What I've been up to in the past couple of months.

  • Baseball games attended: Twins vs. Blue Jays
  • Cities visited: Rochester
  • Ice creams made: Peaches, Rocky Road, Campfire, Strawberry Cheesecake, Pumpkin
  • Projects completed: garbage disposal installation, storm door repair, fire pit construction, new ramp on chicken coop, play kitchen

  • Video games purchased: Minecraft
  • # of mice captured: 4
  • # of days our road has been under construction: over 9,000
  • Getting ready for bath time, Natalie looks carefully at my swallow tattoos, then looks down at her own chest. "Where my birds?"
  • Natalie is enamored with the hens. She loves to throw them food, check for eggs, "chase chickens" and try to "hug" them.
  • Natalie loved Halloween. She held out her bag and said, "trick or treat" and "thank you" very politely.
  • She calls me and Jenna "you guys."
  • She thinks that it's hilarious to call things the wrong name. "Good girl, daddy," she tells me. "You good girl."

"You guys" - I love it! My niece used to call her uncle "That man." "Can you tell that man I'm ready to go back to the hotel?"
