Gina is one of those gals who can do just about anything she puts her mind to - flower arranging, party throwing - she and Kelly are always up to something, those two! Family events are always more of a celebration when they are at the helm. Kelly can cook and cook and cook but spends so much of her time making us laugh or chasing Jack and Moira around! She loves to plan a party just as much as I do. We've spent some late nights decorating cakes and drinking plenty of Tim Horton's coffee. It's the way crafty girls bond.
Even the sweet little hinies of these characters have a rag stitch bow and a heart charm of love.
I told Ben what I wanted for Christmas - could he arrange to bring Kelly here for a visit sometime in January? He said yes, of course, and that was that! Kelly! Are you coming? I have so many places to take you. We can plan it all when we see each other in Chicago in three weeks.
Time to put away the Halloween wreath. We had only two trick-or-treaters and they were adults. I made this wreath for myself last year and one like it for Kelly and also for Pepper.
And now time for these little creatures to trapse through our yard at the golf course. It's like living in the wild with hungry critters in the winter and frustrated golfers in the summer. This porcupine waddled through the yard at quite a pace the other day. Sidney named him "Ereth" after a porcupine character in one of her favourite novels. When I chased him down to get a photo, I noticed so many deer tracks on the undeveloped lot next door.
Andrew and I went to see Marie Antoinette. It was fantastic. It was everything I'd hoped it would be and I can't wait to see it again and own the DVD. I'm reading the book it was based on, The Journey by Antonia Fraser now. Read any good books lately?
