Happy Thanksgiving...

...a bit early!

Two pumpkin pies and the raspberry salad are done and crossed off my list. Dave will make an apple pie later and I do believe there is fudge in our future.

My parents will be coming over to celebrate the day with us. I haven't celebrated Thanksgiving with them in about 15 years so I'm really looking forward to it.

I've been sewing lots. I have one more show in a week and a half. It's a big one so I've been trying to get a lot made. Thus the silence. I feel a bit guilty about getting on the computer when I have so much to do (as I type this I am remembering a load of laundry in the dryer). The dishwasher died and the washer is dying. (Here's hoping there are some great appliance sales on Friday!) Not the end of the world but extra work I didn't need right now.

So, have a happy day! Enjoy your turkey and pie and family! I'll blog more regularly once I get this show out of the way.

Election Day Tuesday

Go out and VOTE today!

I have never been so interested in how other states are voting as I am now. It's quite exciting to see so many people so involved. I think our country has been asleep for a looong time. We're waking up now!

So, get off the computer and go VOTE! Then, get back on the computer and support your favorite artist or crafter! ;)

The Day After

Well, Halloween has past. I can't (won't) stop eating candy. I want to start decorating for Christmas. (Don't worry, I'm not. Today.)

We had a lovely Halloween. My parents were with us for the whole day and we celebrated BIG! My folks have not had anything to do with Halloween since I moved out at 19. (Where did I come from?) Because of their dry spell and it being the first Halloween that Asher understood what was happening, we had a party. I put up MORE decorations, bought MORE candy and had LOTS of food. At 5:00, the kids walked around the block in a mini-parade behind a fire engine, we partied some more with the neighbors and, at 6:00 they were off!!!

Dave took both boys around a big part of the neighborhood first, then he and Asher retired while Nathanael and I searched for more sugar. Both boys had lots of fun and I think all of the grown-ups did, too. At 8:00, I ripped the candy from the boys little hands and tucked them into bed. Popcorn was made, assorted candy bars were gathered and "Sherlock" was watched. (Looooove "Sherlock".) I do believe we slept like the dead. All in all, good times.

Here are some pics of my guys.

Dave, Fireman Asher and Nathanael Fett.

Isn't he a precious, little bounty hunter?!

Can you here him saying "Cheese!"? And how about that chocolate around his mouth? Didn't you know that all firemen have chocolate around their mouth?

Have a wonderful day!
