First off, I'm so excited to be taking part in Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year. If you look on the sidebar, you'll see a link to the blog where you can find all the details. It's the perfect thing for me since I love Scarlet Letter, so of course I joined in right away.
And a funny coincidence, since I'm already working on a Scarlet Letter piece!
The fill in is slow going, but I'm enjoying seeing all the various motifs come to life.
Don't you love the parrot and the snail?
There was another reason I might not have gotten as much stitching done as I would have liked. Thanksgiving! It was so wonderful to have both my kids back home again. And I think Mia was happy about it as well.
Although it was hard to tell at times. She would do things like get as close to the girl child as possible, but also hiss at her. Such a mixed up kitty!
And of course, there was the cooking. The girl child took part in the makings this year. She was in charge of the pecan pie.
We ate of course.
And we played our old favorite game of Apples to Apples. We even watched a movie on my laptop.
We also managed the next day to see Wreck It Ralph. In 3D. Note the father type in his 3D glasses after seeing the movie.
Mia managed to sneak in a bit of a coffee high as well -- she loves coffee! (And no, she only got to lick the cup.)
We went out to eat at one of our favorite restaurants too.
We even managed to fit in a yummy breakfast at a new IHop. And yes, the kids managed to see their friends and hang out with them as well.
It's been a great Thanksgiving. I think we all appreciate being together more now that we are apart so much. We're all looking forward to Christmas break already. It's a bit sad today -- everyone has to leave to go back to college and work soon. But I'm so grateful for the time we had together this Thanksgiving.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I'm posting a day early today. Hope everyone who celebrated enjoyed their Thanksgiving as well. Have a great week!
