I've loved the number 11 for as long as I an remember. Which is funny because I hate all other odd numbers. 11 for me is just perfect! And when I saw the date 11•11•11 on the calendar I knew I had to take the day off to celebrate, because this date will not come around again in my lifetime.
But before I go on and on about my love affair with the number 11, November 11th is Veterans Day, an annual holiday that honors military veterans. It is the anniversary signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. So I just want to take this opportunity to honor and Thank all the Veterans out there. Our world would not be the same without you.
A special thanks to my Papa who served in World War II.

These things happen and right now my health is more important then the 11 fun things we had planned. We still did a few of the 11 things...
Like rake the leaves!
(the fun part was supposed to be jumping in the leaves, which they were too wet to do ... tear)And go on a hike in our town!
Do you have a favorite number? Did you make a wish at 11:11 on 11.11.11?? (You still can!)
