Hello everyone!!

 I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We did!
My siblings and I cut close to 50 apples, while Amber played Lady GaGa for us. We made 3 pies and 2 strudel and had a gallon size bag of cut up apples left over.  My brother Danny got a blister from peeling the apples - poor baby!
We took Christmas card pictures, ate a ton (because my Aunt Jackie is the best cook), crocheted, looked at a zillion World Expo Quilt Show pictures, and enjoyed the day together!
The highlight of the day was getting this 1950's projector to work. With my Uncle Travis' help we were able to watch old movies my grandpa made 45 years ago. It was awesome!! 
I finished scanning all the slides, finally!! It was not an easy task ;)
Here is an old photo of Weeki Wachee, you Floridians are familiar with this I'm sure! 
Now I want to go! Have any of you been?
This is just one of my favorite slides! That is nurse Jackie (Aunt Jackie) and that cowboy is my dad! Hilarious! Now I just to put them on a DVD with some music from my sister iPod. 
Oh and I now have brownish red hair, no more blonde.  
What do you think? I'm sure the blonde will be back soon.
I'm excited about Christmas! I did some online shopping and etsy shopping over the weekend. No malls for this girl- no thank you! I think it would bum me out. I also have a list of projects that need to get finished before Christmas. First I need to shake my cold! Wish me luck!
