The kids went into the costume basket this week and decided what they wanted to be for Halloween: 3 Spidermen and a snow angel. Now I need to figure out how to dress them for All Saints Day. Last year they were:
St. Michael, Pope John Paul II, Mary, and St. Francis
We went to a Cranberry Festival last weekend.
It was fun, but busy and over 80 degrees!!
Do you know how they harvest cranberries?
First, they flood the bogs:
Then they use a machine that pulls the cranberries off the vines:
and then the cranberries float.
Then they corral the berries:
and they get sucked up a tube onto a truck to go to the Ocean Spray plant:
Lots of work for some Thanksgiving sauce!
Phil and I both went to the doctor this week. Results: he has a double ear infection (requiring antibiotics) and an inflammation in his lungs that requires steroids. I have an ear infection, also requiring antibiotics. Luckily the kids seem okay...so far.
For Phil's 31st birthday, we celebrated with chinese food and a cookie cake. He didn't want a fuss, but the kids and I like to party :)
Yes it's pink, but he was secure enough to eat it.
I lost 2.6 pounds this week. I swear it was because I wore less clothes than I normally do. And I wore less clothes because I knew it would have been a "gain" week otherwise. Total weight loss my first month was 9 pounds. Ten more to go!
Have a great weekend everyone!
