Christmas Lights

It was a chilly evening while setting up the Christmas lights, but sure made the snowman happy!
And here's hoping the deer "behave" and don't have any misadventures...
The sweet doe is happily eating the ivy...
So here we are approaching another holiday season...is it my imagination or are they coming faster every year?

Thankful Thanksgiving

We went to my parents for Thanksgiving! It was also Frank's birthday the day before, and my parents always remember it by hanging the "happy birthday" sign and giving Frank presents.
My kids were all together...a minor miracle! Here is Kara with her "oma!"
The boys where very chatty about, what else? Computers and game programs!!
Peter couldn't wait to eat! He loves the ham so much!!
And as is always the tradition, Frank gets to carve the turkey!! It was a wonderfully delicious dinner with the entire family together!!!!

Sweet Baby Shower on a Rainy Day...

Everyone had a wonderful time at Meghan's baby shower on a very rainy Saturday afternoon.
I finally got to give the block baby blanket I had been knitting for over a month. So glad it turned out well although I was unsure how to put it together at first, but whip stitching was the best way to do it. It also turned out bigger than I thought it would be which is great for covering up both mother and child.
Here's an adorable sailboat quilt stitched lovingly by the baby's "oma!" Each sailboat has an initial of the baby's name Donovan James Hein...so cute!
Here's Meghan mom-to-be with her mom Annelies...both were having a great time!
And here is Meghan with "Oma" and "Granny" to be! Here's hoping the delivery of baby Donovan goes smoothly in January!!

Chili Day

I made Chicken Chili today and it turned out delicious! I feel like it's finally autumn with the cooler evenings and cold mornings...
So I really had a craving for some warm chili! Best comfort food in the whole world!
