What's Going On......

Seems like in a blink of an eye, someone hit the fast forward button and Christmas is nearly upon us!  Here is a quick-at-a-glance what's been going on at Acorn Cottage in a NUTSHELL!!!!!
We went to Powell Pumpkin Patch....in the bug-dee-do. My daughter Nadia and boyfriend Josh found couple doozies!
My son Faris finding the PERFECT pumpkin!
Flew out to California for my nephew Brent & Sarah's Wedding.....LOVEY DOVEY!!!
Hopefully this handsome couple is NEXT (hint, hint) my newphew Bruce and his lovely girlfriend Tanya :)
My nephew Aaron, his beautiful wife Ghea and my grand niece Ava....speaking of Ava.....
Found out my grand niece Ava, is going to be an "older' sister.........and is going to have a sister!!!! .......
and Ava and her soon to be born sister will be busy playing with their cousins,
Catherine & Bryson
along with cousin Caitlyn!
I also
                        celebrated my Birthday November 27th......               
It was a Hercule Poirot Party.....and my son Faris stole the show, we were all in hysterics!
My daughter Nadia came home from college to celebrate Thanksgiving....
and we are working on making dough ornaments....mine are enchanted mushrooms and owls :)
The painting process is still "in progress"
My daughter Nadia has this down to a science!
Dan the Man and I also celebrated our 11 year anniversary!  I love you sweetie! XOXOXOX
The elves around here have been hard at work since then....decorating and Christmas shopping, wrapping gifts, getting cozy beds together, anxiously awaiting the celebrations around the corner.
There have been many visit to Starbucks to help keep up the momentum, and many nights spent by the fireside, enjoying looking at the twinkle lights and listening to Christmas music.....taking a deep sigh and being so very thankful for all that we have!
