brews

Today we celebrated Halloween early, with Friends, Family, and a lot of kids. It was what will likely be our first annual Halloween bash. We had 29 kids in all and a bunch of parents, I never counted the adults. It was a long day and I want to do is sleep, but first I have to post my picture of the day. So here is our drinks table with its Zombie Tonic and Spider Cider

POD: Violet at the Pumpkin Patch

PumpkinPatch-01Framed

Today Violet’s class headed out for a field trip to the Pumpkin patch. She loved it, but what made the day for our little Violet was that her Mommy was one of the parents who went along. I like that she took along our good camera and took pictures. I chose one this one of smiling Violet to use as today’s picture of the day.

VioletAndNateRace

Tonight was another party planning night, for Melissa and gang. So Nate came to visit again. Tonight the kids all played outside for a while before dinner. I captured today’s picture of Violet and Nate racing while they played. I think Violet might have had a bit of an edge in that race. Still the 2 of them had a great time playing together.

POD: Final Thanksgiving at Nanas

ThanksGiving
Today we headed to Nana and Papa’s for the Thanksgiving dinner.It was a great evening, but also a little sad to say good-bye to the house. Before dinner we gave each said something about the house that we were thankful for, listening to the kids say what they were thankful for was sweet.

Today we were up before 6 to get to the rink in time for Jacob to be goalie, for the first and hopefully last time this season. He played hard, and made some shots, but unfortunately for every shot he stopped another went in. Still he seemed to have a good time.
