Happy Thanksgiving
this year we had a small family gathering at our home. On Monday, I took Mia with me to deliver items that we had collected for a local homeless family shelter we have in our area. Our office collected over 300 lbs. of non-perishable items and the back of my car was full to the top!
I made it a point to bring Mia with me this year, as we want her to understand that there are people who are not as fortunate as we are and that we should help whenever we can.
I was so proud of her, she carried items into the pantry area at the shelter and I explained to her that some people have no homes or jobs right now and that this food helps them.
The next morning she walks into my room with a box of crayons and says, " Mommy here, I want to give these crayons to kids to who don't have any"
below is Mia with her guitar which she brought to the nursing home when we
went to visit Abuelo and sang 'Happy Thanksgiving' to him.

Thanksgiving is always at my Mom and Dad's house and this is a picture of the table.

It looked soooo pretty!

Sleep Over!
last night Mia had her friend Cayla spend the day with us and she had her first sleep over. The girls had a good time. We met up with some of Mia's other friends at the Chili Cookoff and then headed to Steak N Shake for some yummy burgers and of course milkshakes! We enjoyed having Cayla for the day and night and can't wait for future sleepovers!

Camera Fun!
I have been taking more and more photos of Mia and to be quite honest with you, I LOVE my subject so much, it makes it fun! I put together a blog of my favorite shots which I am gathering to submit to be accepted by a stock photo agency who licenses and sells prints for you. In order to be an accepted artist, I have to put together a compilation of photos for them to check out and 'accept' me! All of those shots are raw and unedited. check it out...... wish me luck! It is has been a life long dream to do something that I enjoy SO much!

HaLloWeEn FuN!
Mia's school had a costume party this year and then we had a little
inpromptu party at our house on Halloween night! Mike and I decided to join in on the fun because the parents were going to dress up as well. If you see my picture below, my booty was courtesy of Mia's hello kitty pillow which she caught me stuffing into my pantyhose and was a little upset : 0 ))

Father Michael....hahaha
