The Train

The Kobies took advantage of the Minneapolis light rail system last weekend. We took the train downtown for dinner on Saturday night. Lucy was so excited. She even got to have her own ticket. Here we are on the way to dinner.
Here are Lucy and Jer on the way home. There weren't very many people on the train, so Lucy got to pick her own seat. She thought the 'sideways' seats were so neat.
I have to say, even with both girls, it was pretty easy. I think we just might have to do it again sometime.

Talented Friends

I have talented friends. I steal ideas from them all of the time. This one, however, exceeds my abilities. My friend from church, Melinda, made the most adorable hat for her daughter. I went crazy for it when I saw it. She said that if I got her the yarn, she would make one for my girls as well! At MOPS this morning, I got the hats.
A pink one for Ellen and not only a hat, but a matching scarf for Lucy!
Unfortunately, Lucy's hat was too small.
Sad about the hat, but she hasn't taken the scarf off since she got it.

I have more yarn. . . Melinda??

Happy Halloween

Despite our 'spooky' sickness this year, we managed to squeak in some Halloween fun. Lucy and I carved her pumpkin before we started to feel under the weather. One of the highlights for Lucy was sorting out the pumpkin seeds from the goop.
We baked the seeds with brown sugar and Cinnamon this year. We ate the seeds for a mid-morning snack. I had mine with coffee, so Lucy needed her drink in a little coffee cup too.
By Halloween, Lucy and Ellen had both been fever free for 24 hours, so we decided to let them dress up and Jer took Lucy to a few houses to trick-or-treat.

No candy for Ellen this year, but she did have sweet potatoes for her supper. At least they are orange. . .
Here Lucy is getting ready to fill her bucket.
If a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, then I guess Halloween is a good time to be sick. Lucy had some M&Ms to wash her medicine down.
