The weather must be changing for the season because my token winter visitor has arrived. Have Imet him? No. He is a resident in the same community. Every year in April(ish) I watch him pack up his house, put a trashbag on his front door, vaccum his front lawn (thats right - I said vaccum. He has those great rubberized-rock lawns) and head back to "Beautiful British Columbia" - as it says on his license plate. Then in October(ish) I watch him come back into town, park his car in his immaculate gargage on his carpet squares - so he wont leave a mark on his perfectly clean garage floor, and I know that Fall has come with him.

You see, he is my personal Groundhog. I have faith that he has been monitoring the weather and he know when it is the perfect time to come back. So when he comes I get excited and when he leaves I get sad. He keeps his home so immaculate that I have to believe that he arranges his arrival with precision. So, to my personal groundhog - whom I never have met, but look at his house everytime I drive by, I say thank you.

Side By Side

Well, its not really side by side because I dont know how to do that in blogger - but I love seeing Alison wear some of my favorite dresses from Caitlyn. One difference is for sure... Alison has a lot more hair.
Oh - and Alison is not that bright white. The flash was on. Opps.

Weekly Menu Continues! 10/4/10

Ok, I'm a day late. Does it really matter to anyone else other than Chad who checks to see what we're having for dinner?

It doesnt matter - I do it for myself. Or better yet, for my Personal Progress. This is one of my Value Projects.... to plan and cook menus - including a new recipe each week. I've done enough hours for my project already, but I'm having fun, and it really does help when I'm grocery shopping. It appeals to my organized side. Its nice to know what I'm cooking instead of trying to figure it out last minute and, lets be honest, then it usually doesnt taste good. So I hope that it is helpful to somebody out there!

Monday - lasagna
Tuesday - chicken noodle soup (I have a great recipe and I cant help but love the weather!)
Wednesday - pulled pork sandwiches
Thursday - stuffed shells (make enough to freeze a batch)
Friday- surprise - Caitlyn and Chad have planned this night. It should be interesting
Saturday - pizza
Sunday - hope we get invited to my moms :)

Alison's trick

I have no idea how she figured this out, but this is one of Alison's tricks:
She loves to look at people through her legs. I love how she gets up on her tippy toes so she can get as high as possible.
She'll come down, smile and laugh, and then get right back up. Its pretty cute.
