We were up in Cambridge, Wis. today to see our son Mike and our granddaughter Emily. While my HB was helping Mike with a house chore, Emily and I went for a walk. She just turned 5 on Sept. 21th. We had such a good time, looking for pumpkins and scarecrows. We stopped at a bakery and got a cookie. After that we walked down by the creek and threw in some rocks.
What a wonderful day. Oh, it was so hard to leave her and come back home, but at the same time I was still smiling on the way home. I could still feel her little hug and kiss goodbye.

I feel like we need some smiles around here today.

My boys playing together made me smile. Aidan somersaults and Callum laughs so hard.

My goofy husband. It's not quite 60 degrees here today and when the temps tell us it's time to dress for fall, my husband just hates it. I think, if he could, he'd wear shorts on Christmas day. Anyhoo, I looked out the window a while ago and saw him as he was walking up the driveway after getting the Sunday paper.

There he was...shorts, sneakers, tee-shirt and a long-sleeved flannel camouflage shirt. He looked so silly! I guess he figured if the shirt was camouflage no one would be able to see him.

WHAT???
NOW you tell me my camouflage isn't working?

How come I was able to sneak up on you in the kitchen last night?

As a matter of fact, I'm standing behind you right now.

(excuse us for a minute folks, we'll be back later) HA, HA, HA, HA!

We went to Costco day before yesterday. We passed by the flowers and Aidan said "Mom! I want to buy you some flowers!" I distracted him with some talking and headed for the checkout line. We're standing there and Aidan is sitting in the grocery cart, he rests his head on my hand, looking sad. I asked him why and he said he was sad because he wanted to buy me flowers. What a sweet guy. I explained to him that dad needs to take him to buy me flowers. I came out of my rehearsal today to find Aidan holding a bouquet of flowers with a big smile on his face.
