Double Digits

Last Sunday we celebrated Kaden’s 10th birthday at Culvers. Double digits! I can’t believe how fast the time has gone and what an incredible young man he is growing up to be.

Both boys are here this weekend. Kaden is feeling a bit under the weather and Remi is a whirling dervish of energy. Their parents are both out trying to slay a deer this weekend. 🙂 I love having the kids visit and I hate when they leave, which will be soon. Then I intend to curl up with a book and watch what may be my last NASCAR race. My driver, Matt Kenseth, doesn’t have a ride for next year and he has not used the dreaded “R” word yet, but I watch because of him and really don’t have another driver I want to follow. It will be interesting to fill my summer and fall Sundays with something new.

Little Girl in the House

We had little girl stay overnight on Friday so her mom could go have some fun with friends. Papa served up breakfast for dinner and Natalie shared the song she sung with her class at the school’s Veteran’s Day program and impressed Nana with her math skills. Then Aunt Z.Z. got home from work and she and Natalie watched the first Harry Potter movie to end the night. Up early Saturday to help make breakfast and create more artwork for my door before it was time for her to go home. The time just flew by and the house is way too quiet. I can’t believe we didn’t take a single picture. This is one from a previous visit. Five and full up spunk. That’s my girl!

DID YOU REMEMBER TO TURN YOUR CLOCKS BACK ONE HOUR LAST NIGHT?

Remember when the day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday, marked the beginning of the Christmas Season. Now it is November 1, the day after Halloween, although Best Buy was running holiday commercials the week of Halloween. Each year seems to start earlier making each year rush past faster than the last. I do most of my holiday shopping online with a 1 day shopping trip with Mr. Dollycas to get things in the local stores, but I haven’t even started my lists yet.

So what these commercials signify to me is that I need to start planning for the end of the year and next year on my blog. Adding the January and beyond new releases to my calendar(I have added several already), planning giveaways for my Blogoversary on December 31, booking authors for Cozy Wednesdays and booking 2018 Great Escapes Book Tours. Updating my Literary Escapes Pages with all my 2017 Reads and doing a little general maintenance.

It also means setting up Reading Challenges. I host 3 and plan to host them again next year. I was shocked yesterday to see another blogger has posted a challenge for next year already almost exactly like one of mine with a grand prize way over what I can afford. I hope I don’t lose to many participants. Several other 2018 Challenges are up on A Novel Challenge too, which means I need to get my butt in gear.

So watch for details for my Alphabet Soup Challenge, my Craving for Cozies Challenge and my Literary Escape Challenge for 2018. They all have Facebook Groups so if you haven’t joined them you can join at any time. They will have new pages here on the blog too, but I love the ability to share books we are reading in the groups. This year there will be more giveaways and some special events too.

Here are the Facebook links – Alphabet Soup Challenge, Craving for Cozies Challenge, and Literary Escapes Challenge.

I also have another idea for a new challenge but need to think on it a bit more 🙂

Pumpkins & Apples

Last Sunday we braved the wind and chilly temps to enjoy the day at Waldvogel’s Farm. Mr. Dollycas and I haven’t been there for about 17 years, when we took our kids to the pumpkin patch to get their pumpkins. The place has really changed. They now charge admission with over 40 things to do and plenty of neat places for pictures like this huge swing. I love family days like this.

The grands also had their picture taken with some animals. Look closely, that is a piglet behind Natalie 🙂

Alpine Ranch Pics and Ponies

Then yesterday was a Natalie day which meant a visit to the Tom Dooley Orchard. We came home with cookies, pies, apple butter, honey, and apples to make kuchen and crisps. They also had pumpkins, like this one. 

I love these weekends, we have to squeeze in as many outdoor things before the snow flies. I always have a huge smile after days like these.

Katy was taking the picture 🙂

It was rainy, the field was muddy, Kaden hurt his finger and they lost, but we still had fun. It was Kaden’s last football game of the year and they finished the season 4 – 2. The kids have improved so much over the past 6 weeks. Kaden can’t wait until next year and neither can I. In fact, if his mom Katy has her way, Kaden’s brother Remi and his cousin, Natalie will start their football careers next year. Just watching them play on the sidelines yesterday I can already see Natalie is quite a passer and Remi could be a great receiver with a little coaching. Natalie did play soccer last Spring but thinking football may be a better fit 🙂 I see a lot of time on the sidelines in my future and that makes me smile. Some of my best memories are sitting in the bleachers watching my kids play baseball, basketball, volleyball and soccer, and I am thrilled to start making new sports memories with my grandchildren no matter what sport they play.

It was an early wake up yesterday to get to Kaden’s football game and then he came home with us but Remi went home with the other set of grandparents. Remi is such a little stinker. I really miss having him spend time here too. We made a quick trip to Game Stop on the way home and found an Xbox game Kaden wanted at an unbelievable price so he is pretty self sufficient for the rest of the day or at least until the Badger game starts :).

My youngest daughter had a shift change at work last week that means no more working weekends. We are going to celebrate next weekend when all 3 grandkids will be here. We will have to see what weather we have before we make our plans but anytime together makes me smile.

Our Day started yesterday with the Walk For Hope/Suicide Prevention and Awareness.

It was 93 DEGREES!!

We are blessed with this wonderful family and a little heat was not enough to keep us from remembering Kris on this day
and earn money to help others in an effort to #StopSuicide.

The walk ended about noon and then we needed to travel about 90 minutes away for Kaden’s football game. He made some awesome plays and his team is 3-0 this season. I felt so sorry the kids in those uniforms running around, we were melting on the sidelines as the temp climbed to 95 and there was very little shade. The played in Division 3 college stadium which was really cool.


Then the grandkids came home with us for a sleepover! They should be going home sometime early this afternoon, then Nana and Papa may need to take a quick nap before the Packer Game. I may be watching the NASCAR race through my eyelids.

This was a difficult week for me, hard to stay on task and made some really stupid mistakes. Thankfully nothing that couldn’t be fixed. At least I know why. Last week was Suicide Prevention Week and Friday was the 30 month anniversary of my son’s death. I struggled all week because I wanted to put posts on social media for suicide awareness and I did, but I still just can’t wrap my head around the fact that it has been 30 months that he has been gone. So the week was rough but to I have so share another thing I am trying to wrap my head around. A Happy Thing! Last Saturday went spent part of the day at a football game. Kaden’s 1st game of the season and when we arrived, this is who greeted us.

Kaden in a uniform complete with a helmet and pads. Still touch, no tackling but WOW what a step up from last Spring. 

He played his first away game yesterday and his team won by 3 touchdowns. We will have a busy Saturday next week with a Suicide Prevention Walk For Hope in the morning and then going to another away game for Kaden in the afternoon. I have a feeling as the grandkids continue to grow our traveling around the state is going to increase and I am thrilled about that.

It has been a rough few weeks here in the U.S. Our prayers go out to all those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma and those affected by and fighting the wildfires out west. There will be a telethon on television on Tuesday night and ABC had a “Day of Giving” last week. While both these efforts and the Red Cross seems focused on hurricane relief you can also give to the Red Cross for those affected by the wildfires.

Back to School

The three grands went back to school this past week. Kaden in 4th Grade, Natalie in 5K and Remi in 4K. They are growing so fast and summer ended much too soon for this Nana. I am so excited for them and what this new year brings. Their smiles sure make me smile. 🙂
