In loving memory of...

A dear wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother

Pauline Chappell


Thanksgiving Day was at my parents house with family and friends. There was 41 of us to enjoy all the turkey. After our big meal we had a game of tag football with our extended family and the kids played soccer. It was great to be with everyone again.

Family and fun!

We enjoyed our week in Ga. being with family. Lauren had the ladies and kids over for lunch on Tuesday. Then the adults all went out to supper at a Thia restaurant for supper while the kids stayed on home with babysitters. The cousins all love to be together!

American Girl and Hockey

Papa and Nanny got all the girls American Girl dolls or things for their dolls and then Nanny took the girls and their dolls for lunch at the American girl Bistro. The girls were all excited to shop and lunch with their dolls. I think the Big girls had fun also!!! The guys went to the Atlanta Thrashers game. They had supper at the Varsity! :) And then off to a very exciting hockey game!

North Country....

This past weekend we went up North with the Howes. We love to go and always wish we could stay one more day. We meet up with the Howes, an hour out of camp, for supper.
Then we all headed into camp and we were all happy to see some snow. There was a little on the top of the hill but down in town there really wasn't any snow. We hung out, played games, and ate. The Howes are pros at crocano (sp?)! We then went riding around to see all the camps of people we know up there, rock skipping, and moose hunting. We saw two moose right off. The first was right on the road and just stood by the car and then further down the road we saw a HUGE moose. I think it was a bull moose. The biggest moose I have ever seen and I would say that it would be one of the biggest moose in the North country. Really exciting!!!! Then it was off to supper at Happy Corner and back to to camp for more games. Sunday we went down to meeting and out for lunch together. A wonderful spot that we plan to visit again. Then it was time to head home. A fun weekend and we hope to go back soon!

You Know Your States

You got 7/10 correct.

You've got a pretty good handle on US geography.
There's a good chance you've visited at least a dozen of the fifty states.

Trick or Treating....

We got together with some of the "little" kids around here and went trick or treating. The kids had alot of fun being together and getting LOTS and LOTS of candy. After that we went over to the Whites for the haunted house. It was awesome and the "BIG" kids did a great job!
