October fun

We've been so busy this month (and last) with school, projects around the house, and just having fun.  Here's a quick post on what we've been up to this month.

Our house sustained quite a bit of mild damage in some hail storms this summer.  We didn't realize we had much damage until a friend was over and we somehow got on the topic.  He inspected our roof for us (he's a roofer) and suggested it may be a good idea to have our insurance company come out and take a look.  Sure enough, not only did we need a new roof, but the house needed to be repainted too.  Rob and the boys took on the job of painting the house.  We were happy to give them the opportunity to learn through some hard work.  They (the boys) were happy to get paid! :)
Same color, just a bit brighter 'cause it's new paint. ;)
I got a red door!  It makes me smile. :) 

We had a fairly mild cold go through.  I think it hit me hardest since I was up with little ones and didn't have much time to goes on.  It may have turned into a sinus infection, but thanks to lots of home remedies and essential oils I'm on the mend.
Mommy's bed is always the best place to be when you're not feeling well.

Lot's of love around here...
Some fun...

A trip to the zoo!  The boys worked so hard on painting the house and got it done in only 1 weekend!  We'd planned for the job to take 2-3 weekends, so we had a free weekend.  It's so nice having the family pass this year, we just went for the morning and everyone had a great time.
All ready for the zoo with her tiger blanket!
It's fun to feed the giraffes!

Baby girl learned to crawl!  She does not think she is a baby anymore and seems to think that she should be able to play with all of the big kid toys.  Some of us are more excited than others about this new development.

Ah, it's fall.  That means apples!  Lots and lots of apples for apple butter, apple sauce, apple pie.  We've been peeling, processing of all...eating!

Well, that's some of what we've been up to.
