Lets Sew!!

On Friday we went to Jo-Ann fabric and came home with lots
of fleece to make pj's for everybody.
Saturday morning Braden woke up at 7:30 and went
down to wake Gramma up and asked her if she was ready
to start sewing. Well here they all are ready to go.

Can you believe this, we even got the guys involved!

Braden hard at work!
(The tongue really helps.)

Breanna made a scarf for luci lou.

Yes I know this is pretty funny, but here I am making
Braden's football Pajama pants.
Wow, once you get going its pretty fun!
It took all day, but we all have new cozy fleece pajama pants.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Wednesday afternoon we set up the barn, trying our best to make it
cozy for our day together on Thursday.
Wed. was our turn to bring supper to Grammy & Grampy's.
A privilege to share in some special moments.
(Grampa John flew back in today as well - yeah!)

The whole crew, well almost, 7 little kids at there own table-
(I forgot to put that picture in. oops!), 2 in high chairs & a little one in a swing.
39 of us together this year.

The other end.

A delicious meal - we'll let that settle in
with some crokinole and then.......

we'll walk over to the dome for a serious game of football.

Some played a bit of soccer,

and some sat on the side lines to chear.
(we all had a great time - Thank you Rick.)

The injured - OUCH!!

Braden on a crazy little bike.

Kev had to try it out to.

Back to the barn for supper. Just what we needed - more food!
The kids had fun with play dough.......

and the adults had fun with some more crokionole.

Then the kids moved to the floor to play with the marker boards.

Some stayed later to play a few card games: Pit (a little loud,

but lots of fun!) & then Apples to Apples. We had a blast!

I think it was 11:30 or after when we all left.

A really great day, I wish I had of taken more pictures to capture

everybody thru out the day, but just having to much

fun to stop & snap some shots.

First Snow!!!!!!!

Wow, were the kids excited about this!

Oops, probably time to put the patio furniture away.
(I was not ready for this.)

Here comes Braden down the hill in his tube, & Luci
chasing after him. Luci's first time in the snow - she loves
it just as much as the kids do!

Great ride Bre.

Here she is, I'm standing in the door way calling her in
but she wants to stay out and play some more.
(check out the snow ball hanging from her name tag.)

Next up a snow man. I thought for sure we would have
no snow left after Mr. Buddy was built, but we still
had enough for little more sledding.

Here he is all done, introducing Mr. Buddy!
That was the name that Braden gave him.
The hat that Buddy is wearing is one that there
great grammy made for them. Pretty cute.

snap shots

Hanging out with Gramma by the fire - Breanna &
Luci got a little sleepy..... sooooo cozy!

Silly kids.

Wow! Bre, nice finger nails.

Breanna & Luci - good buddies.


Darryl, Linn & Kaylise joined us for dinner sat. evening.
I had to put these pictures up because Kaylise was
hamming it up - every time I was going to take a
picture she would do a great big grin & giggle.
It was pretty funny!
The guys decided that it looked like the kids were having
to much fun coloring so they joined in!
Darryl taught Breanna a little drawing trick -
she thinks that's pretty cool.


Last Tuesday we enjoyed our monthly night out for
November at Jananne's house. We had a wonderful evening!
*Thank you Jananne.*
We brought Grampa to the airport today the kids
were not to happy about that, but Gramma decided to
stay a bit longer so that made them pretty excited!

The kids had no school on Monday so after gospel mtg.
Sunday afternoon they asked Bella to come over for a sleepover.
Here they are the princess, the cowboy, & the horse.

A wild ride!


Watch out for this crazy cowgirl!

They all got on this horse for a wild ride.
(lots of giggles!)

The dancers!
The girls put on quite the show for all of us.
We each had to buy a ticket to get into the show.

The dancers in some pretty fancy moves!

They spent the day Monday putting on one dance show

after another, each show they had to get into a new outfit.

It was pretty cute.

Cuddles with Grampa!

A woodsy kind of Saturday.

The kids had fun making trails thru the woods.

Lovin it!

Grampa being goofy at the table with cheese wax.

Bre joined in with the fun.

Hair Salon in the basement - Breanna hard at work.

Braden was up next to give grampa a new style - quite the wave!

Breanna created this silly looking apple with her toothles grin.

Gramma, & myself took the kids on a treasure hunt
thru the woods Sunday afternoon. We found lots of neat
things, even some sort of animal bedding made under a pine tree.
Walking the plank.
