Carpal Tunnel Surgery

Pat had his first carpal tunnel surgery today.  He has the other hand done in a couple weeks. 
He looks a little drugged up in this picture, but he is sleeping now and on the road to recovery

Looking back on summer...August 13

It was snowing yesterday....November 14th, so it feels good to relive the warmth of summer.
For years I have wanted to stop at this field of black-eyed susans and take pictures.
I would have been fun to have photos of all ten kids in the field, but I will have to settle for the youngest 3. 
On the same day, a dear friend took us to see Stockbridge Falls...I didn't even know there was a real Stockbridge Falls. 
I just thought it was a side road on the way to Grandma's house...Stockbridge Falls Road. 
Luke lasted here for about 2 minutes and then worries overtook him and he headed back up the hill. 
Grace and Kim in the culvert under the road.
It was a busy day....we ended it with a trip to the beach.

I will wait for these days to return as the snow falls outside for the next 5 or 6 months.

Happy 20th Birthday, Laura!!

 Laura and her best buddy, Luke...I now have 6 children in their twenties. 
That's just crazy!!  That's 60% for my children!
 We had a little crowd for Laura's pizza and tater wedges dinner. 
 I was sorry to be missing Matt and Alexis, Amy and Lianna.
 The four "littles"---all under 20 years old
 Happy, happy birthday, Laura!!
I love you...even though it took a couple blows to get all those candle out!
