Playing in the Leaves





We had a beautiful fall. The leaves were so pretty and the weather was fairly mild. Claire loved playing in the leaves while they lasted. They're mostly gone now. Bring on Christmas!

Thanksgiving Weekend





We had a busy weekend of activities for Thanksgiving. We started with a football game that had almost more dogs than people and ended by decorating our tree with a visit to Santa in Wisconsin in the middle.

Reunion Weekend





A couple of weeks ago I attended my 20th college reunion. Since it was in Chicago, Claire got to come along for brunch on Sunday with my college roommates. We took a walk in Lincoln Park and saw ducks, turtles, and a "Tick Tock Croc", according to Claire. Not so sure I saw the crocodile, but it could happen!

Look what Claire (and Jeff) Made!



Claire and Jeff took a pottery class this fall and I wanted to share the fruits of their labor - a pumpkin with earmuffs and a turkey, aptly named, "Ham".
