November had several events in it. Not to mention Thanskgiving!
First of all, we went on a geocaching walk with some friends.
Seth had fun finding the caches.
Joel really enjoyed walking our friends' dog, Cinnamon.
I think even Rob enjoyed it. Although he got cold.
I know I enjoy geocaching. If you are ever interested in learning more .. there is a great website here. I am looking forward to warmer weather so I can find more caches :)
I made this frame. I'm not overly thrilled with it, but it's the first time I've done decoupage or painting in a very long time. So, overall, not a terrible effort. I need to get a 4x6 print of the boys made so that I can put it in this frame.
Since I had paints out, and had purchased some canvases as well, Joel wanted to make a couple paintings himself. He gave this one to Gma Stohr.
I finished knitting two pairs of fingerless mitts. I was going to make just one pair for myself, but the k2tog going in two opposite directions looked .. well, not matching, so I made the exact same pattern twice so that I could have pairs of matching mitts. I gave one pair away in a gift exchange we did at church. I can tell you a bit more about that in a later post.
Then of course we come to Thanksgiving. I'll post just a couple of my favorite pics.
I think this is a really good one of my sister :)
I love the look of surprise on mom's face. :)
After spending Thanksgiving at my sister's, we drove to Altoona and met up with a good friend. I finished these two items to give toher as a pre-Christmas gift.
We drove on home after meeting for lunch with Mich. :)
Right after this, that Sunday, I walked in a Christmas Parade for our church. Well, that must have been what a virus was waiting for, because I got a really bad bad cold that night and through the next week. DH was so nice to me, after he realized I was indeed feeling miserable, he brought me a dozen roses :) They were very pretty. Just wish they would have lasted longer!
That's the end of November. Look at me. Almost caught up!
