Veteran's Day

Today is the day, if you don't do it any other day, to THANK A VET!  These are the men and women who have sacrificed their lives to put country before self.  They ensure you live a FREE life.  DO NOT EVER take that for granted.

Happy Veteran's Day.

Halloween is over....

Time to move on to the next holidays. It is insane to me how quickly the last three months of the year fly by. I figure the biggest reason for this is retail outlets that have the next holiday on sale before the current holiday has even passed. I was in one on the day before Halloween and the Halloween things were bunched into one aisle on "clearance" while a huge section of the store was already set up for Christmas. Did I miss Thanksgiving somewhere along the way?

Halloween was a "season" for us this year. I volunteered to do the Trick or Treat Street event at the kids' school. It was a raging success with upwards of 450 guests at the event. That meant I had to feed AND entertain all those people. I had a great group of volunteers, the hardest working being my hubby! We will most likely end up doing it again next year, too. The next day, Halloween itself, we walked in the school's trick or treat fun run, did trick or treating in the evening and I threw a 40th "boo"thday bash for my wonderful hubby.

Needless to say, November 1st was spent on the couch!
