Lauren and Abigail living it up keeping Mark and Charles on their toes pulling them around the lake and taking them horseback riding

In other news this crazy hat making machine has found its way to our house. It is electric and goes around a little faster than I am comfortable with.  Steve tried to slow it down with a Rheostat switch.  Basically it slowed it 15 percent…. kinda like going from 50 to 40 miles an hour.  What is the difference between 40 or 50 when your fingers are involved.  So I am slowly and carefully learning how to make it work

Here is the first hat off the machine.  I am going to go find fleece and line the hats with fleece for softness.  Stay tuned to see more coming off Gertie the Hat Machine
