Today the sun was out so Kade and I ran a few errands so I could stay in the rest of the week in case the sun doesn't show itself again. This afternoon I decided to work on some projects that I'd already started just so I could say they're done. The project I just finished is my Christmas cards! Let me rephrase that so no one gets mad at me. I finished the outside. Mickey still has to take the family picture and I have to write the little blurb that goes inside. I started the cards last month at a crop with my friends. I didn't want to print pictures so that's what I decided to work on. I also knew I would be terribly busy most of November and December. Who isn't? In case anyone is curious here's a picture of the supplies I used to make my cards. I will post the finished product in December. There are two variations of the card if you're wondering.
I just want to thank my friends Becca, Vicky, and Tricia for all their support while getting the card started. And talking/forcing me to use glitter glue. I couldn't have done it without you and the card wouldn't have looked as good either.
Last month I finished the cable jacket I was knitting. Soon I will get a picture of it. I've worn it a few times. It's very cozy and keeps me toasty warm. Now I have a stack of cable squares to sew together. But I have a line of bags waiting to be sewn too. There's too much for me to do. Maybe I'll spend the entire winter in the office.

I hope to get a picture of Lily laying on the blanket, someday.
Don't think that I'm going to waste the other flannel. The Relief Society, the woman's organization in our church, has asked us to do some service for our community this year and report about it at a dinner. I will make the rag quilt and donate it. I'm also working with a few sewing group friends to make afghans to donate to Real Services. As a family we are also going to adopt one or two elderly people and help them have a better Christmas than they would. Should be fun.

Last week as I was leaving and/or coming home I noticed a lot of color on a rose bush. I had to go take a look. This is what it looked like: four open roses and at least two buds. Here it was the first week of November, we had already had frosts in the night, and we had our first snow. This rose bush looked better than it had in the summer. Go figure.
Meg's game was first. She played goalie a lot. The coach even took out his own daughter to put Meg in. She's good. The last game is when the players get their medals and patches. The coach forgot. Supposedly they are in the mail. Here's a few good shots of Meg's game and a team photo. She is really into it. Just look at her face. Reminds me of someone else when they used to play.
Mat's game was right after Meg's and on the next field. We loved it when it worked out like that. Mattey wasn't as motivated as in other games. She played but was more willing to sit and cheer. Mat got to play goalie. That's when she's wearing the big gloves. Mattey did get her medal and patch. She was happy about that.
