Thanksgiving


Grandmas, toys, food, and washing machines. 'Nuff said.

We wrestled Nate into this 1970s sweater. He seemed mortified by our attempt to recreate the photo of Mark at the same age. I am sure it will come up in therapy in a decade or so.


We are so very grateful for all the blessings in our lives.

Weekend in Pennsylvania


This weekend, we drove to Pennsylvania to see Ally, Mike, and "Baby George," who is not a baby any more. Nate and George were very busy, and their parents were as lazy as we could get away with. Nate loved seeing and feeding the critters,


hiking to, over, and under the covered bridge,


and visiting the dairy farm of one of Ally's veterinary clients and neighbors:


where he got to see cows being milked and taste extremely fresh milk.

We also enjoyed fossil hunting, lots of yummy comfort food, and all of George's toys. What a fun weekend!

Halloween





I offered Nate any costume choice, but he wanted to wear the knight costume he had worn to Alex's birthday party. Since he now likes the helmet and fits the boots, why not? He became a pro at trick-or-treating this year, although he couldn't understand why we didn't go inside to see our neighbors (and their dogs.) When we returned, he showed his candy haul to Goodman and went right for the lollipop.


My, how those bones have grown!
