I'm a Fairy: Halloween with Meadow Jane and Friends

Wednesday Our Halloween festivities started with our annual pumpkin carving party with Cevonne and Jose. Of course it has to be done with Skype. I really wish they would move back already. This year I attempted to make a cyclops, but it turns out that a pumpkin-cyclops just looks like a gourd with two strange eyes. Meadow painted hers blue marble. It was "going to be beautiful". I guess my pumpkin won this year. Meadow was a little afraid of our pumpkins once they were lit up. We had photos from a Armatage Park Halloween Party and Eleanor's Birthday party, but Scott lost the memory card... Life happens. Sunday For the first time in forever I made Sunday breakfast. Kaiserschmarrn it was. We really had no plans until later in the day. I wanted to get some yarn for a new project. We drove down to Linden Hills to check out the almost-closed Needlework Unlimited. So, many yarn stores have closed since I moved here. Most

Scenes from Interstate State Park Hiking and Canoeing to Lake Minnetonka's Big Island

Friday I'm having surgery later this week to remove a giant abnormal mole. This weekend is dedicated to adventures since I won't be able to do much next weekend. And it could be the last nice weekend for a while. First stop, the library for storytime. After picking out a stack of books we were hungry. I suggested we go over to the Broadway Bar and Pizza for a lunch buffet. Pizza and pasta? Heck yeah! You had me at buffet. We have been working on phonics with Meadow lately. When she got her spaghetti she said, "Ba-sket-ti starts with B!"  We have a Wisconsin State Park pass that we really hadn't used as much as I thought we would this year. Unlike Minnesota State passes they are good for that year only, no matter when you buy it. Where as Minnesota is good for a year after it is purchased. So we decided to go to Interstate State Park on the Wisconsin side. While Scott was busy painting the car Meadow and made leaf piles.
