This year (2012) we dressed up, last minute, as characters from Saturday Night Live sketches. Ryan dressed up as Gene Frenkle, better known as: “more cowbell guy.” Check out this link to watch the sketch: http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/80a71ef8cb/more-cowbell Carrie dressed up as classic Peg, a Justin Timberlake character.

Our heater hasn’t seemed to be working. So instead of fixing it (we do have a call in to our furnace guy but he hasn’t bothered to stop over) Ryan designed and built us a fireplace.
We traveled to Southern Iowa for the annual Ferguson Family reunion in Tingley. The weather was warm, the food was filling and the company was great. After the reunion we took a roadtrip down memory lane and drove around exploring Gary and Connie’s old stomping grounds.
We had a few people over for dinner and we made a maple cheesecake with roasted pears for dessert. Interested in trying this? Visit Martha Stewart’s website: http://www.marthastewart.com/329044/maple-cheesecake-with-roasted-pears
We bought an end of the season bushel of tomatoes. I canned, roasted, puréed and included tomatoes in everything we ate for the week.
Ryan took me along during one of his training “flights.” I sat in the “backseat” of the flight simulator. It was amazing how real it was! I always thought that when he was going to the simulator it was just a computer screen and a joystick.
