This weekend was special.
1) Austin was at Grammie's house, so mommy was bored while Daddy was doing side jobs..
2) I am coming down with an awful awful double awful cold.
First.. Let me say, how thrilled I am for it to be..
What did I do allll day while Austin was having a blast at gram's, and daddy was working his tush off?
First I decorated for Halloween, so it could be a surprise for Austin when he got home..
|you can see I wrote fall with glitter glue onto the pumpkins|
|our entry way, they light up at nighttime.. ooooo|
|our front door.. GHOULISH isn't it??|
Then... I was STILL bored, with all the housework done..
I decided to surprise the boys with collecting ALL the leaves in our yard.
BUT.. I didnt do it the old fashion way, with a rake, no! That would take
TOO LONG.. so I leaf blowed, while listening to my i pod..
THIS.. Is what I got..
( after learning to blow WITH the wind)
It doesn't look that big, but man IT IS!!
Last night, AGAIN, with no Austin, Keith and I carved pumpkins and baked seeds..
We got a little kit, and it was really fun ( and romantic, hahha)
|cutting out the 'guts'|
|washing the seeds|
|caving out design|
|I am reallly concentrating..|
THE FINISHED PRODUCT!!
we First ran our errands, and then when out scouting for deer... ( in an undisclosed location, for our hunting secrecy)
We found deer, coyote, AND moose tracks.. It was a lot of fun..
|looking at some tracks|
|moose tracks, you cant tell, but they were HUGE!!|
By this time I was ready to pass out from all the hiking, and the not-being-able-to-breathe-out-of-my-nose problems I was having..
I was in luck, because our next stop was our 3RD ANNUAL trip to Rangley, to see the peak of the foliage at the height of the lands..
Yes, 2/3's of the clan have colds, and are therefore a wee bit cranky, but we had fun..
It was about 60 miles to get there, and me and Austin both napped ( much needed I might add)
It was not as cold as last year, but it was still a little chilly..
When we left, Austin waved " buh-bye" for another year...
we napped some more..
and came home to the surprise mommy had made..
And by this time, he was in a good mood, and ready to play..
