Hot Tea, Chicken & Rice, and Rest

If those all sound like a remedy for're right. I am sick. I have had this "thing" for two weeks now. Can't seem to shake it. The doctor might be calling in more meds for me tomorrow...depends. So while I have been hanging out at home and trying to REST (something that I don't do well) my mom has been visiting. She came into town to decorate the restaurant and make some decorations for folks on our town holiday house tour. It was a very nice visit and we had fun. She helped bring out the Christmas decorations at our house. Since I didn't feel like taking a photo and downloading it....I snapped this with the Photo Booth to give you a sneak peek.

Happy Anniversary

"I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today, four years ago I married the man I dreamed about marrying for a long time. I hope he'll have me for many more.

I love you more than...anything.

The camping trip is the kidnappers have given Batman back to the original hopes he will reunite him with Robin. It was lots of fun...and I think the furry kidnapper liked it the best. Thanks, Batman for visiting. I hope you learned lots of new and creative ways to beautify the Bat Cave.

Batman: The King of Domesticity

As the hostage situation did the softer side of Batman shine.

He loved taking spins on the spice carousel.

Batman also read up on what bulbs to plant now would look best at Chez Hostage House for the spring.

He also helped with changing the sheets and doing laundry...

Change of plans...

Since the close call with the kidnappers, Batman decided he better make the most of his stay. So, he started to enjoy being held hostage by them...partaking in all of the activities.

Decorating the mantle for Thanksgiving

(he means...knew...but he was soo excited about feeling like a float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, he didn't know how to talk.)

Are things getting out of hand?

Bad kidnapper, bad!

All tied up

After the attempted escape...the kidnappers decided to keep Batman with them at all times...

While Robin is in the great outdoors....

With lots of other men...bonding and building fires...Batman has been hostage at an undisclosed location. When his kidnappers are at work or napping...he is stuck in a jack-o-lantern. Until he tried to escape...then......

Dun dun dun dunnnnnnnnnnnnnn

Stay tuned for what will happen next....

The Dynamic Duo SPLIT UP!

There seems to have been a problem in Jeffrey's plan to kidnap Batman and Robin from Parra Grafs. Robin is enjoying his time on the Appalachian Trail...Batman is not. Batman's kidnappers have other plans for him...

Happy Halloween

I know it is a few days late...
The elementary school behind our house has a neat tradition. They have a halloween parade around town on Halloween. It's fun to see the children dressed up and everyone cheering them on. Here are some of my favorites from the parade.
