Fall Interrupted

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted.  It’s not that I didn’t want too, it’s just that everything I wanted to do and would have taken pictures and wrote happy words about didn’t happen.  Our house has been overrun with illness, and it wasn’t pretty.  I’ll spare the details(3 kids with the stomach flu in succession), but it sucked.  We lost two weekends of fun to it.  After it there was a trail of unfinished business to catch up with.  What I can guarantee, is that we will make up for it big time in the next few weeks. 

The real bummer is that fall arrived while we were out of commission.  We had plans…fairs, orchards, and Saturday night get-togethers in jeans.  This week we had to be happy with little reminders of the season.  Like new fall clothes and sweater tights to die for.

Time inside with candles and board games.  Lexi won for the record:)



And an afternoon trip to Starbucks.  I don’t think you’re supposed to start a sentence with and.  Oh well.


Mark and Brian and several guy friends went to the cottage this weekend and cleared out all the furniture and everything else.  Since we were flying solo, Em came over with the girls Saturday night for a quiet hang out evening.

I think we had about 12 place settings and 6 people.  Each person had a plethora of utensils to choose from.

Today was moving the cottage home day.  It was a tremendous amount of work and I’m so thankful for a husband that works so hard.  It was 2 days of loading and unloading heavy furniture.



Now comes my part…joining two households worth of “stuff” together.  I love that the table is now in our kitchen to continue gathering friends and family to eat, drink, and be merry.




Here’s to a healthy week!
