Last time I "really" posted, it was right before my birthday and I was sharing my resolutions. An update:
- Woodworking - I finally convinced Jeremy to let me build these oak shelves I've been eyeing of Ana White's website. This picture is from her website... definitely not the finished product. My project is going a little slow. I've sanded the oak down but was trying to get one piece glued together while Dave was napping one afternoon and glued it wrong. I'm currently trying to figure out exactly how to go about "detaching" my mistake!
- Take time for myself. Not so much - yet... Jeremy and I have had some alone time which has been great but I haven't had much time for just me. Next Friday I'm meeting up with Rachel and Molly and I CAN'T WAIT!
- Think before speaking - yeah right. I'm a work in progress.
- Give up Chips. I made it one day. :) Dave was eating some Cheetos at Richard and Lori's and wanted me to hold them. I was doing pretty good until Jeremy leaned over and said "Amanda, everyone has a vice. Yours is just chips. You can eat one." So I did.
On my birthday, Alta Vista had Old Settlers Day. There were lots of activities.
There was a parade.
This was a "homecoming couple from years ago! It was so cute!
My Birthday Pic!
And a bounce house!
Old Settler's Day also had a volleyball tournament and horseshoe tournament but as I don't play sports that involve a ball... and know nothing about horseshoes - I was out.
My friend Rachel came down while Jeremy was fishing one weekend and we went to the Pumpkin Patch in Alma. The patch had all kinds of activities like a tree house, jumping into hay, tube slide, walking trail, smores, etc. and of course, pumpkins!
And one with Daddy. Obviously he really likes his Sponge Bob blanket.
And last but not least... we did some Halloweening!
We did a Halloween Parade in AV.
Richard and Lori and my parents, Sam and Betty, handed out candy on the street as well.
We went to a carnival they held at the Baptist church here. Dave loved the cake walk!
But pick out Skittles instead of yummy cookies! I was WAY disappointed!
Now that I've caught up on my posting. I promise to try to be better in the future!
