pushing daisies

Everyone needs to keep watching and if you haven't seen it yet set your TiVo so you won't miss it! It's one of my favorite shows and it is in risk of being cancelled!!!! I love how strange the show and characters are, I love all the goofy plot lines and the bright colors used!! Give it a shot and I think you will be glad you did! far

So I know I said " Never Again", but what the heck I thought I could give camping another try. So this time we camped up at Pier Marquette. It was a nice little camp site. They had great bathrooms! Lauren and I were pumped about that! It was pretty cold outside, but we stayed cozy next to the fire and in our tents...Mike and I just snuggled up together...It wasn't too bad at all. The next day Mike and Jason made breakfast and we wondered around Grafton and then headed up to Eckerts to get some tasty apples! It was a really fun weekend and the weather was

pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere!

listening to the band at Eckerts

This is the result of stinky little squirrels getting into my flower pots! This has gone on ALL summer and for the last two weeks I have had these flowers on my front porch! It has been driving my nuts, but I've been trying to be patient....Today I found a scene much worse then this so I took a deep breath and swept up the soil and put it back into the pots. Well- not 15min later I looked out our door window and saw

I put Zoe on watch duty.... And told Mike to do whatever it takes to get rid of the squirrel...

While I was gone.....

This is what he came up with......

Caught him in 25 min! poor little guy!

my survivor

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Just wanted to honor my grandma a bit for being a 9 year survivor of Breast Cancer. She is the strongest women I know. I thank my Heavenly Father everyday for blessing my life with her. She is an example beyond words!
Love you!
