It's been a few weeks since my last post. Hubby & I went to Vegas for a convention that his work sent him to. We had a great time. It was so nice to be able to get a week away from life & relax a little! Bob (a co-worker of Hubby's) & his wife also came along. It was nice to get to spend the week with them & to get to know them better! ( I got to see Ka Cirque de Soliel. It was amazing!!!)
I go in for surgery tomorrow at 10:30. It's a scope so I'm supposed to be back to normal activities in a couple of days. Not sure if Mom & I are going to do Black Friday but I'm hoping to go for at least a little bit. It is always a lot of fun.
The kids both made honor roll last grading period! I am so proud of them & the hard work they put into it.

Now onto cross stitch. I got the bottom part of ToT Fairy done & am working on the swirls at the bottom of the pattern. I finished my first ornament & am working on the second. On is for the Buckeye Stitcher ornie exchange & the other is for the Blueberry Hill Christmas party.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Thursday November 5,2009

It's been a long week so far. I was feeling low yesterday as Hubby was out of town on my birthday. But he sent me some very beautiful flowers; roses & lilies. My favorites!
I got more done on ToT Fairy for the sal. I am having a blast on her & don't want to put her down! I'm am bummed about next week though as I won't get to stitch on her.
Not sure if I'm going to get a chance to post next week as Hubby & I are going to Vegas!!! Hubby's work is sending him to a seminar/classes (?) for the week. Since work is paying for the seminar, hotel, food & his class all we had to pay was for the air fare for me to go along. I am so excited! I have everything pack & ready to go. Just need for him to get home from where work sent him this week so I can wash & pack his stuff. I will post again as soon as I can.

Monday November 2, 2009

The kids had a great time over the Halloween weekend. Maria had her school party & parade. She went as a witch. I helped out at her class. I love seeing the kids (& teachers costumes)! One of the teachers went as Max from Where the Wild Things Are. Paul went to school as a soldier. They had a school dance during the day & from what he said he had a blast.

On Halloween Hubby took Maria around the neighborhood & Paul went with a bunch of friends. I stayed at the house to hand out candy. We only got a couple of kids down the street but the other streets were packed. We had a couple of lucky kids though as we gave out half bags of candy to those kids so we wouldn't have so much left over.
Sunday Hubby left for another work trip to SC. Hopefully his work will have these problems fixed soon & he can stay home for awhile.

Onto cross stitching: I finished up pumpkin on Boo Club & am now catching up the border.
I started working on my ornaments for some exchanges I'm in.
