Jessie and Jacob came for a visit!
Jessie and Jacob were at our house for two days...and it was fun-filled. Jessie learned to sew on my Janome sewing machine. This is her first sewing project and I couldn't be more proud of her. She cut the squares, selected the ones she thought looked good together and then sewed them on the sewing machine. The best part about my Janome is you can regulate the speed. I had it on the slowest, which was a very good place for a beginner. Jessie is 9 and was in total control of this project.
Jacob, our grandson, is 12 and he was delighted with himself as he learned to play the piano with two hands. It isn't easy but he did a wonderful job. I can't wait for him to return so he can bang out this duet with his sister, Jessie. It was a blast.
The only bad thing that happened -- a large shopping bag of halloween candy was on the floor and our dog Boomer had himself several lollipops, two bags of malted milk balls, a Hershey bar and more! And yes, he threw the "paper" and the "chocolate" up two days later. Lovely!
And then today, Boomer had himself a salami on rye with potato chips, when we weren't looking! He has been a very bad boy! But we still love him.
