Three Days Shy of 7 Months…

These photos were taken Tuesday October 17th. Auntie and Baba were Addy sitting while her mommy was at Bible Study.

We got a kick out of all her expressions and those eyebrows!

Looking at Auntie Katie and reaching for her hand.

We were tiring her out.

Tuesday the guys made a run to the dump and then were in the forest getting a supply of wood with a permit. When they brought the Lodge Pole Pines home they cut it down into sixteen inch rounds to Chop later.  I was watching Addy while all the wood activity went on so I didn’t get a photo of the wood. After they cut and stacked it we got ready for dinner out at our favorite Mexican restaurant in Chewelah, El Ranchito.

Addy looks like a pro in the restaurant highchair. The padded high chair and shopping cart seat covers are such a great invention. I found this one in near new condition at Goodwill for $3.99. This was another full day with everyone dropping into bed early.

Back to the present: Our kitchen is ready for measurements to make templates to cut and prepare the quartz for installation. The new sink arrived today and the new cook top arrived last Friday. We picked the tile company we are going with for the back splash. We won’t purchase the tile till after the counters are installed. I’m parting with some items that have been on my counters forever and a day. I hope to get good photos for the before and after.

Today is Halloween. No tricks but I have a treat for you over at Mennonite Girls Can Cook. Click here to get the recipe for this treat…

I’m looking forward to seeing all the cute little trick or treaters tonight and shouting out a hello to their parents standing back and watching them approach our door. I’ll try to keep track as to how many come. I’ve got my old tupperware bowl full to the brim with a variety of candy. Do you get many trick or treaters?

  1. Oh Addy is soooo adorable!!! Love her expressions for her adoring auntie and baba! We don’t get any goblins here anymore (too much in the country) but at least I have my little butterfly goblin here for the day – my treat!!! Can’t wait to see your renovations Ellen. We are in the midst of decisions for our kitchen upgrade!

  2. We don’t get a lot but we do get some. Three of our grands will come and eat dinner before they make the rounds in our neighborhood.
    Addy is adorable! What a good girl!
    Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Ooh! That Miss Addy is so precious, and I believe she knows it too. A new kitchen is always so nice, we don’t get trick or treaters in our community, because of being so isolated.
    Enjoy your evening, Thank you for your encouragement about blogging.
    Blessings,
    Sue

  4. Addy is so cute!

    I can’t wait to see your completed kitchen! Weren’t you thinking of moving soon?

    We had 36 “trick or treat” children come to the door this year. It is always hard to judge how much candy to buy as a few years ago we had double that amount.
