snowmen, elephants & bunnies oh my!

My progress on Rainbow bridge. This spot seems to be taking forever but that is okay.
One of two bibs Jack is making for a couples baby due to arrive in January. The other is a cute little cow.
My elephant is all finished! Cute i think!
And this? This is what happens when a determined woman (me) goes down a road she should not have trying to get a picture of the migratory birds coming in to spend time before continuing on south. Many of the farmers make sure they have food. I almost got us stuck and was sliding all over the place. Turning around was just as nerve wracking as was getting back to the highway. And the worst part was that I still couldn't get a picture! The best part? Jack kept his sense of humor through it all and why not! I still got him to his doctor appointment on time! Some adventure that was! LOL!
The following pictures are the Christmas display at Ellis furniture in Nevada MO. We stopped in to look at used sofas and ended up buying a new looking used sofa and love seat for less than three hundred dollars. We will be getting rid of Jack's recliner and our other loveseat. Th recliner just isn't working out for him at all. However we will be giving both pieces to some friends who could really use them.




So that is all for me. God bless!
