Wow! October just flew by, didn't it? I think the stress of work and football season just about did me in this year though. Thankfully, my mother is home and doing very well after her surgery. She is still not able to do much, but at least she is getting some well-deserved and needed rest. We have one final game this week, but the official marching season has ended. The kids were great this year. This is a picture of my son, Patrick, on field during the weekend competition. They placed 6th in the state for our school division, which is pretty great. They also placed 3rd for music performance. We are very proud of this group of kids.
This past week I finished a quilt project. I am so excited about this one. Isn't it adorable. This is Spooky Hollow, an applique quilt. This is my very first completed applique quilt. I had such a great time working on this one. I love the fabric colors and everything. I have plans to complete more of these smaller quilts soon.
Finally, we went to a Halloween party last night at our friends, Theresa and Steve. Hobbie and I dressed as Flo (Progressive insurance commercial) and Mayhem (Allstate insurance commercial). Patrick is dressed as Beetlejuice and Nicholas is a "stupid" mime (he wouldn't wear make-up and talked the whole time). We had such a great time last night. Hobbie and I won the Golden Pumpkin award for best costumes. Thanks!
