Great Grands Visit the Twins

Last weekend, before I ended my visit in Aiken, Momma, Daddy,and Aunt Cathy came by to see Annette and Lee. They were driving back to Ridgeland from the Clemson football game.

Aunt Cathy takes a turn with Annette. . .
Everyone agreed . . . they are beautiful babies!!
Fall Breakfast
Earlier in the day we made a yummy breakfast. So many wonderful friends were bringing great things for dinner, we had eaten light breakfast all week . I decided to splurge a little on Sunday morning: we had sauage casserole and pumpkin muffins. It was a nice treat!
The sausage casserole was a recipe from food network. One of those things you can make the evening before and refrigerate until time to bake. I used regular white bread and left out the green onions.
Then there were those yummy pumpkin muffins with cream cheese filling. I only changed the type of oil. I used canola oil instead of olive oil. After the recipe is completed . . . fill muffin cups about one-half full.
Then add 1-2 teaspoons of cream cheese mixture.
Then top with a little of the brown sugar - cinnamon crumbs.
Voila!! The finished product . . . I'll definitely be making these again.
Knitting Babies have to sleep sometime . . . I was finally able to finish Annette's and Lee's baby blankets. Here is Annette's being blocked.
Here is Lee's after blocking.
I have enjoyed these long projects for the babies, but have to admit that I am REALLY excited about being done with these special blankets. I can't wait to get started with a few shorter projects I have been eyeing for quite some time.
My visit to Aiken would not have been complete without visiting Barbara Sue Brodie's wonderful knitting and needlework shop on Hayne St. She was having an October birthday celebration for the shop and there were just a few things that I couldn't resist! Here is the ingredient for my next knitting project . . .
Any idea what this might turn into???????

First off...Annette and Lee are precious. You have every right to brag and be proud of them:) Secondly, I love your blog! When you mentioned today that you had pictures of the twins on your blog, I was surprised you even had a blog! But I'm so glad you do. Your sewing and home making talents are incredible! Keep sharing!
