a great time!!!

We had a great weekend!! My brother was up from Arkansas so this meant our entire "Borg" family was together for the first time in a long time! It was great, but boy was it wild :-) There are eight big and little grandkids who have a great time together! Their ages range from 22 years to 16 months - so there is a nice range of activities that go on!! A majority of the energy ranges from 16 months to 6 years!! It was so much fun! And, lucky for us we will all be together again at Christmas!

On Friday Charli and I made Christmas cookies with Amanda and Dillon and I think everyone had fun! I think we ended the day with over 300 cookies that we split! So for any of you who are lucky enough to spend the holidays with us you can expect to see some of the following on our cookies plates....chocolate covered ritz peanut butter cracker sandwiches, peanut putter balls, chocolate covered peanut clusters, spritz cookies, sugar cookies, and chocolate covered pretzel sticks!!! And, believe it or not - but we didn't sneak any...hard to believe!! Charli and Dillon did all the decorating of the cookies with Amanda doing the initial frosting - so they are very special cookies!!

On Saturday we spent the afternoon at the farm before going to a benefit for a little guy in Columbus. Where, I am happy to announce that Chad actually won something!! He got a silver Ipod shuffle! I don't think he has every really won anything before - so this was a pretty big deal :-)

We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, that left your heart full of things to be grateful for.
