holiday prep and a little fun with photoshop

'big' helper

Ok, so the 'helper' part is a stretch. Anyway Griffin sure has figured out that the best place to be is in the kitchen. I am not a neat cook and he is all but guaranteed to get a few droppings.

Also, he could not be bothered to move so I could do the dishes. So, this was the result. don't worry, no animal was harmed in the process of unloading the dishwasher last night:)

Nov fun

November has proven to be a great month so far. I don't know if it is the good weather or that our calendar is less jam packed than usual but it has been really nice.
Lizzie trying to decide what to do about this puddle. Avoid it? Splash and stomp in it? Throw rocks in it? In the end, Griffin decided to splash and lay in it, so Lizzie and I hightailed it outta there.
Gathering boughs for holiday decorating.

Crab apple tree

New hotwater solar collector at the farm.

Lizzie helps Em & I gather pine cones for wreath decorating. So much fun!

Yummy apple cranberry crisp

Ron was up this weekend to go hunting with John. While they actually saw quite a few deer in the woods, none were close enough to get a good shot at. So, we had lobster instead!

Griffin lounging in bed. He is out of the crate now!

fall cleaning

Lizzie and I hung out yesterday. We had a great day despite tackling a fridge that was in DESPERATE need of cleaning. Lizzie seems to be having fun though. Am I a fun aunt or what!?!
