Project X

     Only a little while before you find out what Project X is!  Only ten more days 🙂   Are any of you ladies figuring it out yet?  Some of you are a little off, and some are pretty close 🙂  If it isn’t making any sense, try recalculating.

Oh yes!  Do any of you want a random fact? Pomology is the study of fruit.

Butterfly Waltz – by Brian Crain

Brian Crain has  a lot of pretty music, but the Butterfly Waltz is one of our favorites!

Step Ye Gaily – Rita Hamilton
For you harp players, this is a fun book full of quick moving songs…I call them “happy” songs 🙂 

Cute Quotes

    The other day we were playing with some Apples to Apples (Bible edition) cards, and Charissa saw a card that said “Road to Damascus”.  She was looking at it and said, “What does this say?  Road to…Democrats?”  

   Yesterday Jessica asked Charissa to brush out her hair so she could do it for her.   Charissa didn’t want to do that, so Jessica tried to persuade her by saying that she didn’t want to look like she had poor little orphan hair, did she?!  Charissa replied, “Oh brother!  I do not have orphan hair!  I have American hair!!!”

 A couple of years ago, on the way home from church, Cassia overheard the following conversation:


    Bekah:  Charissa, do you want to adopt from India?

Charissa: In-deed!

    Project X makes no sense… I've got F.A.R.M.G.I.R.L. Which spells out farmgirl. Let me guess, the next clue we'll get an "S" and then after that get to the good stuff? 'Cause considering y'all's username, F.A.R.M.G.I.R.L. isn't very surprising! Hehe.

    I cannot wait to see what project X is! Knowing y'all, it'll probably be something great! 😀

    Is that crochet in the top picture? I was wondering–do any of you do tatting?
