Savoring Moments!

I love to savor life's moments with this little one.
These days don't last long enough for me.

Picking up the leaves, making piles...Crunch! Crunch! Crunch!

Tumbling through the rustling leaves with laughter echoing behind.
The cool brisk autumn days are calling us to play outside.

The warmth of the fireplace can be felt as he sits down and plays with his Lego blocks.
I think he loves patterns and numbers.

"Oma... Can we make apple pie?"
"You peel the apples, and I'll make the pie."

He thrust every effort into peeling the apples.

He knew where to get more...
While he was busy peeling...I was busy making perishky.

 His eyes were peeled on the timer, and beaming, and counting minutes and seconds,
just waiting for the end result.

Find those little hands and savor a moment.
How long can I hold onto it?

Artists and photographers are taught to observe the world through
they eyes of a child.
"Every child is an artist," said Pablo Picasso.
"The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up."


  1. You combined some of my favorite things in one outing- time with the grands, fall, and baked apples! Nice.

  2. What a wonderful day you must have had, and you illustrated it so beautifully. These times are so precious - it's lovely to see how you treasure them.

  3. I'm coming to sample...your apple perischky! How fun to have such reliable kitchen help.

    Great fall pic's. Did you roll in the leaves as well?

  4. What wonderful enjoyment of fall your camera captured with your grandson Marg! Love it!

  5. What awesome pics of your little guy playing! You have captured some great moments that will lead to good memories! Good post!

  6. Those pictures are so cute! At first I thought you were supposed to peel and he was going to bake. Glad it all worked out! Perfect!

  7. I can tell that he is the apple of your eye! What fun and what a wonderful way to create great memories (and good perishky too).

  8. What beautiful fall colours in your yard - how you must be enjoying them. And that grandson - you were able to show us his personality so well through your pictures. I love the way you involve your g'boys in so many activities. They will always remember these days.
