We had a wonderful Thanksgiving day this year. Here are a few photos from the fun-filled 4 day weekend. My sister Natasha, her husband Matt, and son Boyd came up for a visit. So did Jerem’s parents. It’s amazing how close quarters can bring people together. And give them headaches depending on how loud the kids are screaming. We had a meal of Walleye and Porketta, made a trip up to the lake, played a compatibility game…twice…Jerem and I lost….twice. No further comment. Paige enjoyed having an Auntie around and Tasha was patient enough to allow her nails (and fingers) to get bright purple nail polish applied. We can’t wait for our next visitors to arrive. Expecting Adley, Chet and Kim in two weeks. Yay!

A big happy birthday to our 6 year old! I can’t believe that 6 years have gone by already since we started our family. Anson is such a joy to be a parent to. He is typical rough and tumble that you’d expect, but also has a very sweet and gentle side. We love you Anson! We were in the cities for his birthday and Christa was nice enough to invite people over for his birthday. He had lots of fun playing with the Meissner kids and Aiden Kahl. Thanks to all for helping us celebrate his day. We love you Anson!

Cheesy Lentil Bake
Saturday, November 7, 2009
I'll just say it now, I'm not looking forward to winter. Yes, it looks white and clean and beautiful-but you can't feel -20 degrees in a photograph, or see how much time it takes to bundle up and carry kids to the car, or experience the feeling of it being April and still not warm enough to wear flip-flops. So these days I'm relishing the look of still slightly green grass, warm sunshine, and days when kids can go outside without layering on the clothes. I thought I'd put up a couple photos that show the contrast of our life. True, both seasons the kids obviously have fun-I just like the warmth I think. Of course, without cold weather there would be no hockey, and without hockey we'd have a sad little boy. So winter go ahead and come..I'll just retreat to my room when the days get long and cold and get lost in photos from last summer.

The kids made an awesome haul with trick-or-treating this year. I'm officially candied out! Paige was able to re-use a flower girl dress from my brothers wedding and found all her other stuff in her dress up box. Nice cheap costume! Anson was determined to be spiderman but I refused to pay $50 for his costume. So I waited till last minute and got it super cheap. They had their class parties too so they got a couple uses out of thier costumes this year.
