Weekend Wrap-Up

I had such a wonderful weekend! My parents came to visit from California – we haven’t seen them in 2 months so it was an especially nice treat.

When we moved into our new house it was perfect – easy to do when you get to pick out everything that goes in it.  The only problem was that we didn’t have a back fence or side gates. Well….we still don’t have side gates (those are a work in progress), but with the help of my dad and one of my hubby’s army friends – we now have a FENCE! This is especially exciting because it means that Anne and I can play out side (when it isn’t raining) and I can feel safe out there.  We have had a few incidents of stray dogs wandering into our yard – not anymore!

Didn’t the men do a beautiful job?!? We still need to stain it, but I think we will wait until the gates are done too.

While the men were building, my mom and I spent our time entertaining Anne and while she napped we started working on Anne’s Halloween Costume.

Here is Anne’s handiwork decorating for Halloween. She put the decals on the window – with help from Nana. She also decorated a spider web with 3-D stickers. I think her and my mom both had a lot of fun together!

Did I mention that I made A LOT of progress on Anne’s Halloween Costume. It is all done except for the waist band…and the pressing of the seams.  I am so excited – my mom helped me cut it out and then I whipped out my Sewing Answers Book for the questions I had after she left.  Considering that I don’t sew garments this book is a must have for me.  I got mine for $8.99 at Costco last week and I am very happy with it.

What did you do this weekend?

    Your fence looks great. I am super jealous. I’ve lived in my home since 1994 and still don’t have a fence. 🙁 I have more than dogs wandering through my yard however although our neighbor dog does come over to my yard all the time AND chases US in our OWN YARD! Grrrrrr But, the other animals are what bother me. The deer are breautiful to watch just 100 feet outside my kitchen window eating my apples from my little tree but the skunks? Yea, the skunks – they can just go away. I had to leave earlier this morning to go meet my son and his fiancee at the doctor since she asked me to go. It was their appt. with a high risk pregnancy doc who was doing an ultrasound to check the baby. I was NOT missing that for nothing so I very carefully hobbled to my car as fast as I possibly could with my bad knees once I stepped out that door and smelled that all too familiar smell I was really freaked not knowing if I’d get sprayed the second I got to the corner of the house. LOL BUT I WAS NOT missing that appt where I got to see my Grandchild. HAHA

    LOVE the decorations. How cute. And the skirt! GREAT job on that. It looks wonderful.
