Life with Snow at the end of October

First Snow October 08

Can you believe it? That’s right, you are seeing the first snow in October. I was very surprised when I woke up this morning.Too bad I didn’t grab the snow suit for Ian when I saw it. Who would have thought it would have snowed this early.

First Snow October 08

My 21 birthday turned out pretty good this year. I got some great things! First off, a crockpot. My Husband had to special order it since you cannot order them here. I made my first chili in it last night and it turned out to be a hit. Many more yummy easy meals to come with this thing! My Husband also got me a camera tripod. I finally don’t have to set up a pile of books to take a self portrait! Thanks so much!

My family back home also treated me well with some money towards my macro lens. I am working towards enough money to purchase one…those things aren’t cheap! Oh Oh and I got some beautiful roses with two heart balloons. Everyone treated me really well on my big 21. Oh wait, I also got money from my Mother and Father In-law toward my lens and my Brother-in-law gave me a pass to a indoor/outdoor waterpark. Wahoo! Thanks everyone for treating me so well.

Lunch Time With Ian

Now that the birthday times are over, I have been busy completing classes for school, which have been keeping me super busy. My Java programming is going alright. We are required to write about 10 programs a week, take a quiz, and do a discussion or exam. I am doing all this along with my history class. So I have been keeping on my toes!

Lunch Time With Ian

Ian is doing well. He is talking more and more every week. He now has learned to say thank you. My boy is so polite..well most of the time. He has started to pinch again. He knows it is wrong because he says oww when he does it and then shakes his finger like “no-no”. I guess this will pass..just hopefully soon.

Lunch Time With Ian

Have a great Thursday and Happy Halloween tomorrow.

I'm glad you had such a great birthday. Crock pots are FANTASTIC. Our favorite is to try new marinades and let them simmer with a big hunk of beef all day. Stew is another favorite. Enjoy :)
