We had a deck put on the back of our house this fall. It is almost done, just a few more screws to put in the decking. There is still painting to do to the trim pieces in the spring and some more landscaping to do, but at least we can use the deck now that it is getting COLD!! Here are a few pictures of its current state:
Today Dad and I and Paxton spread some mulch between the two retaining walls behind the garage and also on the banking next to the garage. It was good to get that part of the project done. At least that should help keep things from washing out so much.

We were at Uncle Roger's barn for Thanksgiving yesterday. There were 42 of us there. Not quite all of the family but we had some extras to help fill up the table. It was really nice to all be together. In the afternoon we went over to the Hampshire Dome and played some soccer, football and kickball. Some of the ladies walked around on the track while the others played. It was a good day with lots of good food and fun times.

Friday Paxton had an early Thanksgiving Party at school. Braden's class were Pilgrims and Paxton and Brody's class were Indians. They sang a couple of songs and then had a feast consisting of Stone Soup, Rolls and Pumpkin or Apple Pie. It was neat to see all the kids together. Johanna had gone in that morning to help set up.
Thursday evening Mom and Dad came over for supper along with Brad and Shelley's family to celebrate Mom's Birthday. Shelley and Johanna fixed a delicious meal and Dad had brought a chocolate cake. We had a fire in the fireplace and the kids had fun playing together.

Shaelyn started crawling this evening. We'll really have to keep track of her now!! It was rainy off and on today so we stayed inside and went through some stuff in the basement while the kids played. Kevin and Jody and the kids came over for supper and the evening. We had a fire in the fireplace. Then while we were sitting around in the living room, we put the cell phone with music playing on the floor and Shaelyn crawled over to it and would play with it. That kept us entertained for a while. She would get mad when the music would stop or you took the phone away from her.
