Happy 7th Birthday Mimi....with 7 Moose!

 Our little Princess turns 7 this morning
she got a new bike.
 So yesterday, I know we were a day early on this present
we decided to take it out for a spin.
 It was so beautiful out with all the colors.
 and then it started to rain......
 its not snow yet.....although we had our first frost.

 The other morning we looked out the window and in our backyard were
7 moose. A bull moose, 2 mommas and 4 babies.
It was hard to get a great picture because it was still
so dark.

On another note our oldest decided to sign up to donate blood
at school, so I signed the papers and when he came home
yesterday I asked how it went and he said he fainted.

poor thing had a terrible headache. I asked was it the needle and he said they 
never got that far.....I think he had worked himself up over it.
I told him its the thought that counts.

Have a super rest of the week to you all.....

A little dirty laundry....

 I someday will be able to move into my new laundry room 
downstairs but until then....
 I dream of new front load washer and dryers in fun colors
they are soooo dreamy. they almost run themselves!
until then I'm so thankful these oldies but goodies
still keep on working....with my 2-3 loads a day!

when I finally get to move into the new space,
this will be a wonderful storage room!
I hope your all having a wonderful weekend
I'm unwinding after having Cory's birthday/sleepover
last night.......they were all wonderful and he had a 
great time thats all that matters.

Mid-Century heaven......just the coolest!
