Happy Exactly One Month Til Christmas!!

Yeah I'm excited.
So Thanksgiving was great for Nick and I. This year we went to The Cellar's (a restaurant in Geneseo) and had their Thanksgiving Dinner. It was decent. Not the best but good enough. Even better that I didn't have to cook the whole thing my self. We sat around all day watching tv, went out for dinner, and watched a movie that we had rented. Good times had by us. This was a picture of the sunset on Thanksgiving night. It was super cool. I hope everyone else had a great Thanksgiving.

Attention all you crafty people out there!

The Orphan Foundation of America is sponsoring or whatever their Red Scarf Project. What they do is around Valentine's Day they send out care packages to their scholarship recipents (I am an OFA Alum if you will) and they include a red scarf in with it. Its supposed to be handmade and because these college kids don't have families (in many cases) they get something that shows that they are loved. I loved receiving the OFA packages. It was really cool to get them so Crocheters and Knitters...the challenge is to create a red scarf (or more depending on how ambitious you are) and send it to the OFA for their care packages. If the link up top didn't work for you then here are the rules and info from the OFA website.

Love to knit, crochet or know someone who does? Send warmth and encouragement to America’s college-bound foster youth. OFA needs thousands of handmade scarves to put in our Valentine Care Packages to these parentless youth attending college on their own. Your handiwork will truly be the personal touch in these packages and bring students the encouragement they need to move forward and graduate to a brighter future. For over 25 years, OFA has provided funding and family-like support to foster youth in transition. Scarf guidelines: Size: approximately 60” long and 5” to 8” wide. Scarves should be long enough to be wrapped around the neck with tails long enough to be tied in the front.
Style: Think unisex collegiate. Fringe optional. Should drape, tie easily and be soft.
Color: Red! This could mean burgundy, cherry, russet, red stripes with other colors, multicolor hues including red. Other unisex colors, including black, navy, gray, teal, olive or gold, are also welcome.
Finished & tagged: Yarn ends securely sewn in. For the personal touch, attach a tag saying “Handmade for You” with your first name, city, and group affiliation, if any. Donors have also included washing instructions, messages of encouragement, and gift cards/burger bucks/book of stamps. Thank you! Your scarf may be the first handmade gift a young man or woman has ever received. Your efforts will truly be appreciated! Mail to (January Only): Orphan Foundation of America Red Scarf Project
21351 Gentry Drive, Unit 130
Sterling, VA 20166 Scarves are accepted throughout the month of January ONLY due to limited/temporary storage capacity.

Please don't call PETA

This is how Savannah's Halloween went. It was fun. Nick and I sat on the porch and passed out candy until it was all gone. We ran out by 6:30! There are alot of kids by us. Nick and I didn't dress up (although we wanted to...just never got costumes together) but Savannah was Frankenkitty. She didn't like her little costume. She even had little braclet type things that went around her legs but it was hard enough to get the hat on her. We only left it on her for like 15 min. She seemed pretty miserable. Just enough time for me to get a couple of pictures. Maybe at Christmas she'll let me put reindeer antlers on her! I doubt it.
