Week 46

Welcome back and happy Tuesday!  It's the last week of school before Thanksgiving break which seems unreal, but I'm ready for the break--not so much ready for the holiday but ready for some downtime with the family.  I just need to make it through this week!

Until then here are last week's pictures:

Day 314- Monday, 11/10/14
Justin has been a big help walking the dog lately.  Our afternoons are so busy, and it gets dark so early now that when we're crunched for time I know I can count on him to step up and at least take this one thing off our plate.  Bella is grateful too ;0)

Day 315- Tuesday, 11/11/14
We're home for Veteran's day and it's chilly out so donuts and hot cocoa are in order!  Thanks to all that serve to protect and fight for our country. 

Day 316- Wednesday, 11/12/14
We've had lots of cloudy skies and trees in transitioning color here.  It's great to finally have fall in our neck of the woods.

Day 317- Thursday, 11/13/14
It's 10 pm and were dropping this adventurous boy off for a red-eye flight to Washington DC.  He's all smiles and ready to take on the world.  Have a good trip Tyler.  We'll see you in a few days.

Day 318- Friday, 11/14/14
Brandon's been having Bella sit and pose for him so he could draw her portrait.  Of course she doesn't sit still for long, but he still did a great job capturing her cute little face.

...And on the other side of the country Tyler is enjoying his time taking in the sights of DC before being sequestered in a convention center for the next couple days.  It's nice and clear there with beautiful blue skies but super cold!  He's not in California anymore ;0)

Day 319- Saturday, 11/15/14
It was cold and extremely foggy this morning, so much so that tennis got cancelled because of wet courts, but after the fog lifted the sun came out, and it was an amazingly nice afternoon.  I took advantage of the warm sunshine and got some much need pruning done in the backyard. 

Day 320- Sunday, 11/16/14
John and I went out to breakfast this morning which is something we haven't done in a really long time.  It was a nice way to start the day.

Later in the afternoon we had the water polo banquet and since Tyler couldn't be there his team kindly posed for a picture I could send him.  Everything about this shot is pure awesomeness, and he got a huge kick out of it.  I love these boys and how much they love my son.  For those that don't know Tyler's water polo nickname is Eggnog.  LOL!

That's it for now! Thanks for stopping by and see you next week.

    That's awesome that Tyler sent you some pics so you can include those. I hope he has a GREAT time!
    That's funny that his nickname on the polo team is eggnog. :)

  3. Looks like Tyler is having a great trip! I love the photo the water polo team posed for. That's great that he has such good friends. Love the breakfast date photo, too! It's been a while since my hubby and I have been able to do that.

  4. Your donuts and hot cocoa look yum! Looks like Tyler is having a fun time! going out to breakfast is a good idea! I will have to copy you on that sometime. How did Tyler get the nickname eggnog? :) Have a great a week!
