A Picture from my photo journal~
Trees lit up in Pittsburgh
We had a great girls day out in the city!
Today I picked up The Perfect Christmas and couldn't put it down. I finished it in one day. It was an easy read with lots of laughs. It's a great Christmas read, filled with the true meaning of Christmas....love.
Here's a description from the author's site:
FOR TODAY...November 16th
Outside my window... the sun is shining in the blue skies. It's very warm for mid-November
I am thankful for...my husband and his never-ending love for me and our children.
I am wearing... a pink top with sparkly snowflakes, black slacks and shoes.
I am remembering... last Christmas.
I am going... to take ds to the plastic surgeon today about some mole removal.
I am reading...
I am hoping...that everything works out for us with our new home.
On my mind...Annie from MHH. Praying for her health.
From the learning rooms... at school, Native Americans and Pilgrims.
I am noticing that... sometimes God may not answer our prayers as we want them to be answered, but in the way that he sees as best for us.
Pondering these words...If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice. ~Meister Eckhart
From the kitchen... apple dumplings for dessert, Quick Chicken Soup and Grilled Cheese for dinner.
Around the house... doing laundry and hoping to make it outside to rake some leaves.
One of my favorite things~ knitting gifts for others.

In honor of Veteran's Day our school district hosts a Veteran's Day Breakfast for local veterans. Yesterday, we had over 300 veterans attend the breakfast and program. DS was part of the program, representing the Army. The kids did a fantastic job. The Veterans had a great time, too. In the evening, ds and the other students who participated in the program were presented with certificates of appreciation by the school board. We're very proud of our son!

I made these brownies for family and friends this week. The recipe was from Betty Crocker. I used a different brand of brownie mix, but they were still delicious and well received. I think they would be great for Valentine's Day, using red food coloring instead of orange.
We had a nice Halloween. DD and I made a dinner of Mummy Face Pizzas and Ghoulish (Chicken) Fingers with Blood (ketchup) for dipping. After dinner, we went Trick-or-Treating for about an hour. Then, we came home and passed out treats to our treaters. The kids had a great day!
