New bags by the old bag

Long before summer, I promised the boys new meeting bags. I finally got them done just in time for sp. mtgs and was so happy when they were just about as excited as I was when they saw them for the first time today. They are made from old swiss army blankets and are VERY itchy but used as bags they don't bother you that way. I still need to come up with some way to keep the flaps closed.


Our Thanksgiving dinner was on Saturday and we had it together with two other was in the Emmental and the view was beautiful! We used to live close by here and it made us feel a little homesick for the beautiful mountains and farmhouses. Our day was like most thanksgivings, way too much good food and lots of sitting around chatting. The kids ate the least and ran around the most so they weren't quite as miserable as we were in the evening...TOO MUCH FOOD! It was a great day though and it was good to catch up with old friends.

Baking season is upon us

We are looking for alternative forms of entertainment to outside activities these days as WINTER is here. It has just been hovering around freezing but then there is a breeze too and it goes through all layers of clothing and chills to the bone. Brrr. This afternoon we baked bread and played a few more rounds of Take it Easy, our new game. It has been fun to play with the boys and although it says for age 10+, we all play and even the youngest player has been known to smoke the rest of us. We are looking forward to Thanksgiving, which will do on Saturday with a few other families. I am to bring rolls, chestnuts and sauce and an apple pie. So more baking will be happening these next few days.

The boys cut out some cookie shapes tonight and it looked so cute with Liam climing up on the table to be close to his work. Notice the telltale dough package behind Liam. Love that homemade dough! We have a new game, Take it Easy and have been having fun with it. It involves math and logic so it has been great for our brains!

Post bath hair

The boys were cute this evening when they got out of the tub.

26 weeks

26 weeks and kicking like crazy! The boys were forced into posing for a picture with their increasng mom. I have been instructed by my dr. to take it easy this weekend as I had some contractions this past week. So that is not very easy advice to follow but I am trying. The boys are getting good at the dishwasher and helping Ralph get meals ready. I think we will have to keep this up. I am happy that there is finally a little belly showing! I am feeling good otherwise. Enjoying a quiet Sunday.
