The girls and I had some time before Mass last weekend to enjoy the beautiful October weather...
And then we took a selfie and met my mom and sister for dinner at Pizza Hut, while the guys did whatever it is they do up at camp. : )
A few days later, we woke to find that this little guy had made his first visit of the year!
And my littlest was thrilled to get outside and see it!
So that is what we did.
That would be my girl in Halloween pajamas, a winter hat and gloves, and flip flops.
Real life here, friends. : )
It was chilly enough for a cozy morning of coffee by the fireplace.
I got a cut and color too.
Doesn't that just make you feel so much better?
My mom came for a visit and spent the night.
It is always a happy time when Grandma comes!
Peyton made these delicious Pumpkin Stuffed Shells.
I posted the recipe here, if you want to try them.
She also made some delicious chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
My sweet mother needed to head home early the next morning, as Thursday is her busy day!
She helps in the Senior Center Kitchen before lunch, then she plays cards in the afternoon, and Bingo in the evening!
She is amazing. : )
And speaking of amazing, my firstborn is currently exploring the world with her Nicolas and his amazing family. This week they were in Greece, and will soon travel to Italy. Madison is so happy and is looking forward to visiting the place where her great-grandfather Leo was born. Nicolas' mother sent me these beautiful photos, and she told me to look closely at the last one. : )
Last week was all about bats in our little schoolroom.
They are actually very interesting creatures.
But I think this little lady is much cuter!
Flynn and I paid a visit to our beautiful church one morning.
We are studying the virtue of Reverence, and we practiced and then we prayed.
And can I add, our pastor creates the most amazing altar decor every season.
Lastly, we are praying a decade of the rosary every morning before school during the month of October, and today Flynn asked to pray an extra one for her Grandma Flo. : )
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!
Ours involves a trip to visit Grandma Flo, Mass, and a Steeler game...in person for some...on the couch with pizza for others...and some quiet cozy time together.
I hope yours is exactly the way you want it to be, spent with the ones you love.
Thanks for visiting!
