dittmer update

I loved Tricia's Hawaii pics. We are so excited to go to Hawaii in one week! This month has been a difficult one for us. At least one of us was sick almost every day in November. The sickness coupled with the days getting shorter and colder has made for a difficult transition into winter. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and I usually love planning it all out, looking for recipes, and making all the things. This year, my rolls didn't rise, nobody ate my green salad, my pumpkin pie crust was burnt and weird. Tony's turkey was pretty good, but not as good as last year. It was just one of those years. Needless to say, I am so looking forward to family, sunshine, and the ocean. We need it.

Hope you enjoy this picture of Tony's mustache and the kids on one of the only Sundays we were all well enough to make it to Church.
