BDAYBASHES

Three of the four members of our family had birthdays recently, so we’ve now got a 4-year-old, 7-year-old and a 31-year-old.

Isn’t fall the best?

We had some super special brunch visitors from Nebraska over the Thanksgiving weekend!

Henry is apparently a phone guy. He took two long birthday phone calls: his aunt Katy his special day, and Grandma Penny on Charlie’s birthday.

We celebrated a huge Thanksgiving with what must have been nearly every Novak in Minnesota. 54 people! It was great. Thanks to Aunt Jane for hosting in her party room and pool.

There was even a kids’ room with games, toys and prizes

Sorry if the blog’s been more infrequent lately, but I’ll try to get more consistent now that my online class is over.
