Well, we’ve been sick over here for a couple weeks now. I’m so tired of being 24 hour nurse. And now that I’m not feeling well, I’m really tired.
So, here’s a recap of what’s been happening, chronologically, in pictures…
Max turned 3 at the beginning of October,
but we didn’t have cake and gifts ’til about a week later.
Here’s a picture of some of the crazy weather we’ve been having. Dramatic fluctuations in temperature, but for the most part, it’s warm. Lots of wind and really interesting clouds.
Clark got a DOT dirt bike helmet so he’s safer when riding to school on the back of Nate’s scooter. He was excited.
Veronica had her first band concert. There are, like, 250 kids in her 6th grade band.
Here’s Max eating a Honeycrisp apple the size of his head
We finally celebrated Max’s birthday
Abby had some friends over to get ready for a Halloween dance
Here’s the boys watching the Avengers. We’re big fans over here.
Liv decided she was tired of being a redhead, so we dyed her hair brown
I finally made a recipe I’d been wanting to try. It’s Dutch Oven Artisan bread, and it’s amazing. It also makes fantastic croutons, which is good since the Costco down here doesn’t carry the croutons I like, and I really DON’T like the typical, grocery store variety.
In late October, Liv, Veronica and I drove an hour + west to Enchanted Rock to watch my sister and her boyfriend in a rock climbing competition. It’s a beautiful place, granite everywhere, and we hiked around for over 7 hours. It was fantastic.
Veronica played at the last high school football game of the season in something they call Bandorama. Here she is, warming up. I didn’t get a picture of the actual performance.
and while we were waiting around, I took some photos of Liv.
The weekend before Halloween, we had the party at church. Clark was the Hulk this year.
I took first place in the chili cook off with a white chili recipe my sister-in-law has graciously shared with the family. It wins all the time.
Here’s my sister playing some Taylor Swift and singing with Liv
and my nephew, Solomon and Anne’s boyfriend, Roland
We had our pumpkin carving party again this year, tho’ it’s our first in Texas. A smallish group, but it was really fun.
I found these super-cool old guitar stools on Craigslist for cheap
Here’s a picture of my sister and Roland on their way to a wedding. I’m guessing the bride didn’t appreciate the competition… jk
My dear, dear husband turned 41. Wow. 41. So weird.
and a rare photo of Abigail! And she’s actually smiling!
Finally, (and I mean finally), here’s Solomon, Liv, and Max playing around on the driveway.
See how gorgeous and warm it is? And it’s NOVEMBER!!! Awesome.
Ok, so that’s it from me. I feel crappy, so I’m not overly witty and interesting today. Later!
