November 2007


Today is the last day of NaBloPoMo, thank goodness!

It’s been a little tough. I could have written more about the boys, I’m sure. But I’m a little slow on the picture uploading thing, and a little lazy, I suppose. But I don’t want to bore everyone with all of the little intricacies of our […]

I admit it…

…I’m not a huge Packer fan. As a matter of fact, I don’t know if I’ve seen 10 minutes, cumulative, of Packer games this year. I don’t really know why. I like football. I’m loyal to my state. I’m glad when they win. Mostly, I’m happy when they win because then my husband is happy! […]

Three more to go

I will be glad when this NaBloPoMo stuff is over. I’m already out of the running for any kind of prize since I missed a day early this month. And I started a day late. Ah, well. There’s always next year. Maybe.


Okay, I know I live in Wisconsin, by choice, and I’ve lived here my whole life, and it’s going to get a lot colder before it gets warm again, but BRRRRRRR!!!

It was 17 degrees on my car thermometer as I drove home tonight. I’m just not ready for this. If it’s going to be […]

Jingles is here

Jingles the elf has arrived at our house. She came with a letter saying that she is here to watch over the boys and to see if they’re naughty or nice during the day. At night, she returns to the North Pole to report to Santa. I’m not sure how well it will work, but […]

Turkey day pics

I figured I could post some pictures from our weekend. Here’s a sampling:

 This is the front door to their house. This picture doesn’t do the house any justice. It’s beautiful inside! Craftsman/Frank Lloyd Wright influences throughout. And windows galore! It’s amazing!

   The kids played Wii quite a bit. Noah beat […]

Being home after a great Thanksgiving weekend with family:Â priceless

Shop ’til you drop

I did it. I ventured out with my mom, aunt, 2 cousins-in-law, and my first-cousin-once-removed on Black Friday. Yes, I’m a little crazy.

We left the house around 6:00 am. After a stop at Panera for one of their yummy quiches, we went to Kohl’s, JCPenney’s, Joanne’s, Best Buy, Target, lunch, Home Goods, Toys R […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

It has been chaos around here today. There are 10 adults and 9 children, and one dog running around. Well, the kids and dog are doing most of the running. We’ve had several bumps, scrapes, and bruises (mostly to Noah!). There has been a lot of screaming, mostly in fun.

But overall, this has been […]

We made it!

It only took 7 hours!Â

We made three stops:Â one bathroom break, one dinner break, and one gas/bathroom break.

We kept entertained:Â the boys watched two movies, I played the alphabet game 3 times (“Q” in Dairy Queen, “antiques,” and KQ-something for some radio station), Andy played the alphabet game once (it took him […]
