Did you have a good one?
I have finally gotten things worked out for the time being. I needed some more photo storage and I've solved that problem for the moment. (Have you ever made a Blurb book? http://www.blurb.com/ It is the coolest! I'll gush more about that another day.) We're settling into our new place and it's starting to feel like home. We have much to be thankful for as it was bitterly cold and we were toasty and warm.
We got snow for Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving Morning I was working on a sewing project and my dearest had to work. The kids had to be in the same room with me and needed something to do besides sit on my lap and fight over who was going to help me sew. So I let Tiny take a pin for a minute. She'd take it over to a pillow I'd just made her Dad and stick it in and then Mowg would bring it to me and we'd start over. Well it wasn't long before she took exception to this plan. So I just gave them the whole box of pins with strict instructions not to lose any in the bed. As a result they made our Thanksgiving Porcupine! Happy Mom. Happy Kids. Incidentally isn't that a cool pillow? It's a neck pillow. They're easy to make and help your neck relax.

That's how it was for me.
