letterboxing ,Miss Patty Cake and night out together

It seems like our life has been in such a state of NOT NORMAL for so long. We have been in the transition stage for close to 2 years. We just don't have time or money these days for fun things. For all too true our life has been overshadowed with moving and adjusting.




But for this night, it was just for fun. The girls and I went to go see Miss Patty Cake (a children's performer). Chuck has connected with a few different people at his new job/town and when we found out they were coming here to put on a concert, we wanted to go and see the show. It was really cute (a little young for my girls but we all enjoyed it) and very well done. I was quite impressed. And it was a treat to meet daddy's new friends and feel like an insider.










Before we even got there we found a letterbox in a nearby park. The weather here is chilly and enjoyable. After finding our treasure, this tree was a huge hit for climbing.














When all was done, we had to swing by and sign another counter offer on the house (yep, we were low balled again). We are praying specifically that we get a fair offer and one that we can accept.

To top the night, we had dinner out at Arby's. We hardly ever eat out so this is always a treat.


Tally enjoyed the curly fries and Tristen "drank" her dinner.
It was a pretty NORMAL night, accept for not having Daddy here. He comes home on Wednesday, just in time for Thanksgiving.

What a fun time out! Praying the "buyers" will be willing to budge on their offer! So great to be close to you again!

What a fun day! Praying for safe travels for Chuck and for buyers with lots of money to spare so they can pay what you want them to pay! (Is is ok to pray that they play the lottery and win BIG??)

Sounds like a lot of fun! We letterbox too and have done it for about 2 years! Our family loves it! The last vacation we took we letterboxed all the way down I85. It was fun to stop and search at rest stops:)

Yes, I got the Sercy yesterday! Thank you! Everything was beautiful. I will post this week and try to carry on the "gift giving" Thanks again!

Tristen always fills up on a drink (even if it is only water) and doesn't eat much food.

I used to love our Miss Patty Cake video when my oldest were little.

Sounds like fun. The "not normal" is hard.... I wish you a good offer SOON.

I love Miss Patty Cake! We show her videos to out 2 and 3 year old Sun. School class. We don't show the videos all the time, just when it seems like a good fit. She is so cute and she captures the attention of the kids so well. How lucky you were to meet her.
