Family time

We had a relaxing weekend with crisp Fall air, a few leaves on the ground and an empty house. The girls accepted Alicia’s invitation to attend a play in Seattle. Foof and B took them there and back while I spent time at home with the two boys. It was great fun!

Saturday at our house

I spent the morning finishing up outdoor work in anticipation of winter. Saleeha popped over in the afternoon, took me to get groceries, a coffee and later took us all out for dinner. The boys sat across from us, laughing and exchanging insults but actually appeared to have a great time together.

 

Meanwhile the kids in Seattle ate donuts, went to a pumpkin patch and finally arrived at the play that evening! You can see from the photos below that some people made it through the corn maze before others!

Sunday morning arrived, Yusuf and Alicia took everyone to brunch and then the kids started on the trip back.

Sunday at our house we cooked and I had a new helper in the kitchen, my youngest.

We made big turkey meatballs, Marinara sauce and put that all together into delicious meatball subs.

We also made rice and Apricot chicken

The kids got home, we ate and then listened to the fun they had with big brother and sister-in-law.

I had to finish my post with this picture of Clementine! It appears she is all ready for Halloween!

    The family unit back in fashion.. Something our nation has been lacking..
    This post is why family is most important for happiness and well being..
    In these photos it shows that you are passing this on to your kids..
    I don’t think there is a greater legacy to achieve.. You are an amazing cook and writer but you are an even better Mom..
    💛
    Looking forward to more family week and weekend posts..
    I’m going to click that apricot chicken link, it looks so good !

    • Thanks so much dear Pan! Sometimes it is hard to keep the family unit strong and together but I agree it is so important. We have struggled through the years but so glad we are all still together and trying our best no matter what comes our way! xoxoxo

        With all your history thru the years, hard has never stopped you.. It seems to spur you on to achieve past survival mode towards the goal of what family and living means to you and for your children.. Your faith and strong spirit makes you special and unique..
