We headed to the cities Friday night (a week ago) and made it before 10pm! Finally! We got to bed early, so Mark could go out hunting...Saturday, we hung around Jack & Nancy's most the day and had fun reconnecting with friends on Sunday...Monday we had an all day playdate at Tiffany' was great to see my old friends and watch how their kids have grown! Almost all were pregnant...Karie & I were the only non-prego people! :) Tuesday Mark got up early one last time to hunt, while we had Shannon Fure & Jack over...we had so much fun catching up and swapping books! Tuesday night we headed up to the cabin in Brainerd and enjoyed some R&R, we decided to stay in the area an extra couple of days at a hotel. We took the kids to see Madagascar II. It was cute! It was nice to have the theatre to ourselves, so Alli could roam as she needed too...I shopped until I dropped and than, we headed back to Ely last Saturday afternoon...we made a quick stop in Grand Rapids, at Judy Garland's birthplace...let me tell you! It was the PERFECT place for kids!!! If you have a day or weekend get away! I promise you will be there with your kids for a minimum of 4 hours! IT WAS FABULOUS!!! This week has been low key for us, b/c we came down with colds :(...but I am thankful it was last week instead of this coming week. Wednesday we had ladies bible study, talking about how use to divorce and satan blinds us to what truth is! We had pastie night on Tuesday night and had Bill and Doreen over for dinner! I practiced making a pumpkin pie for thanksgiving, and it was a hit...nummy! Well...we had church today and tonight we actually have a Thanksgathering service, all the churches in town gather at Ely Baptist and worship Christ and have a thanksgiving service (Im curious to see if anyone gets up to speak, and questioning the whole idea, b/c we all believe differently...but we are going to check it out and leave if we need too) We are having Thanksgiving all by ourselves this year...kind of fun...first time ever! Jack and Nancy flew out to Sharon and Brandon's for a while and Brenda and Kirk are driving up to them too...Anyways, sorry the post is so long! I had to catch up from last week when we had colds. Miss you guys!
