Christmas In July?

Not for us!

We're all about Halloween!

Lexie insisted that she was a Princess Ninja Police Girl. I didn't have the heart to tell her that she looked like a turtle with that mask on!

Oh, who am I kidding? They dress up everyday! Today, they took it a step further by saying, "Happy Halloween!"

In other news...

Have I mentioned that I'm officially addicted to Nutella? I think I need help!

Five years ago, when my "German" brother lived with my parents as a foreign exchange student, he brought his own Nutella. For a year, he insisted that I try it, but I kept refusing.

On Friday, I finally bought a jar. The first taste brought tears of joy to my eyes. I am a Nutella addict. As are my husband and son.

I was seriously missing out on one of the tastiest foods ever!

And I thought I had issues with my peanut butter addiction.

On Friday, I had to drop off my sewage payment at the sewage plant. It was after hours, and as I pulled up near the deposit box, I noticed something very interesting.

The sewage plant has satellite TV! The satellite dish was conveniently hidden.

Really? Does a sewage plant need satellite TV?

Yesterday, as we were playing outside, I found an empty rabbit nest underneath the playhouse portion of Dylan and Lexie's playset.

We have had a rabbit living in our yard for the past few months, but I can't believe there was a nest filled with baby bunnies right where my kids played everyday! They had to step on the nest constantly! I also can't believe that my dog didn't discover them.

Tonight, at dinner, Dylan saw a baby bunny eating right outside our kitchen window. A few minutes later, the adult rabbit hopped out to join the baby! Lexie loves rabbits, so she was glued to that window for the next half hour!

I think they're cute, so I left them a little treat of apples and carrots next to the bush they hide under!

Happy Monday! I'm off to end it with some fruit dipped in Nutella!

  6. I've never tried Nutella, and with Buddy's allergies, I'm afraid to now, because I don't want yet another thing in the house that he can't eat. *sigh*

    LOL at your comment about Lexie looking like a turtle.

  15. I don't know why Nutella is such a secret! I just read a novel where the girl tried it for the first time in Italy...anyway... Nutella is amazing. it's basically the stuff that is in the middle of a ferrero roche chocolate? Those are the best!!! It's all about the hazlenut!
