Fun at the lake.

It's been a busy summer here at the lake this year.
This week we have two more grandchildren staying with us.
This is Sadie, and Zoey.
Sadie is four, and Zoey just turned eight.

We just returned from the groomer with Bella, and wanted a picture before Bosco(Bella's brother) tore her ribbon out of Bella's hair.
I think we'll be busy this afternoon making Hollyhock dolls.
It won't be long, and the flowers will be finished blooming.
Summer is slipping away.

I thought I would add one of the dolls that we made.
This one was put together by Zoey.
If you look close...you can even see she has bangs under her hat.
You can get really creative with these dolls.
When making these with the girls, we leave them pretty simple...yet sweet.
I hope your summer has been as joyful as mine has been so far.
There is plenty of fun yet to come! Get outside, and enjoy the season!
God bless you!


  1. Debbie, there's two little cuties. The dog is cute too. :):) Glad you have been enjoying your family. I am thinking today it is starting to seem like fall. I am not ready !! I want to milk this summer for all it's worth. Take care and enjoy these good days of sunshine. Blessings to all, xoxo,Susie

  2. How precious to have them with you for a visit! I laughed over the other one pulling her bow off! I would also love to see the Hollyhock dolls???
    I am really enjoying all the rain we have received this summer, our answer to our prayers...
