I hope you all had a very nice Thanksgiving. I kicked mine off by staying up all night trying to keep Nino comfortable until the doctor's office opened. He had a double ear infection . He just keeps getting hit over and over. My poor little boy. Luckily it was Tuesday night instead of Wednesday night. He was much better as soon as he had a second dose of meds. All was well by Thanksgiving Day.
I was able to finish this painting today. It is a BIG16X20. Up on ebay now.
I have so many little projects I would like to get done around the house. We are slowly tearing our carpet out and replacing it with hardwood. I am working on the stairs to the basement now. Is this how it looks at your house when you try to get something done? Why do kitties LOVE to be right in the middle of things? :)

"The Race" is up on ebay now. I love this one. It is a 5x7 and looks so pretty in a frame.
The next one is a BIG 16x20. It is so hard to get a good picture of paintings this size because I can't use my scanner. Also, it rained all week so no good days to take a picture outside. I do love the cold feel I get from this one. I did little snow flakes all over the scene. Burrr.
Anthony is home sick again from school. He is catching every germ. Poor boy. I do think Foster enjoys the company though.

Don't you just love taking walks in the snow on a moonlit night? How about picking out a Christmas tree on a moonlit night?
I have Christmas trees on the mind lately. It is that time of year. In fact, we have already spotted some up in nearby homes!
I wanted to do a real tree this year, but I am not sure . We have an artificial one that I have never really been happy with. Maybe if I spend the money I would have spent on a tree on a bunch of new lights, I might like it more. Hmmmm. There really is nothing like a real one though.
Here is a picture of my sweet little Boy Scout. We went 'Scouting for Food' for the local food pantry this weekend. Anthony was so proud going door to door in his uniform and everyone was so polite to him. It was a very nice experience.
Well, I hope you all got some rest in this weekend. I plan to tonight. :)

I have nothing new to show this week due to the normal interruptions like this one. Yes, that is orange marker all over her face. I didn't see what she was up to until she came to me asking for orange ears. I screamed first and then made the ears.
A late BIG Thank you to all the Veterans out there, (my father in law)!
Hope everyone is having a good week.

These are my two newest on ebay.
I wanted to share with you a video from All Souls Day Mass. It is impossible to capture how beautiful it is. Every year they light candles on all the graves of a cemetery less than a mile from my house. I tried to sneak a video, but I was right by the generator that was really loud, but you can get the idea. This is not the whole picture. The candles go on and on, but I didn't want to interrupt mass. /:)

Can you guess what Rose and I were for Halloween??
If you guessed Coraline Jones and the 'other mother' you guessed right!
We had such a fun time at my sister Cris's ( Mommy's Midwest Mountain ) house. She had her usual Halloween party. I can't even begin to show you how neat she decorates. It just does not translate on photos.
I do have one photo from the party to share though.
My sister Susan totally takes the prize for best costume.
She came as Edie Beale from the Grey Gardens.
We are all so fascinated with the documentary and movies. If you are a fan of them, you know what I mean. :) Hope you all had a super safe and fun
