Thanksgiving in Pittsburg

We went up north to the Lodge on wednesday with Mom and Dad and Brad and Shelley's family for Thanksgiving. It was a fun time. We rode the four wheelers a little bit and did some sledding out on the front hill. It spit snow off and on most every day we were there. There was only a couple of inches of snow, but it was enough to do some sledding. We had a fire in the fire pit one evening, played some games and read books. We went out to dinner one evening and had Neal and Debbie and Bill Smith for lunch on Saturday. We headed home on Sunday after meeting.

Chappell Thanksgiving

The Saturday before Thanksgiving we had a meal down at the barn with all of the family. There were about 70 people there. Lots of food, laughs and games.

Sitting by the Fire

Tonight we built a fire in the fireplace and the kids are sitting by the fire with their pillows. A good way to spend a chilly evening.

The Wiggles Show

Friday night we went down to Boston to see the Wiggles. We had taken Paxton a few years ago when they had come through the area before Shaelyn was born. Shealyn really likes the Wiggles now so we decided to take her to see them this year.
