Our Week in Pictures

It's been a busy week.
Who am I kidding? It's always a busy week.
I'm just making excuses for not having the energy to write. Pictures will have to replace my words today.

Last weekend we had a visit from an old friend. Mel was one of Will's therapists for a long time and it is always nice to reconnect.

This is an outtake from our attempt at taking a photo for our Christmas cards. Unfortunately, they are either fuzzy, or at least two people have their eyes closed in each photo. I love this photo of Jake and Owen, however. Wanted to share.

Thanksgiving dinner was 'delish'. Jake started us off with a beautiful grace. Uncle Greg and Grandma joined us and we even managed to snag Will and Owen to the table for a few minutes before taking off again.

And then there was snow. I may have already mentioned that once or twice. Can you say overkill?

The Wiggles concert was probably one of the highlights of the year, particularly for Will. The cost of these concerts hurt our pocketbooks so bad, but Jonathan surprised me with his comments, saying "this is like Christmas for the twins. It's worth every penny." By the smile on Will's face in the top picture, I have to agree.

This afternoon we went to the Corn Maze, just outside of the city. (What do you think of their sign? Cracked me up). I think we were all feeling a little homesick for our Pumpkin Farm back in Ontario and we hoped that this would give us an alternative for a new fall tradition. It was no Knox Farm, but the kids seemed to have a lot of fun. It just felt so normal. We've gone through years of dealing with Will's disruptive behaviour, but since the summer he continues to amaze us with his calm. He doesn't bolt, he listens to instructions and he enjoys the moment. Jake shows us over and over again that he is an awesome big brother. And Owen even interacted with some kids at the playground (and ate some dirt). It truly was a great afternoon.

I love it when people post pictures like these. It allows you to get a feeling for the people behind the blog. I hate the anonymity sometimes!

Wow Stacey, I agree with Jon that smile is priceless, and it was worth every penny. Love Owen's haircut, Did Will get one too? Love seeing Melanie visiting. :)

Looks like a great week. The Wiggles would be a big hit in our world too.

That smile at the Wiggles concert would make it all worthwhile!

The pumpkin farm trip was a great time too. (but the dirt eating not so much)
