Family time


Benjamin ready for a little “hay ride” in the wagon!

Our family got together for a little harvest time fun yesterday!  My husband thought it would be nice to have a potluck dinner and a time when all of our family could be together during this fall season.  Now I’m thinking we should plan special times like this to celebrate each season!

We enjoyed dinner, being together, and a few games!  One of the games was a gourd decorating contest between teams!  We had two teams and with only ten minutes with which to work, this was the result of their creativity!


I hope you are enjoying a restful Sunday ~ and that the upcoming week will be a blessed one for you!

Joy to you!

  1. Well, that little Benjamin is sure a cutie!
    Reminds me so much of my boys when they
    were little tow heads like that. It sounds
    like you and your family had a wonderful
    and special time together. We all need to
    slow down and spend more quality time with
    our loved ones. The gourds are so cute!
    Can’t decide which I like best. I like both!

  2. Sunday blessings, Sandy!

    Little ones are just so sweet and cute ~ and how quickly they grow up as you know!

    It was a very special family time. I couldn’t make a decision on the gourds either ~ and I was supposed to be the judge! He!He! I just decided to make everyone a winner!

    Have a lovely week!

  3. I like your idea of having a get together each season… we need to make time for family and making special memories for our children and grandchildren.

  4. Hi Debi ~ I am looking forward to planning something maybe later in January when the holidays are over. It is so wonderful to have these special memory making times with our children and grandchildren!

    Special blessings to you!

    Benjamin is getting so big ~ kind of sad in a way and yet so much fun as he can say so many things now and just brings such joy to us all! We did enjoy a fun time together.

    Sweet blessings to you!

  7. So cute! I love this time of year. Things start slowing down, enjoying the fruits of our labor. Sounds like you all had a wonderful time together. There is nothing on this earth that holds more pleasure for me than family. Take care and God bless.

  8. Blessings to you Sharon, I’ve missed visiting and can’t believe Benjamen has grown so quickly. This time of year allows me to sit back and visit my friends in blogland.
    May the Lord continue to bless you and yours.
    Hugs, Noreen
