Life is Busy!

Hello you all!
Life has been keeping me busy, away from the computer.I will give you a quick update!
Our school had an auction, a week ago from Saturday, we spent the day with Mark's parents and enjoyed doing yardwork.
Sunday we had the start of missions conference last week. And I learned a new tip! If you boil sweetened condensed milk, it turns into carmel! Isn't that interesting...
Also, we went over to Jenny and Josh's house for a bonfire last Sunday night.
I have been keeping up with weight watchers and now am down 2.8 pounds! *Boy I wish it would come off faster than this, but it's better than gaining I guess!
Friday the kids and I made "ghosts" to hang in the tree and lined our sidewalk for Halloween...and Friday night we had a group activity at the Palm's house, bonfire. It was fun. Saturday I took Sydney to County Market to paint pumpkins and eat cookies.
Than, we took a spur of the moment trip up to Ely, MN...Ever been? Wow...it takes FOREVER to get there, with 3 kids, 3 and under...oh well...it was so BEAUTIFUL!! We saw every kind of animal from deer to timberwolves! Neat, huh?
I have Sydney's first dentist appointment tomorrow, she is EXCITED FOR!
Alli is getting so much older! She is enjoying her exersaucer now. And, she is just about rolling over, not quite, but she is getting close!
Carter had Croupe last week, and it was a little scary, but he is on a steriod and doing much better.

The kids and I went on a 3 mile walk today...and they are now, of course napping!
Got to go...Jennie Pahl...I have been thinking of you alot lately...email me if you can!

Relaxing day

Today has been a relaxing day.
It's chilly outside...about 45 degree's...but good news, the sun is popping out. The kids and I went outside enjoying the fresh air.
I am surprising Mark tonight, and taking him out for dessert at The Melting Pot, in downtown MPLS...I am excited!
Tomorrow we are going to the school auction, which should be fun. Hoping that they raise alot of money for our school.
I am going to try and take a nap...
I will try and post early next week.

Dr Appt...

Alli had her dr appointment today. She weighs 15 lbs 12 oz. 25 inches. Growing great!
They're going to wait to see how her colon works with the rest of her body. Hoping she grows into it.
It was a good day!

Ho Hum Day

Today is a ho hum day.
I was going through my clothes, seeing what fits and what doesn't. I got a pile of clothes to go out.
I am watching Haellie all week. Logan is coming here after school soon.
The kids are really into hot wheels cars and matchbox cars. It's fun!
Alli pooped by herself today, yahoo!
I get weighed in today from Weight Watchers...I really enjoy the program. I have rediscovered apples and caramel, banana's and rice crispies, and much more!
We painted Carter's room brown this weekend, it looks so nice!
Well...better go wait for Logan!
Have a great day!

We had fun...Car's was our theme...we went to McDonald's, he choose nuggets for breakfast, and we had some Angel Food Cake for dessert. He walked away with a few cars of his own from the kids...Brian and Haellie Opp came over to help us celebrate too...

Happy Birthday Micah! (I added a cute picture of Alli at the park)
