Luvs2Boat snagging a few calamata olives while his sisters aren't looking!
After dinner we did get to go outside and watch...
this beautiful sunset.
While we were there, Bro discovered Gramm's rocking chair.
Oh, you are wondering about the pot on the doorstep? That pot is leftover from this summer. The thing in the pot is a scarecrow that is leftover from Halloween. Yes, I know, we need a new 'welcome' mat.
Oh – and I updated my profile pic too!
Is anyone else as surprised as I am to realize that Thanksgiving is next week.? If you don't know what you are going to bring to the family get-together, might I suggest Mim's roast pumpkin and couscous salad. It looks mighty delicious! I'm not quite sure what capsicum is but I am sure that any fall harvest vegetables will suffice.
Ta Ta For Now!
It was quite fun to have her sit on my lap as we bid for the item. There were only 9 minutes left to bid on the item when we found it. You could feel the tension in the air. "Oh mommy, oh mommy," she was saying as she was shaking, "I want that sooooooo bad." "Ok, but we can't bid until the last minute," was my calming reply. Once we got down to like 45 seconds then we bid on the item and won. She was so excited! What am I teaching my child?
I told her that it is a Christmas present and that she can't play with the set until Christmas. She told me that I'd better hide the set very well because if she finds it then she is going to play with it. Unlike the Guitar Hero, we are actually going to keep this item hidden until Christmas.Second, Bro is very sick and officially has his first fever. He got his flu shot at his last doctor's visit, took a nap, woke up sick, and has been sick ever since. It's a light fever, but it is a fever nonetheless. Here he is enjoying his new table (pre-fever).
Today I am grateful for the freedom to vote.
For those of you who were wondering how to get all of those feathers on a baby chick costume...
now you know! It wasn't easy. Imagine feathers everywhere!
