1.   Amy is making the cutest little pumpkin sweaters.  Why, you may ask?  Well 'cause the poor 'lil punkin' is chilly, bless his little heart!  *giggles*

  10. Wow, thank you for adding Popoki! You gotta love Scout, I almost named my daughter that but was afraid she end up being a tom-boy! She is anyway and I love her just as she is. I just picked up an old copy of The Yearly with N.C. Wyeth illustrations. You gotta love Gregory Peck's Atticus and Penny.

  12. Sounds like a full week of happiness ahead.
    Loving that painting!!!
    Now that the child is in school, maybe I can finally find time to sit and read a book.
    I am thrilled the little pumpkin made your happy list.
    :)
    My heart is warmed

  14. To Kill a Mockingbird is on a banned books list? Oh that brings back so many childhood memories for me. Watching the film and being sooo terrified of Boo. I am so happy that it is Thanksgiving weekend in a few days and we will have a gang of family and friends here. Hmmm. wonder if I can get them working in my yard?

  17. It's funny, but I'm not sure which books have been on a banned list. I think Harry Potter was - somewhere - and my husband tells me that D. H. Lawrence was (but I'm not writing about his books!!!) and otherwise I'm not sure. I read and enjoyed To Kill a Mockingbird, but didn't realize it had been banned.

    I always enjoy reading your happy list. Are you hosting the party now? The link is already closed, otherwise I could write up a post and contribute - or I could do it for next time.

  18. I had no idea about this party or I sure would have been here.:(

    A friend and I just watched the cd of To Kill A Mockingbird.
    Gotta love that G. Peck....*heavy sigh
