lookatme! all on top of things! actually posting this on the following monday, and NOT backdating the post so it looks like i posted it on the following monday! LOL.
sunday: woke up to more snow. dumping snow all morning. sticking to the roads when we had to leave for church. that part is not my favorite. as soon as it’s on the road my preferred method of travel is on foot or by sled. but we made it safely.
monday: when you do laundry for a family, you know that you sometimes will open the washer or dryer to find something odd. hopefully it wasn’t something that got ruined or ruined your clothes… this one is a first for me. obviously, this was shane’s load. yes, it was open in the dryer. and no, as far as i know, his clothes aren’t full of slashes and holes…
friday: day off of school! assorted projects going on. lots of knitting and catching up on project life for me, working on comics for micah, and layla, after a trip to ben franklin for drawing supplies, worked on some sketches. shane, of course, was out and about, and dave was at work.

also tuesday: halloween 2017. shane is MIA since he went to bailey’s (and didn’t dress up anyway). layla decided to reprise the “mexican banana” and micah is a red ninja. our neighborhood group of trick or treaters. and the traditional candy sort/swap.

this was apparently a very odd week for picture taking. as in, i didn’t.
but i did take one walk with the dog on friday, in which i was struck by the blueness of the sky and the awesome fall colors in my neighborhood, and so i couldn’t take 5 steps without stopping to pull out my phone to photograph some pretty tree. fortunately, when paired up, these pics resulted in exactly the right number i needed for the week. but first:
and that’s all she wrote.

sunday: dave took micah and a couple friends to the sounders game (and got him a hat) as an early birthday celebration. monday: these are the school pictures shane brought home. notice the “normal” shots they evidently took… but someone decided that THESE were the ones we wanted. this was the stupid pose he did for his asb card photo… also monday: layla was very excited to make micah’s birthday cake. they had it all planned out. vanilla cake, purple frosting, crushed jolly ranchers sprinkled on the top.
also also also monday: micah’s last day to be 9!
friday: micah’s party. what he wanted to do for this big 10th birthday more than anything, was to have a sleepover party. and so we did. 14 boys in our house, 9 slept over. so much ice cream, so many video games, so many nerf darts EVERYWHERE, so much noise, so little sleep… but everyone had a blast, micah was thrilled, we survived, and we NEVER have to do it again!!!

also also sunday: the light in our office has a dimmer switch. ever since we took out the chandelier (many years ago) and put in a dome light (it’s supposed to be a formal dining room), it has flickered like crazy and drives everyone nuts. dave bought a regular switch today and swapped it out. no more flickers!
thursday: trying REALLY hard to not turn on the furnace. in addition to the hoodie and blanket you can see, there was also fuzzy pajama pants, socks, slippers, a fire in the fire place, and a heating pad under my butt. i caved 2 days later on saturday and turned it on…
