I have to admit, this is not the first time, in fact...when the new baby comes in May of 2009...I will be Great Aunt for the 20th time.
Kaija and Mike are expecting a baby in May. They have Charli and Milli who will be big sisters to the new babe.

The following are not my photos, but I am hopeful to take a few as the birds get used to me.

I'm excited about Monday night football this week, it is the Broncos! First time to see them since the move. We usually only see the Green & Gold boys out of Green Bay or those nasty Vikings from Minnesota.

Fall has really come to Rice Lake, the high is barely 60 and the lows are in the 3o's now. But, there are a couple of trees in my yard which are still showing some pretty nice color.
Now, if anyone needs any free leaves, just let me know. I can't even imagine how big the pile will be once I start raking.

Just 22 more days of weeding through all the campaign information that will be coming our way and then we all have a responsibility to get out and VOTE.
We are a nonpartisan, nonprofit "consumer advocate" for voters that aims to reduce the level of deception and confusion in U.S. politics. We monitor the factual accuracy of what is said by major U.S. political players in the form of TV ads, debates, speeches, interviews and news releases. Our goal is to apply the best practices of both journalism and scholarship, and to increase public knowledge and understanding.
The Annenberg Political Fact Check is a project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania. The APPC was established by publisher and philanthropist Walter Annenberg in 1994 to create a community of scholars within the University of Pennsylvania that would address public policy issues at the local, state and federal levels.
The APPC accepts NO funding from business corporations, labor unions, political parties, lobbying organizations or individuals. It is funded primarily by the Annenberg Foundation.

Filled the bird feeders yesterday. No business yet, guess the word has not spread that there is free food at Johansens! This maple tree turned the prettiest color of yellow. This is the view out my kitchen window these days.
I got my temporary Wisconsin driver's license today too. Tried yesterday, but didn't have the right documents. I needed a power bill and either an original birth certificate or a valid passport. I was pretty happy that I was able to find both of those in all this moving chaos. I still have not organized the office. Also got plates for the car. Had to show the Colorado title for that one, again, after some digging, I was able to produce that as well. Tomorrow I will attempt to register to vote. Hopefully that goes well. I live in Stanely Township and the townhall is only open Wednesday evening and Thursday morning this week, and only for voter registration.

From Waumandee, I headed for Durand to spend the night with Kris and Lora and 6 week old great nephew Anders Dakota. He's a little cutie.
Anders made his Daddy Kris feel real tired, but even while napping, Kris kept the food coming!I left Durand and stopped in Spring Valley to see Glenn & Kathy and scam a free lunch of homemade chicken soup & homemade beer bread. Yum.
While I was in Spring Valley I got treated to Alyxis's recent loss of another bottom tooth. She's a Jack O' Lantern look alike now! Did you know the tooth fairy pays in $10 increments these days?
The leaves on the way there were so pretty, just have to post a few more pictures here. This barn looks to have been painted by a Packer Fan at some stage of it's lifetime.
Go Badgers! Go Packers! Go Broncos!
