Pumpkin Patch

While Steven was in ND duck hunting with my family this past weekend, Abi and I went to Redmond to visit friends and enjoyed a day at the pumpkin patch. We enjoyed time seeing Ruth and the twins' and their families. It sounds like Steven thoroughly enjoyed being able to duck hunt for three days with family. They had great weather for it and sounds like everybody put their gun to good use. Abi had her 1 yr MD appt and is 31" long and weighs 21 1/2 lb. She is walking a lot but for whatever reason like to cruise on all four at home on our carpets.

October already?!

Where did the summer go?! With everybody else in the house snoozing, a comfy pair of sweats on, a pot of white chili on the stove and the familiar sound of football on TV, it is definitely fall here. We woke up to the sound of rain pounding outside and temps in the low 50's; yep, fall in the NW. This was our only unscheduled week for quite awhile so we opted to stay home rather than run around as planned. This meant that Granny and Auntie Stephie came up to spend the day with Abi. I am so grateful that they come to visit! Abi loves company and it was great to see them! Abi is gaining confidence walking and will walk across the living room and back if she has the patience. She cruises quickly on all four. I spent Saturday at the Women of Faith conference with a wonderful group of ladies from MVCC. What a GREAT event! If you get the chance to go, it's a must. Steven is trying to get work projects done; with his odd shifts he doesn't have the down time at work to accomplish them. The backyard was seeded almost four weeks ago so it received its first cutting this past week. It's time to shop for a rider I think!
