Rainbows, apple pie, and fruit turkey

Rainbow over the McDonnell house
We enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving in Vancouver with my sisters and Mom. Everything was delicious but my favorite thing this year was the Mom's orange rolls (not featured).

Electrical fence

We have a game in our closet called "Lightning Reactions".  It has four metal handles, each with a button.  To  play you push the button when the creepy music stops, last one to push the button gets zapped.  I hate being shocked, which is why I love the game.  Maggie however didn't even flinch the first time she lost; I had test it because I couldn't believe it.  I rank my fear of being shocked with having needles in my eye.  However, Maggie has never been afraid of being shocked and loves testing these things out.  On our walk we came across an electrical fence.  I told her if she touched it she would get shocked, of course, she touched it.

bed & breakfast log

I wish I could say I had a photo of every person that crossed over our threshold but I don't... however that is the price.  Anyway, I wanted to update the log of those who paid for their stay.

Our little family has been under the weather.  We didn't even carve pumpkins this year but we did enjoy Halloween albeit simple.  Henry was coughing up lungs but slipped into his lion costume without a fuss, compliments of Aunt Michelle.  Grandma Torgerson made Maggie's fantastic pink tutu, which was her dream. Maggie cleaned up candy from the neighborhood with Mom.  Henry and me camped out on the driveway and passed out candy.  We had a slow trickle of trick-or-treaters until 8:30, all-in-all a perfect night.
