A November Monday......

comes right after a November Sunday.....

Amber and Mike returned home in time for US to get 'home' (back to our camper) where we watched a couple of football games! Texas has TWO NFL teams and they played back to back! It was so nice outside we turned the TV at an angle and BANG! 

We were watching football 'Red Neck' style!!

I used the daylight to paint as I could see the TV from my chair.
BOTH Texas teams won!!!
Win! WIN!!

I made some good progress on my Santas!
One is to keep and one is to give.

Louis Dean gave the day a 'Thumbs UP!'

This Monday morning started with a breakfast of toast and the rest of Louis Dean's delicious gravy -
from the chicken fried steak he made Saturday.
This is the 'His' and 'Hers' version!

I headed back to Quadville to help with the 11:00 feeding. Today was sweet potatoes!
Watch for Amber to do a blog post about it! She got pics as well as video!
I went back to get LD since Amber had a doctor appointment and you know there is strength in numbers!

Monday/Wednesday/Friday are Bath Days in Quadville!
I decided to use the super cute bath robes today.
Harrison loved his bath and by the time I got the robe ON him and carried him to the changing table -
he was totally DRY!

Kailey Love was next........sweet baby girl!

Logan Girl now loves her baths!
She gets a shampoo and a body wash every single time!
Of course they ALL do!

I told Trystan I saved the BEST for LAST!

We stayed til after the 5:00 feeding and left about 6:00 when Amber and Mike got home.
I walked Lucy and started our dinner of pasta and vodka sauce with garlic bread.
Louis Dean and I have enjoyed a quiet evening. 
I walked on the treadmill this morning and MEANT to walk again tonight - but figured walking Lucy would count! A little TV, a little reading, a little bit of a journal entry and we are ready for bed.
I don't know how it happens - we start every day with just enough energy to make it through - and not one ounce left over!! It is amazing how we always have JUST ENOUGH!

Your painting is unbelievable, and your breakfast of gravy and toast is one of our favorites, we go all out and treat ourselves some mornings and use biscuits, canned of course;)
I love the look Logan is giving as you take her picture, they are sooo cute, and those robes are darling.
Your strength I believe comes from days filled with love and happiness:)

Such sweet pics of the babies in their robes. We watched Texas play AL and were rooting for Texas to win. What an amazing game! They beat the best college team out there! (AL is our rival, so we don't like them to win.)

Those paintings are absolutely beautiful, I have no talent whatsoever in the art department, so I do admire those who have.

And those babies....just delicious!!
