POD: Stir Fry for One

DinnerforDaddy
Tonight I came home from work to an empty house, I don’t remember the last time that happened. The kids were off on an adventure with their Nan, and Melissa’s hadn’t returned from her afternoon appointment. So it was just me and Ruby for dinner. Ruby had her usual dog food, but I wanted something different. So I made myself a steak stir fry. I don’t do a lot of cooking, but it’s nice to know that I can more than just BBQ.

POD: Relaxing Ruby

Today we celebrated Halloween early, with Friends, Family, and a lot of kids. It was what will likely be our first annual Halloween bash. We had 29 kids in all and a bunch of parents, I never counted the adults. It was a long day and I want to do is sleep, but first I have to post my picture of the day. So here is our drinks table with its Zombie Tonic and Spider Cider

POD: Violet at the Pumpkin Patch

Today Violet’s class headed out for a field trip to the Pumpkin patch. She loved it, but what made the day for our little Violet was that her Mommy was one of the parents who went along. I like that she took along our good camera and took pictures. I chose one this one of smiling Violet to use as today’s picture of the day.

POD: Quite Evening

Today was a quite evening for our little family. Violet fell asleep early and Jacob (and I) played some Minecraft. I captured this picture before  taking Violet up to her bed for what I hope will be the night.

Tonight we have a picture of some of Melissas party prep efforts. As the days till the party slip away I have to admit I’m looking forward to it. I’m sure it’s going to be great fun.

I captured today’s picture of Jacob while heading home from this evenings swimming class. I tried to get a selfie of the three of us, but it didn’t work. So instead we have this picture of Jacob.

VioletAndNateRace

Tonight was another party planning night, for Melissa and gang. So Nate came to visit again. Tonight the kids all played outside for a while before dinner. I captured today’s picture of Violet and Nate racing while they played. I think Violet might have had a bit of an edge in that race. Still the 2 of them had a great time playing together.

POD: Looking for a costume
