Really Random Thursday, 10/3/13

I love to go to Barnes and Noble. I fear the demise of brick and mortar bookstores as they have so much to offer. Gabe already loves to go the bookstore and play with Thomas the Train,
and they send out coupons for Cheesecake Factory cupcakes when you have a birthday.
Levi started soccer,
and Mark spends his weekends reffing football.
It's pumpkin spice season

and this is how I justify a cube of real butter and a whole box of powdered sugar in a recipe--you balance it with sugar free cake mix and low fat cream cheese.
It's awkward when your motorcycle doesn't have a trunk for packages,
and this is for my "sister," Carla.

Your turn.

  5. oh, that first pix brings back memories of me taking my toddlers and preschoolers to the toy store to look at the trains. do you have to pull away little Gabe kicking and screaming because he doesn't want to go yet?

  6. That birthday cupcake looks like it is being enjoyed! Ahh yes, soccer season is here. I hope you have a comfortable chair packed in your trunk.

    I often think the people in those Smart cars must have the same problem as that couple on the mortorcycle have.

  9. My boys have always loved playing with Thomas at the bookstore too...though now the oldest two are too old for that. The youngest could still spend hours there, which is convenient when the rest of us want to wander and browse the books.

  13. LOL! Good one! And most people don't realize there is actually a street that runs down the state line road, aptly named State Line Road. Driving north you are in Missouri, and south you are in Kansas! You better share that recipe, sister!
