  1. What a truly FANTASTIC post! Love each and everyone of your boys and most impressed by their Diane Duke jumpers! (Shan’t be letting any of my Brood see this post as don’t want then getting any Halloween or jumper ideas!)
    Wishing you all over there a very happy Halloween! (Although being a Roman Catholic and so don’t celebrate this event I do buy a huge tin of Cadbury’s Celebrations and tip them into a black cauldron to treat all those little and not so little front door visitors)

    • Hi Kendal and thank you! I am glad you liked the post. So often our boys are left out and it is nice to feature them and to show them in vivid colors is especially nice!

      This time of year your brood would especially want a cardigan or two to help keep warm! Plus carving a pumpkin is fun for all. 🙂

      Halloween with trick or treaters visiting falls on the 31st this year. We buy treats every year and have yet to have one visitor out here on the farm. We are just too far out in the country. I still hope for one to come by though.I love to decorate and enjoy the Fall season. Great fun! 🙂 xxx

  2. Such gorgeous boys and so stylishly dressed, ready for autumn walks at the farm. I especially love Max and Finn’s poppy sweaters. 🙂 xxx

  3. Oh gosh, Ginger – did I do all those?! Thank you so much for bringing them all together. I have never seen so many of them all together in one place – they are only ever here in ones or twos. Tell your lads they look so handsome and a credit to you. Xx

    • Hi Diane and thank you! I will tell the boys how handsome they look and it was no small task getting them all together, dressed and getting them to stand still for the photo! I love your knits, as you know, and it is nice to have colorful and well made clothing for the boys too! 🙂 xxx

  4. What a beautiful and colourful post. How amazing to see all of these Diane mini Kaffe knits in one place, they all look so splendid together. I love that the boys haven’t shied away from pink either and Finn, I secretly love the colours of your cardi the best xxx

    • Thank you Janet. I am so glad you enjoyed the post. Once I laid out Diane’s knits to try on the boys, they all were so excited and they all wanted to wear a sweater no matter the color! So I grabbed the pink and purple sweaters too. Secretly my favorite colors are in Finn’s cardigan and I think that is why Finn is wearing it! ❤️ xxx

  5. What a fabulous group of beautifully dresses boys Ginger. I love every single one. Those gorgeous colours all together in the group photo would brighten any winters day.
    That’snot to say the the single shots don’t also.
    Diane’s Kaffe sweaters are wonderful and so full of colour and your handsome boys look perfect, every single one!
    Many thanks for sharing this vibrant post o this cold late autumn day, it will keep me warm and smiling every time I see it 🙂 xxxx

    • Hi Dee! Thank you for the lovely comments, I love the Kaffe sweaters too. Each one is a delight and putting them all together was great fun! The boys cooperated too and were so happy to go outdoors in the nice weather. We love the cooler autumn days. I hope you are enjoying your time post CnS and that your construction project is still moving along well. 🙂 xxx

  6. Oh my goodness ! Every single boy has a wonderful and unique sweater to wear and don ‘t they deserve it. You have a very handsome band of boys and, if they’re not listening…if they are please cover their ears…I think Max and Finn look the most handsome in theirs, just because I love those colours and they suit them so well :))

    • Thank you for the lovely comments and please excuse my tardy response. I do so appreciate you taking the time to share a thought or two. I seem to be chronically late on blog commenting in recent months. I am retiring from work next month and hopefully I will improve my timeliness in the new year.

      I love the colors too on Max and Finn and they look so handsome too. I love this time of year so very much. 🙂 xxx

  7. WOW what a gorgeous bunch of boys you have there Ginger, and all so beautifully dressed in their knitwear by Diane 🙂 I suspect that there won’t be any moans of “I’m cold mummy!” when the winter sets in where you live, not with their cosy jumpers and hats anyway!
    Big hugs xxx

    • Thank you so much Sharon and I am glad you enjoyed the post of my boys. Their knitwear is so wonderful and very warm too so you are correct, no moans about being cold from the boys on Cow Creek! 😉

      Please forgive my tardy response. I really hope to improve the timing of my blog commenting in the upcoming months. Time is flying by! Sending you very Big Hugs! 🙂 XXX
