Farewell to November

Last Thursday we spent a snowy Thanksgiving with our friends, Mindy and Paul, at their home on the hillside. As you can tell by these pictures, they have also received quite a bit of snow. On Thanksgiving, it was supposed to be sunny and cold. Yet it snowed lightly all day and all night. In fact, we have had right at 3 feet of snow since October 30th! We have come very close to breaking a record snowfall for the month of November. It is snowing lightly now but I don't think we will be able to make it to the record amount. Mindy outdid herself with the scrumptious buffet of holiday delights. Everyone had their fill and then some! After the feast we bowled on the Wii system with Paul, Hunter, and Kendra. Hunter came prepared in his official 1957 bowling shirt. Even though he clearly won the bowling championship that night, it was later ruled by the judges that he had used an unofficial Wii controller. Therefore, forfeiting his championship and dreams to the next highest scorer. We figured that instead of naming a new champion we would have a new tournament at a later date. On Friday Greg somehow found the will to get up and go to work. Saturday we made our way downtown and did a little shopping in support of the small businesses. When we got home from our chilly walk, Greg made chicken and dumplings and we ate, stayed in, and stayed warm for the rest of the weekend. Thanks again Mindy and Paul.
