Aunt Kristi and aunt Mima (Amanda) took the girls skating for the first time. They had so much fun. The girls were all nervous about it so I thought that they would just sit on the bench, but all three of them ice skated. It did not hurt that they had such fun cousins to skate with. Fiona asked me if she could quit preschool and take ice skating lessons. While they went ice skating and to McDonald's, I got my knives sharpened, had a lunch date with Evan, got my Thanksgiving shopping done at Costco and Winco, and started to clean my house. Thank you!!

The first big snow is so much fun! Fiona and Moriah spent as much of the day in the snow as they could. The snow gear sure makes a mess in the house. The furnace light went out of course on this day of lots of traffic to the outside. I thought Evan was not reachable so we made due with our little electric heater and fire place downstairs. In the evening, Evan made me learn how to light the furnace even when I thought it was getting too complicated so I am now more knowledgeable today.
Kira also turned on the jets while she was in our bathtub, but the water was too low so the water sprayed all over the bathroom. We had quite the puddle to clean up. Another lesson learned, do not put Kira in my bathtub.

Evan, Kira, and I got to see Fiona and Moriah in a costume parade at school. Then Kira the butterfly, Amanda (my best friend), and I hosted Bingo for Moriah's class. I was impressed at how well they were able to find words like ghoul and vampire. I can see why Amanda teaches. She was amazing with the kids. I love spending time with Amanda!
