My husband and I drove to Fulton yesterday. We enjoyed dinner at Brooklyn Pizza and seeing some Christmas lights. Not long after we returned home, my husband says it is snowing. At first it is light then it really picked up!
Now we have falling leaves along with snow! Not something we see very often in MO but it does happen. Made for a beautiful drive to Columbia this morning. I love snow but these cold temperatures normally don't hit until late December. I do love snow but I was still trying to enjoy Fall with the warm days and cold nights. Now it is just Cold!

Beautiful leaves and snow in Columbia

Last camping trip of 2018

This is the last camping trip of 2018 at the Lake of the Ozarks State Park. I love camping in the Fall. Most the bugs are gone. Warm days and cool nights. I prefer camping in the Fall over any other season. We had a great time with our friends, We took our grandson  and our friend's son Trick or Treating on the Bagnel Strip. HyVee even had some festivities! The boys played for hours at the play grounds. Beautiful weather! Loads of fun! Looking forward to April 2019 to plan our first trip!

Missouri Star Quilt Company Birthday Bash

Ive been to MO Star Quilt Company 5 times now. This is my first trip seeing Jenny Doan & it was well worth the wait.
My friend Tami came to my house at 6AM. We went to my friend's house to meet up with him & another friend before 7AM.
We started the day at Macon. First breakfast then shopping at Ben Franklin. From Macon we went straight to Hamilton. I have never seen, the little town of Hamilton this packed but it was a blast!
We did a lot of shopping. We won things & some were free. Great day with great friends!

Great weather Septemnber 2018

We had some rain on Friday and Saturday that cooled us off. Temperatures are much nicer and the windows are open. Today I took my little pool down. I have to figure out where to store it until next May. I got my camera out today and snapped a few photos of my flowers. The hummingbirds and butterflies were thick today. Absolutely a beautiful day! We ran out of red food color so we are using orange. The hummingbirds don't seem to mind!

Marys Home picnic 2018

Yesterday was the Mary's Home picnic. My husband is sick so I took my mom with Mason & I. We had a great time but the heat & humidity was too much. I felt like I was walking in slow motion. The air was thick. I cannot wait until the Fall temperatures come. And I didnt get any photos of the quilts because we mostly played games. And I have way too much fabric to buy other peoples quilts. I had a great time with my mom and grandson.
