Thanksgiving - Part 2

On Thanksgiving Day we went down to Mom and Dad's house to have Thanksgiving dinner with them. It was just the six of us, but we had had our big family meal the saturday before. It was a nice relaxing low key day. After lunch Dad and I went for a ride around while Shaelyn took a nap and Paxton played and read books. Then we went down to Leighton and Judy's for supper with their family. Paxton had fun playing with the "big boys" (Austin, Broson and Stefan). Today Paxton wanted to play hockey so we went out to lunch with Grampa and then got a floor hockey stick and ball. When we got home we backed the cars out of the garage (because it was raining outside) and played hockey. He had played with the boys last night and really liked it so he was pretty bent on playing today. I am sure we will have to play again tomorrow!!

Thanksgiving - Part 1

Last Saturday we went down to Uncle Roger's barn for our Chappell Thanksgiving feast. There were about 55 of us there. It was nice to all be together. Of course there was LOTS and LOTS of food and desserts!!

Mom's Birthday Surprise

Last Friday night we were to go out to eat with my parents and Brad and Shelley's family for my mom's birthday. Dad had flown her two sisters up to surprise her. They were at the restaurant when she got there. She was totally surprised!!! It was nice that they could be together for the weekend.

This will catch you up quick!!

Sorry for the loooong delay between posts. We are still alive and kickin' here!! Let's see, we'll catch you up quick on some of the highlights of the last couple of months. Johanna's parents were here for a couple of weeks back in October. They were here for Pumpkin Festival weekend which was a little chilly but still fun to get out and see all the activities. Then there was Fall Fun Weekend and Halloween. Paxton had a little halloween parade at his school which was fun to see all the kids in their costumes. So that is some of the things that have gone on in the last couple of months along with school and work, etc. Here are a few pictures to give you a visual:
