Happy Thanksgiving

Today we're grateful for many things, especially these three kids; pictured with my 95-year-old grandmother, Velda Case.

Yesterday, Cora, Dylan, and I headed to Wisconsin in style; via Brock Air. Grandpa Brock picked us up with his airplane for an express trip to the Midwest.

This morning we were greeted by the first snow of the year.

Perfect conditions for a morning run

Lunch with cousin Jack

Alex and Noelle will be joining us on Wednesday for Thanksgiving. Until then, they are enjoying some quality time together.

Ice Skating

Last week the girls had their first ice skating lesson and they took to it surprisingly well. There was, of course, a great deal of falling involved. They took it in stride, however, laughing and getting up every time!

Helmets are a must!

Support system?

Dylan, meanwhile, continued to keep us all entertained. This little guy has a wonderful, goofy personality!

You said to 'get in the bath'!

Witch who?

Halloween (belated)!

Our kiddos had a fantastic Halloween week. I say week, instead of day, because they had many opportunities to wear their costumes and get candy!

First, Dylan and Cora went to a Halloween parade at Longview, an assisted living facility near us. I didn't think to take pictures, but they had a great time and earned the candy to prove it.

Next up was trick-or-treating at our local Wegman's. This event was total mayhem, and a bit much for Noelle, but the siren-song of treats soon overpowered her crowd apprehension!

Ready to grab their loot!

'Super Cora' and 'Monkey Dylan' didn't hold back at all, especially not with two Batmans to protect them!

Finally, the real deal arrived and we hit the streets of our neighborhood with some friends. It was fun to go in a bigger group and see neighbors we normally don't bump into.

Here's a cute comparison of two-year-old Noelle and 18-month-old Dylan.

Who is the cutest monkey?
