Busy, Busy, Busy


Oh lookie~it's gone!!! So anyway~Tim & I have been helping our youngest son gear up for his Eagle Scout project. He needed a little push to get the ball rolling. Here he is with his project proposal. He'll be doing a lot of painting for our local fire department. He will also be doing some landscaping around the building & designing a plaque for the fire departments 150th anniversary. Good news is the project was approved. Yippee!! He's on his way!!

 Next up~lots of fundraising. Fundraiser #1 came up super fast. The fire department was having an open house this past weekend for Fire Prevention Week, so Stephen asked to host a bake sale. They said yes, so the baking began. Friday (my day off) was spent baking. Stephen did a lot of the packaging & pricing, but it was up to Mom to do the baking. Another friend baked too & Grandma donated some baked goodies, jelly, & salsa to the cause. This is just some of the loot.
 Here he is the day of the sale. All priced and ready to go. Waiting for his customers. It didn't take long. It ran from 10-2 and was a great start to kick off his fundraising.
And this last pic is for Marie aka Olde Lady Morgan. She's already seen it on Facebook, but I thought I'd tease her a little again. You see, we did a swap & teased a bunch. My package arrived on Saturday. Hers is sitting in my truck waiting to be mailed. No mail today, but it will go out first thing tomorrow morning. I'm sad to say, it will probably sit at her house for a bit before she gets to open it. She'll be on shopping trip with a group of ladies & living it up.

Have a great day!! I'm going to try to play catch up in blogland for a bit before I have to go to work.

Hi Becky, You have quite a handsome son! I sure wish I could have attended his bake sale, everything looks yummy! I am sure it was a sell out. Can't wait to see your swap goodies from Marie and her goodies from you! What a fun swap! We all stay so busy, I try to read blogs and don't have time to post, I say I will come back to post and it never happens. Have a lovely fall. hugs, Lecia

Hi Becky...CONGRATULATIONS TO YOUR SON...I love that they get so involved. I guess it does take a bit of prodding but they can do so much after that can't they.
