Over the River and Through the Woods

We literally went over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house this weekend.

We had a pleasant Thanksgiving with family and a relaxing/leisurely visit.

The highlights for the kids (other than spending time with family) was:

For the girl - catching a frog down at the creek. Unfortunately she brought the frog home to grandma's and left it on the back porch. Unfortunately b/c there was a cat on the back porch. The next time the girl went looking for froggy - he was gone. And the cat was grinning :)

For the boy - doing a little BB gun shooting with his dad. He was quite proud to report to me that he hit a can on the fence, 5 times in a row! Dad didn't do quite so well.

On Sunday morning the children awoke to the first real snow of the season. I figured there would be no snow back home when we arrived - but I was mistaken. Our little hamlet had even more snow than they did out at grandma's.

I brought my camera, planning on taking some interesting photos. Unfortunately the camera was usually upstairs and I was downstairs - out of sight out of mind.

I did manage to take a couple of photos of the kids with 2 of their cousins, before we left on Sunday. And I did take a photo of an interesting family heirloom...
