Always a concern when the girls have an hour long bus ride in the mornings. Luckily the bus has a bright flashing light to help. Creepy looking around though.....
The highlight of this morning was how adorable Kathleen looked on her way to school today! She wore her golf outfit she picked out to go golfing in with her daddy. :-) She definitely brightened my day.
So in contrast to today's photos, I have started taking pictures of the pretty sunrises and the slightest changes in the trees and landscape as fall approaches. We have still been picking quite a few raspberries off our bushes and so thankful as we have seen how expensive they are in the grocery store.
The house you see is our neighbors, the only one we have near us.
Kathleen's long walk to the bus stop, Cooper always walks down with us :-)
Beautiful sunrise in the morning.
It takes a family to pick all these raspberries, lol! But so worth it! I'm freezing them so we can enjoy them through the winter.
I love how I was able to capture this mist over the hillside one morning...
Jerry has an interesting way of cutting grass. He had us cracking up laughing because he was singing on the top of his lungs with his ear phones in to his music and it was echoing all over! Gotta love him..he certainly keeps life interesting :-)
Have to share this funny picture....we were in a mall the other day and you can take a train ride through the whole mall. We convinced Hayley to ride with Kathleen and you know how "fun" that is for a teenager, lol. So Jerry had to embarrass Hayley a little more by running down behind the train and waving to them and calling out "bye, have fun!...." He followed them quite awhile...poor Hayley! LOL. Kathleen however thought it was great.
Another funny to share, the other day as I went to make lunches and I came upon this slice of pizza Kathleen put in the fridge. I was laughing so hard! If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram you've already seen it, but I have to document this memory. ;-)
She cracks me up.... some of the things she comes up with. Hayley was funny, she said "you think that will stop me from eating it?" lol. Needless to say the pizza remained Kathleen's!
Elvis is enjoying all his special spots still in the house. My next life I need to come back as one of my pets. :-)
Three of our dogs, Skippy, Bella and Owen got groomed but of course wouldn't let me get a good picture of them. They are wearing Halloween bows :-)
Grooming is a good thing, especially when sleeping in the bed with Kathleen!!! ;-)
Ok now to share this delicious banana pudding cake recipe I found. So absolutely incredible and one of Jerry's new favorites. Well ok we all like it too.... and I've been making it for our guests as well. :) In our new house I have a gas stove and I must say I love cooking with it over electric! Everything cooks so much nicer.
