Santa 2017

We were short one Anthony this year, but I will find a way to get over it someway, someday... 

Walk for hunger

Thank you to all of our supporters. This year we played from 7 am - 9 am before heading to the 2nd floor to walk our 5K. 


We had an opportunity to attend a private screening of Wonder. It was great! 

1st Orchestra Concert of the season.

We enjoyed the St. Thomas String Orchestra Concert featuring the music of Mendelssohn, Respighi, Nielsen, and Elizondo.

Anthony was 3rd chair viola.

Cooper Craft Fair

All four boys volunteered at the coffee shop this year. The three younger ones also helped set up and take down. The girls worked. 

Trick Or Treat

We had a fun Halloween. The house was decorated with pumpkins, ghosts, and zombies.

The kids were ready to go by 5:45. Daddy took a little longer and the left the house at 6:10. I stayed home with my wine to hand out candy.

They started off running and didn't drag themselves home until 9:15 pm. Yes, we now have way too much candy. Once they came home, I turned off the porch light and we called it a night. We had 45 kids visit. 

Pumpkin Fun

Happy No Hunger November!

This year, just as we have been every year for over 10 years, we are  joining fellow Minnesotans and participating in the Walk to End Hunger on Thanksgiving morning. 

Hunger is still an important issue facing 1 in 5  families. The partner organizations putting on the Walk to End Hunger need our help.

 A $25 donation can provide enough food for 75 meals for someone struggling to put food on the table.

I found a few old photos. I'm not sure what happened to the really old photos. You know the kind that happened in a camera, with film, and negatives. So these will have to do.
