Simon has been home this entire week with a fever so we will probably be laying low tonight. The plan is to have him put on his costume (Darth Vader of course) and answer the door, give out candy, and maybe visit a couple neighbors if he is feeling up to it.
I will be carving my pumpkins this morning and plan to use some of those tips from you guys on using the drill to create the holes.
A few months back I posted about the Nie Benefit for the Nielson family. I came across a link to a more comprehensive story from the Arizona Republic. It is quite a read: life, sisters, grief, hope, family, etc. If you would like to help the family go here.
Last night I heard about a cool program called Sunshine Albums for Children. Here's a bit of info: "The Sunshine Albums Project is a wonderful opportunity to create an
album for a child who is in the hospital facing illness. Many of the
children in hospitals are there for cancer treatment. The albums are a
way for the children and their families to document their journeys to
wellness." What they are looking for are photo and journal ready minibooks no smaller than 4x4 and no larger than 8x8. You can read more about it and how to donate on Deb's blog.
So excited to see the December Daily 2008 Flickr Group filling up with photos. Very inspiring. I especially love how people are using what they have and just going for it.
I hope you all have a safe evening tonight and a wonderful, creative weekend.
