The Perfect Tree





Birthdays!

November is a very busy month for our little family. Both my step-kids have birthdays in November, as well as my sister and grandmother just to name a few. For the latter two I got fabulous scarves and mini umbrellas. For A & D, it was a little more elaborate...


There were banners...





And cakes...





And presents...





Most (all but the #10 cake) made my illustrious husband Mike. He is fabulous. Lucky us...

Thanksgiving



Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. There's no present pressure (except the nagging thought that Christmas is just around the corder), just delicious food, family, usually cold weather, and a raging fire (my dad doesn't do small fire)... it's wonderful! This year was especially wonderful because not only were there two adorable mobile little ones to enjoy it with, but most of our family came as well! So many in fact, that we had to cart all the food up to my dad's cabinet shop and set up a long line of tables up there to eat dinner. Cold, but honestly I didn't really notice because of the wonderful food and company.
