I hope everyone enjoyed the wonderful holiday weekend. We had a couple of events this weekend, so we didn’t get much of a weekend at all. My children played at the Veteran’s Festival in Forest Park on Saturday morning and for a 5k walk on Sunday morning in honor of the Veteran’s and to raise money for a memorial to be placed right near where we are standing. Here’s a cell phone pic:
It was such an honor to be there for the event on Sunday, but Saturday’s was slightly disastrous and my son is still sick from it. We had an excessive heat warning and then add those beautiful wool coats, and the wool weskits underneath and that all spells disaster. At least Sunday was a good one.
I am hoping the week ahead will slow down a little bit. I’m looking forward to calmer week, definitely.
Dinner: Grilled All Beef Hot Dogs, Bacon and Swiss Burgers on the Grill, Loaded Baked Potatoes,
Dinner: I have a board meeting – something super fast – we’ll pull a Creamy Ham Noodle Casserole from the freezer. THIS is why I love Freezer Cooking!

Dinner: Baked Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Sweet Potato Casserole & Green Beans – Yes, Thanksgiving – don’t judge. We’re loving our weather.

And courtesy of my friend eDee over at Stuck at Home Mom – I must share this.

Again, I mention – I have a board meeting to attend tonight – please pray that I return home in one piece. They never seem to go as planned. I’m glad they aren’t monthly.
