Goal Accomplished!!

I think she likes it!!

Finally, I've finally accomplished my goal of turning the spare room/computer room into Avery's playroom. Next step, buying a laptop computer so we can move the desk and filling cabinet out of the playroom.


Last week, my sister and brother-in-law were home for a few days!! It was so nice to see them and spend time with them. I wish they lived closer!! They also brought along their new puppy, Sadie!! She stayed at our house Thursday night, but Friday night she was crying, so Amanda and Greg had to take her to Mom and Dad's. Avery loved Sadie....too bad, because she won't be getting a dog!!

Thoughts for the day:

~Prayers for Logan

~Decorating for Christmas!! Yea!!

~Go Bucks!!

Circus, Circus, Circus

On Saturday, Mike, Val and the kids, Katy, Rick, Cooper, Tom, Avery and I all loaded up in Paul and Jenny's big white van and headed for the Circus!! I was so excited. I had never been to the circus before!! We left our house at 1:30 and didn't get home until 9:00. It was an exhausting day for the kids. Sorry, I can't post any pictures. When I took my camera out to take the first picture, the batteries fell out and were lost forever (and of course I didn't have any extras).

Jill, I hope you don't mind, but I like how you do thoughts for the day, so I'm going to copy you!!

Thoughts for the day:
~Don't take an 18mo old to the circus!! (She enjoyed it, but it was way to long for her to sit still)

~Don't purchase any suveniers at the circus-such a rip-off!! (We bought Avery a bag of cotton candy that came with a top hat and it cost $12-can you believe it...... $12 for pure sugar!!! I learned my lesson-ask how much it costs before saying I'll have one!!)

~I'm enjoying these last few days of 70 degree weather.....hopefully a bike ride will be in the plans!!

~I couldn't sleep last night....I was so interested in all of the election updates

~And finally, I'm a little nervous about what's going to happen these next 4 years....I think we are all going to have to do lots of praying.
