Kenan's pumpking is throwing up.  Shana's is singing the ABC song.

We woke this morning to huge soft wet flakes coming down.  Had no choice but to go out in it before breakfast.  And after breakfast… well, our stuff wasn’t too wet so we went out again.

We gave our snowman two faces.  One looking at the house, the other looking at the neighbours.

We took advantage of the “warm” weekend (temperatures got above freezing!) and finally did what we’ve been wanting to the last several years:  a family outing to a pumpkin farm.

It’s too cold for the pumpkins to still be on the vine, but there were plenty of other fun activities for us, including a corn maze, a pumpkin canon, pumpkin slingshot, hay ride, and more.

The weather warmed right up this weekend so all but a few shady clumps of snow are gone, but here you go with some shots from last week.

Saturday:  a breaker broke so we’re doing laundry by candlelight

Sunday:  prepared for Thanksgiving

Monday:  had Thanksgiving dinner with Dad and Mom.  Replaced the broken breaker.  Lights still don’t work.  Oops, guess that wasn’t the problem.

Tuesday:  biked to work in fresh snow.  Winked at the frustrated drivers as I pedaled past them.  Called an electrician.

Here’s a picture of Shana:
