Whoa, it's November?

Even though we had some snow flurries last week, I still can't grasp that it's November already.  When did that happen?  I didn't even get to decorate for Halloween the way I like to, bummer.

Moving was a priority over decorating - what a mess!  

One of the first areas I organized was the coffee/tea "station".  Morning refreshments were a must!

Just before we moved, the boys had their high school homecoming to attend with their girlfriends.  I thought they all looked great and they had a good time.

Since one of the girls went to another school, there was another one to go to.  Nathan didn't want to miss out!

Isn't this awesome?!  My chosen sister, Karen, came to visit and help me organize and made me this.  I LOVE it!  Her Mom helped her finish it and I think it looks great.

It went beautifully with what I did find to decorate with.

And hey, here's the little ceramic spider I made with Nathan!

Karen also made this for Nathan.  He loves the colour orange - and an alien, even better!

Karen loving Max.

Ming's turn.

Karen with the gmen.

My craft room, what a disaster and it's not all mine!
"Where does this box belong? I don't know, put it in Astrid's room."

Before I knew it, it was Halloween!  Nathan was originally supposed to be a ninja, but we couldn't find his costume in the move.  Luckily, we did have a box with old costumes and so he was Darth Vader instead.

Star Wars buddies everywhere!

I really think our friends need to feed their dogs a little more.

So now you know where to find me, still sorting out the stitching, card making, knitting, jewelry and other misc crafts... I keep finding more!

But thanks to Karen and DJ who helped me through this mess, I'm almost ready to have a stitching date in there.

How thrilling to be in your new home for the holidays Astrid. Don't worry about the stack of boxes, etc. they will get put away in good time. The kids look great.

Your house looks great!! So glad you survived the "box debacle"!! The boys look great as always...I love how Nathan is peeking out the door! Can't wait for a stitch date in your new craft room! *Hugs*

I'm never moving LOL. It looks like total disorganised chaos but at least you had helpers.
Love the Star Wars themed costumes too. And the skinny dogs.
