Lots Going On - by Brad

So, we haven't blogged much lately since things have been busy. I have been swamped at work and Lindsey got the house ready for Thanksgiving and company, as well as squeezing Wesley's birthday in.

During Thanksgiving, Lindsey's sister's family stayed with us. The kids all had a great time playing. Elliott and Amy are only a few months apart (even though Amy is several inches taller), and they loved playing together for a few days.

We had Lindsey's family over for Thanksgiving. It was pretty stress-free since everyone else brought food. We only had to provide the space. There were a total of 16 kids and 17 adults. Below (from the top, left to right by stair): Wesley, Zeke, Ella, Eden, Hope, Abby, Claire, Hannah, Spencer, E.J., Amy, Lydia, Logan, and Elliott (Maisy and Madelyn are not pictured).

Then we had Wesley's 3rd birthday party on Saturday (even though Friday was his birthday). The cake is supposed to look like a "3" made of tools. It may not have been our best design, but it beat Elliott's cake a few months ago that was so bad it didn't make the blog.

Finally, today we got our first dusting of snow for this season! Not really enough for the boys to play in, but it lets us know that winter is on it's way. I guess we can officially move from the Thanksgiving mode into the Christmas mode.

you should be proud of that cake! I want to see the one that didn't make the blog...I'm sure it's great too!

That rock candy is making me hungry...

Wow! That's a big crowd for Thanksgiving- sounds like it went off without a hitch.

Sounds like I need to buy Mike rock candy now.
