Thanksgiving Weekend

I have been so thankful to have a family to celebrate all of life's experiences with. This year was special because my mom and I were
able to go visit my brother and his family in Texas. I had a lot of fun chatting and cooking with my sister-in-law, catching up with my brother, laughing with my nephew and acting like an utter goofball for my great-nephew. While we were visiting we made it a goal to tackle my nephew's bedroom. It needed to be painted and decorated. As usual we had some hiccups and weren't able to get it all done, but I did manage to snap a picture of one of the projects my creative sister-in-law came up with. She decided to use one of the drums from a set that my nephew never uses and make a side table. To amp up the interest we printed off several pictures of things that my nephew is interested
in and decoupage them on top of the drum. All it needs now is a nice piece of plexiglass to go over it. My brother is going to have a machine shop cut and shape the plexiglass to fit snuggly inside of the rim to create a nice waterproof table top.

Computer Died

I am not going to be able to post much on my blog for a bit. My computer chose an inopportune time to completely crash! I will try to post from time to time via my iPad.

Halloween Success!

Halloween this year was the best one we have had in awhile despite the fact that my hubby has been dealing with some health issues.  I was pleased with how the decorations turned out and the kids loved the house!

We had tons of kids stop by with costumes ranging from zombies to Pippi Longstocking.  Our pups even got into the Halloween spirit this year probably to make up for the fact that we don't yet have children compounded with the fact that our Corgi, Sadie actually likes to get dressed up.

Sadie was a cheerleader this year and she would not look up at the camera. Bernie my pumpkin is a lot older and was more compliant in the picture taking process (treats helped a lot too!) I hope everyone else had a fun Halloween too! Now I am starting to get my Fall decorations out in preparation for Thanksgiving.  I can't believe that Christmas is only 7 weeks away! YIKES!
