Thanksgiving 2015

We celebrated Thanksgiving at our new home this year and it was such a pleasure. Spousal Unit's sister and Tara joined us, as well as Douglas. It was such a lovely evening. I'm just going to picture spam, so enjoy!

As you can see, Tara is still terribly impressed with my picture taking.

November House Night

Some time ago, Rosslyn, Camilla, and I decided to make our own household in the SCA. We have yet to officially register it, but we have begun doing monthly house nights. This November it was held at Rosslyn's house. Camilla, Rosslyn, and I all took over the kitchen.

Douglas, Spousal Unit, and Camilla's SO sat at the table for a long while, but eventually we gave them something to do.

And the band!

Tara had a blast and they did have a beautiful, ethereal sound.


Spousal Unit noticed I hadn't been doing well since the move and decided to surprise me with these beautiful flowers. He made me cry.

Knit Night Matchy-ness!

Rosslyn and Donna ended up wearing matching outfits.

And then pounced Kimberly.
