Before I tell you too much about our Thanksgiving, I have a few updates I wanted to share with you. First of all, the other day Wade started saying "I don't know, sweetie," in this really sing-songy voice. After hearing it for awhile I asked him where he heard that from. He said, "Auntie Leah says that." :) Then, a few minutes later he said, "I'm a DISASTER!" I asked if Auntie Leah says that too! YUP! :)
I got my job. You know the job that I have been working at for a couple of months? Well, the week before T-day I interviewed for my job and I got it! The only thing that changes is that instead of being considered a sub, I will have a contract through the rest of this year.
Owen has been accumulating a few more words these days. Mostly he still communicates in grunts and points, but there are a few new words....like "MINE", "NO"...you know...all the fun words!
We went to WI for Thanksgiving. We ended up driving there. This was how Owen looked for some of the 28 hours it took us to get there. Oh, and my camera is MIA, so all of these pictures are from Leah's camera or pulled off of facebook! (Thanks Sarah and Kristi) :) If you have any pictures you think I would like, I would really appreciate them! Not sure how I'm going to be able to update my blog without a camera!
All 3 boys cozy in the back.

We spent the day at Joyce and Anders' house. It was wonderful as usual!

Tristan showing me just how the toaster works. It is a "toaster like Carolyn's not like ours." (We use a toaster oven.)
It has been 6 years since I've gotten to play in the Turkey Bowl!! We go to WI every other year for Thanksgiving, but 2 years ago I was 7 months pregnant with Owen and 4 years ago I was 7 months pregnant with Wade, so I have sat the bench with a "bloated abdomen". But this year I got to play!!! YIPPEE! It was great fun!
It is so much fun to read the "Skinny" every year!
Ready to play some football!
Back home for pie after the young team beat the old team.
On Friday my parents had a party catered for Garrett and Sarah's engagement and Kale and Jaspar's return from South Africa.
Delicious Friday fish fry!
Garrett and Sarah telling us how they met.
Jaspar and Kale told us about their adventures and performed some music for us!
This was the first time all four of us siblings have been together in 4 years, so it was really special!
