From last year....

This is from a drive in Parke County...taken in 2011.  It looks about the same type of weather we are having today.

It rained during the night, and has definitely taken a cold turn.  I checked the temperature some time after noon, and it was 47ºF.  I wish it had stayed warm one more day.  I was afraid Lorelei would be bored, but she has just played around, watched some cartoons, went down in the basement with me and even let me quilt some while she messed around.

Kids can find entertainment anywhere.  She found a bunch of twist ties that had came out of my garbage bags.  I never use them on garbage bags, but usually lay them aside thinking they will come in handy for something.  Well, she played with them for at least half an hour...she would unroll them and say they were her mat.  And she would spread them out like she was going to sit on them.

Then she found a place to hide them...then she would go find them like it was the first time she had ever seen them.

She was worrying last night about Santa Claus and our lack of a fireplace.  So I took her and showed her the chimney down there...and showed her the old opening for when this house had a coal fired furnace.  I told her he just snaps his fingers and he is instantly little enough to fit through, then he just comes up the stairs like we do.  And that seemed to satisfy her.

Isn't it funny what kids say, do & believe!

My sister walked in to Landon's (her son, my nephew) room this morning & he was talking in his sleep... when he woke up she asked him what he was dreaming about & he said, "Hay. And a girl in a tractor!" He's such a hoot! =)

Love the photo...the little pumpkins are so cute. Sounds Lorelei is good at entertaining herself and that is so important. I like your explanation about Santa :-) What are you going to do when she is smart enough to read your blog and you can't talk about her any more :-) LOL She may start her own blog and tell stories about her memaw.

Funny what kids will think about... I used to worry that Santa couldn't get the present I wanted one year (a big sliding board) down our chimney... SO, Santa (Daddy) left it beside the porch and left me a note of explanation... I was satisfied!!!!!!

Cold front is not here yet... I am READY for some cooler weather... I was sweating while working in the yard today!!!! No rain here either.

Hugs,
Betsy

What a clever idea with the pumpkins

Kids can really entertain themselves quite well! Lorelei never ceases to amaze me, from what you describe about her.

I think I remember this fence of pumpkins. Looks like the horse isn't so sure about them. :)
Lorelei sounds like Lucy. Lucy too can find something to play with. Lily on the other hand has to be entertained. :)
It was 30 degrees colder here today than yesterday and misty rain.

This is a fine fence shot with the horse and pumpkin post tops. Very nice shot.

Love the fence. Pumpkins always make me think of fall no matter when I see them.

Kids have such marvelous imaginations! It's so fun to watch and listen to them play.
