They turned out so cute!

Signs and a Witch Hat

 I finally finished my Witch hat in time for this weekend.  Debbie and I saw this in downtown McKinney when they visited us a couple of weekends ago.  We took a picture of it and came home and made it the next day.  Isn't she a cutie????  Those are raindrops on the hat brim.  Cool and rainy in McKinney today.
Happy Halloween!

Here are the football signs that I make for the bazaar.  
This one is for Oklahoma. 

Below is a Texas sign in their colors.  

Cowboys Sign.
It was great working in the garage today.  Nice and cool.  
I even found time to make a pot of chili for dinner.  
We will be sitting in front of the TV watching the Rangers Game tonight.  
Thanks for stopping by.

Lunch again!!!

Tuesday Pat and I went down to Waters Creek in Allen, TX.  
We hadn't been to that development for a long time and wanted to see what was new in the area.  
We stopped at Grimaldi's for pizza and beer.  It was delicious. 
I almost forgot to take a picture of the pizza.  
It was Italian sausage, onions, kalamati olives and fresh sliced tomatoes.  
On the way to lunch I asked Pat to stop at Hobby Lobby 
so I could purchase some Doll Hair for my carolers.  
When we got home from lunch I worked in the garage until 6PM 
putting the hair on their heads and the songbooks in their hands.  
Now they are marked, bagged and ready for the bazaar.  
I made 24 of them this year.  
Today our friends from Omaha are flying in and so it is going to be a fun weekend!
Thanks for stopping by.

Candy Canes and Lunch with Pat

 Here is a picture of the 15 Candy Canes that I completed this weekend with the help of Steve and Tre'.  Now to put the greenery and bows on them and they will be ready for the bazaar. 
I think I mentioned that Pat and I went out to lunch last week.  
Here is a picture of us in the restaurant.
It was a good time and yes we did have a little wine!  
Today there is no school, so we have Jack all day.  
Sam just called and wants me to take him to school at 3:15 
to get ready for his football game tonight at 7PM. 
It will be a beautiful night sitting on the bleachers.  
I have been working in the garage most of the day.  
I will take pictures of my completed project in a couple of days.  
Thanks for stopping by!
