Thanksgiving this year was rough without Detto....
It is really difficult for me to even "feel" like decorating or celebrating without him here.
I am glad that all of my family came over to my house this year for Thanksgiving. It made my house feel full and happy. It was really a great distraction.
It turned out GREAT!!
Abby snacking on something!
I was shocked when Abby walked right up to him and wanted to climb in his lap!
Silly girl, she's too young to know better. Hee hee hee!
My Mom & Dad with Ishana!
This was so cute. Abby wanted a hug and kiss, but Reilly didnt. Abby kept trying and Reilly was turning her head away. It was hillarious!
Alyssa and Kirin playing Piano! I love those girls!
I am so blessed to have so many wonderful nieces and nephews.
Friday night we went to Marge's house to see the "Mongiovi" side of the family, but I forgot my camera. I was really hoping to get some good pictures of the kids. They are all getting sooooo big!
I even put new batteries in my camera and then left it on the counter!
I am so blessed that this Thanksgiving there was no drama or problems of ANY kind!
Everything went smooth!
I just really wish Detto could have been here. I really really really really really miss him!
Hopefully the time will fly and he will be home soon.
I wish he were coming home tomorrow.
Before the "Mass Consumption" began, aka Thanksgiving, we went to see Papa C to show him how thankful we are that he is still around!
Stephen got to talk to Detto for almost an hour.
My Mom's side of the family are so crazy. It was so much fun hanging out.
When I say crazy I mean that as a compliment. Let me explain, we went to visit my grandfather at his assisted living home. There are aproximately 5 other residents living there full time. Well, my mom thought it would be a great idea to bring nerf toys! It was a GREAT idea!
We had a blast!
It was a very Happy "day before" Thanksgiving!
I cant wait to see what they do for Christmas!!
Ok, Here is a preview of some of the Quilts that will be leaving my home this year.
I wont tell which ones are being donated to a good cause and which ones are Christmas gifts.
I didnt put a few on here just because I knew they would be a dead giveaway to who the intended recipient is!
And this is lots of scrappy fun with tons of little half square triangles around the whole thing. I hope one little girl loves it as much as I do.
Here is a picture of a quilt that is in progress right now.
This quilt is being worked on as a leaders and enders project. I love how quick its turning out!
I love it how scrappy it is.

We were blessed to be able to go to Kyle's Birthday Party last week.
Kyle is such a sweet kid!
Happy 10th Birthday Kyle!
The kids were really excited about going to Skate World to "hang out"!
It was alot of fun.
I am so glad that we were invited!
It was good to get out and go skating!

I was shocked this week when I checked the mail....
there was a HUGE box and guess what was in it???
THIS BEAUTIFUL BABY...
I LOVE IT!!
It is even Blue - My favorite color!!
These things turned out "slap your Momma" good! Wowzers! I made some yummy brown sugar icing and that is all she wrote!!
I also made some HEAVENLY Garlic Herb Baguettes, but they didn't last long enough for any pictures!
I will take pictures next time I make them!
Thank You Detto for my new mixer!! I LOVE IT!
The next day some mixer attatchments came in the mail!! I can't wait to try those out too!!
