Do you think my tractor's sexy?

Dave and I bought a little Yanmar to till the garden, cut the grass, and clean out the "back 40." It will replace our lawnmower and hopefully last a long time. Trudy is going to enjoy taking rides on it next spring!

Future Couponer

A friend from church gave Trudy her granddaughters' shopping cart to take home with her. She had fun pushing it around the fellowship room in the hat and purse that her aunt Amie made for her. It will be nice when she can help me coupon since I find it such a chore.

Trudy just graduated from a sleep sack to PJs and her first pair are boys'! They were on clearance for $1 at Walmart and I couldn't resist the price or the sentiment written on the front. She doesn't seem to mind since they are comfy-cozy.

It's Easy Being Green

We had a visitor on our windshield this week. He spent a whole day just chilling out and was gone by the next morning.

Steak 'n Shake (and I helped)

Dave has been working a lot lately so we enjoyed a family day today. It wasn't much more than running errands together but we did stop at Steak 'n Shake for a treat
Trudy loves her some french fries!

And I love me some Hershey's Special Dark milkshake.
Dave enjoyed a cookies and cream shake and helped T eat her fries

Mom mom and Pop pop come to town

Dave and Linda stopped by on their way home from their annual northward trek. Like last year, they happened to come through on Mom's birthday so we went out to eat to celebrate.

Trying to steal Mom mom's camera

Trudy enjoyed opening some belated birthday gifts from Mom mom and Pop pop. She loves cards the best!

Isn't this hat adorable? Note the eyelashes. This is a girl frog!

Some winter clothes. I'm ready for it to be cold enough for her to wear these. Never thought I'd say that, but this summer has been naaaasty.

Her cousins in Canada made Trudy a card and Aunt Amie sent an adorable matching hat/purse set that she wore out to eat that night.
Mom made Trudy a crochet bear with matching blanket, changeable outfits and carrying bag.

She had fun exploring the yard with Pop pop and Daddy.

All tuckered out and needing some alone time with Dot the Wubbanub

Thanks for stopping by, Mom and Dad! We had a great time as always.
