We began our day at the parking lot of our church. Our son, Aaron, started what hopefully will be an annual Turkey Trot from our church parking lot--with the choice of walking two miles or for those runners, a 5k. He and his friend, Randy, mapped the whole course out by chalking official arrows on the roads and sidewalks to keep everyone on the right course. The cost to participate was two items of nonperishable food for our church food pantry. There was a good turnout.
My parents are excellent pie makers. Yum!We are especially thankful for these three.
Whew--they just made it through. Size of units: 14"x30"; size of window, 15"x31"Before (this closet had not been repainted since we moved in 24 years ago):
After (Mark's side):
Yes, he has empty shoe shelves--so maybe I could even get more than six pairs!Mug shots:
Thank you, Heather!
One of my favorite Starbucks mugs from years ago--Jolly, and the mug from Canada looks particularly festive this time of year.
Cathy had the picture put on a mug for me.
I'll end this week's post with a couple of Christmas-y pictures. Each year we get C, G and L ornaments for their tree. I try to pick something representative of the past year. This year they had a season-long pass to Disneyland and have been able to go quite a few times.
