I think we worked out that we are going to tell her that we will be celebrating with BIL in a few weeks when we go out and that Marc will go over Friday afternoon and then I will pick him up on my way home with a short little hour visit for me. BIL needs to borrow Marc's truck this weekend so that gives Marc the chance to drop it off. We are both going to "sleep" on it tonight and then he will call her tomorrow.

Hey Gang---Happy Sunday!!! I can't believe it is 10pm and I am just now hopping on the DIS!!!! BUT, I do have a good excuse---we were gone all day today.......we drove the 2 hours down to Natural Bridge State Park to go hiking and enjoy the view from the "bridge." This is actually one of my favorite places to go to in our state---it is beautiful....they have lots of pretty hiking trails, and if you don't like hiking, you can also ride the scenic skylift up. The bridge is a natural rock formation in the shape of a bridge---it has a beautiful overlook. On a sidenote, this is where Tom proposed to me.....AWWWWWWWW!!!!! We haven't actually been back there since, so it was neat taking Megs down there. Today was probably the last decent day around here---turning COLD probably for good tomorrow, so we wanted to soak up the decent weather and go for a good hike.

Not much progress on the November trip---we did talk about it several times during the drive---he wants to go, but he also wants to take a more relaxing laid back trip like the one we had planned for Gatlinburg. He also has about 100 things he wants to do right now---to the house, with our cars, etc., etc.---I think he just keeps finding ways to talk himself out of it.

I hate his finicky-ness---I am to the point where I really don't see it happening, but I would SO love it if he would just stop changing his mind constantly---getting so hard to figure out which track he is heading down.

PKB--so glad you are home--can't wait to hear all about it!

That sounds like a good plan -- it limits your interaction with her which is a good thing!

That sounds like fun! It is going to turn really cold here later this week (well Tuesday) and I am so not looking forward to it. Brrrr! I would be happy with warm weather all year long! Maybe I should move to Florida!

He needs to quit talking himself out of it.

Unfortunately, I always get up at 5:00 on school days so that I get everything done and everybody ready on time. Of course, my day has to start with coffee and the DIS boards.

Morning Lapuettes!

I haven't been on much, had a busy weekend.

Yesterday we had a great time! Mom, DH, and I took DS to Santa's Land in Putney, Vt. The weather was beautiful, and we had a lot of fun. DS had a great time playing on the various playgrounds, feeding the animals, and of course, seeing Santa. Actually, we went to see Santa twice! The first time DS was a bit shy, as I expected given our character experiences this past Disney trip. The second time he actually smiled a bit in one of the photos. That's Christmas present fodder for the grandparents, that is.

Afterwards we stopped at Harlow's and got maple syrup and whatnot, and then had lunch/dinner at the Putney Inn. That was amazing! Mom and I both got the turkey pot pie, and it had an herbed crust that was just delish! And DS had chicken fingers and french fries (a kid's portion) and it was a huge amount of food, I was shocked. DH had a good ole bacon cheeseburger, I believe it was applewood smoked bacon. All in all, it was a great day, but I was just flat out pooped when we got home.

Lately I've been having trouble sleeping at night, and last night was the first time I got a solid chunk of sleep in a row. Today we're hoping to have a jammie day, and I'm getting ready to make pancakes so we can have some of that yummy syrup!

How's everyone else doing?

TK, sounds like an absolutely wonderful day yesterday, and can I just say that I am sooooo jealous that you get to wear jammies and eat pancakes today? The wind is going to be HOWLING here later today, and I am so going to wish I was home curled up in a blanket. On the bright side, I am planning on taking the kids to the library afterschool, and then we can have hot chocolate later tonight. Except without whipped cream because Connor was trying to help make Oogie Boogie sundaes last night and dropped the can of whipped cream -- the squirter part was broken and unable to be fixed. I know he was just trying to help, but boy, did it take a small miracle for my displeasure not to show.

Anyway, apparently I am in a rambling mood this morning.
