David and I went to Niagara Falls, Canada for our 2 year anniversary trip. We had a wonderful time. The weather was very mild for that time of the year. We stayed 4 nights and 5 days. The first two days were beautiful with the highs in the 50s, but the last couple of days it was much colder and rainy. So, we did lots of sightseeing the first part of the trip and spent lots of time in the casino the second part of the trip. I won $500.00 in the dollar slots. But, trust me we needed that since everything was so expensive. We could not even eat at Burger King for under $20.00. The restaurants did not give refills on soda, just water. I can tell you that if I lived in Canada, I would get my recommended amount of drinking water. We also went to an IMAX movie that told about the "daredevils" that have attempted to survive the drop from the falls. It was very interesting!!! Our hotel room had a view overlooking the falls. So, David and I loved leaving the window cracked at bedtime to hear the falls.

I can't believe that Lacey is already two. My oh my how time flies!!! David and I were out-of-town for her birthday celebrating our anniversary, so we did a low key birthday party when we returned. We gave Lacey and Katie each a small vanilla cupcake. Let's just say Katie is a cupcake lover. She put the whole thing in her mouth at once and swallowed with one gulp. Lacey took her time just eating as slow as ever. I think Katie has learned to eat everything so fast, so Lacey will not take it from her. Needless to say Lacey was very tired after the party.
I know I am way behind on blogging. I am going to do my best to get everything caught up by the weekend. David and I attended Susan and Greg's wedding on November 4th. It was one of the prettiest weddings and receptions that I have ever attended. David and I would like to wish them the best of luck in the future and many, many happy years together.

David and I had a very unexpected trip to Florida to visit his family. It was very warm and beautiful there. David had a work convention to go to, but everyting was not mandatory, so we decided to escape and visit family. We went to visit Ken (David's dad), Joyce (David's step-mom) and Tom (David's grandpa) in Vero Beach on Monday. We had a great time!! We spent the morning catching up and visiting. We went to lunch at Waldo's right on the beach!! We had some wonderful Bloody Mary's and then moved on to Margarita's. We ordered lots of appetizers and just enjoyed the company of each other. We then just spent the rest of the afternoon and evening relaxing and then we headed back to our hotel in Orlando.
Then on Tuesday we went to visit Lesley (David's mom) and Kevin (David's brother) in Largo. David's mom took us for a wonderful picnic and on a nature trail. We saw many different types of birds. We also saw two baby crocs and about a six-foot croc. It was such a fun afternoon!!! After that David and Kevin went and played 9-holes of golf, while Lesley and I went back to her house to visit and just relax. That evening we had a wonderful salmon dinner with the best squash casserole, ever. For the past six month, Lesley has been lots of work in her house. I will put up some pics of the rooms that are completed. It looks great!!!
We had a great time with all of you and we can't wait to see everyone at Christmas!!!!
I know I am a little behind in my posts. But, David and I went to the State Fair a couple of weeks ago. We had a great time. We rode a couple of rides, watched a concert, ate lots of junk food and went through the cattle barn. Everyone knows that I am a "country girl at heart"
