Fond Farewell's and Happy Hello's!

Goodbye soccer.

We'll miss you.
In honor of Damon's last game I thought I should share my favorite picture of the year. When you know that no one was hurt I hope you will be able to laugh as much as I have.

Goodbye hunting! (Finally!!!)

Tyler might miss you.
I always have to take at least one hunting trip each year and this one sure was memorable. But the best news is we were done opening day! I cheered everytime someone mentioned it.

Also this weekend we got to celebrate Mylee's 2nd birthday with her and Brady and Elise and lots of family and friends. We were so glad to see them and excited for the next two months. They are here all the way from Des Moines.

So Much....

to say, so much to do.
We have been a little under the weather around here. But I think finally today, we are feeling energized and much better. Especially after my trip to the chiropractor this morning. It may have taken 2 hours!!! but I think it was worth it. I am always having problems with my super tight neck and shoulders, but last night, while watching "Hocus Pocus,"
and eating this yummy, crunchy, chocolatey popcorn, my jaw started hurting so bad! Now, if you know me, you know I talk a lot, I eat a lot, and I eat often. So, jaw pain is not something I could tolerate for very long. I think the "crack, crack, crack" (x's 30, at least) did the trick. I can now chew/talk/sleep in peace. Yay!
Since I have had lots of time to lounge around the house I have managed to find a home for my cute little owls.

And, come up with some Christmas decorating ideas. I am going to make a bunch of these tissue paper balls to put all over the house. I got the idea from our guest room and just did a much smaller, Christmas colored version.

This is what I like to call the "R&R." Open for buisness. The R&R is not a B&B, however, we do provide a bed...., and breakfast. So, stop by any time. WE LOVE VISITORS!

Here is a close up of the orbs. I love them. And, they are quick and easy to make. Plus inexpensive. I also love our new wall color. The top is called Parmesean and I really wanted to lick it off the brush, mmmm!

I really need to move on to matters at hand. Damon wants to be a robot for Halloween and I haven't even started that. And, I have a party on Thursday and I don't know what I am going to do either.

Damon offered to let me borrow this chef's hat he brought home from Primary yesterday. Hmm! Maybe, but I am still open to other ideas. Do you have any? I need help!

D & E

Damon only had school on Mon. and Tues. this week and I love having him home. So does Ellie. They have so much fun together. When Damon gets home from school Ellie runs to him and says, "hug." Then on days when she leaves before he gets home he is sad.

Damon likes to help her with his toys.

Ellie likes to help him answer the spider man phone.
Ellie doesn't seem to mind that we mostly just have boy toys.

And, most of the time Damon is making her laugh!
Except when he is making her cry.
