Happy Birthday Elliot

On Friday this handsome young man turned 9 years old. It was still very dark outside as we all got out of bed to start the day off with pancakes, ice cream, and sprinkles. After that, it was time to go to school. Elliot brought a homemade alligator pull-apart-cupcake-cake with him, which all the kids really liked. Upon his return from school there were more surprises. In his room, mormor was hiding in a giant box. She brought Lego and a cool/cute homemade moose. Elliot was also ecstatic to learn about the Apple gift certificate which Farmor had sent (thank you Farmor), and Sienna had crafted a personal greeting card with two of Elliot’s favorite foods, soy sauce and salmon. Finally, Elliot also found the time to color in the greeting card from great grandma in Canada (thank you great grandma). After a lovely and sunny afternoon, we headed downtown to meet up with Shawn for a game of petanque and some juicy burgers.

Fall break with Farmor

October was once again filled with lots of fun and laughter as Farmor came for her yearly visit to Denmark. Pumpkin carving, shrunken apple heads, cookie decorating, and lots of board games were on the menu. In addition we also did some outings; a nice brunch, a fun game of shuffleboard followed by tasty burgers, a trip to the aquarium, the apple orchid, the beach, and of course, the traditional trip to Tivoli. The kids are already counting the days until Farmor returns next year.
