First Football Game

img_6873-football_shareOn Friday we went to a Western Michigan Broncos verses Toledo Rockets football game. It was the first football game I have been to since high school and the first one the kids have ever been to.

It was extremely crowded and it drizzled on and off all during the game. Megan snuggled with her uncles for the first part of the game and then came to keep Allan and me warm.  Even though we did not understand the whole game, we all enjoyed it and were glad that we went.

Megan especially liked the marching band and the color guard.She was disappointed when that part was over. However, when we left before the last quarter since we did not want to be caught in the crowds leaving, she was excited to ride in the back of a golf cart.  We were thankful for those carts because we had parked the car a lot further than we remembered!

We learned later that the Broncos won 55-35.

Sewing Project

From an oversized Goodwill buy to an adorable Thanksgiving outfit!


We were looking online for some fun thanksgiving crafts to make.  We found a few really cute shirts, but Megan liked the one with her hand prints the best. Andrea and Audrey helped me design this dress by picking out the material and then learning how to make a circle skirt to attach.

Momma’s Break

mommas-breakThe last few days have been extra crazy. Tonight I was told to relax and not do anything but enjoy some quiet.  So I did my favorite things; found a good book, made a cup of tea, lit a candle and went outside. I read outside for over an hour until my feet got cold.

Allan is so wonderful.  He has been busy with changes at work and comes home to fix everything that is falling apart in the kitchen. He helps Mark with math that is way beyond my ability. He needs a quiet evening on his own, but he tells me to relax . He knows how to make me feel special and loved!
