Where does the time go? Seems that just the other day I was so excited to greet October. I'm going to Brunch today to celebrate my birthday and to Bass Hall this evening to see "The Book of Mormon". I hope you have a wonderful first day of December!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Are you still stuffed from eating all the great food? I am...but I'd love more dressing and pumpkin pie! :)
I know everyone's in the throes of Christmas now so I wanted to let you know that Stacey at Poofing the Pillows is sponsoring a Christmas tour of homes next week, Dec 7 - 11. You've always heard that Texas is BIG and Texans are proud so this is your chance to visit us and enjoy some Texas hospitality! :) I do hope you'll stop by and visit everyone...I think there are about 20 blogs involved.
Thank you, Stacey, for organizing this event!

Want to make a difference with a random act of kindness? Today, Friday, Nov 27, is your day!
One year ago, Travis Thomas from Florida, USA, had a brilliant idea: let's turn Black Friday into RAKand commit as many random acts of kindness as possible. Good news! Hundreds of people joined, turning a simple idea into an annual tradition. We're doing it again, and we need your help.
The Goal: Collectively perform 2,015 random acts of kindness on.
Join: Do an act of kindness on, Nov 27 and post on social media using the hashtag #RAKFriday.

I'm so excited to tell you that Brandye is awake!!!! Now I have no idea for how long but they are doing what is called "sedation vacations" ~ lessening the sedation meds for short periods of time. They removed the sensor which was monitoring the pressure in her brain and skull. They removed the ventilator and did a tracheotomy. This allowed her to be calmer and hopefully avoiding some of the coughing brought on by so much equipment in her mouth. The coughing increased the pressure in her brain and that, of course, was not wanted. She has responded somewhat to a few commands and smiled when Kory talked about the dogs. CT scans are done periodically and another angiogram is planned for after Thanksgiving. Once the blood in the brain is reabsorbed, they will do another surgery to repair the blood vessel.
There's no way to adequately thank each of you for all the prayers, good thoughts and well wishes for her! If you're so inclined, please continue. This is going to be a very long road to travel for her and Kory. I always say there is great power in collective prayer!
This is a precious video I saw on Facebook and just had to share ~ :) Did you know that Barbies can really be mean to little girls? Poor Sophie got in trouble for painting Barbie with her nail polish because Barbie told her to!
