October was a busy month for us. And an expensive month. In lieu of a Disney trip we opted for new siding. Four days in Disney would have been cheaper.
November was an awful month for us. David's mom died rather suddenly. Dealing with the stress of a hospitalization, a terminal cancer diagnosis and her passing only 2 weeks later put blogging on the bottom of my list of things to do.
However, I think I'm ready to get back to it.
Here are a few photos from the past few months.
The before photo. Complete with pumpkins and Gianna!
After photo - only missing Gianna.
A beautiful fall day at the zoo.
Gemma earned a literacy award in October.
Finally had our family photos done (LOVE THEM), but have yet to order them.
Cousins - at Halloween
The entire clan - we had our last Sunday dinner just 5 days after mom passed.
Gianna being cute at her pre-school Christmas program.
Our annual Christmas tradition - the Macy's display in Minneapolis.
Gianna writing her letter to Santa.
Her adorable little girl hands.
David and the boys at the pinewood derby races. Joshua finished 2nd and Spencer in 5th place.
David and Judy at Amanda's confirmation. David was her sponsor.
Spencer earned a literacy award in February.
That will have to do for now - I promise not to take another four months to update. :)
