My Aunts

My Aunts rock! They showed up this morning at 8:30 and just left a few minutes ago. We crammed a lot of crazy fun into one day. Heather and I met them for breakfast at a little diner in town and enjoyed some delicious biscuits and gravy! Goodbye diet today! Then we headed out to the cemetary to visit mom. They brought some sunflower stuff to decorate with and we got it all prettied up.

The wind was crazy today! My Aunt Shirley weighs about 12 pounds and I really thought she might blow away. We were so wind blown after going to the cemetary but we braved the pumpkin patch. It was a blast even though dust was flying everywhere most of the time we were there.

We went through the corn maze and I was really beginning to think that Heather, Donna, and Betty were lost in there. It took them a good 35 minutes to make it out! But while they were in the maze they ran into four little boys that Heather used to babysit for. It was so nice to see their family and share some fall fun with them.

My aunts even tried out the sling shots at the patch. You can fire gourds out of the sling shots and they fly pretty dang far. We had a nice gourd firing contest among us. Heather ended up breaking the sling and landing on the ground in the process of trying to beat us. But I think Aunt Adair ended up winning.

After all that fun I didn't think we could do much more. But we ended up going to the Oktoberfest where I won some awesome decorations. I got a couple adorable outside benches that I LOVE! I've been wanting some for awhile so it worked out great. Then we came home and played some Mexican Train dominos, ate more food we didn't need, and now they are on their way home.

Heather and I have now cleaned up the house, let Lena out of puppy prison and are thinking out heading to bed. Those crazy gals wore us out!!!!

I'm just checking in with this week's weight lost. It's a disappointing 1/2 pound loss, but at least it's down. Can't wait for the show tonight! :) And I can't wait until I start looking like my avatar pic again...sigh.

Arg,.... My weight loss this week was -.2 not even a half pound. But it's ok. Maybe next week I'll lose at least 2 pounds. Hope you're well!
