Fun Weekend

 Alaina and Ruby spent the night with us this weekend. Here's some of the fun we had.


Ruby has to read books each night for school, so she read this puppy book to Bob.



After that we made something fun.  We used Kisses, Nutter Butter bites, peanut butter chips and mini chocolate chips.




The Nutter Butter Bites had to be opened up and the frosting scraped off.




Ruby was scraping off frosting too.  While they did that, I melted the peanut butter chips and Bob was unwrapping the kisses.

We put a little of the melted peanut butter chips on each Nutter Butter Bite and pressed a kiss on top.




Here's what they looked like.
Then, we put just a dot of melted peanut butter chips on the cookie bit and put a mini chocolate chip in it to make the stem.





Here's the finished product - cute little acorn bites!




The next morning, we put them in little bags and gave them away for a little Fall treat.  Alaina and Ruby each kept a bag to take home.




We stopped at Great Grandpa and Great Grandma's house and had lunch.  

My Dad was outside because my brother was there doing a little digging so they could have their septic tank pumped.

When the girls got done with lunch, they went outside.



My brother put them to work throwing the big chunks of dirt out of the hole.  Dad and my sister Cheri were keeping an eye on things!




I asked Alaina to show me the big chunk of dirt she had, and I got this pose.




After they got done with digging, my brother Duane walked out with them to check the apple trees and taste a few!






Alaina came back with this leaf to show me the pretty Fall colors.

And then it was time to go back home.  We always have fun together!

Oh, those acorns you all made are so cute:) It sure looks like a lovely day and I bet your dad and Anne were happy to see you and the girls.

Hi MARI - great to see you and your family having a great time together. There are times now that I regret not having our own children- we've certainly missed out on a great gift in life. Best Wishes. KEV. (Australia).

Ah yes, septic time. We dug ours out just the other day too.

We have an ancient apple tree. We've never sprayed it or tended it to try and get good apples. Whatever little apples it manages to produce, the deer end up with a fall treat. I was looking at it a few days ago and saw the tree has dropped them all, and the deer have already cleared what hit the ground.

Those acorn bites are adorable!!!! Oh my gosh, I should make some of those.
