Molly started the remodel of mom's bathroom, I went up and assisted.  

The floor was ripped up, and new subflooring was required near the toilet.

See that space back to the far left?  That's where the toilet goes.

After the we did the subflooring, 

We put the new flooring in around the toilet hole, and then put the toilet back.  

It was quite a feat for the 3 of us.

Three women in a small space trying to balance a toilet, hold the ring in it, and fit it over the hole with the bolts sticking up.  We managed it, but it wasn't easy.  Molly was in the bathtub, I was lying on the floor, and mom was standing in the doorway helping to guide it.  We lost one bolt down the hole on the first try.  I'm sure if we would have filmed it, it would have been comical.

We took the girls out to the movies and then to the waffle house.  The order of the pictures is backwards.  

Since I'm writing this so far after the fact, I don't remember the name of the movie!

When it was over, we were the only people in the theater, so we went down to the stage in front of the screen to dance around.  

October also means opening day at Wishbone Farm!  We took the girls to get pumpkins and enjoy the festivities and animals.

Both of the girls kissed the pigs! (or just pretended to)

Attempting a witch's brew

Hangin' with the ghosts and spiders

Getting some candy from the monster

Chillin' at the fire with the monsters

And posing as scarecrows.

Climbing up the bales of hay,

Posing near the skeleton dog

Being pulled around with the pumpkins

Swinging on the horse swing

A great visit to Wishbone Farm!  

After we dropped Lily off at home, we went to Frisch's and Rylee was so hungry, she tried to eat the Big Boy Sandwich!  

We got her inside for real food, stat.

Back to Mom's to install the sink, we had a few plumbing issues.

One of the neighbors stopped by and helped out with it, so we were good to go in the bathroom.

Carter visited with us on a Friday night

along with his Momma

The girls got seeds out of the fallen sunflowers.

And played on the fallen trees and stumps

Back to Mom's to do the kitchen floor.

Aaand, done.

I stole this one from Conor's posts on some platform, not sure which.  He and 2 of his friends being silly.  

October's Universal Yums was from.... (drum roll, please)


We tried all the snacks, of course, but it wasn't one of our favorite Yums.  Equally good and weird to us.  

The girls helped me grate carrots for Mimi's birthday Carrot Cake.  

They also helped her open gifts

Then played memory

We also celebrated Austin's birthday

With a yummy Heath Toffee Coffee Ice Cream Cake.  Yum.

For Halloween, Lily dressed as Glenda, the good witch while Anna was Dorothy. 

One late Friday, we went to the Cracker Barrel for dinner

Lily crashed on the chair with Cleo sleeping above her.

And finally, a friend asked me to do a cake for his grand son - based on Five Night's at Freddie's, Nightmare version.  I think it turned out pretty good.
