Joelle is entering a pumpkin-carving contest at school tomorrow...

Not a bad meal for only figuring out what supper was going to be at 4:30.

I took the girls to the church with me tonight for a baby shower where we honored three new moms. Malia took great pride in laying out one of the mom's gifts for all to see.

Blizzards and smoothies on the way home from shopping and errands this afternoon...because apparently Daddy can't say no to a DQ request.

Happy sigh for a night out with my bestie which included a successful shopping trip (including sale items AND coupons!), yummy nachos and wonderful conversation.

Unfortunately the days of trampolining are almost finished for another year...

Happiness is...rediscovering a thoughtful gift from a friend at the bottom of my purse!

Here is the finished product of the fun project I was working on yesterday! It was made for a little boy's Halloween costume and it has already created quite a buzz with orders!

Working on a fun new project for one of my handiwork customers.

Family cookie-baking (and cookie dough EATING) night!

Driving home after a long day in the city. It felt later due to the early darkness but it was really only 7:30pm (and snowing although you can't see it in the picture).

Preparing to sing one of my favorite songs at our church's Thanksgiving program.

I love it when these little munchkins come over to play.

One of the best ways to pass the time while I'm cleaning houses is listening to uplifting Christian music on my Songza app.

Here's hoping my poor girl won't cough all night long.

Working hard on her math crossword puzzle homework tonight. So proud of her, she got them all right!

I was beyond excited - giddy even - to start introducing the girls to the oh-so-classic Anne of Green Gables movies today. So far they are loving it...and I am remembering very vividly my young girl crush on Gilbert. ;)

Today I am thankful for these two beautiful and wonderful friends...and the sweet lil' babe who came for an evening of snacks, a movie and good conversation and laughs.

Good ol' Saturday cleaning. Today the three of us tackled Malia's room...and yes, it really needed all three of us!

It was Sob-Fest 2013 over here today as I watched the episode of Glee where they said farewell to Finn's character. It would've been sad enough if it was just his character that died...but the actor's real death made it so much sadder.

Tomorrow is the day I start Phase 1 of going through my closet for the upcoming clothing exchange...and I think some tidying and reorganization is also in the cards!

I love it when my girls do sweet things for each other. Today Joelle prepared an after school snack for Malia while I was meeting her at the bus stop.

Soaking up the gorgeous sun on this beautiful fall day, trying to take advantage of the weather while I can!

So tickled about how Malia's birthday cake turned out (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs theme) that this picture is being posted everywhere today!!

Trying to keep warm in the house tonight with Les' big socks! Brrr...we'll have to turn the furnace on soon at this rate.

A sampling of what my day consisted of today: cleaning a client's house, groceries and other errands, crocheting and Bible study. Never enough hours in the day...

There's something so breathtakingly beautiful about fall leaves on the ground.

We're back in birthday mode over here as Malia turned 8 today! Here she is about to enjoy her free cinnamon bun at our special mother/daughter lunch.
