Blessing Day

I can hardly believe it's been a week already.  On Sept. 6th our little Lenore Eileen Marchant was blessed.  Ben's dad and step-mom Laurie as well as his Mom were able to make it.  We also had his two sister's Maggie and Helen and his brother Geoff with us.  We were so glad to have all the family in town to see Lenore.  Sunday we had a big lunch... how happy was I to use up a few of those cucumbers that have been running us out of house and home.  It's finally feeling like we're getting settled into our little spot on earth.  I think I must just be turning into a homebody... but it's just so reassuring to know we won't be moving "again" anytime soon.  I'll actually be able to watch the fruit trees grow... 

Here's a few highlights of the day.  I actually made her dress (no, I'm not usually a sewer...) and I knitted her booties.  Those booties are my new favorite pattern and if anyone ever needs a pair let me know, and I'd be happy to oblige... (yes, I'm an avid knitter)
