Our 9th Anniversary

Today was our 9th wedding anniversary. The good news is that we were actually on the same continent, in the same country, state, city and house this year! The bad news is that we will not be able to go out to dinner to celebrate until early next week due to Michael’s work schedule and Thanksgiving. And even though it did not much seem like an anniversary, it was still a good day. Alley and I made cranberry bread from a recipe on the back of one of their favorite children’s books, “Cranberry Thanksgiving”. It is becoming a tradition since we have made it for the last 3 or 4 Thanksgivings. It is very good! I also have the last tray of my second batch of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies in the oven right now.

We had another unusually warm, beautiful November day today so after Dresden’s nap, the kids and I headed over to a park nearby that we recently discovered. It has a pretty pond with ducks and a small island with a bridge leading to it and lots of picnic benches and a walking trail around the pond. It also has a nice playground and a gazebo and a few shelter houses. We took bread with us today and the kids fed the ducks. They also played on the playground and I walked on the trail a little. Then the sun started going down and it was getting cool so we headed home. It’s too bad that it is almost winter and we will not be able to enjoy this park for awhile but we are looking forward to some picnics and walks when spring arrives again!

Happy Thanksgiving!
