Our Thanksgiving

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, we spent it with the Kelley Family. Kathy cooked a fabulous meal. Drew and Luke had a blast playing with each other. I think they took out every toy Luke has and played with it. They sure made a mess, but it was obvious they had fun together.

Kyra was busy trying to keep up with the boys. She was up and down the stairs a lot because my legs are sore from keeping an eye on her. Kyra loved watching baby Josh eat sweet potatoes for the first time. Man, he really liked them; he ate the whole jar.

Mike and I were in great company with Kathy, Karl, and Pete (Karl's pilot friend). We are very thankful for our new found friendship. Thanks to the Kelley Family for a fun night!

The kids in their Thanksgiving Day hats! Kyra, Drew, Josh, & Luke

Go MN Hockey!

Kyra Lee

Fall has been such a fun time of year for all of us, but especially Kyra. Now that she's 14 months, she's walking, climbing, and getting into everything. She loves her independency. She LOVES to read books, push her baby doll around in a baby stroller, play with the toy kitchen, and do whatever Drew's doing.

Drew Martin

Drew started preschool the end of August and is loving it. He has 4 other kids in his class and really likes his teacher. He has also starting ice skating lessons. He's doing well, but he really likes when Mike or I take him to open skate. We're hopeful he'll like hockey.He's in swimming lessons as well and LOVES it! The teacher said he was a great listener and will do really well :) Drew's excited to go to MN for the holidays and skate with his Uncles Matt and Mark and Grandpa Greg, play with his cousins Natalie, Cody, Cole, Katelyn, decorate cookies with Grandma Mary, go shopping with Grandma Sandy, play with Steve, stay at Aunt Emily and Uncle Zach's house, and all the other fun things that we'll do when we're there!
