I'm up north with family today (and this weekend) but I just wanted to pop in and wish all of you (in the States) a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving weekend! I'm planning on chatting up a storm, eating until I'm uncomfortable, walking it off at the Black Friday sales, cuddling my nephew until he won't have it any more, laughing until my stomach hurts, and getting a bit too crafty for my own good. How about you?

Here are just a couple of peeks at some of the crafty projects I have been working on from the Autumn RVA class:

It's another Elsie class, and this time she's teaming up with LA. This is the part where I ignore the world for a few hours while I check out the new blog, start a supply list and begin dreaming about how amazingly cute my world is going to be because of these wonderful ladies! I can't wait for January!
(Wonder what happened to the last Elsie class I took? It just finished up and I do have a few photos to share, but.....most of the projects are TOP SECRET as they are going to be given as Christmas gifts.)

This has been such an amazing week.
The leaves are absolutely beautiful, the air is crisp.
The long sleeves and sweaters are out and oh so comfy.
Rex started his new job Monday morning, and has had such a great time getting to know his role, workplace and the people he works with.
Tonight we celebrated his birthday, just the two of us, laughing, joking, and answering birthday calls from friends and family.

Yesterday we celebrated Halloween by making White Chicken Chili, Hot Cider and a Pumpkin Torte so today I started my day with really yummmy leftovers. That looks like a really large piece I know, but if you've ever had a piece of this pumpkin torte, you know it's just the right size!
After a lazy morning enjoying the extra hour from Daylight Savings, it was off to Target for a birthday card and some Halloween bargain shopping. Besides finding three pair of cute socks, I found some gifts to put away for Christmas.
Then we headed to Flint to celebrate Aunt Pat's birthday. Rex got this REALLY fun shirt from Pat for his birthday (which we will be celebrating on Friday :).
Check out the AWESOME costume that Rex and Josie made me! Rex made the suit and Jo made the cool horned hood. What do you think? I loved being MAX for the day, and the kids seemed to like it too. This costume is going to get a lot of use over the next few years!
