Thanksgiving & Visit from the Kroghs

Thanksgiving Day

The kids with Yia Yia and Papou on Thanksgiving Day.

We just enjoyed a visit from my Aunt Mary and Uncle Jim the week before Thanksgiving. I love that my parents have a house down here, everyone comes to visit!

We had a great Thanksgiving today with Nick's family. My wonderful mother-in-law did almost all of the cooking. All I had to do was make potatoes. It was nice to just relax, so thank you Aleca! The week before Thanksgiving my Aunt Mary and Uncle Jim were down using my parents house. I always love seeing them and we had a lot of fun taking the kids to a farm, the aquarium and the beach. We ate dinner at the beach one night with them and afterwards Alexandra told me that was the best restaurant she has ever been to!

(I put an album of pictures to the right of Thanksgiving, the Kroghs' visit and a few other random pictures.)

Me and the kids! - An average day in our life!

Hello! Hello! We are all good here in Florida, looking forward to the holidays! This year we will stay down here in Florida for Thanksgiving and then will head up to Wisconsin for Christmas and New Years! In the meantime I have been busy painting our house and training for a half marathon that I will run in the beginning of December. The kids are both doing well. Alexandra is already anxiously waiting for Santa to come. She is a planner like her Mama and has already made a Christmas list. I am still waiting for words to spill out of Johnny's mouth. In the meantime he keeps himself very busy every day trying to either play with his sister or irritate her!

Halloween Week

My Mom and Dad were here for 5 days over Halloween. Grandma got to go to Alexandra's Halloween class party and Fall Festival.

The day before Halloween we took the kids to a farm where they could ride horses, ponies, take a hay ride, feed horses and pet a bunch of other animals. Johnny was our little equestrian. He loved the helmet!

And he loved the ponies even more. He wanted to keep riding them!

I think Alexandra has found a new love, horses. She looks like a natural and just can't get enough of them.


Our trick-or-treaters, they couldn't wait to go!

The cutest kitty kat in the neighborhood!
