Saturday, November 21st - Our nephew Xander turned one today! Yay! Here he is enjoying his first birthday cake.
Sunday, November 22nd - My co-worker, Sherri, treated me to the New Moon movie at East Park Theatres today. It was great and I am looking forward to seeing it again. I took this photo while sitting in front of my computer. I wasn't quite sure how else to get my POTD.
Monday, November 23rd - We have a teenager at our house! YIKES! We had a surprise birthday party for Tyler and a few of his friends at our home. We ordered Cici's Pizza and served Tyler's favorite...pumpkin pie.

I was cleaning Madison's bedroom today and found a darling handwritten note on her floor from one of her friends. Apparently note passing starts early, I thought it was a Jr. High thing. I guess that's changed now with text messaging and all. Well, here it goes. I have no idea if it's from Aleni, Clare, Jessi, Olyvia, Kate or someone else. Whoever it is...spells better than Madison with exception for the last line, which is the cutest!
Madison you are a true friend. You don't talk behind my back or say mean things to me! Madison, I like that I can come to you when I am sad and you will make me happy. I just want to take this time to say thank you! Madison you are a great, so great of a friend. You are so nice and sweat!

Thursday, November 5th - Our first Parent-Teacher Conference night and we always go out to eat as a team afterwards. The gals decided to give me an exhausted look, which we were after a full day of teaching and three hours of conferencing. I, myself, had ten conferences tonight and all of them showed! Yay!
Friday, November 6th - The weather has been unseasonably beautiful! Andy is showing Tyler how to replace the pull cord on the lawn mover. Tomorrow it's time to do some yard work!
Saturday, November 7th - Beautiful weather continues, but Madison is wearing extreme summer clothing and it wasn't that warm! Funny kid! Grant and Madison are racking the leaves away from the fence, so Andy and Tyler could mow it up. I was the only one not doing yard work, my work was laundry instead.
Sunday, November 8th - Grant wanted to see one of his new favorite people...Grandma Betty. He's taken quite the fondness for her after his week's stay last month. Grant asked Grandma to visit and she couldn't resist, so both Grandma and Grandpa came for the day and got to see one of Madison's volleyball games.

Saturday, October 31st - Grant and Madison meet up with Jessi and Jordan the cute neighbor girls while out Trick or Treating.
Sunday, November 1st - It's time to put up the new calendar in my room. Can it be possible, November already???
Monday, November 2nd - I look down at Tyler's feet to see that he desperately needs new shoes. What does he do to them? It doesn't seem to bother him either. Ugh!
Tuesday, November 3rd - It's GNO time and we are all eating out at Grisanti's. It's one of my favorite places to eat. I love, love, love their White Pizza. Their bread and salad is equally as tasty!

Grant is getting his sister's help with the birthday card. He's giving her the look of why are we stopping for a piece of paper when there's a gift to be opened.
Grant had a terrific and yet simple birthday on Sunday, October 11th with family. We just can't believe he's already three!

This is one of the Archiver's scrapping rooms. Andy, all I want for Christmas is to scrap for endless hours in that back purple chair. Nothing more. Okay, I am lying, I'd love to have a Gypsy too, but I'd easily settle for some scrappin' time!
Look at all those Disney papers and stickers! I have literally thousands of photos to put on those papers!
Oh, Halloween papers and embellishments! Oooo, aaahhh!
