a few firsts for us

We've had a few "firsts" over the last month.

1) Mike and I celebrated our first Thanksgiving as a married couple. We had a lot of fun...we spent it with Tim & Nikki at their place. Traditional dinner ~ Turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, stuffing, rolls, and a cake...oh and some yummily seasoned popcorn...all very delicious. We played bowling on the Wii and then played Yatzee. It's always a great time with Tim & Nikki...I really look forward to hanging out with them. They'll be coming to our place for Christmas (as long as they don't jet off on a vacation.) :)

(It took us six attempts to get the above picture -- some puppies(and I won't name any names) wouldn't cooperate)

(Mike and Tim seem to be just as uncooperative as the pups - Nik looks beautimous though...Thanks Nikki!)

2) I wore my winter coat for the first time last night. :) I've been getting by with a sweatshirt and scarf but last night on the way to volleyball, I just couldn't take the wind so I bundled up in a sweatshirt, scarf, and my winter coat.

3) Mike and I enjoyed a lovely date night at Iron Bridge Wine company(Mike's first time there) a week or so ago. We went all out with appetizer, entree, dessert, and wine. It was both of our first time eating Foie Gras...very yummy.

As I was telling Kate and Adena at dinner last Saturday...Life is great, but nothing earth-shattering to report. Life is fantastic just the way it is! So thankful for my husband and kids(aka Stuart and Boulevard) during this holiday season.

P.S. Are you still trying to GET ACTIVE?(see previous post) Keep up the good work. I'm still working hard at my "Cross-train to win" competition. Up today is kickboxing and either Cross-Training or Water Aerobics ~ I haven't quite decided.

Sounds like you are having fun--can you believe it's December? Any news on that job Mike was looking into?

You know, I am thinking we made something similar in country school--I'm remembering some pine cone fire starters, I think we may have dipped them in wax first? And did they even smell like cinnamon?

Janna - We did make fire starters at Dist. #158. Hopefully when we get our woodburning stove (at some point) for our house, I will have to make some of those with the kids. We made a lot of really cute stuff at Dist. #158! I think mom still has some of the ornaments that we made "eon's" ago!
