My Texan Friends!!

I have two special friends that live in the big state of Texas. Ginger and Gracelyn. Are those not the prettiest names! Now I have never met these little Southern Ladies in person but I have seen many pictures of them and they are prettier than their names. We have a lot in common. We all three like tea, we love the books and the TV show "Little House on the Prairie", we love to grow pumpkins, we love dolls especially when our Mama's make clothes for them so we can dress them up! I could go on & on! Recently I asked them if I could come over and play with them because their Mama just made them some new dresses for their dolls. I was so surprised to get such a BIG and BEAUTIFUL invitation from them! Oh I want to come over & play soooo bad but we live very far apart. The next best thing to being there is knowing that they want me to come!! I am honored!! Well I just could not contain my excitement over my invitations from Ginger and Gracelyn! I have TWO friends in Texas!!! Aint that neat!! Thank you girls SOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!! What beautiful invitations!! Oh I hope that one day we CAN play together!! Above are some pictures I thought they would like. A baby pumpkin and my pumpkin patch. The Dolls my Mama made for me when I was a little girl. Two box turtles and a baby bunny Danny found here on the farm. I hope you enjoy Girls!! Thank you again my friends!!

Dear Miss Tina, thank you so much for the pictures and the special writing for us. We wish you could come over some time and we will wait until you can. We really like your pumpkin patch, dolls and the bunny. We couldn't see the turtles but that's okay. Does the bunny have a name? You are a good friend. Love, Ginger and Gracelyn

Hi Ginger & Gracelyn! I'm sorry you couldn't see the turtles. Danny calls the bunny "Scat Gear"! Have you ever heard of such a name?! When someone or something is running really fast, instead of high gear, we call it SCAT GEAR! This bunny can jump high & run faster than you can blink! So he is named "Scat Gear"! I wish you two could come see him! I am so glad I have such sweet and pretty little Southern ladies that I can call my friends! Lets keep in touch!!
Love yall
Tina

Ohhh, a baby bunny! Ginger and Gracie, he looks kind of like my bunny, Niblet, doesn't he?

Love the dolls too, Tina. Your mom is so special to have made them for you. What keepsakes!

One of my favourite animals is turtles. I had one as a pet when I was a little girl.

And of course, who doesn't love pumpking pie? Is that what you'll make from those pumpkins, Tina?

Love the turtles tina and the bunny is so cute. Your mama is very talented to have made those dolls. I made a Raggy Ann once when I was in high school, she was about 2 feet tall and it took me a good while to make her, we had to share sewing machines. I loved her but ended up giving her to my neice.

Tina, the girls finally saw the box turtle picture last night and were really happy. They love the name Scat Gear!! Gracelyn said she was going to name one of her stuffed bunnies the same name. LOL.

Sandra, the girls said the bunny looks like a small Niblet!! They wondered if they were family. LOL.
