To return or not to return

I know this is our first set of silverware but for some reason I don't think it should have those funky rust-like spots on it after a month of use. We haven't done anything other than eat with them but they are already looking dirty. Our stainless steel its looking not so stainless right now.

So should we return them or try to clean them??

Bits and Pieces

Our wedding centerpieces make an appearance at the Thanksgiving table this year. Everything looked great decked out in orange and red. I love fall colors!

It was great to see every one and visit. We don't have many traditions because of all the recent changes in our family but it still seems like we all make the effort to be together on holidays.

After our yummy supper and a few hours of sleep we were ready to brave the crowds for Black Friday. I think we did our share of economy stimulating :o) Richie finally got the tool box he had his eye on since July. I didn't think it was going to fit in the back of the car but he squeezed it in there!

Hooray for Oprah!

As if she isn't cool enough...

Free photo book + lots of wedding photos = a fantastic way to show them off!

I finally finished my snapfish book a mere two hours before my photo book offer was due to expire. It really looked good on the computer and I can't wait to see it for real. It's going to be hard to wait the 3 weeks they said it would take to have it shipped.

Gotta love Oprah and saving twenty bucks!

Poor pup

Poor Bevo! We feel so bad knowing that we did this to him!

It is kinda nice that he wants extra cuddles, even if he is following Richie around like his shadow.

These may be the worst part. He has to wear these "booties" when he goes outside since his feel have to stay dry until Saturday. He's not too crazy about them and already tried to lose them once in the yard.

Since you're missing summer

Remember how warm it was the day we took these?!?!

I finally put them on a disk so they are ready for your viewing/printing/sharing pleasure :o)

I figured you could pick them up when you come for dinner with your boyfriend!

who came home to a clean house on Saturday ?!?!?!

He even put the blanket I was working on into a basket. Much nicer than the Walmart bag I had been dragging it around in :o)

Me hearts my husband

Prayer Warriors

Borrowed from the Wertz's blog:

Please pray for Aunt Sharon

She had a heart cath today and has 4 blockages, and a bad stint. They admitted her immediately and she will have open heart surgery sometime next week. PLEASE pray that not only will the surgery help her to be healthier, but that she can make it through the surgery OK. Her health has not been very good over the past several years and she has been in and out of the hospital in serious condition so many times before. Thank you for your prayers!!

Messy face

Every time I take Bryce's picture he has food on his face! That doesn't make him any less cute though :o)

Alan: What should I draw?
Me: Draw a picture of Bevo.

Alan: OK

Me: Don't forget to draw his ears...

I think he did a pretty good job since B is really all legs and ears :o)

One More...

I forgot that I didn't post a picture of our pumpkins. I picked something easy (the spider) and Richie picked the hardest design in the book. They looked pretty cool on our porch.

I can't wait to dig through our totes and find out what great Thanksgiving stuff we have to put out now.
