October Happenings

A few fun pics!
I love the cooking group I'm part of.  Awesome girls & I love having supper ready to throw in the oven when I get home!!  Last time, we had gotten done with all the recipes and just had one left that we were working on, so while other girls started cleaning up some of us started what we called the "burrito line".  We were stuffing, rolling, wrapping & bagging some breakfast burritos-- wahoo for teamwork :)
What the heck is in your yard Auntie Kristin?  I don't have those at my house!
Oooooo  they're fun to throw!! :)
Go fetch, Kipper!! :)  I know, you all are JEALOUS of the walnuts that completely take over my yard to the point where it is a solid layer of walnuts.  Actually one windy Sunday I could hear them dropping to the ground when I had the windows open... it was kinda funny :)
I told Rowan to wave "buh-bye".... instead he reached for the throttle and Matt waved "buh-bye".... whatever works! :) 
Shopping trip to Des Moines w/ sister in laws!! Very successful day & sooo fun to hang out with them for a whole day.  Great company & conversation! :)  (not to mention beautiful!!!!!!)
Speaking of beautiful, of course pictures never do justice but this is the look out my kitchen window-- pretty pretty trees!!
Last weekend we had a bonfire at Dee & Layton's new house.  The hot tub was AWESOME!! We informed them that their house is the new hangout this winter :)
Science center? Nope.  Museum? Nope.  Dee's sun room? Yup!!  Dee has this awesome sunroom in her house that is just beautiful...and then there is this lower section that is the walk out door to the hot tub and the previous owners planted a palm tree in their house!  It also has small cactus growing around the bottom of it.  Dee said she wasn't sure how long it was going stay in her house, but for now it's quite the conversation piece!! :)  I told her to leave it.... in the middle of the winter we can sit in the hot tub, look at the palm tree and pretend that we are in Mexico :)
Our "puppy".  Karl said he has to be 100 lbs. by now.
He's still pretty cute :)
Ever wondered how a combine works?!  Stuff like this blows my mind... A) how can someone create this?  B) how can someone fix this?
Dusty - dusty!!  This was my ride all day on Saturday w/ Dad :) :)
Dirt work.  I bet our nieces/nephews would have loved to hit this up with their motorcycles :)
