Flashback Friday- The next generation

Hello and Happy Sunday Folks!  I hope you've been enjoying your last few weeks and the festivities of Canadian Thanksgiving and upcoming Halloween (if you celebrate them).

I have been pretty busy and didn't ask too many questions the last two weeks but there are still some great answers you all provided for FF!   But before we get to that let me show you two things.  First a card, made by my daughter, and sent to Amy Tsuruta in thanks for fun times and a few small gifts she gave to her.  This is Sophie's card.  An expert in the making for sure!  But in case you are having a little trouble with the artistic interpretation of my 5 year old, here is a description-  Sophie with her baby fox pet and the foxes binky.  There are birds in the sunny sky and bubbles popping.  

Also, here is a flashback from my 6th birthday- a mug from some family friends.  I distinctly remember this party at Chuck-E-Cheeses.  I remember running around like mad, playing in the ball pit, hurting my pinky toe and receiving this gift.  I've been promising my daughter for a year now that when she turns 6 I will pass down this family heirloom (ahem) to her.  That day is only one week away!  EEK!  She has promised in return to share it with me though, since I am obviously attached. :) 

Putting pep in my step! (10/14)
Q- What is your dream job?
A- SusieCraftHappy said- "Oh and my dream job...Homemaker...I know its old fashioned, but if I could stay home and just care for my home and all that's in it I think I would be very happy. Of course I would be crafting too. That goes without saying."

Fall Festivities (10/16)
Q- Do you celebrate Halloween or Fall in any way? If so what is your tradition?
A- Evelyn said, "We celebrate Halloween by making a jack-o-lantern every year even though my kids are grownups now!"

Use What you Have and Seize the Sketch (10/25)
Q- Do you make your own holiday cards? If so, when do you start?

A- Arlene said, "Oh, Question of the Day - of course I make my own cards. I am so still in the mood of making Christmas cards that I keep on making them after Christmas day...."

Your turn, your Question of the Day, what do you want to know?

Thanks for stopping!

What a fun heirloom that you passed down to your DD! Her drawing is so bright and lovely! I USED to like to take our kids to Chuck E. Cheese...but it didn't last long (LOL)! So awesome that you keep your blog a fun place to hang out! I think since American Thanksgiving/Christmas is coming up, perhaps we can talk about holiday-related questions in the next month or so? Shopping, food, Christmas list...?

Katie darling I am a knucklehead, I really thought I was already following you. Well I am now! Your daughter is only 5 and did that? It is so fantastic and tell her I think she has a very promising career ahead of her! :)
