Aunt Kass's Yard


Thanksgiving was beautiful. We gather the family, dress up, use china, sing songs and have traditional food. It is truly ideal. I love watching the turkey trot but alas, the boys weren't there to show off. We each wrote what we were thankful for and then had a little guessing game trying to figure out who wrote what. Grateful to Aunt Kass and Aunt Mar for there hospitality, work and generosity.

As we gather together this Thanksgiving to ask the Lord's blessings, as we of whatever faith we are to give praises to His name, let us thank Him for our peace, prosperity, and freedom. Happy Thanksgiving!" - Pres. Ronald Reagan

This morning we had Laura over for playtime. She is such a happy little gal. We were glad to have company and to put Clara's younger toys to use!

Warm and Cool

These were taken at Kelly's med school Western U. Because of the fires the air has been really smokey and hazy.

Sports Balls

My nephew Jackson is getting a new sports themed room. These photos were taken for that. His little sibling is coming soon and we are all excited for them. I think sports is a fun idea for little boys.

Finger Puppets

These Ikea finger puppets are the greatest things! It has been so fun to teach and test Clara on all the different animals. We put them all in a little box and shake it up and ask "Clara, can you find the star fish?" or "Can you find the green fish?" She looks for a little while and then reaches in and grabs it! I get so proud!

Scary Pumpkin

Kassie and I had a great time carving pumpkins on Tuesday. She did a cute owl and I did this funky witch. They didn't even last two days and our pumpkins were full of mold! Yuck! I asked Kelly to take ours out before it had fallen apart. Poor Kelly, he waited a day and now look as his job! Now that is a scary pumpkin!
