Yesterday I went to get my Wall Street Journal at my front door and I found a dead mouse. Not just a dead mouse but a murdered one.

So I did what any normal person would do with a crime scene. I took photos and looked for any evidence left behind from the person/animal. If you have any tips to catch the person/animal that did this please let me know.

Below are the crime scene photos...

silent night

Oh my gosh I just went outside (8:03 pm sunday night) and not a creature was stirring not even a mouse. I have never heard the city that quiet. No planes, no cars, no people no nothing. I just stood out there and soaked it up. That is one of my favorite things, big cities and them being quiet. It doesn't happen often but when it does I love it.

If you are ever in Venice that is the best early morning you have the whole city to yourself, it is almost freaky how quiet it is.

Everyone must be watching the vikings game.

Wishing Tree...

When I walk the girls I have walked by these trees a couple times and always think I need to take photos to share with you all. The tree is full of wish that people have wrote down on a piece of paper then hang it on the tree.

The two trees all full of wishes

They are all brightly colored wishes

"I wish for my mother to be healthy and happy" Ditto for me too.

"I wish for Brian & Abbie would move here"

I ditto this wish too

I hope this wish comes true for them...I love visiting with my friends

Could not have written better myself...

Sleep stealers

Did anyone watch the CBS morning show today talking about not getting enough sleep? Well here is one of my reasons. Now they started needing to go out side at 2:30 am. Yes I know how to fix this problem but I like them in my bed!

wake up

This morning I turned over to find Foxy half way under the covers with laying on her side and her head on the pillow looking at me. She has totally taken over the half of the bed and Ana sleep at the bottom.

She was so cute I wish I had my camera to capture the moment. They also stayed in bed till 8:00.

A Lobster

My little girl is all ready for halloween. This is the costume I got her last year but we didn't do halloween last year.

So I have made it in Minnesota for a year. It has really felt a lot longer than that. I'm so thank for for this weather last year when I moved here it was cold, wet and snowed.

Foxy is also happy about this weather - however I don't think it is going to last till March.

Friday night

Friday night I went to First Ave. to see 5 bands for a benefit. Some of the bands reunited just for the concerts...like Semisonic/Trip Shakespeare. Joe and I went to Semisonic when ever we could and of course Dan Wilson. I have lots of stories about then but for now I will just share this video from the concert. The sound sucks cause as usual I'm up front and by the speaker and I think that was just too much for my flip camera to handle. This song was/is on of my favorites and can still imagine Joe singing it to me.
