I am going to thoroughly enjoying every second of this day for two reasons. Number one, because it is FINALLY raining here in Minnesota! I feel a pang of guilt, as I know our friends in Colorado are wishing the rain would stop. Unfortunately here we are in a severe draught. The last time we got any measurable rain was about 6 weeks ago and that was about a quarter of an inch. All of the crops around here are brown and crispy, so sad....Number two reason is that I have enjoyed Miss Alayna all day to myself! Brad and Rachel are at a Gopher football game and Emma is at a friends house.
We started off the morning going to our favorite store, Crafts Direct! After getting a strawberry/banana smoothie, we bought some fall decor and I let Alayna pick out a couple crafts to make. She choose a couple blank canvas' that she is busily painting as I type. For lunch we decided to make our own mini pizzas. She got to make hers, homemade pizza sauce, turkey pepperoni and cheese. I used pizza sauce, fresh basil and fresh mozzarella.
I had ready made pizza crust on hand so we used those. They were scrumptious, and oh so easy! Next on the agenda is a nap...I mean movie...
