Oh What a November Weekend! Wednesday Edition

Note:  Written on Monday, postponed till today!
It was the annual Fancy Pants Mall fireworks, and we were so very excited to have Penny join us.  Here is where reality meets my romantic notions.  Penny bundled like a burrito against the cold loved the fireworks...for one second!  After the first few went off,  she exploded into tears and screams.  "Get me out of here!"  Things only got worst when we started to walk away.  Then she screamed "Santa!"  It took almost until the end of the display to get back to the car where Penny had a remarkable recovery.  We went for pizza and then for ice cream and everything was fine.  I told her next year we would just send her a video like we've done the last couple of years.  She simply said, "DON'T!"

The cousins came and spent the afternoon.   Another romantic notion, a nice walk in the Autumn sunshine, but the reality was kids spinning on light poles,one in particular... falling into the grass, refusing to walk, hold hands or cooperate.  They played nicely at home,  They enjoyed a doll house we found at the thrift and even found a bunch of little people to play inside. Then just when our visit was ending, our poor little bug hit her head after walking out my door.  An unhappy ending to a mostly happy visit.  I love that the cousins love each other and get along so well.  We were in bed early and exhausted,

 A super early romp in the leaves and a trip to The Grove in Glenview.
 All the familiar things we visited in the warm weather were closed, but it was such a beautiful day..
 Walking the trails,,,
 Seeing the sights...
Enjoying the remarkable weather on November 15th! Enjoying the hard work of being a Grandma!

Now it's Wednesday and the weather has taken a dramatic turn,  Wind and rain, gloom that we have been spared from most of this Autumn has arrived..  Listening to Christmas music as I make my menu for Thanksgiving, 8 days away!  Have a great week my friends.

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy this beautiful day.
