It was a great, busy weekend!  We traveled down to my parent’s house on Thursday to stay the night so that  we could be close by to help my sister, Martha, move in to her new home!   We decided to stay Friday night, too, so that we could continue to help her unpack and do more moving in on Saturday.  We got a lot done, but, as anyone who has moved, knows…..unpacking can take years!!!  (Ok, or maybe just months?!)  🙂  What a darling house, Martha!!  Welcome to the world of home-ownership!!  🙂

Sunday afternoon we took the kids out to a pumpkin patch…..boy, did they have a blast!  The had so much fun running (and sometimes tripping!) through the pumpkins and wanted to pick up EVERY one they saw!!


We decided on one H.U.G.E pumpkin that represented mommy and daddy, and Ava and Luke each picked one out that represented them, and we decided on a darling little petite one for Anna.  I also picked out a few sugar pumpkins to prepare and have on hand for baking, and I also picked out some Delicata squash to bake up and freeze for baby food, for Anna.

The kids also went on the tractor “hay” ride with Grandma R. and ran through the hay maze again, and again……and again!! (They didn’t even want to stop for a picture!!)

It was such a beautiful, brisk, crisp fall day and so much fun was had by all!!!


So, here we are, back at another Monday!  How do Mondays always seem to come so quickly?!  It should be another fun, busy week for us!  Luke starts his first day of “Pre” Preschool on Tuesday (just one day a week) and he’s soooooooo excited for that!!  And I’ve started back to work, just one morning a week, doing childcare at a local church during their mother’s meetings.  Here’s to another great week!!

So, here’s what I have planned for the week:

Monday– Chicken Tetrazzini, homemade Buttery Rolls, and Caesar Salad

Tuesday–  THIS Beef Stroganoff over Pasta, Roasted Carrots and Broccoli, Strawberry Jello (Ava’s pick!)

Wednesday–  Roasted Pork Shoulder, Baked Potatoes, and THIS Fresh Corn Casserole

Thursday–THIS Crock Pot Potato Soup (instead of hashbrowns, I’ll use fresh potatoes.  I’ve got a lot to use up!!), and Buttermilk Biscuits

Friday–  THESE BBQ Meatballs, homemade Mashed Potatoes and steamed Broccoli

Have a great one, everybody!!!!
