Thursday :)

Have you bought pumpkins yet?  I bought three little ones :)  They look so nice on the table.

I also made some chocolate haystacks:)  I put little MM's on them to make it look like they have eyes...(Spiders...LOL)  Anyway a very simple recipe and they taste so good:)

Happy fall!

Laundry Day!

Good Morning!

I am going to spend today doing laundry, I have kind of neglected it a bit this week. (Just did a few loads here and there)  So I am going to play catch up today. I am going to wash EVERYTHING!!!  Who will be doing laundry with me?  Alexis has all next week off from school, so I am really looking forward to that..I like having all my little chickies at home with me :)

Thank you all for your kind words on my post below XOXO

.......Tuesday :) Ooooops, I mean Wednesday...LOL

Okay, so the last post I left, I said I was going out to dinner and would take pictures......That was Friday.  At around 3:00 that day I was finishing up cleaning the house, and I was winding up the cord to the vacuum...I had been cleaning for a while and really needed a shower.....well, I hear a knock on my door...and my dog started to bark....A lot of kids have been knocking on my door selling this or that for their school....I didn't want to answer..I was dirty....LOL...Anyway, I went to the door anyway, and there was a lady, I had briefly met her a while back.  She said, Hi, I just want to let you know, there is a leak in your yard and water is running all down the street :::::sigh::::::..I could not find the shutoff outside...I looked everywhere.  My husband wasn't answering his phone, so I called my MIL...I know I sounded frantic...I was.......water was gushing out of my lawn.  My MIL told me what to look for..I still could not find the shut very nice neighbor came over, the one that brought over brownies with his wife to welcome me here.  He helped me look and he couldn't find it either.  I had called the water company and they sent over a man to shut off the water for me.  You know why we could not find the shutoff?? ...It was on the neighbors side...LOL.....anyway, the plumber then came to fix the pipe.....Remember I had no water in or out of the house......he had to dig up a good amount of dirt to find the leak...see picture above.  Anyway, everything was fixed and back to normal after we ended up ordering pizza.......

It Started To Rain This Afternoon :)

 It started to rain this afternoon.
So, Kevin and I sat on that crate and watched it for awhile.  Even though it is raining, it is rather warm out.  In Cali, when it rained it is normally chilly...but here it is warm and rainy~~lovely :)

Good Morning!

One thing I do every morning is make sure all the beds are made.  If the beds are made it makes the room that much nicer:)  Don't you think so?  I need to vacuum the stairs today...and there are A LOT...LOL.

As I am doing my daily housework I have been following the Drew Peterson trial.... They are deliberating right now....I am in doubt, I can't 100% say I think he did it.  I have my doubts!

As for Facebook, oh boy are those political posts flying......Well this is my blog, so I am going to say this:

I did not vote for Barack Obama last time, and I will not vote for him this time.  I am not going to bash him or say nasty things about him, he is the leader of our country and deserves respect.  I am not a democrat..and do not see eye to eye with what they believe in.  Anyway, I love Ann Romney, I think she is an amazing wife and mother, and I enjoy her posts on Facebook :)  There.....Love me or don't love me..these are some of my thoughts :)
