Fall Fun!!!

Well, the kid's Aunt Cathie had them over Saturday for a day full of Halloween fun, crafts, goodies, and lots of sugar!! We all had such a great time and always love seeing our Aunt Cathie! Thank you for the fabulous day!
Jesse is working on building an African Tongue Drum for his music class project. He is to make a musical instrument and thanks to Grandpa, we have lots of wood and tools at our disposal! Jesse really shows an interest in woodworking, and grandpa loves showing Jesse new skills. Here is Jesse sanding the top of the drum.

Jesse using the table saw (Grandpa helped also......such a big blade!)

Will post the final product very soon!
