Thanksgiving 2010

I can't believe Thanksgiving has come and gone already. Even though my dad was out trucking across the country, we had a very nice Thanksgiving, with dinner at my mom's on Thursday and my uncle's house on Friday. I made a pretty delicious apple pie (above), too.
Camri and I got a bit of shopping done. Orders of the website have been coming in like crazy all day, so it seems like everyone else has been getting a start on their shopping, as well.
Camri has been asking to put up the tree for about three weeks now, so I think we will do that this week. We have always put my grandma Sue's tree up first, but since she is in Arizona now, she will have to miss that this year...
Things are super busy in the office right now. We have to have the December issue done by next Friday, so I guess I should get to work!

Goodbye, December Issue...

I just uploaded the corrections from the blueline of the December issue, which means that I am officially starting on January. What? When did this happen?
I hope everyone enjoys the Christmas Gift Guide in the December issue. We collected 19 items that mule and donkey lovers will love so you don't have to work so hard to find the perfect gifts this Christmas.
The December cover is one of my favorites. I smile every time I look at it!
A special thanks to everyone who sent in photos after our request for them on Faceb
ook. The response was overwhelming! I will have to remember Facebook the next time I am in a jam.
It is my grandma's last full week here in Missouri. After Thanksgiving, she is driving out to Arizona for three months.
I am in the middle of doing my web design for the month. I've got the features up, and the classifieds and picture page ads. I still have the calendar of events to do. I really have to be motivated to work on that page, though....
Speaking of Christmas...I am considering getting Camri a "Gypsy Tail" for Shedaisy for
Christmas. I know she would flip for it. I am thinking pink. We are growing her mane out this winter, so I might get one for her mane and her tail.
Here is the link for more about Gyspy Tails:

I have been so busy, I have barely had time to ride. But that should change now that things have slowed down a bit, thank goodness.

More Funny Man Eye Candy....

You are welcome.

Jon Hamm and His Adorable Dog

Oh, man. I didn't think Jon Hamm could do anything to make me love him more...but he did.
Le sigh...

Gaga's In The House...

We had a great Halloween! Of course, Camri got more candy than she can eat. It was chilly, but she was exhausted after her long weekend (she was a flower girl in her uncle's wedding on Saturday), so once the sun went down, we headed back to the house.

We are busy working on the December issue. Deadline was yesterday, so it will be pretty crazy around here until about next Friday. We are doing something a little different this year in the December issue, so I hope it works out well.

If you are looking for a mule sale to go to this weekend, the Kelso's are having their fall sale in Mayfield, Kentucky on Friday, November 5.
