This past Saturday was opening day of shotgun deer season. It's also my son's birthday. He was born on opening day, just before daybreak. His daddy was an avid deer hunter. It was Tanner and I right from the get-go, so to speak, as he was no sooner born and his daddy took off. How apropos that he grew to be an avid hunter himself.
So, our weekend started off with family. Our 3 year old grandson spent the
|Lincoln mimicking Grandpa Steve...so cute!|
We've noticed that Lincoln mimics our actions allot here lately. He found a book and some play glasses and saddled right up to Grandpa to do some evening reading. Love it!
It was one of those lazy days. I had plenty to do, but my time was going to be devoted to the kids. It was a p.j. relaxing kind of day. I started chili and vegetable soup in the crockpot. Coffee was on and at the ready.

Then, she asked if she could learn to sew so we tried that. She's a lefty and I'm a righty. More time and patience is needed with less commotion. We'll try the lesson again another time. I love her age right now. She's so interested in everything and learning is exciting.
In my studio, I'm designing mixed media canvases...I believe this to be true!
Sunday morning took us to church and then a day of Christmas shopping. It was lovely! Funny, when the kids were little, I did all the shopping. Now that they are out of the house, the hubs comes along. It's so nice...wish we would have done more shopping together back then...but, then, maybe not. Now it's kind of relaxing and a bit romantic. Lunch here, a coffee break there...and, maybe a stop for dinner on the way home.
There's just something about weekends.
