Hello Blog Hoppers! It’s day 8 of the hop and today’s featured designer is Carrie from Miss Rosie’s Quilt Company. You can visit her here to see the fun project she has in store for us today!
Today’s topic is Traditions.
A turkey dinner is always tradition come Thanksgiving – and that’s on both sides of the family, so we gets lots of turkey!
You’ve already heard about one of our other family traditions – apple pie day. As you can see, we are introducing new generations to this tradition.
We also have a few fall birthdays in the family, so we always get together and celebrate. In addition to celebrating the birthdays, we take a picture of the kids for Mom to use on her Christmas card. You pretty much have to do your Christmas card photos early in Minnesota if you want them done outside. There is no way we could subject these guys to the cold December weather (without covering up their cute outfits with winter coats.) This is the shot from last year. Aren’t they cute? And like Kari said, they are so advanced! I tell ya, Aunties can be just as bad as Grandmas!
My absolute favorite tradition this time if year is getting together to see the nieces and nephews in their Halloween outfits. Unfortunately, they don’t all live close by, so I miss out on seeing them all 😦
In the beginning, there was just one ~
(Carrie, if you thought my knitting post was unfair, you might want to avert your eyes now. More cute nieces and nephews comin’ up!)
Then last year, we had four. This year there will be one more.
Sometimes it goes well
Other times, not so much.
I love trying to get them to pronounce what they are dressed as. Little Addi kept telling everyone she was a “Bum Bee”.
This little guy was a “Montey”. I can’t wait for this year, because his older sister is going to be a “Titty” and he just loves “Titties”. He says they are so soft and fun to play with.
Not that kind of titties. Gesh! This kind!!! Only these innocent faces can get by with saying such things.
I might even have to get that on video, so I can tease him about it when he’s all grown up. Yes, I might be that kind of Aunt.
We better move on to the other designers on the blog hop, before I get myself into more trouble.
