The Lazy Award

For once I am not the lazy (read as sleep the latest) one in the house. Madison has decided she doesn’t want to get out of bed in the mornings. She always gets in the bed with me when Wade leaves for work and now stays even after I get up. Today she came downstairs…

A Fall Outing

Milwaukee weather is surprising – it warmed up. When the weatherman predicted a high of 60 degrees, everyone wanted to be outside. Maren called and asked if I’d like to join her for a walk. We ventured out by the lake and had a great time. Elise stayed warm and shaded while we did all…

Snow? In October?

They (the weather people) predicted light snow mixed with rain and I didn’t believe them. I was wrong. I am sitting at my desk looking out my newly painted windows and seeing a little white stuff in with the rain. Since the temperature is in the low 40s I know nothing will stick, but it…

Puppies and Lasagna

We had visitors tonight! Christin and Kyle brought dinner (lasagna) and their English Mastiff puppy, Fred, over to visit. Fred is only 6 months old (I think) and weighs 110+ pounds. The first time he and Madison met they were the same size. Now there is a noticable difference and Madison is very perturbed not…

    We had a blast! Thanks for having us, and I can’t wait for the next time. We’ll start working on Fred’s saddle training for the baby immediately!

Game Night

Wade is definitely improving and trying to slowly wean himself off pain medicine. We were invited across the street for board games and gladly accepted. I had met Amber and Nick, but Wade had only heard about them. We did a lot of talking and played a new game (to us) “Apples to Apples” before…

    Thanks for coming over! We had fun and hope to do it again. Wade left his hat here. Each day I’ve intended to bring it over…it’s about this time of day when I realize I forgot (again). Tomorrow. Or Thursday. Definitely by Friday.

    That sounds just like Wade. He loses more hats and jackets than anyone I know. He hasn’t even realized it was missing yet….

Surgery And A Groggy Wade

Wade had his ACL surgery today. His surgery time was 7:30 am so we had to be there by 6 am – very early for me these days. He was joking and happy before the needles started: I would have taken a picture of the groggy Wade, but I wasn’t sure he would like that….

Pumpkin Carving

One of Wade’s favorite holidays is Halloween – mostly because he can carve pumpkins. This is the first year we ventured out to a pumpkin patch. I think I was most excited to find a carmel apple. Although it was fairly late when we got home from dinner we all carved pumpkins at Wade’s insistence…
