It was a great afternoon at church – we all celebrated Reed’s Great Grandma Pearl’s 100th Birthday! Yes, 100 years old!
Here is a picture of Reed with the birthday girl, Pearl Barkema.
Pearl lives at Concord Care where Mom was, too. When Mom turned 90 in September, 2009, I passed on all the leftover 90th birthday napkins because Pearl’s 90th birthday came right after Mom’s. So I thought about my mom a lot today. It was a nice party – lots and lots of people!
And it was Joe Tesene’s birthday last week, too, so Connie sent me this nice picture of Joe, Nina, Claire and Ben.
And then there was this one of the kids – Connie brought along fun surprises!
Some of you said you didn’t get the picture of Christmas Gameboard – here you go! As you can see, this pattern is a perfect table topper made in seasonal colors.
It won’t be long now before our shipment of A Country’s Call arrives at the farm. An autographed copy is $33 which includes tax and postage. We’d appreciate an address label included with your order.
Here are more of the quilts you’ll find inside the book – with the prettiest cover we’ve ever seen!
And Hazel says “hi”! I’ll try to get a picture of the chicks tomorrow – I do not think we’ve lost any but they’re so hard to count! It’s getting colder all the time and one of these days I’ll ask Reed to help me herd them into a pen in the barn. I just hate to lock them up before absolutely necessary because Mama Hen likes to lead them all over the goose pen and goat pasture.
I’m hoping for calm uneventful week. I’m also hoping you get these pictures. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
