My parents have joined us for an impromptu visit! We're always happy to have family come to see us :).

Our eldest child got her Learner's Permit this week. She doesn't really want to drive anywhere except around our neighborhood and that suits us fine.

Eldest also got a checking account! I guess that means our "little girl" is growing up....

Has anyone started Christmas shopping? I've bought one gift...but that's pretty good for me at this stage. We also bought our family Christmas ornament while we were at the's tricky finding an ornament for a family of 6--we like to get the kind that can be personalized with each person's name and the year.

I'm amazed that people still buy pinatas after watching America's Funniest Videos! That also goes for trampolines. And Treadmills. And Snowmobiles.

People are creative in finding ways to hurt themselves (see above). Some of my family (not mentioning names, E!), really enjoy some cringe-worthy videos of people falling down, getting hit in various places with diverse objects, and exposing themselves to public ridicule by capturing it all on film and having it aired on national television.


Later Days!

Then E. would have really enjoyed the beach with us when I nearly took someone out when I hit them from behind while I was boogie boarding.
Or...this past week when I jumped during a homeschool activity and my foot slid out from under me and my big toe felt like it touched my ankle it bent back so far!!! Thankfully nothing is broken, just my pride, and I have a badly sprained foot!!!! LOL

As always we had a great visit. Enjoyed getting a little Christmas shopping done with you. E, Papa and I are so proud of you doing all these "adult people" things (driver's permit and checking account). Hope you all have a great week. See you soon. Love, prayers, and always much misses, Mimi.
