New bedroom furniture

Thanks to our awesome realtor Katy we scored a king bedroom suite set for $300. Including mattress and box springs. And it's exactly what I wanted. This is a night picture because it tools hours to move it. It's heavy!

Chislic and boos

Today we started the neighborhood booing since we were last to be boo'd last year. London did one all by himself
This afternoon we sat back and watched some football and ate chislic. The kids went crazy for it! Doesn't look good but it is. It's a South Dakota thing. We cut up deer meat an fry it up and dump garlic salt on it. Yum!

Doesn't look like much but almost nightly the whole street has all the kids out and playing together. I can send Jo out even and the big kids take care of the little ones. Ages 2-17!

I didn't get many pictures because it's a little insane trying to keep up with kids with unlimited cards at an arcade! But I got a picture of proud London who won the second best prize! A blu ray!

Kiwi crate

Kiwi crates are a monthly subscription of basically arts/crafts pre arranged for us. It's a no rained since everything you need is in the box! This month was modern art. My kids personality shows big time in their art. London being my non-abstract kid wanted his work perfectly symmetrical.
Then there is Jo. She is more my "can't keep me in line and I will not be contained"
