Weekly Winners

My daughter helped my mother wash the carrots from our garden off in our sprinkler.
I love my mother's hands. I don't know why. I just think they have so much character.

Olivia was very intent on helping Grandma.
But she had to taste that yummy sprinkler water too.
I love sweet chubby toddler hands too...

Our yummy garden carrots all clean.
My sweet son Owen is growing like a weed these days.

Every time I see him he looks taller and less like a little boy. He turns 5 in 5 weeks... This is Olivia wearing her brother's shoes and pointing at the carrots on the ground- she thought Grandma had dropped them accidentally so she picked them all up and threw them back in the garden. She's very helpful.

Oh how I love my baby girl's laugh.

And I love how the sun shines on her sweet curls!

There was a layer of dew on everything this morning.I thought it looked so beautiful.

We picked all the apples off of our tree today because it is expected to frost tonight.

I'm really going to miss summer.

Oh my goodness what beautiful children and pictures. I used to love my grandmother's hands as well. Lately I have begun to notice that age has been laying her hands on my hands as well.
