Thanksgiving Week...

Wow! I think the older I get the faster the years seem to fly by...does anyone else feel this way too? Such an amazing year. Met boy. Had a few lovely months with boy. Boy left the picture. Went on vacation with the nephew, ERD. Had the best time! Wished for the next few months I was still in Savannah and or Charleston. October started off with a scare. Lincoln displayed signs of bladder stones. And sure enough, almost one year to the day of his surgery last year he was in the ER again and had to have a second surgery. :( Let's just say the surgery basically made him a female. Well not really, but he now pees like a girl. Hopefully this surgery and his new diet will not bring back any more stones. After all, mama can't afford another surgery! My poor baby. He is doing fine now, but what a stressful time.
So needless to say I didn't get to plan the puppies Halloween costumes- I originally wanted them to be Alvin, Simon and Theodore. But time got the best of me so I just recycled costumes from 2 years ago. Franklin was Spiderman, Lincoln was Peter Pan, and Madison was a bumble bee. They looked so cute and helped me pass out candy. OK, so they really didn't help me, but they sure did look super cute.
I have been lurking lately. Reading TONS of craft blogs and making some cute stuff. Here is my simple fall wreath, my monogram burlap frame (
see the idea here) and my Advent Calendar (borrowed the idea from here).

Well I guess that's it for now...I will leave you with a picture of Madison. She went to vote with me earlier this month. I usually take all 3 but let's just say it's a lot easier to punch a ballot with one Yorkie...plus Lincoln, a Republican and Franklin, a Democrat usually don't see eye to eye on election day, so they stayed at Nana and Papa's when I went to vote! :) Happy Thanksgiving to y'all!

Love, The Preppy Principal
