    Look at all those hats! Just watched a news story this morning where a city locally is hanging them on fences and light poles with “take me, I’m not lost” signs for people in need. Wrapping paper is sometimes more fun than the gift, huh 😉 Hope your weekend has been wonderful so far.

    I came from my weekly Dom fix! Wasn’t he a delighted boy when that gift wrap rolled and rolled !!! 😀 I love your hat project, and treats for troops– that is wonderful! Enjoy this Christmas. I know that little boy is going to make it super special this year!!!

  3. Such a great liar of loves. Dominic and wrapping paper; complete fascination and enjoyment for us, and him!

  4. So many great things to love. All the donating to worthy causes is wonderful. Knitting like that…what a hobby. I’m surprised about the Stones, Roseanne. They are my generation…old, LOL. Your enjoyment of Dominic just keeps on growing!

  5. It’s wonderful you and Sue are able to distribute the hand knitted hats to keep little heads warm! And share the candy too for a good cause. What a generous and craft “B” you are!!! lol😂

    At this time of year especially, it is so great to see the hats and candy donations. The Rolling Stones, eh? Can you believe they are still playing, much less touring? The paper and Dominic reminds me of a story our Dad used to tell us – that as little kids we were more interested in playing with the boxes than the toys that came in them! Interesting, right?

    Oh your likes and charities are so awesome! Dominick and bubble wrap…..I am waiting.

    There’s my fix for the week! Dominic, your mind matches mine…off to get out the wrapping paper right now…

  9. Those are serious bags of hats! LOL – I was given those same socks.

    Dom and Milo would be scrambling to see who got the paper first! I like the idea of sending candy to charities! And the hats too. As to Mick… his loss!

    Ooh Roseanne! Dom on the crinkly wrapping paper just makes me giggle! What a hoot! I’m sorry about the rolling stones tickets- I probably wouldn’t have waited for 2000 people either though. That hat outreach is just amazing! What a great thing to do and so cool to be able to redistribute them from an area they probably aren’t too useful to an area where they are!!!

    Hello Roseanne, How wonderful about the hats being made and donated! Also, great donations for the Candy! I know a few enlisted people in the Military and they say everyone who gets any type of box of goodies from home that they all get excited and they try and share as much as possible. Another great donation we have found out is they also love Movies of any kind it helps them all connect with home and families/friends! We enjoy sending very old movies because we were told that very few people have seen these movies and no matter how bad the movie is they still enjoy watching them! Everything that you shared today was great to read and see the photos. Thank you for sharing and have a spectacular day!

  13. I love the bags of hats! Kudos to those knitters – and what a great idea to take them to the schools where you and Sue work! And Dominic with the wrapping paper – what fun! I still remember my son on his 1st birthday loving the wrapping paper more than anything else. Happy Thursday, Roseanne!

    How wonderful for those ladies to make the hats and for you to distribute them. You will be blessed. Lots of good things in this post. Blessings,

    I love that you are lighting the world! What generosity those ladies have, and the candy collection! Some grateful people. definitely! A quilt pattern, yes, and modern. Want my drawer full of triangles to play? I’ll even pay postage! =) Send me a baby who reads! =) Not exactly what Reader’s Digest had in mind, I’m sure. LOL He is so cute, even stomping the wrapping paper – your gifts will be slightly wrinkled this year, but who cares?

    My dog loves the empty wrapping paper tube. He destroys it and has such fun. The younger brother has no clue why this is fun, but then, he enjoys tearing up paper from the trash, so I guess they both have their quirks?

    What a sweet story about the lady who knits a hat a day…wow! Since I have no idea how to knit, this totally impresses me. Donating them to children near you is wonderful. This was a great “I Love Thursday” post!

    Great charities to give the hats. Our guild, around this time each year, takes a truck load of gloves, coats, socks and shoes to a very, very poor area here in AL where the kids don’t have shoes and socks in the winter so they miss school often. We work with a nun who works the area. It’s hard to believe that occurs so close to home. We are so blessed but so many don’t realize that. These children are so appreciative and excited when the ladies show up. Love the socks!! Such fun with Dominic!

  19. Hats — what a cool thing to do! So you need to get the book “Caps for Sale” and read it to little D. It’s a classic. And wait – Sue works at 5 different schools? What? How? Those socks make me chuckle, and I’m sorry you can’t get no satisfaction from Mick & the boys. I will, however, think of you rockin’ out while you are quilting; you can get a ton of satisfaction from that! Hahaha.

  20. Aww…what a joy watching Dominic learn something new! The hat connection is a wonderful blessing! Happy Thursday!

    How cool is that the hats you give out come from way down south! Awesome socks, hehe. I love seeing little kids discovering new things.

    Oh, I love watching babies make a game out of whatever is at hand — wrapping paper as a toy — I love it. And your hat connection…what a lovely gifting opportunity!
