I have come to realize over the years that October is my favorite month! I love the colors, the falling leaves, the change in the weather, I don't mind the rain......I love pumpkins, seeing the school buses, daylight savings, the coming of the holidays, making cookies, candy corn, most everything about it!!! It also happens to be the month of my birthday.....and now we have a new addition and a grandson born in October too!!

Lincoln Daniel Busby Was born on October 2nd at 3:04 am weighing 7lbs 4 oz and 20 1/2" long. I had the amazing privilege to be present in the room at the time of his birth!! What a miracle birth is!!! WE are totally in love with Lincoln!! He is sleeping and eating well and seems to be a very mellow baby!!!

Addison is loving her new brother.....and making adjustments accordingly sharing her mommy and daddy now!! She is being such a good helper and seems so much more grown up sitting next to Lincoln now!!

We have another new addition coming next week.....we are getting a black lab puppy!!! She was born on September 2 and will soon be able to leave her mother and come live with us!! We are all so excited to get her. We are going to name her LUCY!!!

The girls came over the other day and helped me check out this new crate for Lucy to use!!! They seemed to think it will work just fine!!

They are growing way too fast and quickly approaching their first birthday next month!! They are taking a swim class called MER-BABIES at the local community collage. Since there are three of them....Mommy takes one, Daddy takes one, and I take the third one each week, ten weeks for 30 minutes of water class fun.....they love it!!!

Jeff's knee is improving with his physical therapy now over..... it still gets tired after a long days work....and his days are LONG!!! I sure appreciate having such a hard working husband!!!

We had a great time as a vendor at the Northwest Quilting Expo last month here in Portland. Lots of friends came by my booth for a visit....and so fun to see all the gals who take classes from me!!! The booth is always lots of work to set up  but worth the effort seeing everyone enjoy themselves!!! Again.....praises to my husband....I had to scurry off to a wedding the day of tear down so bless his heart he did it all by himself!!!

Classes are keeping me busy at Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe which I am just loving spending time at!! There is so much to see and choose from. Jan and Brian do a great job filling the store!!!

And then its always important to find some time just to be the Nana!!

 Hope all of you are enjoying October as much as I am!!!

I used the cat/pumpkin pattern (from the photo on the bottom) to create some punch needle bowl fillers~ they turned out adorable! I'm laughing at the 3 in the dog cage, as they might be the only way to keep them safe and from not climbing. :-)

Your little Lincoln is so sweet. Congratulations to you and your family on your new additions. Your little Lincoln is so sweet and Lucy looks mischievous already. Hope to see you soon.

October is the BEST both for your family! Lincoln is a doll and look at his sweet big sister! I love Lucy! Your fall wool crazy is absolutely wonderful...oh I wish I lived closer to you! I'd love to learn how to do that.

Wow, you have a lovely family....I don't know where or when, but we have met, was it at Cottons, the quilt shop in Battle Ground, WA.??
I used to work there. I now live in Fl. I too love October.
