So the Acorn Challenge has come to it's close.

Ashley and I had a goal to walk 100 miles from October to Thanksgiving day. The plan was to gather acorns for each mile . Well, we were a bit short and ended up, with 81 acorns, in our jar.
This challenge was still a success, for we walked more than we would have and had loads of fun, along the way!

Our plan was also to make something from the acorns, when we finished. Thanksgiving, flew by, but we do have a couple of ideas. Most likely,we will make a picture frame to go around a photo of the two of us, after walking our first three miles, together.
A spark friend had joined us, with the challenge and gathered pennies for her jar! She did very well, herself! We appreciated having her company and support. emoticon

Here we had the acorns in a medium size container, but enjoyed the day we had to move them to the large!

So now it is time for another challenge! I have a good one, in mind, but that is for another blog.

What challenge will you come up with? emoticon

    Chris you and Ashley did very well. You are both busy and should be proud of getting out there and doing 81 miles, awesome.
Lovely walking path and your decor is so beautiful.

Hugs Mary

    What a beautiful decoration your acorns made! And I love the trail that you and Ashley walked, it's very encouraging to have a nice walking place and to have someone to walk with.
And you encouraged others to do the same Chris!
(p.s ... your blogs still don't show up on our team so I'll subscribe to them so I don't miss them!)

    Hi Chris emoticon to you and Ashley.

I plan to continue with my no desserts and no take out pizza. I made it through Thanksgiving with no dessert.
