Karen's Birthday

We visited Jean & Karen on Wednesday to celebrate Grandma Karen's birthday. She made an excellent chicken/white bean chili and all sorts of sides to go with it - great food as always!! We stayed and let all the girls play for the evening. They all get so excited together; it's so much fun to watch and join in with!!

TJ's Cross Country Meet

Our karate student, TJ, had a cross country meet at Kimberly HS last weekend. Jen and I went with his mom, Kandi, to cheer him on. Here is a link to some pictures posted on our karate blog:

Cottage Visit

We were up at the cottage last weekend. The grandmas babysat Rae & Joeli so Jen and I could go out to dinner for our anniversary. We went to The Woods - EXCELLENT food, highly recommended!! Aaron was up with his girls, Serenity and Adriana, visiting Jean and Karen also. Rae & Jo were so excited to play with them!! On Sunday we got a start to the winterizing of our cottage - we hooked up the inside winter pump. We'll be back up next weekend for a couple of days and will probably disconnect and drain the main water system.

Gratitude - I am grateful to have a family that plays and laughs, and inspires me to do the same.

First Frost

Last Thursday I woke up on our anniversary to a beautifully frost-covered back yard. I had just mowed the lawn the day before and frost highlighted the circle pattern.

Gratitude - I am grateful for the awesome beauty nature provides.
