Happy Thanksgiving!!!

A few pictures from our very fun and very fast trip to WI to celebrate Thanksgiving and see our families and friends.

It snowed :)

I made the pies!

Poor Tom :(

Mmmm Mmmm Good

On Saturday we spent the day with Philip and Tirzah and Joel and Alicia, but unfortunately forgot to take any pictures. I guess we were just having too much fun. We had yummy oysters (well Dylan, Philip and Tirzah liked them:) shrimp cocktails and lobster. On Sunday came the ten hour drive back to Missouri. Raquel was really good, and now just three and a half weeks before we go back for CHRISTMAS!!!!! WHoohooo!

What's going on??

It's been a little while since we posted any pictures, so some of these are a little old. At the beginning of the month Raquel assisted me in canning 19 quarts of applesauce. Besides sitting in the box of apples, she also saved me some work in peeling them by taking a small bite out of as many apples as she could and then spitting it out.

Half-way there!

We've had some beautiful weather lately. This night we ate with our neighbors the Tylers outside. Raquel really likes Ana, and gets very excited when they see each other:)

Where's Dylan?

Gun hunting season began on Saturday. Dylan has gone every morning so far, but no luck yet.

Like father like daughter

Hopefully Dylan will get a deer soon because Raquel is running out of biltong!

And lastly, as I was in my room this afternoon, I thought things were a little too quiet, so I went out in the kitchen and found this SWEET little girl :(If you click on the picture, you can see the sugar granules crusted on her face:)
