Great Day--
The M's and their parents arrive!

Pancakes for breakfast,

Max has learned from Maddie to build high with blocks.

Then walks around the block

and at the beach.

A gorgeously warm day

to wade in the water

and take photos.

Wise parents to bring dry clothes before we go out for pizza.

Thanksgiving at the Gerbi-McIlwain's

Best turkey we've ever had!

Mug shots from Katie.

Dinner Party

The Harrises and Gerbi-McIlwains came over for
a pre-Thanksgiving dinner last night--good talk and food

and a few naps after dinner.

Tulip's Favorite Store

Now that we're back in Barrington for a few weeks, Tulip gets to go to Petco, the place with enticing smells at nose-level.

Once in the check-out line, she gets impatient for me to maneuver her large bag of dog food to the counter

because she's so eager for the many treats the sales clerks always give her (and the extra ones I pocket for the trip home).

Winterizing Chocorua

Toby and I have slightly different ideas about winterizing...

his is to install the old storm doors,

mine is to buy a new rug in cheery colors for the dining room.

Tulip's Halloween

After someone told her she looked like a wolf,

Tulip pretends to be a rectangular pumpkin and fool over-eager hunters.

Addicted to Painting

Many new projects I'm working on---

Linda and I just talked--we agreed, we're addicted to painting.
There's never enough to paint.

The First Snow

which melted in almost 5 seconds---

but was enough to make us worried about our outside faucets freezing.

So here's Toby in the crawl space beneath the red bathroom locating the water turn-off.

We spent Sunday night at Sarah and Alan's--seeing a very nice exhibit of their sculpture and photography and enjoying time together.
