What joy the gospel gives me. I can approach the throne of God with confidence, not because I've done a good job at my spiritual duties, but because I'm clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. ~ C.J. Mahaney

October Family Weekend and Fall Give-Away


Oh, my!  It's October already!  The first weekend in October we always celebrate with Tom's side of the family in north Georgia for our fabulous weekend reunion.  This year's theme: Russia/Ukraine.  More on that and pics to follow.

Time to update you on the Baby Saint status.  Abby had a sonogram last week and learned that the baby is a BOY!  So very excited about our new little grandson expected in late February. 

World, meet Kyle Brinson St.Clair

My sister-in-law, Rochelle, guessed his name on her first try.  So, she's the winner of the name game give-away.  Rochelle, you have a pan of chocolate brownies coming your way shortly!

Speaking of give-aways.  It's time for Laura Lee's Fall Give-Away.  I have this one almost finished.  I think you'll love this sweet quilted candle mat with traditional fall motifs.  Leave me a comment here or on Facebook or email me if you want to be entered in the drawing to win it.  Pics of the mat (approximately 12 inches diameter) coming very soon, hopefully tomorrow. 

I also wanted to show you the matryushkas or traditional Russian nesting dolls that Lacy crocheted for our weekend.  These are so precious!  Lacy, you outdid yourself again!  (There's a cute little baby one that doesn't show up unless you click on the picture.)



Have a lovely weekend and enjoy these beautiful fall temperatures wherever you are!

Put me on your permanent give-away list. I love everything you make! Lacy-Lu you are so creative. I'd say you take after me but I only crochet and am not a bit creative. Love, G~Mama

Of course, we all want to be in the drawing. I LOVE Lacy's dolls. What a cute baby gift that would be.

Can't wait to see the pictures of your pretty quilt! Please enter me in the contest! :)

Lacy's dolls are so creative and cute. Did she make up the pattern herself? What a talented young lady!

Tell Lacy that those dolls are adorable. Sarah Grace has commented several times about you sewing one of those nesting doll's on Abby's Russian outfit...every time she talks about it, she gets this sweet little smile on her face and thinks it is so cute. We will have to see it.

You can enter me into your contest. Hope you all have a wonderful and fun weekend.

By the way, hope you have a marvelous and wonderful birthday on Monday!!!!
