Finally got the caterpillar costume done for Hunter (thank goodness, because he needs it Thursday!). He's going to be The Very Hungry Caterpillar for Storybook Character Day at school. He thought it was going to be a fun costume, but now he wishes I'd made a scarier, more macho character. Wish in one hand, spit in the other...

After an excrutiatingly long wait (almost three hours!) to get the kids and the adults flu shots, we were on our way to New Mexico! Hunter and I hadn't been to the mountains in four years, and the girls had never been at all.
The weather was wonderful, sunny and warm in the 70s. We enjoyed the scenic drive (Hadley didn't like the drop-outs on some of the roads). The trees were turning for fall, and the air was clean.
We tried to get a family picture for Christmas cards...not too sure if we succeeded, but we'll probably use one of them anyway. How can we get five people to all look the same way (and not have goofy looks) at the same time?
It was fun to get away, but much better to be back home in my own bed! Try Eagle Nest or Red River, NM if you ever want an inexpensive trip in the fall!

I hosted a Pampered Chef catalog party (OK, so there's no party, but who's getting picky!), and now I'm going to get myself a Cranberry Deep Covered Baker! I LOVE that thing (I saw it at my cousin M'Leah's house--she's the consultant)! I am so happy I could jump for joy! Phil thinks it's big and wonders where I'm going to put it. I'm pushing something out of the way, 'cause this thing is coming home to Mama! This thing rocks!
