Yeah, I fell off the blogging wagon. Why? Because I ran out of room! All those photos my cell phone has been uploading at 4000 pixels wide took their toll. I’ve managed to clean up a little bit of space, so we’re going to try to do a few posts.
To wrap up the year, enjoy a photo gallery of the notable events in October:
Yes, we finally called and had junky moved… so theymoved him a few blocks away. Ha ha!
The bathroom cupboard in all it’s glory. Not a bad craigslist find for 25$
More of the bathroom

Timmy’s birthday party in Plattsmouth
The toll bridge

And thus began the mailbox wars because there is NO regulation size concerning private wall mounted boxes and our mailbox was not too small, technically. After writing them a letter telling them this, and an exchange of phone calls, our mail was not suspended. However, we did order a new one anyway because we had already planned to before Christmas cards started roilng in
fixing the kitchen walls. That cut out will be a set of shelves someday
our big tree
From hubby for our 15th anniversary
The laundry room pipes are replaced and the leak is gone. Hallelujah!
Enchiladas. Something that actaully cooks well in the electric skillet.
Hubby and I took a trip to Waubonsie State Park
Atlantic, IA looks very autumn
a very cool house (it is now torn down completely)
lost on back roads
Still fixing the kitchen walls
My jewelry party went well
Halloween! We ended up using almost all of this on trick or treaters!
Mom’s new haircut
waiting to hand out candy
Trick or Treat! This was like something from a TV show – it was awesome! I have never seen so many trick or treaters before!
As you can see we didn’t get much done on the house. I spent most of my time working on book covers and such, hubby spent his time working at his job, and the brother spent a lot of it sick. But it was still a good month and every little bit counts. Right?
Except November tomorrow.
Have a good one!
