Veterans Day

Thank you to all of those great people who have served are serving and will be serving for our great country. My father served in the Merchant Marines, my Father in Love served in the US Air Force and at this time I have 2 nephews who are serving in the Marines and Army. I love this country and I am so proud of our military.
This morning on Channel 3 news here in the valley of never ending sun E'lyse was on TV with the dance/singing group she is in. I didn't go so I didn't get to get pictures there but watched her along with the rest of the family as they sang God Bless the USA. She and a few of her friends from the group "Sun Shine Generation" came by so I could get a couple pictures. There were more in the group but they didn't tag along. So here they are: E'lyse, Ashton, John and Alice. John looks a little scared! They did a good job. I was very proud of all of them.

Then I wanted to share with you this picture of the turkey my little girls made. They had made all the fixings for a Thanksgiving dinner out of paper and craft items. But had the turkey being still alive because they thought is was funny. I think he is funny too! His name is Tom. When we lived in Pinetop we were raising turkey for Thanksgiving and Christmas. But the Thanksgiving turkey, named Tom, met a great tragedy with a black bear breaking into his cage. Boy was I mad! Anyway I guess this is the girls way of paying homage to dear old TOM.
Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Totally dorked out.. I was going to tell you about the medicing cabinet frames. I'm not exactly sure how to make a real one... I pretty much fake everything I make. In my last house I found some of that decorative trim at Home Depot.. they have some that look like braids, other with scrolls carved in it...etc. Anyway, my hubby just mitered the corners so they fit together and we glued them straight over the mirror! Worked just fine. You need to use a special glue that will adhere to glass but it was pretty easy. Good luck!
