This week I missed Trick-orTreating with these cuties
But we did get to trick-or-treat with these lovelies.
I signed up to help with quilts to be made for some
New Jersey victims of Hurricane Sandy.
You can still sign up to help here.
We picked our first bowl of 50 Satsuma tangerines.
There are many more bowls to be picked from our two dwarf trees.
They are very heavily loaded with fruit this year.
She wanted pinwheels, but since this is a secret bee I disguised
the colors and fabric choices.
Wouldn't this make a great scrapbook paper?
One of our sons lives on a "Fairy Tale" street.
I say this because never in my life have I seen a neighborhood that has so many parties
and get-togethers as this street does, except maybe on Desperate Housewives.
There must be 40 kids who live on their street
all between the ages of 6 weeks and 18 years old.
They all get along and help each other
with home projects, babysitting and carpooling.
A real community!
This celebration was a chili cook-off and pie baking contest,
complete with patio furniture moved into the cul de sac and a firepit.
I made a cherry pie.
My first cherry pie NOT using the canned cherry pie filling.
I won, along with their neighbor, Susan, who won for her delicious chili recipe!
No one said they go all out on the trophies,
but this Red Solo Cup does
have a song named after it so
I am honored.
This quilt was delivered to Tania, who is undergoing radiation treatments.
There are only eight weeks left in the year.
Time sure flies when you are having fun!
Have a great week.
