We're Still Here

So, I feel like I should have a bunch of things to blog about since it's been over a week (gasp!) since I last blogged. But really, there just isn't a whole lot going on up here. Fall is here, and it's been fun seeing the trees on the mountains turn yellow. Which seems to be the only color they really turn here. But it's still pretty.


Snow has also started forming on some of the higher mountain tops around us. That's fun. I guess. Soon enough it'll be all over the ground too.


Otherwise, wer're just hanging out, doing our thing. I went to a prayer shawl knitting group that our church here has. It was very nice. There were four of us there last night, but it was neat getting to know some of the other ladies who go to the same church as us. It was also fun to get together with ladies and knit.

The boys are still wild and crazy guys. Some new favorite activities are walking around in my slippers and houseshoes...



Playing with the new "car ramp" Daddy put up for them, which usually winds up being Zeke lining up all the cars in front of the fireplace as Deacon hands them to him, then Zeke sends them all down the ramp all willy-nilly like, then Deacon "gets" to fetch the cars and give them back to Zeke...



And then there's still the love of reading. Here are both boys reading Dr. Seuss books. He's a favorite around here...


And that's really all from Walterland at the moment. Hope you enjoyed the update.

I enjoyed the update! Love the car ramp - and the very specific roles that go with it. :) How nice that you got to knit with some other ladies, too!

I love the update!

It always cracks me up when -- like your boys -- one of my girls seems to be doing all the playing and the other all the working... because they don't seem to mind at all.

And those mountains against that sky? Wow! But snow? Double wow! It's a good thing I'm slowly making the transition back to four seasons...

Lovin' the update and the pictures of the mountains!! I miss our knitting group!! :-( And I love how Zeke has Deacon working for him without Deacon knowing he's working. Hahahaha! I can't wait to see what Jack tries to pull with Ty. And YEAH for Dr. Seuss!!

Can't wait to hear what you think of AK in the winter! We may be going to Germany next - we'll see though. I would love somewhere new.

That car ramp looks very familiar. Too bad Josh didn't have a little brother to do the fetching for him.

I like your chicken salad idea - I will try that next time! We host men's Bible study lunches and I'm always looking for something easy and delicious to make when it's my turn. Thanks for the idea!
