Day at the Farm

We had a wonderful day today at the Farm with my little family (Andy, Carter and Roxanne). Roxanne has been living here since April when she got out of a long-term relationship. I've known her since I was 11 or 12 years old; she is already family to me and we love having her around all the time. Carter walks around the house looking for "Ra, Ra." He climbs up the stairs and barges into her room going through each and every item she has. He loves make-up and beauty products. LOVES THEM. If you give him a make-up bag full of make-up he squeals with excitement and takes the time to investigate and touch each item. Roxanne has a few baskets full of beauty products and he knows exactly where they are. Her door is kept closed most of the time, but when by chance he finds it open, or he weasels his way in, he goes straight for those darn baskets. It's definitely cute but a problem. He is also obsessed with wallets. If my purse is open and low enough for him to reach, he'll pull out my wallet and then dismantle it by taking each credit card, store card, business card, you name it, he'll remove it. The other morning I walked downstairs on my way out to the office and found my wallet completely empty with the contents strewn about our house. Not one single item was still in it. Sigh. But that's my life now and I wouldn't have it any other way. :)

K, off topic now. About the farm....We went to a local farm where you can pick your own fruits and veggies and pet animals, ride a mini train and a tractor, and spend a nice quiet day with your family. Carter and I had been once before with my parents, but today I brought Andy and Roxanne. It was a beautiful day out and we got some beautiful pictures. I thought we might be able to get a pretty picture for our Holiday Card but I think we'll wait and come back when it's nicely decorated for Christmas. We still have time. After, we went to my parent's where I cooked up some crispy chicken with a cream cheese chive sauce, steak, rice, and green beans. It was a nice little family dinner to top off our nice little family day.

As always, here are the pretty pictures to close my blog with. Enjoy! Happy Saturday Night all!
