Look what I got!

I asked for a floss tag thru MAW group, and this is what I got! It's super sweet and thank you to Melissa for granting my second wish!

My Reindeer exchange is ready to go in the mail tomorrow! I'm very excited about it! I sure hope my partner likes it! I can't wait to show everyone what I have made!

Can't believe tomorrow is Dec.1st!

Will post more tomorrow!

Pictures of what's been up!

We had a Rock A Thon on Friday night, that's where the kids get to spend the night at the school and have a blast. Jacob had fun, I managed to stay awake until 3am, after that I woke up at 6:30 to start cleaning up. Parents had to pick kids up by 7am. The girls enjoyed doing Jacob's hair.

Look what Kendra made for me! It is awesome Kendra! Right on with the uniform colors too! Jacob wants to take it to school to show it off! Thanks so much for this sweet gift!

I started on Edgar's Quaker RR, not much done, I need to send off Rowyn's to Valerie. I don't want to overwhelm her, as she already has 2 I think. We got off track when a stitcher bailed out on us and Valerie has agreed to take her spot.

Look at the cute little Christmas birds I'm working on! I'll try my best to have one of them assembled by the end of this week.

It's Monday and we are having our annual Thanksgiving dinners at the school starting tomorrow. We will serve Thanksgiving food for three days! Just today, I opened up 4 cases of cranberry sauce! Which means 24 long pans ready to serve!

Hope everyone has a great day!

I must show off my sparklies!

John knows that I love garnets and he bought my a new ring plus some new earrings from Jareds. It's a nice jewelry store out here. The ring was too big, so last night we dropped it off at the jewelry store while we went out to eat at Red Lobster. We were gonna go to Longhorns, but the wait was 75 minutes. I just could not wait that long to eat! I was hungry!

Today has been lazy. I visited my Momma while John and Jason unloaded firewood for my parents! I'm glad we are able to help provide them firewood, they won't have to buy any we hope.

I'm assembling Elizabeth's Harvest/Thanksgiving ornie tonight. I plan to mail it Monday! She sent me the cutest owl ornie. It's super sweet. John's Dad loved owls.

I have almost finished my Reindeer exchange! So no pictures of that one yet!

Christmas is coming quickly! My brother Patrick and my sister in law Cathy went Christmas shopping today! Hope for us to go next weekend or later.

Well, here's hoping everyone has a safe weekend!

Halloween Practice Band Pictures

We let the band members dress up in their costumes for practice. It is always fun to see what these kids come up with. Jacob re-created the bad guy from Batman. he made the mask from burlap, he cut and stitched it and then he coffee bean dyed it. He did a great job I think.

I know I don't post alot about Jason, but I will today. He is in Stagecraft at school and they are doing the play The Crucible. They had a competition last week with the play, but they didn't place. So everyone was bummed. Jason is part of the crew that built the set. We are gonna go and see the set this week. Jason is such a different personality then his brother, Jason is more subdued and quiet, I worry because he doesn't seem happy. But he is almost 19, he's becoming a man and not the little boy who needs his momma. How sad for me.

We voted! I'm hoping that McCain can pull a victory. Times have shown us that when a Democrat is in office, the construction field is weak, no jobs for John. But since the Republicans are in office, work has been strong for John. I'm hoping that John will still have a job in December.

I am hoping to have Rowyn's RR finished tonight! Then I will work on assembling my Thanksgiving exchange ornie! I plan to have it ready to go out in the mail by this weekend.

John and I will share our 21 wedding anniversary on Nov. 7th. Shhhhhh ! I'm hoping for jewelry!

I won't be too disappointed if I don't, but it has been more than 3 years since I've received any sparkly goodness! hahahaha

I'm feeling better, but my doctor thinks that maybe I am experiencing a RA/PsA flare. So I'm taking my meds, but still feel tired. I did talk openly to my boss about my condition and she was very helpful and concerned. Being the main cashier has helped. I'm hoping to become the head cashier when the other lady retires.

Well, I want to stitch so I'll leave you with a smile and a hug for all who waited in line to vote! I waited 2 hours and twenty minutes! Hope it was worth it!

Where has Donna been?

Well, best laid plans always backfire on me. I knew Halloween was gonna be busy, especially with an away football game, trick or treaters, the whole nine yards. I chaperone usually 27 kids on Bus 2, they are the best bunch of kids, so I spent some money and made up goody bags to give out after the football game. I even bought little skull rings and playdough. I had more fun putting these goody bags together. I couldn't wait to pass out the treat bags. I wanted to be super mom again. Guess what? OMGosh, I started feeling really bad on the bus ride to Berkmar, by the time we got to the school, lets just say, I thought I was gonna die.
I laid down on the bleachers, covered up with a blanket and tried not to throw up. I made it to halftime, then my friend Karen decided it was time for me to go home. I missed giving out my candy treat bags, I was bummed. Got home just in time to make it to the bathroom. That was 10:30pm Friday night. Went straight to bed, woke up Sunday morning at 7:30am. My husband has teased me for sleeping more than 30 hours. How do I feel? Alittle better, but I feel like a truck hit me. My body aches, but at least the stomach is better. Yea!!!!
I don't know what I got, but it hit me fast and hard. I just hope nobody else gets it!
No stitching to show. I will take pictures of Rowyn's RR later today. I can't believe it's November already. Christmas will be here before I know it!
Hoping everyone had a safe Halloween!
