Be Creating A Circus With Cousins

We were extremely grateful to see all four of the ‘big city’ cousins all in one day on Thanksgiving weekend.

One of the set of cousins love getting the costumes out and creating when we visit together. This visit brought out the laughter in all of us.

Just imagine a pint-sized announcer, a green puppy-shirt wearing cutie, a preschooler in a laundry basket, a riding clown and a climbing monkey. Add in the tire swing in our front yard and viola you have a circus.

Enjoy the show:

and a winter of decluttering, our trailer is full!  It is ready to go to the garbage dump.

Our eldest was looking in our trailer, that cost us two bottles of wine, the other day, eyeing up our Christmas tree, the old laundry sink and a few other treasures.

Suddenly, he reached in and pulled out an old tire.  He asked his dad for some rope and he was off.  With a bit of cajoling from dad, they worked together to create this:


JC, you are incredibly thoughtful and full of ideas.  Your brothers and friends have had an incredible time on our new tire swing!  CC, thanks for helping your brother and for enjoying the ride.
