We had a great weekend.
Saturday was quiet...D made a trip to Dayton, and I stayed home and organized pictures.
Sunday we went to Hillsdale to visit Grandma and Grandpa.
It was such a beautiful day, and it was so nice to spend some time outdoors...we worked on picking up some leaves...they have SO MANY leaves!!!
(love you grandma and grandpa...thanks for such a wonderful day together!)

  1. Hannah--imagine my surprise and excitement when I saw you visited your grandparents live in Hillsdale. It has been a few years (OK a lot) but I attended and graduated from Hillsdale College. I haven't been bake for quite a few years but I always loved falls at Lake Bawbeese (sp??). Anyhow just wanted to say Hi and share our common place! Blessings and Hugs!

  2. Your house had to smell wonderful! (Well, except for the venison).
    Can't wait to try the pumpkin. I can only imagine M's delight as she flipped through the pages.... Isn't is nice to have someone so happy and appreciative of your hard work? Love ya.

  3. What are you going to do with all that pumpkin? My favorite is pumpkin muffins with the crumb topping. Mmmmm....! :)
