Good morning Ladies and happy November to you ! The year is going by so fast and now that halloween has passed the next big one for me is Christmas ! But I am looking forward to Thanksgiving coming as we are hosting it this year in our new home. The weather has been beautiful for early November in Minnesota . The more fall i can get the better !
Last Saturday we went to an Orchard to meet extended family (18 0f us !) for annual photos. Ever since they were young, my Mother-in-law has been getting pictures of all the Grandkids on this one bench in the orchard. This year we arrived and the bench is gone !! They did some rearranging there but we found another pretty spot to take the pics and it all went well. The apple picking was finished for the season but you could go into their shop for some and other treats. It was not a cold day but as soon as I got into the shop I knew i needed a hot apple cider ! It did not dissapoint and was so good. After the orchard we went to a kid friendly winery about 10 minutes away. It had outdoor seating and the day was nice to sit out in. They also had a mobile brick oven Pizza truck on site to tide us over before dinner. The kids were able to play board games or run in the big field attached and we were able to keep an eye on them. There were soft drinks for the kids , and most adults sampled their wines which were good to sit and chat with. We went to a nice new restaurant a few miles away for dinner . They had pull tabs there where u need to match 3 symbols. My Sister-in -law won $100 ! We discussed Thanksgiving plans and then parted to go our seperate ways after a nice day.
Sunday was a nice quiet day . We did not do anything too strenuous! Then it was back to work and school for us all for another week. On Friday our oldest son turned 12!! I still cannot believe it ! We went out to a new restaurant for dinner. On Saturday morning (Yesterday)we took delivery of a new couch ! We splurged a bit . Then we went and got some lumber for our basement project ! We are making a bedroom and bathroom down there to ad d more space and give our daughter her bedroom. We also did yardwork cleaning up leaves. Then in the evening there was bowling for our son along with friends to celebrate his birthday. Quite a day !!
