Just a quick Hello...

Wow, what a week!!!!
Last Thursday night because of the ice storm
we lost our power, well I am writing a week later
Thursday morning 11am we just got our power back!
This is going to sound a bit crazy, but I can not wait to
do laundry, vacuum the house, cook with an oven, etc, etc....
Well I have a million things to do so I will hopefully
do a better post when things get caught up - might be a while!

Everything is just about ready - yummy!

Breanna & Ellie

My favorite spot - the very full dessert table!
Off to the Dome for some games.
Breanna and Auntie Heather in a game of kick ball.
The next morning we headed north.
On our way up we stopped in to see Grampy at
the hospital, he had just had heart surgery.

An hour from home we ran into this -
the kids were very excited!!

We arrived at camp and in about 5 minutes
Braden had found all of his winter gear and got
dressed to head out for some sledding.

And he's off!

A ride up the hill from Daddy - that's the best!
It was quite a long ride down and a little jump at
the bottom that Breanna & Braden loved to get air off.

Kyle is in love with helmets!

Jobe & Molly and Calista riding with Kevin.

Andrea & Shilo.

Shilo with Daddy!

Relaxin! Nate & Katie.

Calista, Lilly, & Breanna playing up in the loft.

Crazy man!
Nate was hot after playing games down at Carl &
Sally's camp so he road home like this to cool off - BRRR!

Breanna with the Pratt's dog.

Colby, Breanna, & Braden ready for more sledding.

After going on a trail ride we stopped by Carl &
Sally's bonfire to warm up a bit.

Relaxing after a full day of sledding.
Braden has a bit of hat head going on.

Our last night at camp, my turn to make supper.
Jobe & Mamie and the kids joined us.
Lots of fun!

This is what we came home to on Sunday night.
The snow didn't last very long, but we do still have
the 2 piles of snow that Breanna & Braden made.

Pilgrims & Indians

Braden's school had a Pilgrim & Indian feast
on Friday Nov. 21st.
On thur I went in to help make stone soup
with the class for the feast on Friday.
Bradens class were the pilgrims, and
Brody & Paxton's class were the Indians.
They had the stone soup that they had made,
they also had rolls with the butter that the kids
made, and apple or pumpkin pie for dessert.
The 2 classes put on a little show for the parents-
really cute!!!

Sitting down to a feast.

Lots and lots of pie!

Yeah Dad's Home!

Sunday afternoon we drove to Boston to pick
up Kev. The kids were so excited, Breanna
greeted him with her usual sweet welcome home
letter, she always signs it from Braden and
Mom also - pretty cute!
On our way home we stopped and had supper
at the Rain forest Cafe, the kids were super psyched
about that. We sat next to the Elephants.

Breanna and Braden had fun walking around and taking
pictures of each other by the animals.

What a fun night!
Oh ya, we topped it of with a slice of
cheese cake from the cheesecake factory to go.

Wilton Project

Wilton is really coming together, it seems like
lots is happening right now - flooring, lighting,
sight work. Here are a couple pictures.

Tuesday Nov 4th

Kevin flew out early Mon. morning after our
fall weekend get together.
He had a job in Arizona so he was gone for the week.
We had some great warm fall days at the beginning
of the week so we tried to enjoy them.
We met the Flynn's at Keyes field for some fun.
The Flynn's are the family that bought our Souhegan St
house and one of the daughters is in Breanna's grade so
we have been able to keep in touch - pretty neat.

Breanna and Keelyn
That night we asked Katie if she would go
with us to Manchester to pick up Kevin's truck
at the airport. We went to the mall & out for supper.

A mall favorite for the kids - the spinner!
Ya, I'm glad I can watch from the side they
get that thing spinning so fast!

Woo Hoo that was sooo fun!

Annual Fall Weekend Get Together

We had great weather for our fall weekend.
All of the families that stay with us during Milford
Convention come out for the weekend, and all of the
couples with young kids in the area.

The guys enjoyed some football in the front yard.

Most of the ladies.

Time for some hide-n-seek!!!
Everybody was so glad that we were able to get the
buggies out for this fun game. Last year we got rained out.
A load of girls, and

A load of boys!

Brad's group was the first to hide - a great
spot, but they had to get pulled out of the mud.

Nate & Shilo.

Mr. Sawyer!

The ladies escaped to the basement for a little
baby shower for Shelly Howe.
Sunday was union mtg. & pot luck at our place,
and another fun afternoon for the kids.
I took only one picture on Sunday, and I had
to post it because it is a great picture of Adam & Lisa.

Wish I had of taken more pictures of the weekend.
