Well it was a great day! JBQ went awesome, J took 7th place individually and the team took 2nd! We were only 5 points behind the 1st place team. There was an issue with a girls buzzer in our last round so we had to start the round over and then lost that round. If we would have been able to finish out the round that the girls' buzzer wasn't working on we would have taken 1st place by a landslide! *sigh* Oh well. The kids had a great time and that's what matters. :) Mom and Gran (Barbara) both got to go to the match today and so did baby Monet (our niece)! Thanks for joining us guys! And, thanks for buying us grub, Gran!

Then we came home and brought Barbara with us. We hung out and watched the BSU game and then had a delicious pork roast dinner. Sat n chatted, played a game. It was a great night! She just left. It's so dark it feels like it must be 10, but no, it's only 6:41!!

Now I'm needing something for dessert, pumpkin pie sounds good but I'm not gonna go back out to Paul's to get it. Just not gonna do it!!!

J made a cool little project tonight all on his own. It turned out really great. It's called Charlie the Unicorn. I guess it's from an online video the kids watched with Chris. Anyway, I'll post a pic of it when he finishes it. He's gonna paint it white this coming weekend at Grammies house when they're there to spend the night. Grammie always has paints and stuff. Mommy doesn't! I should change that. We need a better craft closet. I'll just add that to the list of to-do's. Fab. Or, maybe I'll surprise J and get him the paint tomorrow so he doesn't have to wait so long to finish it. That would be fun. Yeah, I think I'll do that.

Well, I guess I'll go up and eat a ton of peanut butter M&M's to try to quench my Pumpkin Pie craving.

Have a great night!



  1. Our love and a pat on the back to J and congrats to his team. Great job. Let him know that we are very proud of him.

  2. It was a great day for me, too. Thanks for your hospitality! I was so tired by the time I got home I just went to bed and tried to read .... didn't last too long! This getting dark at 5:00 is hard on my poor little body! Anyway, it was a very fun day and I loved spending it with ya'll!
