Living and Loving Life!

Hello everybody!  Time has flown by again and it is time for me to update the happenings of the Eagle family.  Mama Jules is doing fantastic and we are so thankful.  It has been about 9 months now since her last bout with Cellulitis.  The hospital is becoming a distant memory!  Yay!

Our entry brings us all the way back to September.  September is a crazy birthday month for us.  I feel like I was celebrating every weekend!!  This includes my own birthday!  Woot Woot!  My nephew Julian’s bday is a couple of days before me…so we headed over to Brooklyn Center as a family to have a little pizza party.  Brooklyn Center has the last Rocky Rococo’s in MN and it has always been a family favorite.  Mmmmmm……Pizza……..

Family pic. This was after 5 attempts. Getting a bunch of guys to smile naturally at the camera is harder than I thought!

Jenna and the birthday boy

I just LOVE my nephews!  They are such wonderful boys!!

So, that weekend I went out for a little birthday celebration for myself with some besties.  We got a hotel room and headed over the Nye’s in NE Minneapolis for a night on the town!  I felt very loved this birthday and always appreciate the love from my family and friends.  It always makes getting older a little easier!

Thanks girls for a fun night!

A couple of days later our friend Amy took me out to Pairings for a birthday lunch!  Pairings has become a favorite around here!  Thank you Amy!

Group pic to prove just how much fun we are having! haha

My mom and I got our flu shots from my Brother in Law Ross.  He makes sure we always get the preservative free! He probably thinks I am crazy for documenting the moment…but we had fun!



Next up…..Grandpa Eagle came to town for a weekend visit.  He is 95 years old and still makes the 10 hour drive from the U.P. to come and see us.  We always love having him.  He is such a cutie!

A couple of weekends ago Jenna headed to Hollywood to visit a college friend that she danced with.  She had a great time and appreciated a girlie weekend away!

Next up: Halloween.  My mom and I went over to my Grandpa’s assisted living home for their Halloween Happy Hour.  I knew that they would be dressing up…so we picked up a witch headband for my gramps.  He was reluctant at first, but eventually embraced it.  The party was fun & we got to listen to a polka band.  My grandpa LOVES music, so he was in heaven.  It is fun to see the older people singing to their favorite songs.  I think my mom and I fit in pretty well over there!

Gramps asked me to take a bonus picture of him outside

I managed to make it to a Halloween party of my own.  So fun!

Hitting the bars in Owatonna!

Jenna and Ross dressed Jack up as a rufferee.  This picture is too cute not to throw in!

Doesn’t he just steal your heart?

And I think that we will end on that adorable note.  My mom and I are off to meet some friends at Green Mill.  We hope that everybody gets out and votes tomorrow!  My mom and I will be hitting the poles.  If we can… can!  And if you live in Minnesota:

Xoxo, Kelly
