Pancakes and a grill and a cape

Sorry about getting so far behind but with Thad's passing things kinda got out of order.  Just to catch you up on Thad, we wrote many letters and emails asking that his fiance', Erica Wong, be allowed an emergency visa so that she may come to his funeral.  She has no immediate family other than Thad's family in the US so getting the visa was a little harder.  We are so lucky to have such a great group of friends.  The word spread quickly through facebook and soon there were groups behind us helping to get her here.  It's the least we could do for our friend but truly was eye opening to see how many of us pulled together.  This is what life is truly about guys!

Now to catch up!  Two weeks ago we had a pancake breakfast at our church hosted by the middle school youth.  Yep, Steven was in there cooking with the best of them.  I was assured that he did not spit in the pancakes.  This was such a great breakfast because we were in the gym and the youth brought out the trikes for the little kids to play on. Bryce had a great time riding around and he enjoyed the eating as well!

Our next endeavor of the day was to buy a new grill.  We had rusted our older one until the flames just wouldn't work.  Blake found this cute little guy at Lowes that he loved.  It is small enough for our porch and it is infrared.  I don't know the specifics but I know that my chicken tastes yummy!

Bryce was given the box and we made a clubhouse.

We also had to go to Target that day.  It was a yucky day and the Thomas boots had finally been ripped to pieces.  I do not recommend buying boots from Striderite.  We found these at Target and they are, not only, thicker rubber but much cheaper.  The Thomas boots ripped twice.  In the same area. 

And finally here is Bryce with his cape from Christmas.  My mother in law asked me what the kids wanted for Christmas and I answered a cape!  She likes to sew and I just thought this would be something that he would love.  We are now a part of the Wonder Pets.!
Hope everyone has a great weekend.  We are getting ready for a wintry mix of snizzle.(kinda a mix between snow and drizzle)  I know that north of us is going to get a pretty bad storm, so prayers to all of you!
