Rode home in Cate's jacket...both Cate and Joseph aren't our " dog lovers" I love how smitten they both are with him....so not like them with a dog.
The kids didnt know we were getting a puppy. So when we got home Cate hid outside with him still in her jacket. I went inside and asked them all to come outside and that I was wondering who ripped up our blow up snowmen out front....they all came out ...someone stating they had put a rock on one ...we just smiled. Then they kept trying to figure out if the snowmen were indeed ripped and Cate came around and Mary Kate said, " Could it have been a puppy?" The kids faces and reactions were priceless....

The beginning of Thanksgiving - celebrating my grandaughter, Ella's bday by teaching her how to make sushi. This was followed by a celebration movie and dinner with Cate....
My brother, Johnny came for the day. We have not been able to celebrate Thanksgiving for years and it was a precious gift to have him with us.
We ate lots of food - there was about 60 of us eating ...but that is only a few more than our normal : )
Decorating their first tree....after they got engaged ...wedding bells. A week for them...love them both.
