What a weekend......On Trinity's birthday on Friday, we spent the afternoon with Christian and Mallory Topel, Trinity's best buddies since she was 2 months old! We decided to wait until the evening to celebrate with my dad, his girlfriend and her son.
What a special girl I've been blessed with. Not once all day did Trinity even ask for or about gifts.
Saturday was interesting.....right before bed Bruce let Lulu,our dog, outside to do her business. Suddenly I heard him yelling desperately for her to get into the house.
A skunk had walked right in front of Bruce (head-toward him, thankfully.) Lulu being a dog, of course had to sniff the skunks rear-end. She got a mouthful of the raunchiest stench I've ever smelled! It smells like a funky, musky, sulfury rotten poison.
After Bruce hosed her off she spent the night upstairs, away from the rest of the family. The house STILL smells like skunk. Not a lot, but you can tell there was a skunk around recently.Sunday, I went to church. Since children's church is now on Wednesday evenings, it's hard to have Trinity come to church with us. She's fidgety and it's hard for her to stay quiet.
So, Bruce took her to buy a pumpkin while I went to church.
We relaxed, watched a little of "The Office" on DVD, watched some football, and a little bit of "Tron."
Later we braved the 45 mile per hour winds and explored a tree in our backyard that has huge mushrooms growing on it. I've never seen anything like it. Very strange. Maybe I'll post some pictures.
Back to school and work today. It's starting to feel like late fall and some snow has even fallen in the area. Didn't we just have snow???? Oh yeah, like 9 feet of it!!!
