i know! it has been a really long time since i have done just a good old fashioned post! here you go... ;) random thoughts mixed with a few events!

my birthday was great! we made my all time favorite dessert: chocolate delight!

it was amazing... as usual! the bad part was that i had to share with my mom... cuz she loves it too! usually i get most of it to myself! ha!

my good friend jeff went to hawaii with his sister in october too! what fun for them! here is one of the many pics he sent me while he was there!

i would have never guessed he was a tourist! lol!

nice shirt and shoes there buddy. :) looking good!!

my best friend's brother and his family also came out to visit! it was sooooo much fun to see them!

he has 3 girls and they have all grown up so fast! and are so beautiful!

this picture is: kevin, his wife robin, and their oldest daughter kenzie.

and another visitor too!!! my mom's cousin and his wife came to visit too! what a fun month of friends and family visits!!

ian and sara were on their way to california for the month of november and stopped here! we were so lucky to see them!

such a fun weekend!

in other news and events...

my mom flew out to indiana this morning to spend thanksgiving with my uncle steve and aunt paula! when they were her visiting last month they invited her to come out! i am very excited for her! she hasn't been back "home" to indiana since 1991! she is going to have such a fun visit! and i am a tad jealous! i love indiana and visiting my fabulous family out there! all 3 of my cousins still live in the area and i would love to see them too!

yesterday we had an early celebration of thanksgiving with our friends since mom will be gone for thanksgiving! it was so fun! we ate and laughed and play games all day! i am so blessed to have them in my life!

i am feeling a little bit overwhelmed with all of the projects i have going on! i am in the middle of making my christmas cards! they are very cute... but more time consuming than i realized they would be!

i have started 3 t-shirt quilts! one of them is from all of my creating keepsake shirts i wore when i travelled with them. another is just random shirts of mine over the years and the last one is random shirts of kevins! geez! i really need to get these done so i can have my living room back!!

and my last project i have is my christmas gifts for my family and friends. a couple of weeks ago we had a craft night at church and i bought a ton of this particular craft to make. well... i went a little over board! ha! they are really cute and fairly simple, i just need to find the time to do them!

i am also hosting bunco in december! i am excited and nervous! excited because i love bunco and i do think its fun to shop and plan a party! plus in december we usually go potluck, so the only thing i have to cook is the ham!! easy! but i am nervous because i am not sure where i am going to put everyone! i will have my christmas tree up and i have too much furniture in my living room! so there might be some major remodeling during the christmas season to accommodate my tree! ha!

well... i better go work on those christmas cards... :) have a good day!

You go girl! You sound like me in the craft area of your life, all these projects and no time to do them. We need a girls weekend to finish. Or to shop for more?

I LOVE your Post! It's fun to see what your up to and read your thoughts. I sure think the world of you and you know what? I'm thankful for YOU Jen. I admire you in so many ways! I haven't seen you in a long time or talked face to face either, I'm so glad we stay connected through our blogs though! maybe once the crazy holiday season is over we could get together for lunch!? xoxo

It's no wonder you don't have your "real" posts. Who could find time when they are so busy?!? I hope Bunco turns out great!
