Down to the Wire and Counting

We're getting down to the wire with our current project of scarves and shawls for cancer survivors. The Chicks spent the afternoon attaching our labels to everything.
Kathleen worked on a pair of mittens for the inventory.
Sheila and Barbara strung the labels and attached them to items while we swapped stories about our Thanksgiving dinners with our families.
Elaine and Karen made sure the laundering instructions were clearly written out for the recipients of our handiworks.
The evening gathering was in charge of sorting and counting the collection. Judy and Joyce tallied 22 fleece wraps, 19 shawls, 24 scarves, a pair of fingerless mitts, 2 hats, and 1 lap robe.
We still have some items in the process of finishing up, so our final total will increase by a few more before they go to NY Oncology and Hematology.

On the Thanksgiving front....while I was preparing our turkey breast for dinner my family noticed something very odd. You know that commercial for a credit card company that shows everyday items with faces, both happy and sad? Well, you just tell me if this doesn't look like one pitiful turkey face after a barroom brawl!
After dinner we worked off the stuffing with a few songs from the new Beatles Rock Band game. Moose loves playing instruments and kept perfect time on the drums.
He loves playing guitar too but he dances around so much it's hard to get a photo of him that's not blurry! He asked for a guitar for Christmas so we'll have to wait to see if Santa brings him one. You never know....
