Knitting Hats again

It is like a sickness and I blame Susan B Anderson,writer of Itty Bitty Hats for it. Perhaps I need a recovery program; one tailored to people who like to knit hats and drink alcohol....
Anyway, I have 2 more finished projects that I have been very slow about posting.
My cousin Becky is having her second child at the end of November and she LOVES Christmas, so I thought she would enjoy this hat for her little one.

Then I made the cute little pumpkin hat for Kennedy.
She refused to wear it for the pumpkin patch trip but later did not mind it so much. Katie also pointed out to me it fits her.

And here are the some of the shots of our great time at the pumpkin patch! What a fabulous day and good weather, too!

Friday Fill In's

2 Home is where I want to be.
3. How does one sleep at work without getting caught.
4. Friends keeps me on track.
5. Please don't Piss me off today.
6. My daughters fill me with joy.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to Michelle's party,tomorrow my plans include soccer game and picnic and Sunday, I want to RELAX!

Blogoversary Contest!

I just looked down and saw that my Blogoversary is in 2 days! Hard to believe it has been a year since I began this blog. So much has happened in a year! Wow, my girls have gotten SOO big! So for my blogoversary I am going to have a contest. Since it is fall, I would like to do a fall themed contest. So the contest is as follows:
Leave me a post with your favorite fall activity. ( I am always looking for new things to do with my girls and in the fall.) The contest starts today and will end on All Saints' Day or known as my Mom's Birthday in my house. Winners will get a yet to be determined prize. I will look into something knitted related on the web and etsy stores! I will choose the winner via the very accurate electronic Florida ballot, or maybe I will just assign numbers to the posts put them all in a hat and have Katie pick a number....So please tell your friends. Bonus Entries for posting the contest on your blog and leaving me a comment and one more for sending someone here to enter. Thanks for celebrating with me!

If you could go anywhere at all to enjoy a wonderful fall vacation - where would you go and why? Somewhere you've been? Somewhere you've heard has amazing fall colors? Somewhere that's LESS fall-like than where you are?
Hmmm, this is a hard one, there are so many places I want to go and visit. I think I would really enjoy Seattle in the fall and then spending time driving down the west coast of Washington and Oregon for the fall. I love the south, so spending time in Savannah and Charleston, SC would be a lot of fun as well. And since I really can't make up my mind one more should not matter; I would love to visit Sydney Australia and then spend time driving around the country, visiting the outback and the cities of the south and seeing Ayers Rock and the opera house. I could think of more but I need to stop myself.
