A bit of holiday talk

Quick post today. The read-a-thon fund raiser that our school was doing is on its very last day today. We are having a big celebration and a well deserved one. The kids knocked it out of the park, raising about twice as much as last year when they did wrapping paper sales. For the celebration today, the kids get to dress up as their favorite book character. We are going for the easy costumes. L is Julie from the American Girl series. (T-shirt, jeans, braid in her bangs and a peace necklace). K is going as Ira, from the kids book Ira Sleeps Over. She has her pjs and slippers on and carrying a blanket and teddy bear. It will be fun to see how the kids are all dressing up.
OK, so I mentioned holiday talk in my header. For all of you card makers out there (even if you are not) I wanted to make you away of a little boy that needs some love and kindness. Noah Biorkman is very sick and his parents are planning on celebrating an early Christmas for him this weekend. Noah loves Christmas cards and they are hoping that people can send him some cards. You can read all about it here. Won't you join me in sending him a card or two?
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only 20 days away! I made a place setting for Emma's Paperie that would make the perfect greeting for your guests at the holiday table. Once the meal is over your guest can take their arrangement home.
I have actually taken the name card out of the arrangement and placed it on my end table until Thanksgiving.
Check out the Emma's Paperie blog for the instructions and supply list.
Have a fabulous weekend and wish us luck. K has her first swim meet of the season this weekend. I am looking forward to it. :)
