Well, we really appreciated Jack’s post with Thanksgiving wishes and yes, this family has much to be thankful for. The WFR08 truly was the year’s highlight and am just hoping that when we plan another, more of us can come and join the party. Although I have meant to post some photos, I have been remiss and now, I can only hope this one is successful. I’ll start with a group shot from today just before Ben, Jess, and girls departed.We had a good family gathering….lots of hugging, reading, playing, and of course, eating. Madeline and Makenna can hold up their end of a conversation now and are quite curious about everything.
Alexa is growing fast and is now in clothes in the nine-month size. She is very content to just sit on your lap and smile, unless she is hungry or needs a diaper and then she just says so. Somehow, this photo of Ben never got posted and I wanted to share it with you all. He is a great Daddy and all of his girls obviously love him. Also, on our minds and in our thoughts in the next couple of weeks will be Duke who will have surgery early next month. Am hoping that we will hear that Duke and the boys had a fun hunt this weekend. Debra and I made a quick trip to Eagle River a couple of weeks ago and were able to get some photos with the girls. Here’s a shot of our friendly black bear that often visits, but is elusive to the lens. And finally, a shot from my favorite fishing trip of the year. Well, am hoping this will get uploaded. I plan to try to call some of those that might not see the org. Looking forward to seeing Isaac and Mandi Wednesday evening and hoping to see some of the rest of you very soon. Love, Pete
