Mornings are crazy around here

School mornings in our house are crazy. My alarm clock goes off at 7am & I usually lay there until 7:15. Then get up & get dressed & try to get Tara out of bed. It usually takes a while. I try to have her clothes ready the night before. In the morning, I try to get her to tell me what she wants for breakfast & lunch. I would like to know the night before. Anthony is usually in the bathroom shaving & he leaves before she does, most days. Luckily, we've only missed the bus 1 time. I had to drive her to school. Usually we stand at the bottom of our driveway & the bus stops at our neighbor's house. Today we are having heavy rains, so I drove the car down to the bottom of our driveway & we waited for the bus. I'm always really stressed out in the mornings. After she leaves, I can sit & relax & enjoy my breakfast & the rest of the morning. Do you have crazy mornings with your kids too or do things usually go smoothly?

This pic was taken this morning, rushing out the door. I'm working on getting a new camera soon. This was taken with my crappy Ipod touch.

Mommy & Me Monday

We took a few selfie tonight. Along with JoJo. Someday I'm hoping to get an Ipod touch with flash, so pics don't come out so dark & sometimes. goldish.

I don't think I've ever done 2 New England minutes in a row, but we had a fun/busy Fall weekend around New Hamsphire.

New England Minute~Harvest festival

Every year our town has a Harvest festival. They have a doggie parade (the dogs dress up in costumes. We always get there too late & miss it), a hayride, parade with all the kids dressed up & all the area businesses pass out candy & other items. A local dentist gives out tooth brushes, tooth paste & floss, others give candy of course, pens, pencils & more. I love living in a small town & getting to see our friends that we don't get to see often.

 We did a hayride.

Volunteering at the animal shelter

Yesterday was family day at the animal shelter, so Tara & I went & helped out. It's an animal shelter/farm. We helped out in the kitchen & dried some dishes & then cleaned out a horse stall. Then we walked around & looked at the cats. I really want to end up in the cat rooms. It made me so happy being with them.

Mittens, the cow.

Doodles, a crazy 8 month old kitten that we were playing with.

Mommy & Me Monday

Since Today was Columbus Day, T had off from school. So we volunteered at the animal shelter that I volunteer at. I will post photos tomorrow. After we went to a farm & she got a mini pumpkin & some cider donuts. Our neighbors (her bff) got a puppy today & they named her Stella. We got to go see her tonight for a little while. Fun day.
