Georgia Trip

 We drove up to Georgia Family on Friday.....I got one plus a half socks made in the 8 hour trip;  these are for Abigail!
 Caleb and Cassandra and family were here, too-there were people beds spread out everywhere!
 This is the reason for the gathering-Bruce was being ordained as a minister.  This is the ordination council that worked with him on Saturday and we could sit with him and listen.
 Sunday at church, the congregation accepted the ordination recommendation for him to be welcomed into the calling of pastor so the church prayed and participated in the ceremonial laying of hands for the acknowledgement of God's work.  It was an incredible service to witness;  I couldn't imagine missing it for the world!
 The family picture after all the hard work was done!
This was Bruce's parents and his brother and family after church at the McKee home.
 And Marsel's parents and friends, too.
 Monday morning, we celebrated Abigail's 11th birthday!
 She blessed us with her musical skills the rest of the day!  (Really, she is very talented and she could make the harmonica sing!)
 I also got my two sided hat finished, modeled here by Caleb-thankfully, you can't see the ridiculous faces he is making while modeling for me!
 I will be making another one of these hats soon-they will be for Jared and Krystle who will need it next winter!
 In the evening, we had birthday pie!
Yes, happy and tired-that about sums up the whole family at the end of this very busy occasion!

  1. Congrats on the big family celebrations! Such fun.
    Don't you just love that hat? I'm still wearing mine everyday. I am going to hate to pack it away.
    Those socks look good enough to eat. Felici? Now I want some jellybeans.

Pumpking

 KnitPicks had a free pattern for this pumpkin dishcloth.   It was a bit fiddly at the bottom but stitch by stitch the pumpkin grew!  ...
