Turkey Day 2009

I just wanted to wish everyone a joyful and blessed Thanksgiving.

I am so thankful for my family, friends, being of sound body and mind. I cannot tell you how happy I am to have, yet another, holiday with my dad. What a great gift to be given, the gift of life. He amazes me everyday with his strength despite a bleak future. Thanks be to God most high:-)! Please continue to pray for him.

I leave next friday for my first half-marathon. YIKES! I have been sick so who knows what to expect. I am just hoping to finish the race under 4 hours. I will be walking the entire 13.1 miles up and down the Strip. It could be worse, it could always be worse;-)

Again, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Tinker and Cruella

Better late than never, right?! Here are the fun 2009 Halloween costumes that I made. I was Crella and my BFF was Tinkerbell.

For my costume I already owned the dress and shoes. I purchased the hair color, the red gloves, puppy purse and necklace. I sewed the fur on the gloves, made the fake cig holder and the puppy print shawl.
Cruella DeVille
My BFF was Tinkerbell. I made the entire dress, jacket, puff balls and purse from hand. We glitterfied her shoes, purchased the wings and wand. I think she makes the perfect Tink:)
