What Are We Making?

What are we making? Something from red felt and white beads....

...jingle bells, green felt hats, gold tinsel...

Jingle Bell Elf Ornaments! Kaitlin and I made twenty of these for gifts this year.

Thanksgiving 2008

Once again we traveled to San Diego for Thanksgiving. We did the "Run For The Hungry" in the morning and then enjoyed a delicious buffet in the afternoon.

We were especially happy that "Auntie Roz" joined us on Thursday evening! Roz is a friend who feels like a member of the family.

That evening we headed to the movies as usual. The boys saw the new James Bond. The girls saw "Twilight" which was a big disappointment. Kaitlin and I have read the books and were expecting great things. Oh well. We had a couple of good laughs. Roz was a good sport, not even complaining until I remarked, "Wow this movie stinks..." I only confirmed what she and Kaitlin were thinking.

On Friday morning we went shopping at the local mall. Had to do our part for the economy of course! Afterward we said goodbye to Roz and headed home.

It was a great vacation and the kids hardly even fought.
