Besides Short Sheeting???

I am so excited for Nelson to come home, making it impossible to even think straight.
I just looked at the clock and it tells me that he will leave Wellington in 5 and a half hours......
There is still a lot I would like to do but at the same time I don't need to do much. The mattress will be delivered this afternoon. Now to do something more than short sheet his bed.... he is on to that trick. He short sheet every split and new comp he had his whole mission. He also mentioned the short sheeting to us in his last letter. Anyway off to piddle and do for the weekend.

Fall or Winter?

When fall and Winter collide on my patio......because I don't have enough to do this week.

Thanksgiving Week Preperations

I miss getting the pies and goodies ready like I was last year at this time...but I am glad I am getting things ready for Nelsons return.

I wish I had a magic wand and would keep things looking company good all the time....then I would have more time to do all my messy projects. Oh well you can't have it all.

Semi- Normal

Life is getting back to normal....almost. The Musical closed last night. It was very good. Hayden did an excellent job, so did Jenna. As for the Production staff I think this was one of the better shows. Angela did a bang up job as Director and Producer. The Dancing was great thanks to Mom- Sheri, Melinda, Megan and Aaron.....I guess that gene didn't find me. I had a tone of compliments about the costume design....so I guess over all it was a great show....now on to the next one.

The painting is done in Nelson's new room.....but it now needs to be furnished. Gary and I went out looking to buy this afternoon......and we were successful! Now for the put together part. We still need a mattress and a few other things done before next Tuesday, but it will happen. Yes I said Tuesday. I want it all ready by Tuesday so don't have to worry about it on Wednesday.....the excitement is getting crazy!!!

I am extremely busy for the rest of this week, but then what is new. I am glad to be busy on one hand, on the other I wish I had time to do a bit more.......oh, well, life is what it is.

20 days!

We have received a pleasant surprise....Elder Call's travel plans have changed again. He will now arrive home on Wednesday Nov. 24, just in time for Turkey!


Here is a look at some of my projects and family activities for the past 2 weeks.

I made two hats, one for the musical and one for Captain A's Halloween costume.

Hayden and Megan were great sports supporting me in our ward Trunk or Treat. Our trunk theme was the movie UP. Hayden was Russell the Wilderness Explorer, Megan Kevin the Bird and Gary was Mr. Fedrickson

Trick or Treat- My Fav Treaters!
Alice, The Mad Hatter and the March Hare
I am so Glad that Laurie likes to do Halloween.

Dad and The Hatter chillin'
