Shaver Lake Thanksgiving

Our family had a great Thanksgiving at Shaver Lake. We played games, fed the ducks at the lake, walked around the shops in town, spent some time at the swing, and overall had a nice long weekend with the family. The weather was cool and wintery and it even snowed the second night of our stay. The one bummer: A nasty stomach flu bug made the rounds between the two cabins and 19 of the 21 of us there caught it at some point. Fortunately it was a quick illness and didn't put a damper on our weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This year Chad, Maggie and I are going to Shaver Lake for Thanksgiving. Spending the holiday weekend with us will be Chad's parents, siblings, nieces and nephews. There will be 21 of us in all! I'm expecting to have a great time and hope to have some fun photos to share after we return. Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

First Night Out

Last night my parents were nice enough to come over and stay with Maggie for the evening. It was our first night without her in tow and we all survived. Chad and I were invited to our friends' wedding and we had a great time, even if I was checking my phone every 15 minutes to make sure I didn't miss a call from my folks. Chad was spot-on with his do-you-want-to-see-how-cute-my-baby-girl-is role and the people at the wedding were kind enough to look at the photo on his Blackberry. They agreed that Maggie really is cute.

Hard to believe she's going to be four months old tomorrow.

Even though we didn't take her with us, here's a photo of us looking all fancy and Maggie looking all cozy in her jammies.

Happy Halloween

This year we had an eventful Halloween. Maggie dressed up as a candy corn and we think she looked pretty cute in her costume. Besides going to the pumpkin patch, Maggie and I hit a trunk-or-treat at our church on Wednesday and had a photo session at a local boutique on Saturday with our friends Amy and Liam.

Friday night our friends Jim and Kellie had their annual pumpkin carving party so Chad, Maggie and I went to that, staying up too late and having a blast.

Last night, Halloween, we had family (Great Old Aunt Leslie, cousin Bailey, Uncle Gabe, cousin Chris and his girlfriend Michelle) come to town to go trick-or-treating. Maggie didn't trick-or-treat, but she did have fun in the stroller going from door to door with Bailey. Chad stayed home to give out candy and did a great job.
