Someone (well that's a hard one!) made some new permanent marker lines all over our back-of-the-basement-door family growth chart. I guess it will just add to the memories?
My autumn staples: the crock pot full of dinner and apple pie for dessert.
We have had so much rain in the last few weeks. I don't really mind because we didn't get much all summer.
I made old-fashioned white bread in my breadmaker and then declared at dinner that it was a grilled cheese night. I love an easy dinner don't you? I need that break once in awhile.
The leaves are officially falling.
Abbey spent the night at a regatta last weekend and when I went to wake up Andrew for cross country I did a double-take when I walked by Abbey's room. This little guy told me that his room was "haunted" the night before and he couldn't fall asleep in his own bed.
Those are my two brothers and this is my favorite picture of them. Andy is on the left, Joe is on the right. Andy lives in Ireland with his wife and little baby boy, and Joe flies for Marine One. Earlier this year Joe had an assigned trip over to Ireland and they had a chance to meet up. Aren't they handsome? And guess what? They are nice too.
Here is my second favorite picture of them.
