So a short synopsis of the time since I blogged:
Seth, my brother, moved to Oklahoma City. Seems like he's having a good time and adjusting well. We're very excited for him.
I moved the living room furniture. I love moving furniture! I probably shouldn't have done it by myself, but I wanted it done before Ben got back. It like it, but it still needs a little tweaking. I bought material to cover pillows for the couch, and redo the antique rocker and the dining room chairs, and I'm very excited about it! I'm going to start on part of that tonight.
Ben got back Sept 6. It's soooo nice to have him home. He's back in school, so he's extra busy, so we haven't done anything really cool, but it's great.
My aunt and uncle came and stayed with us for 3 days last week. They're missionaries, so we don't get to see them very often, so it was nice to visit with them. And my dad had meetings in KC last week, so he was with us all week. That was good, too. My mom didn't come as planned since we thought my sister would have her baby.
Speaking of which, my sister had a little girl, Rebecca, on Saturday night! Very exciting. They went home from the hospital today and are doing very well.
The weather cooled off today! It definitely feels like fall which is great! And just the anticipation of that was enough to make me want to bake on Sunday! So I made this great pumpkin pie cake. Here's the recipe. It was pretty easy and everyone loved it.
And I used the word proclivity in a normal conversation today. Without trying - it just came out. I had to stop the conversation and comment on it, it was so much fun. I love using big words. :)
And I think that pretty much gets you caught up. At least on the short version. Happy Fall!
