Dress of the week October 29th !

Good  morning  Ladies  ! How  are  you  today ? It  is  a  nice  start  to the  morning  here , the  sun is  coming  up   as  it  has  done  in the  last\  few   days also.   We  have  started   with a   bit  of  frost  but  the  day  warms  as  it  goes on. A  lot of   our  leaves  are  dropping  now.   



I  missed   out on posting  last  week.      When I  was  with you last    we  were  shutting  down our pool  as  u  can see  in the  photo  above .    The  Sunday  was a   kind of  Lazy  day I  must  admit!  The  kids  had  school  until Wednesday  and  then   had  2  days off.    So  then    here is a  surprise.  For  their   mini  break they went to Chicago !    I  had  to  work   so my Sweetie  took    decided  to take   them  !   I also  stayed  home   to mind our  dog.  They left  early on  Thursday  morning  for  the  5.5  hr   trip.   Our  daughter  helped  with the  driving  so  that  was   good   having  2   drivers.   I  kept  busy at  work  , it  was   kind of  nice   when I arrived  home  to  a  quite  house  (  how  bad am I ? )  just  myself  and  the  dog.   They  showed  me  their  hotel  room/apartment  through  video  call  and it  was   very  nice.  I did  get  some  things  done  around  the  house  as  well as  getting out  for  a  bit.   Friday  was a   nice  relaxing  day.   They  explored  some of the  sights  of  Chicago.    They also  had  some  really good  Pizza !   On Saturday  I went  out to the  mall !  I  wore  my  new   dress ,  it  fit  really   well.    I   had  a  nice  time  going  around  the   stores .    I also  went to a   thrift  shop  and  picked up a  new  dress  and  cardigan !    I  had  time  for a   video  chat   with my   Sister   on Saturday  evening, it  was      a  nice   chat.    On Sunday  I  went to  early  Church .    Then as it  was  our  Anniversary  I picked up the   flowers !   I got  roses ,  they  look  gorgeous . 


The  family  arrived  back  at 10am Sunday morning   They  stopped  halfway  in Wisconsin   at  the  dells  Saturday  night  and  went to  a  waterpark.   Our  son had to be  back  for  his  trap team  at  11.30am.   It  was  good  to see  them all  again !   We  had a   quiet  day  at  home   and  then  Monday  came  around  and  they  were  back  at  school  after  the  mini  break. This   week   has   been  a  typical   Monday to Friday.   Tomorrow  us parents are  going  to go out   alone  to  friends  for  lunch should  be   fun !

Dress of the week October 15th !

Good  morning  Ladies !   As  we  go  halfway into  October (already!)  the  weather  has  been  crazy this  week.   Monday  was  in the  70s  ,   Tuesday   got to the  early  80s  and  felt like  summer  .   roll  forward to Friday   and I woke up to SNOW!  It didn’t stick around .    It is  all the  joys  of   living in Minnesota  you  never know  what you  can  get  this  time of  year.

Last Saturday as I said in last post we went top the in-laws town to have family photos taken. It was a beautiful afternoon for fall poses . The lady who took them was really professional and knew how to make the kids smile with her humour . We hope to get them back soon. After photos we went to a local restaurant for an early dinner before the evening rush. We went back to in-laws house for a few hours and got to spend sometime with our nephew Stanley who we got to see walking for the first time. It is only a few short years since our youngest was doing the same. Sometimes I miss that age ! We arrived home late at 10pm. On Sunday we went to 9am church at a next door parish. Our son had trap shooting at 11 am , he does enjoy it.

There was football on tv during the afternoon, our family are big fans. Then the evening was getting the kids ready for school the next day. The week kept all of us busy work , school and on Wednesday evening church class for the kids. I was relieved when Friday came, I was tired at the end of the day ! I could not relax though as we had a scheduled double dinner date with our friends Jordan & Angie scheduled. A nice shower perked me right up again. We picked them up at 6.30pm and drove the short journey to the restaurant. It was fun catching up, talking about their house projects and how the families were doing. It was so good to fall asleep last night I must admit ! Today I have a hair appointment and later we will be shutting down our pool for the year 😦

Dress of the week October 8th !

Good  morning  Ladies!  How  are  you  doing  today ?  The  sun is  just  coming up and it looks  like  being  a   beautiful day.   It is  31f   so in the    frosty area. We  had to turn the  heat on last night.    I do hope  it  will warm  up  again  from  here  though  as  we  go more into October.

Last Saturday   I left off   when  we  were  about to go to  Pinehaven  farm. It  takes  about  an hour to get  there  and  we  arrived  around  10.15am.  The  weather  was sunny  and   the  temps  were  good.   There  was  lots  to see and  do  for  the  kids. There   were  farm  animals that they  got to feed.   They  enjoyed interacting  with them. We  went  then to  the play areas  with tunnel slides.   Then it  was on  to the  corn pit ,  they really had  fun in it.   they were  making  corn angels and all sorts of things !  Then they  went to the  giant  slide . The   boys    raced  down it  a  few  times.   Before we  left  we  went  walking  through  the  corn maze it  was  a  fun  walk. Then the  rain  came  unexpectedly.   We  left  and  went for  lunch at  a  local  restaurant in the  area.

We  arrived home at  2.30pm. Our  daughter  went out to  dinner  with  her  friends  as  part of the  homecoming  celebrations. They all got  dressed up.  She  needed  her  hair  styled and  she looked  good in her  new  dress.   We  had  a  relaxing  Saturday evening, phew ! 

On  Sunday we  were   busy  with  trap team activites  for our  son early.   We  then  had a  nice  afternoon, I  video chatted  with  my parents.    Monday  came   quick  and  we  were  all back to the  grind !    On  Tuesday  our  oldest  son  went to flag football in the  evening.   On Wednesday   they had  their  first  day of  Church class  for the  year.  Thanks to all the  volunteers for   helping in that area ! .   Thursday was  the  last  day of  flag football  for our  son.   He  really likes it and is missing it already !  Today we  are  having  family photos  taken  with all the  extended  family. The  last time our  Nephew Stanley was not  born so it will be   nice to have him in them. My mother-in-law is  excited for them !!

We  had  a  few  busy  days  this  week  after   being  at my in-laws  last  weekend.  We  were all back to work and  school Monday.   This  week  was  homecoming   week , it is  a  celebration  of a  big  football game   for  the  local high  school.  Also past  students  women and  men  come  back  and  are  honored  during the  game.  All the  schools   from elementary  get in on the  party atmosphere  with  pajama  day to crazy sock  day  and  lots of  games.  it  culminates  with a  dance on the  Saturday night  for  high school   and  above. On  Monday  we  sold our old  truck !  After  getting  a  new  bigger  family   car  one  vehicle  had to go !  So  it  was  the oldest .  We  kept our  family car original family  car.    On  Wednesday  evening  we  went to the  homecoming  parade.  It  was  really nice, it last  about  half an hour  with   sports  teams , the  high  school  band and other  organizations  marching, they also handed out an obscene   amount of  candy !! Our  son  marched  with the  trap team although he  is  not in  high  school yet. 

Last   night our  3  older  kids  went to the  homecoming  game  with  their   friends  families. thanks to them for  the invites!  We  had  a little  date  night  with our youngest  son, we  went to Applebees  for  dinner!    The  kids  gradually  got  home  from the  game   one by one and unfortunately our team  lost  34 to  31  in the last 5  seconds ! They  still had  a  fun   night out.
