Mixed Up Thanksgiving

Here it is - Thanksgiving Break! Glad for the few days off but didn't really have the normal thanksgiving dinner. Since we were planning on a Saturday turkey with Ingird and Jake we passed on going to Jon and Jamie's for their big dinner on the same day. Well, Jon and Jamie said come on down and we will have something on Thursday. I suggested scallops and we did indeed have scallops. Jamie made a autumn salad, linguinie with alfredo sauce, plus lots of other goodies and I fried some scallops. Great time but Kate was wore out by the time we left and wondered if her 'cold' was coming back like it had already a few times. Anyway, pneumonia it was after a chest x-ray on Friday and so the rest of the plans were replaced with lots of bedrest.

Wow it has been a long time since I posted anything new here. I guess facebook has a way of making one feel connected without actually posting very much. Anyway, green is the correct word since our pastures finally have greened up and Kate mowed the lawn for the first time this spring. We moved the electric fence so that the cows could also mow down part of the lawn next to their pasture.

Just a couple of more pictures of our exciting holidays! As you can see Ingrid is checking out the internet connection and Jake is sharpening in knife with his new knife sharpener. Kate is going throught the numbers with Aiden and 5 lions and 6 flamingos are quite exiting. Granpa Roger is making different popcorn people with Aiden and Gunnar.

Well, we've been pretty busy with all going ons. Just before Christmas we met John and kids halfway between for supper and had a great time. Then for Christmas day we went to Layfayette for the day and had a great time with the 'robot dinosaurs' the kids got for Christmas. Then we got Gunnar and Aiden for about a week after Christmas so had lots of fun here. The pictures are really shown in the blog in reverse order. Oh, by the way, Happy New Year!!
