Anyway, let's move on to the much more cheerful pictures:
Day 249 (Sept 6):
This is my parents' hole in Turtleford. Xander had a great time going to see it with Grandpa and then going back with the rest of us to see it, too. They tell me the hole is now getting filled up with things like walls and floors.
Day 250 (Sept 7):
In Grandma & Grandpa's garden picking wonky coloured carrots (I think these are the purple ones). The boys had fun with that...there were purple, bright orange, light orange and yellow ones. My parents like to grow whatever strange variations they can find!
Day 251 (Sept 8):
Back at home, just chillin' on the couch. I love pictures of the boys just sitting back on the couch like this. They look like such big people but in such miniature proportions...so cute!
Day 252 (Sept 9):
This was the battle du jour. Evan went hungry and sat at the table all night rather than eat one single bite of this pizza. Just a few days before, he had downed several pieces of a similar pizza but he was stubborn this day. He refused to eat it for breakfast the next day and finally had (I think) one teeny tiny bite at the babysitters. I think this child is going to be an "adventure" in the future!
Day 253 (Sept 10):
We went down to the public library this day and got library cards for me and the two boys. We signed up for story time, too. Evan never did get into his but Xander's is a drop-in and since Xander won't let me leave, I've managed to sneak in Evan, too. Quite frankly, Evan enjoys it at least as much as Xander but he's technically a year too young for that one, still. Oh well.
Day 254 (Sept 11):Can you tell I was in a creative slump? These are my sunglasses. I like my sunglasses. Really. That's all there is to this picture.
Day 255 (Sept 12):This is it. The cross-stitch that I did for my sister for her wedding. It is all completed and framed. I really like how it turned out. It took me so long to do this that it is just totally exciting to finally see it in a frame. Sometimes I wondered if it would ever get there!!
Well, that's all the pictures I have ready for now. I'm still a bit worn out from the adventurous weekend! Hopefully Thanksgiving will be a lot quieter.
Until next time...
