Youth Ice Skating & Broomball

The youth went to Lloyd Center to ice skate and play broom ball. The broom ball looks kind of scary but they all seem to have a blast. :)

Thanksgiving Breakfast

Long ago we decided to make Thanksgiving an all day thing. So we start with breakfast and then dinner in the late afternoon. This year breakfast was at Rachel's house. I really liked the table decor, so pretty!!

A Platinum Elite

My son composed this poem several years ago, he doesn't like it but I think its so cute!! At our Church we call the elderly folks the Platinum Elite. Now you must read this poem all the way to the end, so not to get the wrong idea. We love older people so much!!

A Platinum Elite

A Platinum Elite,
Is like an old piece of meat.
Like an old pair of pants,
Without any pleats.

When their hearing goes bad,
They get hearing aides.
When they get Alzheimer's,
They say its old age.

They are like an old drum,
That soon loses rebound.
They are like lost glasses,
That cannot be found.

They are like an old record player,
When the needle gets broken.
They are like an old hymn,
That never is spoken.

They are like a piece of bread
That when it gets old,
Is covered from top to bottom,
In fuzzy, green mold.

They are like an old page,
Torn from a book.
They are like an old fish,
Caught on a hook.

They are like an old record case,
That begins to crumble and crack.
They are like an old car,
When the tires go flat.

They are like an old elephant,
With a lot on their mind.
They are like an old friend,
That really is kind.

So when you need someone to talk to,
They are not hard to find.
Like an old mountain,
That hasn't been mined.

So summing it up,
A Platinum Elite,
Sounds something like someone,
I’d like to meet.

I love the weekend after Thanksgiving!! Now first of all I am NOT an all night shopper but I do love to go shopping on Saturday after the Holiday. It puts me in the Christmas spirit. We went with grandma and had a nice time shopping and eating of course!! I took this picture with my Iphone and the flash kind of made it looked washed out :) the pic was taken at a HEALTHY Italian restaurant called Pastini Pastaria I thought it was good but I don't think the boys were to impressed by it.

After Thanksgiving Poem

Jacob has a very wonderful talent for writing poems at the drop of a hat!! It takes me three days to get one line written. I thought this was so appropriate I asked him if I could post it on my blog!!

Twas the Day After Thanksgiving
And all through the place
Everyone was groaning
It was quite a disgrace

For gluttons they were
And they now must pay the price
For eating to much on Thanksgiving
Their dignity they did sacrifice

They ate like men on death row
Like those who were doomed
I even saw this one guy
Eating with two spoons

It was a frantic eating frenzy
As I tried to calm everyone down
They all screamed, jumped and shouted
Well, until the chandelier fell down.

No remorse they felt
As they filled their empty plates
Webster said," I'm skinny!
Could use to gain some weight."

I shook my head in utter dismay
While walking out of the room
These people who say they are celebrating
Are really sealing their Edible Doom.

Fall Dinner

Caleb came up with the idea to have a Family Fall Dinner, so we did. It was nice to start the Holiday season early, I think we will keep this new tradition. We had lunch at grandma's house and served Mexican food. To see the rest of the pictures click HERE
