First it's a big, scary day for me. In my newsletter today I shared a whole lot of changes that are coming. One of them is that in 2016, year of creative habits will be a course. Get all the details about that here and please ask me if you have any questions about it.
Oh man it was week! I'm learning a lot doing these events/shows this year but having them on back-to-back weekends is a whole lot of work! Throw in Thanksgiving and I can't even tell you what day of the week it is. I did a terrible job taking a photos again and I was not even close to taking one per day. I'll just share what I have...
This was Eli's fortune. That has got to be one of the lamest ones ever. I guess it beats the times that Thad's fortune cookie was empty.
Clara requested cinnamon rolls for Thanksgiving. They take a long time but are definitely worth it. These about jumped out of the pan.
He made most of Thanksgiving dinner this year. The turkey looked awesome, sorry that I didn't take a photo. What is more handsome than a guy who cooks?!
Our thanksgiving tradition is to do the "big" crossword puzzle from the newspaper while we watch football. It's my very favorite tradition and I love that the kids are getting old enough to help with the puzzle.
She used her own money to buy this game called Pop the Pig. She loves it! She plays it alone and then she asks one of us to play and then she plays alone again.
Friday we went bowling with family. It was a really great time, in a really great retro bowling alley. I met Thad in a bowling alley so they are sort of a special place for us, which is just as weird as it sounds and totally fits us. :)
Post bowling. She's calling her shot.
And of course, video games. This kid will be turning 10 soon. Double Digits! I cannot believe it.
Saturday I spent the day at the first Queen City Craft Show. I am so proud of my friends Summer, Brittany, and Kendra. They worked so hard on this and it was amazing! This show made me so happy to live in Springfield surrounded by such talented, creative, and kind people. Speaking of kind people, they also raised $2000 for Rescue One. Check out the Faces in the Crowd, the News-Leader article, and Summer on TV! (hey that's me in the background there too!) :)
Sunday, Thad and I got to go to the Chiefs game. I am a HUGE fan and I was so excited. We haven't been in several years. The weather was pretty bad, about 35 degree and raining. As we got to our seats, we discovered that we were under the overhang! YES! We stayed dried and the Chiefs won. Huzzah!
