I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving this week! We spent the day at my Mom and Dad's house with most of the family. It was a fun and hectic day.

I've been so busy making up things that I've got orders for, I haven't had much time for anything else. My sister and I did take last Saturday to go bazaaring and ended the day at Hubby's Pizza eating our favorite dill pickle pizza. It was so yummy!

One of the gal's I work with just returned from China with her sister and a new niece that her sister adopted there. It was quite the experience for them. They were there 2 weeks and got to see some of the tourist places too. She has some great stories to tell everyone. Her niece is 3 1/2 and a cutie.

I have 2 more weeks of 40 hours a week to work until the gal comes back that is on medical leave. It's been interesting trying to keep up with all my crochet orders while working full time.

Mike just left for the Tucannon to deer hunt. He and his BIL rented a trailer up there so they didn't have to tow any trailers or take a wall tent this time. Hopefully, they'll come back with meat in their coolers! They boys stayed home this time. Andy has the broken collar bone still and Tyke missed some school due to a sinus infection he had recently. They need to catch up on school work.

Andy is healing up pretty well. He thinks he can go everywhere without his arm sling, but I think he needs to wear it for a while more so that people aren't bumping into him. All he needs is to pop those bones out again and he will be in surgery for it.

Tomorrow we are going to my folks' again for my dad's 91st birthday. We're having taco salad, taco soup and whatever else gets brought over. It'll be a houseful, I'm sure.

Well, that about catches me up for now. I'll write more when I can.

Football + Teenage Boys =

Emergency Room!

The boys were all playing football across the street at the school and Andy broke his collar bone! He's been in some pain, but the meds. seem to be helping him sleep for now. He's in some funky strap thing that he has to wear all the time for 2 weeks. He can't do anything for 4 weeks, which rules out late hunting season in 2 weeks.

We're helping to host an archery shoot Sunday and the weather turned bad on us. It's windy and rainy today. It's going to be a cold football game this afternoon. We've had such nice weather lately that this is really depressing.

I just wanted to update you all on our little corner of the world.

Have a good holiday weekend!

I'm Here, Just Busy

It's been a while since I've posted anything here. Things have been very busy.

Andy's team was undefeated, as was the JV and varsity teams. The varsity is the #1 seed in the playoffs for the state championship. They are ranked in the AP poll as #3 in the state this week. That's pretty awesome!

We had the first playoff game today against Hanford. They are a local team. The score was 45-10 and we won! Hanford is now done. We are playing Southridge next week. They are another local team.

The booster club has been selling lots of my stuff. I've got to make up some more things for next week's game.

I've got a few boobie pillow orders to fill soon. People are starting to think about Christmas gifts now.

For those of you that have been receiving my handmade cards for years, this year may be different. I have not had time to work on even the designing of them. I will try to send out a letter, but as Mike is telling everyone,"Don't expect cards until June." I hate to stop making them, but this year is just not working for me. Maybe after the holidays I can work on 2007 and 2008 ones and send them all out at once.

My sister and I went bazaar jumping last night and today. It was fun to get out and see the new ideas out there. I also gave out a few of my business cards. I didn't buy much but I won the cutest quilted turkey wall hanging for a raffle ticket I bought. I'll try to take a picture of it and post it for you to see.

Well, I'm going to go crochet some more boobies, so I can ship some out this week. You all take care and drop me a comment once in a while.
