November Friendship Flower 08

Well October and Halloween are over and November is rolling in.....In canada we celebrate Remembrance day Nov 11. I know the United States have Thnaksgiving to look forward to and I believe they also have a Memorial Day this month. We are starting to feel the chill of winter in most North American towns while our friends down under start enjoying the warmer temps that summer brings.

So what are your special plans for the month????

Hugs debbie

Well Hello November! I was in the middle of posting my halloween photos when the thread was closed, just my luck. So I'll try again.
The first photo is of my son Nick as Death, my grandson Maddic as a pirate and my daughter Alexis as the werewolf. The next photo is my grandson Maddic. The third photo is ME as the werewolf. [Mom's gotta have fun!] The fourth one is my son Nick as Death [Grim Reaper] at someone else's house trick or treating but it was a creepy house and he sure looks creepy. The last pic is later on of my daughter Tiffany, her son and my grandson Maddic & Me. Of course my hair looks blonde again since the red has all faded out. I did use a permanant color but it doesn't seem to want to stay!
I hope you all had a spooktactular Halloween too!!

Fish, when I have colored my hair dark, it won't stay. Are you a natural blonde? I am... wondered if that is why.

A large newspaper called me tonight, wanting a live interview, next week. We are excited about it. A challenge is the reporter wants to interview friends/family who have seen the change in dd since Stuie came into our lives. That will be tricky. I don't know who to ask..... I posted on my blog about it. Maybe someone will want to give (nice) input? God will provide.
Don't stay were you are tolerated, go where you are celebrated!

It appears that everyone had a terrific Halloween.

My plans this month is to get through the semester and survive. We hope to find a place to live in Oklahoma City and I hope to find a company that will move our mobile home for a decent price as DH is VERY attached to it. I found several psychologists in Oklahoma City so maybe I can get one to take me as an intern.

My main concern is finding a thesis idea or I won't graduate next December.

Fish some awesome ghouls you have there and quite a good looking grandson.

My plans for November is to get my flower beds ready for winter and make it through Thanksgiving.And get my Christmas shopping started and finished before the end of the month.
Life is what you make it,so make it countThe best things in life are free so why do we worry so about money!!!

For us the big month is October with 3 birthdays, one for every Sunday of the month so now its just coasting through Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Deb K-maybe you are thinking of our Veteran's Day? It's on the 11th.

Work is going better-but the machines don't seem to want to cooperate, well, I wanted to work with machines more than people and so far I don't see much improvement in either category! lol!

Felicia-you have all the fun! Our daughter had a football game so our Halloween was putting a basket of candy outside the door and lighting the pumpkins up.

No special plans here. Ds's birthday is the 26th, hope to get over to see him the weekend before.

October was a big birthday month here too. Also 1 every week for 3 weeks. Ds's b-day is on Halloween, we love it.

I can't beleive it's Nov. already, I'm not even ready for the holidays.

It's hard enough just dealing with everyday stress and here comes some more. I get too overwhelmed.
