This and That

I haven't been real busy just lazy.  I enjoyed the extra hour of sleep and all the extra sleep from the weekend.  I guess that is what I needed.
This is my Thanksgiving potpourri
Our daughter Holly made these very cute paper dolls to send to our granddaughter (sponsored) child in Africa.  Brenda is 8 years old so I think she will like them.  Can you tell it is Marvin, Brenda and me? 

We have been enjoying our bible study so much and have learned so much from our group.  Last week a couple brought in their daughter's 2002 Olympic Torch that she carried so that was neat to be able to see.  And then the same couple (Jim) talked about how he was an aide to Dwight Eisenhower when they were in Berlin.  So we got a history lesson.  We actually were talking about the first time we received communion and since I was Catholic and brought up the Church he started to talk about a Catholic Church in Berlin.   This is our last week and I am going to miss this group. 
We only had 4 trick or treaters this year.  There were not very many lights on our street.  For each of the granddkids I made up a bag of candy and also send  a letter.  I made the stationary with the pictures of the animals.  I thought it would be fun to take a picture next to our fake pumpkin with each of the animals.  I don't know what I was thinking. 
We started with Max he actually ended up doing pretty well
Next was Tiger- you can tell he was not very happy


And then Khloe she wanted nothing to do with it

I had such a sweat worked up we finally gave up on her.


Hope you have a great week!
