The annual AWC Christmas Banquet was tonight. The Student Council did an excellent job of decorating. We enjoyed seeing all the new couples that you will soon hear about. The food was great topped off with Mrs. England's pies...sooo delicious.

It Did Not Run Away!

Andrew was pretty proud of this gingerbread boy that we made. Although he made a point of telling me that the gingerbread boy was not alive, he watched to make sure that it did not run away.

Finishing the Kitchen

I am slowly fixing up our room at a time. My husband recently painted the kitchen for me, and I put up some decorations. Then during Thanksgiving I was able to sew curtains for it. The cloth I used for the curtains matches my dishes (pfaltzgraff--orleans pattern). I found the cloth on ebay.

The picture is a puzzle that my neighbor, Rev. Edwin Manners, put together. China cupboard is from my Grandma Mcpherson's Aunt.
