There’s nothing like warm chocolate chip cookies, especially after a day at school. The kids loved coming home to these!
It rained all night and was very cold. We got a call that Beth’s field trip was canceled and she was so disappointed. I got her off on the bus and was doing some exercising, when I got the call that the weather had cleared up and that the field trip was still on. So I rushed to get dressed and headed down to the school and was just in time to walk with the kids to PumpkinLand. It’s so fun that it’s so close to Beth’s school. It was fun to be with Beth and get to know her classmates just a little bit. I enjoyed watching Beth play. It ended up being the warmest day of the week.
We have had a cold front here in Utah all week and its been a lot darker in the mornings. After I walked the kids down to the bus stop and got them off to school, I felt like walking. So I walked around for about 1/2 hour, enjoying the silence and time to myself. It felt incredibly early since the street lamps were still glowing. It was just a very beautiful morning – I love it when its overcast. Later, I did some shopping and got to go to Olive Garden for lunch with Joey. A really good day.
So cold this week. It really does feel more like winter than fall. Today was the perfect day for a little hot chocolate, raman, and some family movie time! It’s that time of year when we watch Nightmare Before Christmas a few times! 🙂
I was excited to see a beautiful yellow leaf on my lawn today. It seems like the trees around where we live, always start to change colors a little later than the others.
We went to see Dolphin Tale as a family today and we all loved it. A great emotional story and family show. Later we got to have Mallory come and be with us for awhile. She’s so adorable and it was so fun to watch HER watch Tangled. She made us all laugh when she got the giggles throughout the movie. So cute!
Joey had had a gout attack this week and so he has spent most of his time at home. I hate that he’s having such pain, but it has been nice to have him home all week with me. He was able to get into work a little bit this week and his brother helped him move to his new office space. It looks like we are going to have a rough fall every year, as that is when his gout attacks seem to happen. Joey is sporting some of JJ’s Halloween costume that I bought this week! I love seeing his bright blue eyes popping out!
We got to go to a baby blessing today. My friend Brianne, blessed her Isaac today. It was great to see her and great to see her new little boy. Joey’s mom also showed up today to spend the night so it was fun to have her with us too. A very eventful day.
And here is my weekly layout:
