Week 43

It's Tuesday again and the weeks just keep flying by.  We're heading into the holiday season which means the year will be over before we know it.  I do love this time of year but hate how quickly it zooms by.  It's time for some more rain which is great because it also means more snow in the mountains and we want another good ski year.  Keep it coming!

Here are last week's pictures:

Day 291- Monday, 10/17/16
Bella and I found more colorful leaves on our evening walk.  It's such a nice fall day and we can't get enough of it.

Day 292- Tuesday, 10/18/16
Homework today happened at the Starbucks in Target because our home WiFi was out for over 6 hrs.  Most of Brandon's homework this year is done on the computer in google classrooms so internet access in a must.  At least our location had sweet treats.

Day 293- Wednesday, 10/19/16
Brandon found his costume this year in our Halloween box so, score!--no need to buy a new one.  I think both John and Tyler wore this costume in the past so we have gotten our money's worth.

Day 294- Thursday, 10/20/16
I'm done voting and will mail in my absentee ballot this week.  Does this mean I no longer have to watch all those annoying political ads?  I'm so sick of them and can't wit until this election is over.

Day 295- Friday, 10/21/16
Justin thought he wanted to be a scarecrow this year but then found this Pumpkinhead costume and couldn't resist. He loves the gloves just as much as the mask.  I'm pretty sure neither of my kids have seen the movies they selected costumes from but that's ok--no need for nightmares.

Day 296- Saturday, 10/22/16
While I was with Justin learning all about caring for rabbits at the Front Street Shelter, Tyler sent us a picture of him at the Rose Bowl enjoying UCLA's homecoming game.  I sure miss seeing that big smile on a daily basis.

Day 297- Sunday, 10/23/16
What a busy weekend day!  John went for a morning ride, I made Sunday cinnamon rolls for the boys, and later Bella got a good wash down.  She's not a huge fan of the bath but at least it was a nice sunny day for it.  Rain expected late tomorrow!

That's it.  See you next week on the first day in November--yikes!  The good thing is that it means only a few more weeks until Tyler is home for a visit over Thanksgiving.  I can't wait to see him in person.


  1. busy week full of fall fun! I agree the season is my fav but zooms by!!
    Enjoy your Halloween fun!

  2. I want your Sunday cinnamon roll recipe! Yum! Love seeing Tyler! I know exactly what you mean about counting down the days to Thanksgiving. We are going out to see Abigail then too. Love the fall leaves and colors. Amazing how we take wifi and internet for granted, huh? Good thing you had a fun place to go do homework! Have a great week!

  3. Those cinnamon rolls look DIVINE!!!
    That Pumpkinhead mask is CREEPY looking!!!
