Well, the month has come and gone and I say where did the time go?  I have been super busy around here with classes and working on models and preparing for November and December classes and spending lots and lots of time with the grandchildren.  I haven't taken many pictures in class but have some to share of the kiddos, of course!!! 
Reagan, Raleigh and I made a trip to Build-a-Bear for their grand re-opening of the Raleigh store.  The girls made adorable bears and left with two new outfits for their bears.  They had a great time and I had a great time watching them enjoy themselves! 
Attended Reagan's tournament volley ball game.......they had three rounds of games and lost in the very last game.  I think she has found a new sport to love.  With her height I think she could be good at this game. 
All three kids and I went to a local corn maze which stretched over six acres.  We made it through all the mazes and completed the card they gave us at the beginning which was quite a feat.  I didn't know if little Joshua would make it the whole time but he hung in there until the very end.  I had to carry him out!! 
After we left the corn maze there was a playground and some other things for the kids to do.  Didn't realize when I was taking this picture that Joshua had stuck his entire head through the hole.  Well, it got stuck and I had to run over and get him out.  Needless to say, he wouldn't pose again!  He's new at this sort of thing I suppose!  The girls are old hat. 
I do believe this giant wooden truck was Joshua's favorite thing.  He kept running back to it. 
A face only a mother could love!!! 
Well, look what Joshua found.  A wooden cow to milk.  Imagine! 
Right after the corn maze we all had to run home and shower because we were taking my oldest son out to dinner for his birthday.  Well, poor little Joshua just couldn't hang on any longer.  He konked out with his head on the table in the restaurant.  It was a quiet dinner! 
The birthday boy celebrating the big 35!   
A family portrait making silly faces!  The girls had put on their costumes to show us.  A peacock and a Madam Hatter.  Can't remember what Joshua is going to be. 
Spent several hours with little Joshua yesterday afternoon.  He was showing me the pumpkin he and his Mommy carved.  I cannot get that child to smile for the life of me.  It was his nap time and he was patiently waiting to go to the playground. 
Finally, a smile....... 
Look at me Mina......... 
Three ladies have completed their hexagon pieces.  We met this week to put them all together.  That turned out to be quite a feat but we got it done. 

Another birthday celebration.......Joan turned 35 this month!  Happy birthday Joan! 
My friend and neighbor Sally stopped by to show me her Halloween costume.  She was just in Vegas and decided to do a Wheel of Fortune slot machine.  Very creative!!
Well, tonight is Halloween and I can't wait to see what all the little goblins and ghouls come dressed as.  We always have so much fun talking to the kids and looking at some pretty creative costumes.  Later on we'll see the grandkids and their costumes. 
I hope you all have a safe and fun Halloween and maybe find a little time to do some stitching. 
My new class schedule has been posted and lots of the classes are filling up but there's always room for more!!  So come and visit!
Happy Halloween!!
