Halloween week...

Happy weekend!
Hunter all decked out.

Hunter raced his boat in the rain gutter regatta on Thursday at scouts. He did an awesome job and took 1st place. This was after the Fall Festival at Aquarian, where we ate chili to our hearts content and enjoyed the fun of costumes, candy, and the haunted woods.

Marina is Sierra from
Total Drama World Tour.

I bought a set w/horns, tail, and a wand,
very fitting if my husband had been around.

Hunter is a skeleton.

Marina wanted me to take this...?
the end of the road for us this day.

We had a reprieve on Friday & actually got to enjoy the day, shopping and hanging with my handsome hubby, who was off for other reasons...ha! I went to the UAA Halloween carnival with the kids this afternoon. Steve stayed home to finish making moose pepperoni and get started making cheesy halibut in dill sauce for dinner. Now we're all cleaning house and getting ready for my mom's 75th birthday on Monday. Lots to do and a very little time to do it.

Happy Halloween eve to all!
Take care,

Happy trails!

The view of Mt. Denali!

From our living room!

An unexpected surprise visit...
actually two extra visits,
& again in November too, yehoo!

We made the most wonderful maple sausage!
Steve fried up 2 pieces right out of the grinder.

We eat pretty good around here.
Now off to Church for family bible study
& Marina's Confirmation class.
I can't believe the weekend is almost over.
Have a terrific week everyone!
Take care, Heather

Yea, it's almost Friday!

Awards & cake auction last Thurs!

We're still eating carrot cake from the auction.
Very nummers, walnuts, raisins,
and gooey creme cheese frosting!

Pizza Olympia for dinner Friday night!
Appetizers, pizza, yummy salads, and a gyro!
Lots of leftovers...

The kids got to play DS
for the 1st time in weeks.
They did all their chores +
and got 30 minutes of privileges.

Steve got home really late last night from SEA, so I'm sure we'll be in bed early tonight. The weekends coming and I love sleeping in with my hubby! I saw the Rheumatologist today and got a sample of Embrel. I hope I'll feel better overall when this pain goes away. I'm grumpy and sad when I'm in pain. I think the weekend will require a lot of rest to recoup! Kids are off to the other parents this weekend and the PFDs landed in ye ol' bank account, yehoo! I see the light...

Happy trails everyone!
Wherever they may lead.
