Thanksgiving Touch-Up & Outings

Wow, Thanksgiving is this week!  Are you ready for the big day?  Last week was pretty busy for us and we weren't going to have a night available for a date.  Lee and I went to the community center for a lunch date.  We played pool, and ping-pong too. After arriving home we ate some leftover cheesecake from Young Women in Excellence.

In addition to lots of food prep, I have been getting the house ready too.  The hall closet and computer desk were especially messy.  I love the idea I found on some blogs (iheartorganizing and thirftydecorchic) to empty out the space, put back what you want and get rid of what you don't need.  Too bad I didn't take a picture of the coat closet stuff on the ground.  I was bewildered myself that so much stuff was on our little coat closet! This is of the computer desk clean-out.

I bought a new tube of caulking and did some of that last week.  I also received a sweet letter from my niece!

One of the young women from church was in the play "School House Rocks".  She and the whole cast did a great job. I took the girls with me and we made it a special date.

Later, after getting Lee and Clark (Cal and Elden too) from Scouts we all headed to Target.  I bet you are SO surprised that there was a Frozen backdrop amongst all the Frozen merchandise clothing.

I have been thinking about painting this chair for awhile.  I finally did it!  Friday night I did the primer.  I have one more coat of paint to go and it will be done!

I recently found out about placemat pillows.  So cool!  Here is the link if you're interested:

A bit of holiday decor!  The pillow cost me a total of about $6.50!

We enjoyed going to the temple last Saturday.  It was the 40th year of its dedication too!

Saturday afternoon I went shopping with my girls and three other nieces. It was fun having them come! I stocked up on holiday goodies at Trader Joe's...YUM!

Sunday night Lee made lava cakes for ALL of us! Delicious.  He made eight so Lee and I split one.  Yummy!

And lastly, Cal volunteered to help Elden unload the dishwasher so he could play with him.  So cute.
