All the Favourite Award Recipients are Here!!

Happy Saturday Pixies!

It's been quite a week here in Pixie-land. Canadian Thanksgiving inspired many great ideas for the use of cranberries and nuts to go with the turkey. Thanks to JenR for providing a great recipe (and good luck with those cover letters)!!

Elevated Risk of Mullet award goes to esperanza for this gem "...and pecans (national nut of Texas--unless you're counting GWB).

Our hearts go out to esperanza on the passing of Grandma Pete, whose story we love. We're thinking of you and your whole family as you celebrate Grandma Pete's life.

Hugs to QWP who met her brother's new girlfriend and high fives to baby E for being an adorable social buffer.

The "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!" Award goes to kathy a, whose utter frustration with the powers and principalities in government appears to have brought about a change of heart on their part.

For Miranda, we have the "Coffee and RedB*ll" Award for long work days now that the madness of the shutdown is over (see kathy a's award above). Thanks too for the GF cookie recipe (That's gluten free, not girlfriend, but if the girlfriend likes the gluten-free, that's good too.)

And for our Liz, the "Hey, I Know That Fabulous Woman!" Award, because when she's in the press that's what we're all thinking. Or is that just me? :)

The special "What the Heck?" cluestick goes to stoopid church meeting planners who don't bother to provide child care. Grrrr....

Cheers to all pixies "on the road again", waiting for good news with crossed fingers, and just enjoying another fall weekend!

whining works! Childcare is back, thanks to the efforts of the young whippersnappers and without the approval of the powers that be. Take that, powers that be

Thanks for all the hugs and sympathy, dear friends. The service was fine, we laughed and cried and are glad it's over.

Yay for the return of childcare! And I'm glad that the service went well.
