Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!!
I'm still here, my computer crashed a few months ago and we're borrowing one that doesn't have a camera card reader. I need to get one or put all 500 pictures I have on a CD. Hopefully soon so I can post all my backlogged posts and pictures!
Thanks to my secret sister for the last few month's swaps. Thanks to Olde Lady Morgan and the ornie swap. I love all my ornaments!
I need to get cracking on what I'm making for Thanksgiving dinner. Have a wonderful day!

Beautiful fall morning at Antioch park for a nature hike to find items for our nature craft.

Another beautiful fall day this time at Wyandotte County Lake for a nature class with F.L. Schlalge Library. I love how the water looks with the sun shining on it.

We had a fun Halloween the weather was beautiful, no coats needed. We hit a few trunk or treats and than a couple neighborhoods, with a stop at Grandpa and Grandmas house and a final stop at Chipotle's for the Booritio special they do every year.

Amy was Snow White, Jaime a mummy and Melissa wore her bathrobe, pj's and carried Clifford.
Let me tell you about Jaime's costume. Three attempts to make one costume, first we started with too little pants, they fit until I sewed the muslin on the pants, found another pair apparently I don't catch on fast,..... final attempt worked and looked pretty good. But wait the top part was a black zip up hoodie, that turned out too small, ended up cutting the sweat shirt apart and sewing it onto a white t-shirt, this mama is bound and determined or just crazy.
