Paige and Audrey: Princess and Pony

A few weeks ago, Liz’s mom got a hold of a little play pony. It’s actually really sturdy, and designed for someone to sit upon. Liz gave it a test run. After the Halloween festivities were over, Audrey also decided it was her turn to take a ride. Throughout the evening, we had Disney’s The Sleeping Beauty playing in the…

Halloween in Frankfort

So I got to wear my robot costume a bit more by heading down to celebrate Halloween in Frankfort. Paige, as a princess. I love how Mario and Princess Peach are in the background. Tricia holding Sebastian, and Paige. I didn’t get a ton of photos, as my costume made it difficult to take photos. I snapped a few while…

Cabinet Work in Frankfort

Liz and I spent the day in Frankfort today. She was heading down there to meet up with her mom (the two of them are working on a sew-along winter coat project). I tagged along to just hang out for the day. Bob started on a project restoring an old cabinet. The back of the thing was in several panels,…

Dinner at Cooper’s Hawk

On Sunday, we had plans to go visit Liz’s folks down in Frankfort. This weekend was the annual Frankfort Fall Festival, and Liz and I were wanting to get there early in the day (the parade begins at noon, and a lot of the main streets get closed as a result). After talking a bit more about our day, Liz…

For a long time now I’ve talked with Bob about woodworking, and at several turns he extended an offer for me to help him do work on the house. I finally made it a point to set up a time, and decided to spend…

Blowing Bubbles with Paige

After the funeral, several folks went back to Liz’s parents’ house in Frankfort. We all whiled away the afternoon there, hanging out and generally just being in one another’s company. At one point, Julie broke out some bubbles and went out on the porch with Paige and Audrey. The light in these photos are absolutely spot-on with how I feel…

Remembering Janice Denler

Last week Liz’s grandmother, Janice Denler, passed away. Her health had been declining over the past several months, and as a result her passing did not happen suddenly. She was in hospice care towards the end, and a lot of her family was able to stop by and visit, before she left. This is a photo of us with Janice,…

Thanksgiving in Frankfort

I didn’t get a lot of shots of all the fantastic food we had, but this is a pic I snapped prior to the big meal getting underway. We hung out in Frankfort with Tricia and Darryl, Paige and Audrey, Katie and Dan, Cameron and Savannah. Lots and lots of food, some fun board games, and a nice night in…

Thanksgiving in Frankfort, IL

The dinner table, early in the afternoon. The Thanksgiving meal – complete with turkey, gravy, dressing, green beans, potato pie, cranberry sauce, escarole salad and pumpkin soup. Delicious stuff, and a pumpkin pie with coffee followed later in the evening. After dinner, we spent most of our time in the living room, relaxing and… digesting our meal. Earlier in the…
