The kids have set up camp on this rainy day and are hunting middle ages style with homemade spears and bows and arrows.  They make a point to use every part of their animals.

Our egg comparison:  on the left, a cheap, store-bought egg;  in the middle, an Egglands best organic store-bought egg;  and, on the right, an egg from our backyard chickens.  Unfortunately, Jason ate the guinea fowl egg yesterday.  That one had as even darker yolk.  It's hard to see in the picture, but the left and middle egg's whites are also substantially more cloudy.

Open skate at the Berkley ice rink with our cousins.  Aunt Nicole and Jason, above.  Below, Sophie and Benny were skating by them selves, and Jack following with Aunt Nicole close behind!

The Sanborn family skating.
We went to Gleaners for their Empty Bowls project.  The kids and their friends and cousins all got to make two bowls.  One the kids get to keep and the other isauctioned off for the Empty Bowls fundraiser.
The kids had lots of fun working with the clay and painting their bowls.
Here's their finished products.

Where jack-o-lanterns go to die.
Jason decided to make a family tree.  It turned out so nice, I framed it.  Then I decorated around it with Thanksgiving decor.
