threesixfive, days 244 thru 250

we had another busy but super fun week. i'll get straight to the pictures!

sunday, day 244
we got to swim in the pool at the dell diamond during the game, and allen invited all the youth workers. this is our friend justine. shes awesome!

monday, day 245
happy labor day! it was a beautiful day here--didnt get above 100 and stayed in the 80's till about noon. we spent the morning outside flying kites, playing with sidewalk chalk, etc. fall is so close i can almost smell it!

tuesday, day 246
my mom invited us for a last minute trip to the zoo, so we did school in the car on the way there (its about an hour and a half drive) and spent the rest of the day with the animals. they were really vocal and active! i think they can smell fall coming, too. :-) the first picture is molly and my mom swinging like monkeys. the second one is a meerkat. i couldve sat there and watched those things all day.

wednesday, day 247

allen and i have been putting spare change in a jar for ten years with the idea of cashing it in for our tenth anniversary, which is in a couple weeks. i spent a few hours counting and rolling coins, then took them to the bank for our prize. we'll have plenty of spending money on our trip to maine!

thursday, day 248

i found a recipe on pinterest and happened to have the ingredients to make it. broccoli cheese bites. yum! 16oz frozed chopped broccoli thawed (i used fresh steamed), 2 eggs, 1 cup bread crumbs, 1 & 1/2 cups shredded cheese, salt to taste. mix it all together and make patties, then cook them on a wax paper baking sheet at 375 for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through. theyre delicious.

friday, day 249

im making a fabric wreath. after much deliberation and time at the fabric store, i finally commited to the method and fabic choices. its coming along nicely, although my fingers hate me for picking burlap. :-/ i'll share a picture of it when its done and hanging on my front door.

saturday, day 250
last week i saw these acorn treats on one of your blogs (sarahs maybe?). i, along with the help of allen and the kids, made a tray of them to take to a football party tonight. i hope they'll be a hit.

i hope everyone is enjoying the slightly cooler weather, or much cooler depending on where you're at. we've been keeping up with all the wildfires in the news this week; thats all happening right around us, although we havent been directly affected we know people that have. we continue to pray for rain daily, and that no one else will be harmed by the drought and fires that are so rampant down here.

have a blessed week!!

Mmm - those broccoli bits look really good. I might have to try them sometime.

I wish we'd saved our change for our 20th anniversary - why it might have gotten us out of credit card debt :)
