5th Annual Orphan's Thanksgiving

This year's orphan's Thanksgiving had a Mexican Theme! We put up a tent on the roof deck again this year and had about 16 people over, including Marlon! We had a ton of food, everyone brought enough food to feed an army. I think this might be the first year we had more food that wine! :) Although we finished about 13 bottles. The guest list included: Donald, Paulie, Dale, Angela, Andrea, Juan, Chinary, Tyrel, Robin (6 Years old and awesome), Margit, Jeremy, Erin, Hassan, Katt, Voltron and Pinecone, Plus Sunil, myself, Marlon, Cody and Anna. So much fun!!!

We had a little drama the next day around 12:30 when the 10x10 tent complete with the walls, blankets we hung on the walls for insulation, and the lights we hung took a big fat flight off the roofdeck!!!! One big gust of wind and the SOB was over the top! It landed in our building's back yard which is only accesible through our neighbor Melanie's apartment. She wasn't home! I emailed her and she luckily gave us permission to go through her apt to collect the wreckage. Luckily it wasn't so bad. The tent did break :( The sound shop Sunil used to work with let us use it, I guess now we own it and will replace it for them :) Totally worth having the tent though.

are some pics! To see all the pics, just click on the title of this blog and it will take you to the photos!!

Halloween




So we don't have a picture of our Halloween costumes because our camera was dead and we are waiting for our friend Dale to send us some. However, we do have a picture of Marlon and her very first Jack O Lantern she carved all by herself.

Making History by Voting!

You can't really see from here, but the line I'm in stretches up the street to the left heading to the next corner, just to vote! I've never been so excited to stand in line! It was a happy line too! I live in historic Sugar Hill in Harlem so the block we were waiting in line on had beautiful architecture. Plus is was close to 60 degrees so it wasn't a bad wait. The line moved along quickly, about 45 minutes, and I walked away so excited to be part of a historic vote. PLEASE VOTE, if you haven't already, you should! I've never seen the turn out that I've seen today. Amazing.
