We have been trying to purchase mini iPad's for the students at school.  We finally got them after working to buy them for several weeks.  Apple doesn't want to sell them to a school through a retailer.  They have to be purchase directly from Apple.  I have been putting the screen savers on them, today.

Day 322, Wednesday, November 18, 2015

Today was Grandparents Day at school.  There were about 200 grandparents who ate lunch with their grandchild.  They came to the library where they could adopt a book for their grandchild and I took their picture with their grandchild.

Day 321, Tuesday, November 17, 2015

I had a 30% off coupon for Kohl's as well as some Kohl's cash, so I bought a Kitchen Aid Mixer.  Not that I bake that much, but it sure makes the best mashed potatoes!

Day 320, Monday, November 16, 2015

I worked on this Christmas layout, even though I spent the entire weekend at the Barn working on my December Daily, I just had to do another layout!

Day 319, Sunday, November 15, 2015

This is what our table looks like this morning.  There are six of us, scrap-booking for the whole weekend.  It was a fantastic weekend and I can't wait until we can all get together again!

Day 318, Saturday, November 14, 2015

I made it to the Barn last night.  We made this sign to reflect how we feel about our visit!  Priceless!

Day 317, Friday, November 13, 2015

Today we celebrated Cindy's birthday at school.  Her birthday is tomorrow, so I brought her present to her and had a hot cocoa bar and chex mix to share with our staff.  Happy Birthday to my BFF! 

Day 316, Thursday, November 12, 2015

I made chex mix to take to school for Cindy's birthday and more to take to the Barn for the weekend trip!

Day 309, Thursday, November 5, 2015

Stacie, Cindy and I went to the benefit, Totes for Ta Ta's.  Tiffany invited us to go after she had gone to the first event.  We had a great time, bidding on the purses and totes to benefit breast cancer.

Day 308, Wednesday, November 4, 2015

Mary Beth, a friend of mine, posted on facebook the other day about her gas gauge.  Her husband was concerned because she always lets her gas gauge go as low as she can.  I do the same thing, except in the really cold winter.  I hate to pump gas.  I can do it, I just don't like to!

Day 307, Tuesday, November 3, 2015

Coco and I have been enjoying our walks in the afternoon.  The trees are so beautiful!

Day 306, Monday, November 2, 2015

If you look really close at the photo on the left side of the sign, that little puppy was Coco when he was only 10 weeks old.  He is the groom dog of the month, so they put his profile picture on the sign.  He was only 3 pounds and 6 ounces in this picture.

Day 298, Sunday, October 25, 2015

Jim picked the remainder of the tomatoes from our two plants that Nate planted in May.  There were still about 50 or so green tomatoes on both plants, but it will be too cold for the plants to survive this week.

Day 297, Saturday, October 24, 2015

Happy Birthday to my parents!  My mom's bday is today and my dad's was on Wednesday.  We went to Kouri';s to eat dinner and took a cake to Morton Terrace to share with the residents who were really excited about cake!

This is not a very good picture in oh, so many ways!  Jim just put up the Cubs flag.  They won the series and are going on to play the next round.

Day 285, Monday, October 12, 2015

Today is Columbus Day.  I didn't have to work, so I spent the day working on my scrapbook pages and went to see my mom at Morton Terrace.  I had to get my haircut at 4 p.m.  I stopped in the park to take this picture of the ducks on the lagoon.

John is having chemo today.  We hope it will be his last treatment before he gets a donor stem cell transplant.

Day 280, Wednesday, October 7, 2015

This black cat was sitting outside of Jennifer's window on the ledge.  She looked up and their it was!  Shortly after, Rachel called from her classroom and this cat had run inside while she was taking the students to the bus.  We called animal control to come and get it, so it would hopefully find his way home.  I later posted on facebook and the owner found him from my post and many shares.

Day 279, Tuesday, October 6, 2015

I have been working on my scrapbook pages.  I have been getting through 2007.  I finally did a page for John and Stacie's wedding.  Actually, their wedding pictures have been in a photo album since the day I brought them home from the store, but I haven't "scrapped" any until today!

Day 278, Monday, October 5, 2015

John and Stacie always make their trip to Target interesting!
