Thanksgiving Fun

Cora and Olive sporting whipped cream mustaches!  Our silly girls!  We had  a great time visiting and eating.  So happy to be together with family over the holidays.

New TV Show

One of my favorite new TV shows this fall is "Blue Bloods".  Very well written and really good acting.  It is on Fridays at 9 p.m. CST.  Doesn't hurt that Tom Selleck is on the show either!

Hope you have a great Thanksgiving.  It is hard to believe it is that time of year already.  We have had unseasonably warm weather, so it feels like it is still September.  Our family has so very much to be thankful for this year.  Good health, good jobs, good friends, loving family and a loving Savior.

Our family will be working at our church's Annual Community Thanksgiving on Thursday and an extended family gathering on Friday. 

Galatians 6:9
Do not get tired of doing what is good. Don't get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time.

Kindle...yes... a Kindle!  This is one of my birthday presents.  I love new technology so this is right up my alley.  My birthday was earlier in the month, so I have been using this for the last couple of weeks and really enjoying it.  I have downloaded several free books and also bought one new release.  My first book to buy was George Bush's new book, "Decision Point".  You can buy books, newspapers, magazines and blogs.  Also you can download games.  I have a game similar to scrabble that I have been really enjoying.

I also received this really nice cover with a light - which is really handy at bedtime. 

Maybe its not so bad to get older after all -- except of course, the aches and pains part.

Fair Trade Sale Completed

What a fun weekend.  So many vendors and so many products.  The jewelry to the left is from Back to Africa which I helped sell as well as a new friend.  Beautiful creations from Kenya.

Another vendor was Amani Ya Juu from Nairobi Kenya.  I visited this group while I was in Kenya.  My daughter sold their products.  Beautiful bowls, napkins, oven mitts, and many other items.

There were approximately 20 tables covered with beautiful items from around the world.  Many people came and did early Christmas shopping.  My daughter is planning to make this an annual event. 

Other vendors included at the sale were Bead for Life, Plowshare, Forai and handmade dolls made by my daughter's friend for Muñecas for Hope.
