Cutest pumpkins ever

Today I enjoyed working with people on both ends of the age spectrum. My mother in law and I have an almost yearly tradition of participating in a craft fair at a senior center. She sells beautiful music CD's that she has recorded, and I sell homemade greeting cards from pictures I have taken.

Later in the day, I went to work with Addie and Kellen who were all dressed up in their little pumpkin costumes. I think the pictures say it all. Their big brother Grady helped me make some cards too. He is great at helping me measure and cut paper.

Italy trip

I have been going through my pictures, and have enjoyed looking at this album of Italy. I was able to go over last year to attend a conference. This was the first time I have been back in twenty years. The pictures are made up mostly of places we lived as a family. My brother and I were able to go together, and we were graciously hosted by some friends of ours from language school in Perugia. I feel such a sense of nostalgia when I look at these pictures. I miss Italy so much. It was strange to go back as a tourist knowing I would be returning to the US after such a short time. Tonight I made cookies with Nutella in them, and I remembered how much I enjoyed the simple pleasures. Fortunately, you can find it here! Saturday, we are going up to my brother's house to celebrate a late Thanksgiving, only we will be making homemade tortellini instead of turkey. Happy Thanksgiving!
