Some friends of ours invited me and the kids to go blackberry picking the other day. We had tons of fun! Arwen was "Sal" and just munched on all the berries the moms were picking the whole time. Noah was a big help and at least half of the berries he picked weren't green! Joshua sat in the stroller and let us feed him like a little bird! Arwen insisted that we make a pie, so here it is. It turned out pretty yummy. We have enough blackberries to make two more pies.The Relief Society is making quilts for our humanitarian project this year. The family and I went to the craft store and picked out wild colors to make a rag quilt to donate. It was fun to make and we had enough material left over to make a quilt for little Larkin. Arwen loves it and wants me to make her one too! It was a lot of fun to make. I remember once we had a lesson or something at church that said after we do all the things we need to be doing to be happy...praying, scriptures, service...that we need to do things that are permanent. It's so true. It feels really good to make something that can last "forever" and have it turn out nice. It gives a great sense of accomplishment. Anyways, do something permanent today!!

Might I just say that you're amazing?!?! A pie and a quilt...two things I have never attempted and can't see my self attempting any time soon! Thanks for the inspiration to do something permanent. I'm going to give that some thought and then get to it!

Mmmmm that sounds delicious! I love Larkin's quilt. I have had this serious itch to create and have therefore decided to sew Halloween costumes for our family. You need to be very excited because they will be quite the treat. Just a hint, Evan has decided what we will all be.
