, what do you do with the rest?
The answer is freeze it for making other recipes later on in the year.

Goats Goats and More Goats

Goats, goats and more goats.
So many goats, as well as other abandoned animals have been rescued, given a home and loved by my big brother John and my sister-n-law Sue.

Casey's General Store ran a contest and with the prize being $5000.00, Sue declared  herself the Crazy Goat Lady.
Many entered the contest, however, Sue along with 2 others are in the top 3. All 3 are talented and or famous in there own right. My thoughts are; anyone that can love animals as much as they do, rescue abandoned animals no one else wants, they will love their fellow man. Who better should be named Casey's Famous Person? Please consider voting daily for the crazy goat lady.

Family Fun with the Grandsons

Myself and 3 grandsons
Proverbs 31:28-29 Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.”

Youngest 2 grandsons
Oh how I feel blessed to share my cottage and weekend with my boys. It has been a month and I missed them so much. This is only the second time they have been at the cottage this summer.

They do love each other

Found coat in closet
The oldest grandson is now 10-years old and once came with me all the time. He actually helped grandpa build the railing for the deck. We found this coat in the closet in case we needed it as it was very breezy afternoon. It was, I believe, a size 4 and he wanted to see if he could still wear it. It still kind of fit and gave us all a smile. Family fun is so much fun, it makes a grandma so happy.

Kristin and Eric Larrew's Wedding

Dave and Kristin
On September 1, 2012 my grand daughter, Kristin Schwartz was united in marriage to Eric Larrew. With Hurricane Isaac hitting Louisiana forcing heavy rains to head north, the planned outdoor wedding made the Facebook pages with a late breaking news bulletin. The Larrew wedding was now being re-planned and headed indoors.  
Z putting down feathers

Our 3-yr old grand daughter was the feather girl.  Instead of going up the aisle just once, she did it a couple of times. She knew she had an important job to lay down the feathers so Kristin would have soft things to walk on. She would have kept going if I had not stopped her. She had plenty of feathers left.

Kristin looked beautiful as her dad, David Wayne Schwartz 11, my son-n-law; walked her down the aisle of the Martinsville Church of the First Born.

The Big Kiss

As Eric and Kristin shared their first kiss, the whole congregation looked on and cheered. The wedding, despite the weather and change of venue, was great.

Here for the first time is  Mr and Mrs. Eric Larrew.
