We stopped off at Real Deals in AF or PG and browsed for some fall decor. I bought a set of indians and a turkey, along with some awesome tassels. The gold and reddish one is for our guest bathroom and the other two are for the end chairs in our dining room. The store had them displayed this way and I thought they looked awesome. (Update: Um, yeah, the two for the dining room chairs looked wrong in our house so I'm not sure where I will put them now. Maybe I'll sell them on eBay or something.) They were only 10 bucks each which was a steal! Normally, tassels this long, this big, and with metal caps and integrated beads would be at least $40 each. I am having to leave most of my stuff here in Utah until Melon Man and I come back in a few weeks for Jack's (Kolby's) priesthood ordination since I can't carry it onto the plane due to limited carry-on space.
Jen started to get a little woozie, so she headed out to the van to wait for us. I quickly paid for my items and headed out with her. Across the street was this house with these GORGEOUS flowers in front.
After Real Deals, we went to PG to go to the Holy Cow craft boutique. It was similar to a mini Briar Patch. Only bought a set of pilgrims and some spicy chipotle dip mix. Yum. We wheeled Jen in a wheelchair this time and we (and she) were glad we did. I don't think she would have been able to do it otherwise. It was fun to be together and get her out of the house so she didn't go stir crazy. As we were heading out of the building, there was a sign for "Big Buns." What in the heck? OH MY. They were selling these twisted dough twist thingies. OH MY. We got one cinnamon roll flavor, one pepperoni flavor, and one garlic flavor. They were SO good. We scarfed them down since we were all starving (obviously, since there are no pictures of the twist thingies, only of Jen and Jules). Mmmmm....good.
Soon it was time to start making dinner for the family. Jen's neighbors and camp ladies have been so nice to bring in meals a few times, even though I've been here. Tonight was an off night so I made dinner. We decided to have Bacon Cheese Casserole, peas, left over corn on the cob for those who don't like peas, and salad. We had no egg noodles so we just used shells. It was yummy and comforting. We spent the rest of the night watching some shows they like to watch and now everyone is in bed, except me. Early morning choir and school pictures for Cristobal, lunch with Grandma E, laundry, and a date with Cristobal and Tato Bug all on tap for tomorrow. Also want to try to do a quick drive up the canyon tomorrow to see the leaves that have been changing already. Can see some red patches on the mountains from the valley, but bet they are completely GORGEOUS up close.
Nervous about leaving Jen on Saturday, but know she's in good hands with Julie and her friend Stephanie who lives just two doors down. Am GRATEFUL that I've been able to have this time with Jen and provide some service to her and her family. Probably haven't been the biggest help, but have tried to keep things in tow.
YOU ARE SO DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOLOL!!! I love Julie's comment! I think it is funny! Looks like you all had so much fun!
Love that you sisters can entertain yourselves. That's usually how it is at Jennifers except it's from the other end. Taylor kills us everytime.
