Thanksgiving Weekend

We had a great Thanksgiving with Grandma Jan and Grandpa Win. We had a yummy dinner on Thursday with lots of pie and ice cream, a fun day shopping on Friday, and a great trip into the city on Saturday. Maren and Harry both loved the Indonesian food we had for lunch that day. Some of our favorite parts of the weekend were watching both Ice Age movies, building with Lincoln Logs, playing outside, and jumping on the air mattress in the living room. We are all sad that Grandma and Grandpa had to go back to Caracas, but we're counting down the days 'till we see them again at Christmas.

A Day in the City

We had a nice three day weekend because of Veteran's Day so we decided to drive into New York City on Saturday morning. We visited the Egyptian collection and the armor at the Met, took a walk in the park, and spent some time at the Central Park Zoo.

Baby news!

We're having a baby sister! Can you help us think of names?


Maren and Harrison had a spooktacular Halloween! They had parties at school, a costume parade, and a great neighborhood party before heading out for Trick-or-treating.


Maren and Harrison both had haircuts on Monday in preparation for Halloween. They both look so grown up!
