We had a mini fall break with Friday off last week for conferences at school.
In true Boedie fashion, we took our empty calendar and . . .
Dude had a hitting lesson. FINALLY he had a hitting lesson. He’s been driving me crazy since his back has felt better. Thank goodness we could get him back in for a lesson! He had a blast and did great
Princess and I made halters for her American Girl Doll horses. It’s amazing what some ribbon, a couple of tiny rings, and a little hot glue can do!
Dude went north of Denver ALL DAY Saturday and played airsoft with his buddies. All. Day. Long. He came back pock-marked and scraped up and dirty and smiling from ear to ear!
We decorated for Halloween. Among other things, we finally have the space to display (and store!) a giant spider I’ve always wanted. He’s proudly hanging out on his glow in the dark spider web on our deck. He’s even got flashing red eyes!
We carved pumpkins. Hubby and Dude carved pumpkins. Princess and I went a different route this year.
Hubby’s caterpillar pumpkin
(those are glow in the dark spots)
Dude’s traditional pumpkin
Princess’s Frankenstein pumpkin, complete with glow in the dark decorations
My boring glow in the dark (but better under a blacklight) dripping paint pumpkin (my wrist disallows carving – boo hoo!)
We did 7 loads of laundry.
Enjoyed time in the hot tub.
Went to ride and play with Cowboy. Seriously, this girl would just sit in his stall or in the pasture and “be” with him all the time if she could!
Watched a movie Saturday night.
Princess and I worked on our puzzle.
Painted our nails for Halloween.
Dude bought a ukulele and a method book at the guitar store. Then he bought some “training tools” on iTunes and taught himself how to play the ukulele. He says it’s soothing and fun and he can’t wait to be sitting around a campfire just strumming his ukulele after he gets better at it. Love his eclectic self and attitude! Princess sat in his room for a LONG time listening to him learn to play. (Click the link to open the video and listen.)
Watched the Packers kick butt and the Vikings slip up.
So ya – that’s what we did – how about you?
