An Overdue Trip to Michigan for this Aunt

The end of October brought a long overdue trip to Michigan to visit the family.  I planned my trip to coincide with Halloween because I wanted to join in on the fun of trick-or-treating with niece Mackenzie (4 1/2 y.o.) and nephew Cameron (20 mo.) and newest nephew Benjamin (2 mo.).

We visited a cider mill and went pumpkin-picking.

Celebrated October birthdays (mine and sister-in-law's).


















Carved pumpkins...


















.....and took lots and lots of selfies. (I taught Mackenzie how to do this on my iPhone and now I have eleventy billion photos LOL!)



















Trick-or-treating was short-lived as it snowed and snowed and the wind was blowing like crazy.  Only in Michigan....


My visit was much too short but I did fit in a trip to my favorite Michigan quilt store Mabelena's.  I picked up some new Fig Tree fat quarters for a soon-to-be project and some great Boo Crew fabric on sale for a future Schnibble project. 

My visit was way too short and I hope to get back soon before this little guy grows up too much.

Looks like a wonderful family time creating new memories. Those little ones grow up too fast.

Adorable photos! I hope you are doing well. I have not been quilting, but life is good.
