Week 46

Here we go again.  It's another Tuesday and it's a wet one with the first winter storm of the season. Last week was nice and short thanks to the long weekend. We need more of those.  At least Thanksgiving break is right around the corner. The boys and I have the whole week off with no real plans.  I can't wait!  Now to get through the rest of this week.  I have a lot of things to tie up at work before I can take time off, but at least that will make the week fly by or so I hope.

Here's a look at last week's pictures:

Day 315-  Monday, 11/11/13
On this Veteran's Day the water polo team had their last game for the high school season.  Here they are before and after the game.  Sadly they lost in a very close match, but they went out fighting and most certainly didn't make it easy for the other team.  Look at those bleach blonde boys--such a great group of guys that did us proud.

Day 316- Tuesday, 11/12/13
It's getting colder here in the afternoons so when I get home from work this kitty boy want to curl up in my lap and share some body heat.  I'm not sure how comfortable this position is, but he stayed here and slept for a bit until I had to move.

Day 317- Wednesday, 11/13/13
Spaghetti!--that's what's for dinner and also a little wine ;0)  I like the words of wisdom printed on the cork of this one.

Day 318- Thursday, 11/14/13
When we get home from school the younger boys take turns unlocking the door.  Justin has it down, but Brandon still struggles with the proper way to orient the key and which way to turn for the different locks. He'll be a pro in no time though.

Day 319- Friday, 11/15/13
Time for an early evening walk during the "golden hour".  The sun feels so good on this chilly day and look at all those fall leaves!  It won't be long before the trees are completely bare at this rate.

Day 320- Saturday, 11/16/13
Ugh!  Some of those trees loosing leaves also have really big thorns they are dropping.  The thorns are seriously like thumb tacks and are ruining Tyler's bike tires.  He came home Friday with one flat tire and by this morning the second one had deflated too.  3 thorns were pulled out of the first tire and 2 out of the second which means a repair today.

Day 321- Sunday, 11/17/13
It's time for our annual family pictures so we spent a good chunk of our day here at the mall.  So glad that's done for another year.

Wait!  One more--

November's Family Photo

Here's one of the fun shots we took during our photo session.  It's not the one I'll put up on the mantle, but I still had to get a copy because we all had a blast posing for it, and I love that you can see that in the kid's faces.

Now we're done--at least until next week ;0)  Hope to see you then.



  1. Sounds like another great week! That family photo is too stinkin' cute! I still need to figure out what we're going to do for a family photo this year.

  2. Love that family photo! That would be super fun to pose for! Looks like a great week! That is a pretty impressive water polo team! Hope you have a wonderful week!

  3. What a fun week...there is a lot of life in your home which is so good. BUT I have to say, you rocked the wine image...cork was awesome. Have a great week and thanks for stopping to say goodbye.
