Weekend Recap

 Last Friday  night we very excitedly headed to The Chrystal for our first Tom & Jerry's of the season. They were absolutely delicious and we really enjoyed starting the holiday season out right.
 Saturday we headed up to Dry Hill for our first big ski day of the season. The kids were in heaven and had such a great day outside in the fresh air.

 Saturday  night we went out for some bowling and drinks for Seth's soccer coaches 44th birthday. It was a fun night out with some of our new soccer friends.
 Sunday afternoon was craft time at our house. Leah brought home another family craft project for kindergarten and she was so excited to get started. She LOVES crafts and will sit at the table for hours doing them.

That's a wrap for a very busy, but fun filled weekend.
I loved this sleepy moment while Leah was hugging Elsa.
Thanksgiving week here we come. Turkey is thawing, we have our second contractor meeting of the week tonight and we have a kids versus parent soccer game tomorrow. Let the fun begin.

Weekend in Review

 Leah and I like to dress alike to spice up the long winter days...ha ha.
 Friday night I took the kids and met up with some friends from Seth's soccer team to watch Annie at WHS. It was great and we especially enjoyed seeing many of our Stage Notes Jr. friends in the cast. I actually think that the Wiley performers stole the show and made it awesome.

 Leah loves learning to read and write and woke me up bright and early on Saturday with this love note.
 Saturday night we celebrated Thanksgiving early with The Charlton's and had so much fun. We ate and drank and laughed, etc. It was a great night.

 We almost forgot to break out the turkey hat, but once I remembered the festivities really began.

 My little brother's wedding announcement was in the paper on Sunday. It is so exciting.
 Sunday we started our long awaited family tradition of watching SU basketball together. We all broke out the orange clothing and cheered on our favorite team. BONUS...they won.
Rocky continues to get weaker and weaker. We continue to love him as much as possible. His favorite past time is snuggling.
This week is full of double sports, Roland going away again and an upcoming weekend of nights out with friends. It's been a long time since we have gone out two nights in a row and it might put us in nap mode come Sunday.

Veteran's Day

 Hooray for a day off in the  middle of the week and hooray for the all the men and women who fight for our country past and present. We respect you all greatly.
 We spent part of Veteran's Day with our favorite veteran; my grandpa. We went for lunch at the diner in Lowville and a mysterious couple even bought our lunch in honor of my grandpa serving in WWII and being a veteran. The kindness of strangers was so touching.
 Progress...land progress...tree removal progress.
 I hope you can make these out. It was hard taking pics with the sun on that particular day.
 It's all truly exciting. I met with the bank on Monday and now as soon as we decide on a house plan the contractor interviews will begin.
Rocky is suffering and I often find him like this because his legs give out. It is heartbreaking. I love that furball so much.

Land Update

 See all of the brush? Working to get this cleared out soon so we can have a backyard in the future.
 Hopefully when this is cleared we could see Dry Hill from our future back deck someday.
This is the front yard that needs to be thinned out.
After pictures in the near future I hope.

Thank You Pepsi

 Once again we are so grateful to have been invited to watch the game in the Pepsi booth at the Dome. It was packed this year and the kids had a blast.
 Leah ate her face off and it wasn't fruit this time. She has no idea what happened during the game, she people watched and ate junk food.
 During half time many area bands performed together on the field. It was interesting.
Seth and Jake enjoyed the cheerleaders the most I think.

Let's GO Orange

 Traditions Traditions...every year we go to an SU football game with our friends from Pepsi and every year the food gets better and better and we eat more and more. This year was no exception.
 Grill master Lewis did not disappoint this year.
 He even brought homemade Tom & Jerry's and they put The Chrystal Restaurant to shame. They were out of this world and so perfect on a cold wet fall day.

 The kids played corn hole, soccer and of course football.
 Leah mostly ate...thank goodness she mostly ate fruit kabobs.
 The boys even made a friend.

Kabobs of all kinds, half hots, chili and tons of adult beverages were consumed.
Such a fun day...oh and we went to the game too. HA.


Halloween was a success. The kids got gobs of candy and had more fun giving out candy.
