Sunday Snapshot

I'm here. I'm still here. I am glad to say that I am no longer buried beneath the piles of summer clothing and pool paraphernalia that needed to go into storage. Nor am I stepping over the mounds of laundry waiting to be finished from the fall/winter clothes bins that needed to be washed. And washed. And washed. And the folding?! OY! All that folding!!!!

The good news is that it's done. Another season change-over done and only a few necessities have been added to the shopping list. Mainly shoes. What is it with shoes? I mean, why must all four of the older kids need new shoes (and multiple pairs at that!) all at the same time? Can we please space out the growth spurts once in a while? I'm just sayin' . . . .  The bad news? Well, as soon as all the capris and shorts and flip flops got boxed up and stored neatly in the basement, the temps zoomed right back up. To "Mom, it's so hot out side I think I'm dying" temps.  Yeah, I know. It happens to me every. stinkin'. fall.

It's been two weeks since I blogged at ya.... Really, I can hardly believe it. I'm easing back into things with a pictoral stroll through the last two weeks of  The Gang's life. Just a fun little Sunday Snapshot, brought to you courtesy of the lovely Stefanie over at Ni Hao Ya'll.  Link up and join the party, won't you?

Ni Hao Y'all

Dr. D discovered a new "perk" to home-schooling.
Behold his little study cubby.
Complete with a fleecy Eagles blanket on cold mornings! 

The Boss splurged on this lovely bouquet
of orange roses to celebrate our

 LadyBug and I transformed two dreadful
Halloween costumes into a lovely, ladylike
noble-woman's gown for her field trip
to the local Renaissance Faire.

And of course, Li'l Empress had to get in on the
prettifications. She even tried to learn a proper curtsy.
You know, just in case the Queen walked by.

And most exciting of all the events of the past two weeks???

The Boss and I got to enjoy a long, lingering, quiet, and romantic dinner for two at the local fondue restaurant.
There are no pictures of the auspicious event.
We were too busy snuggling in our corner booth and smooching between visits from our waiter.

To join in on the Sunday Snapshot fun,
head over to Ni Hao Ya'll and link up.
But don't forget to leave me a comment
if you want me to visit you :)
It's only fair, you know.

And a snuggly AND romantic outing is always worth celebrating. They are not one and the same thing.

Don't you love that about homeschooling? Finding them in a chair working away … and I'm with him on having to have a blanket!

I'm waiting for this Monday post! Talk about keeping someone hanging ;)

I used to love doing that to the armchairs! Great pics :)

Daisy Dreams said...

That always happens to me too....I pack up one season of clothes only for the kids to need them days after they've been neatly stored! You'd think I would've learned by now. Nope.

Great photos :)

Great stuff - glad that you had a chance to do a little catchup - we're about 3 weeks behind on that but maybe some progress this week!

20 years - way to go - happy for you guys - you deserved a quiet romantic evening out!

hugs - aus and co.
