Been busy...

The girls have both been under the weather with respiratory "gunk". Emma actually missed a couple of days of school and by Friday evening, both were ready for blankets and a good movie. We pulled out Elf and made hot chocolate.

For anyone who is curious, all the Halloween decorations are officially put away. Not a single creature or orange light to be found anywhere. I'm always amazed at how much work it is to set-up and take-down, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I'll be sending off a check for $200 dollars to Pearl River Outreach this week. Thank you to all that donated. Every little bit helps.

On Saturday, my sister and I helped my parents start moving their belongings from their funeral home residence to their new home. Chris kept our germy girls home.

Although they aren't retiring, they are moving out of their funeral business. Their new home is just gorgeous. They haven't had a real house with a real yard for many many years. I can't wait to show interior shots...especially my mother's art studio. All my crafting takes place on my kitchen island. My mother actually has a whole room devoted to quilting, sewing, painting, stained glass making, miniature making, basket weaving, beading, gluing..etc. I'm so happy for them both.

Speaking of crafting, I dug out my Christmas crafting supplies this afternoon. I just took a peek inside my box. I didn't start anything, but it's never too early to start planning. I can't wait to try out a few new projects with the girls.

Have a wonderful week. Stay healthy.

You never cease to amaze me girl! I wish I had your energy!!
Hope the girls are feeling better soon!
Hugs, Jill

(P.S. So, were you raised in the funeral home? I dated a guy-way back when!- who was raised in one, heck still living there when home from school, it was interesting....)

Awesome for your parents to be able to retire in such a pretty house--and the craft room sounds amazing. :)

Hope the girls are feeling better. Doug and I each had surgery in October. Doug had a hip replacemnt and I had an emergency gall bladder removal. Fun...fun! :-) I'm back to work after a couple of weeks.

Your crafting energy is amazing to me! Enjoy! Hu to Chris.
