Mid day I made the stuffing, Patrick prepped the turkey and the kids and I got the house ready. Dinner was a high starch one; mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, wild rice, turkey, scallop ceviche, pecan and pumpkin pie, raindow jello, cookies, cake pops...

This afternoon we took the kids out to Swampy Acres and for the first time had an "adventure" ski where we didn't go around in a circle with them (as we do on the golf course). Stuey broke trail for part of the time and we all skiied as a pack. The kids fell some, but are getting up with much greater ease. Patrick and I talked about how they are ready soon to venture to the Buskin River area where he and I ski. It is wild that the time has come for them to go on some of the harder trails with us. We think they're ready to give it a try and believe they will find the adventures of skiing around low lying trees and streams/rivers a very fun adventure.
As we took off from the car this afternoon, I hollered to Patrick, "Hey hon, this is a moment I've been waiting for from the moment I met you!"
