Some big things!

It has been exciting weekend this past weekend and Thursday just happens to be my most favorite holiday of all, so we have a big one coming ahead.

So the three big things happening in our lives right now:

1.  My sister had her baby boy last night!  Elias Warren Stevens (Eli) was born at 9:01p last night.  He weighed 8 lbs 2 oz. and is 20 3/4 inches long.  He is SUPER cute and we are all very excited at his arrival.

2.  I opened my etsy shop Handcrafted by Melissa Kaye over the weekend.  I had a very successful weekend at a Holiday Boutique that my friend Andrea hosted at her house and have now decided to expand to etsy.com and local craft fairs and boutiques.  My etsy site is melissakaye.etsy.com and I will keep you all updated about any craft fairs I decide to participate in.

3.  On the morning of Thanksgiving our little family of 5 will be participating in The Walk to End Hunger at the Mall of America.  All proceeds go towards our local foodshelf, Neighbors, Inc.  Our goal is to raise $250 ($50 each) and right now we have raised $55.  If you would like to sponsor us, click on this link: Our Walk Website.

That's all for now...life is crazy busy around here!

I'm with you, Thanksgiving is my favorite-est holiday all year. . . I must find the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving DVD to watch this week. I love when the kids decide they're not old enough the make the turkey, so they make toast and serve jelly beans and pretzels instead. OMG, I love it so much! Let me know how the etsy stuff goes :) And congrats on becoming an auntie again!
