Buster asked me to knit him a bear out of this adorable book I bought so I started it last night...had to get out my How to Knit book a few times since it's been over a year since I last knit. I forgot how much I like to do it...maybe I'll have to try my hand at socks next!

Tom and I put up the Christmast lights today...wanted to get it done before the cold weather sets in!

We did a little Christmas shopping and a little Christmas crafting today...I just wish we'd get some snow.

One little, two little, three little turkeys...getting the table settings ready for tomorrow!

Aaahhh....I'll be going back to see it again tomorrow. I know, I know, total nerd but New Moon is my favorite of the four, read it twice...and I'm pleased to say I liked the movie just as much as the book. Only disappointment was it was only 2 hours long, would have really liked to see more wolf action. I can honestly say, Edward didn't even need to be in the movie AT ALL. Forget the Cullens...hello Quileutes! And...I have a total girl crush on Victoria!

This is not what I had intended to use for my pic of the day but it gets dark here between 4:30 and 5:00 so pics never turn out good in the evening (not that mine would turn out in the bright sunlight either)...these are one of the many projects I worked on today.

Today was a "glitter jitter's" day!

Sebastian lost another tooth...the one on the opposite side is ready to come out also so the tooth fairy is going to be a regular visitor at our house.

A little horsing around...

Me and my "big brother"...

Tom took the boys to Game Stop...looks like they both scored a new game!

Tom and I spent all morning doing yard work...while Buster and the dogs played.

A little football in the house...complete with helmets. Good thing I don't have a bazillion antiques sitting around!

Went antiquing in St. Paul over my lunch hour (or should I say lunch "hour and a half") and found a big bag of little plastic Christmas figures...Frosty is my favorite.

My favorite store in Stillwater had their "annual holiday soiree" today...everything in the store was 20% off...lots of great vintage Christmas items! One of my Christmas traditions is to buy the kids a new ornament each year so when they have a home of their own they can pack up all their ornaments and hang them on their own tree (and eventually pass them along to their children)...I got this cute little owl for Shelby (I hope she doesn't follow my blog!)

Getting my 25 days of christmas book ready to go...

Time to start working on Christmas wish lists...I wonder if Sebastian is on Santa's nice list.

Tom and Sebastian are back from Michigan...with souvenirs.

Shelby came home (again) for the I get to make the 2 hour round-trip to bring her back to campus. Lucky me!

Saturday, November 7, 2009


Took some time out from my "crafting" for my workout...then the dogs' workout, Trixie fetched until we lost her ball in the camouflage of the leaves.

I was lucky enough to get to watch Matt (and the East Ridge Raptors) bowl again, he got quite a few strikes but, of course, I didn't capture any on film!

Double Trouble

Busy working on a few things for my Etsy idea what to take a picture of today so this is what you get!

Remember these Lisa? We used to make sequin ornaments somewhat like this when we were kids. I found these at an estate sale (with the Leewards price tag still on them)...Sebastian can't wait to start creating.
