Mayo and Pumpkins

05 Oct

Sounds like a really interesting sandwich. Actually, it’s about the Mayo Clinic and some pumpkin sellers. Plus some bonus coverage of Montrose Homecoming…

We went to Rochester, MN this past week to see the Vascular surgeon we’ve seen once before. Hope has an hemangioma (a malformation of veins) that we’ve been watching closely since she was born. We’ll be heading back to Mayo right after Christmas for surgery, and then a couple more times later in 2009.

Thanks to the Wickses for putting us up (and putting up with us) in Zumbrota. Michael was a great entertainer for the girls! They built a Lego zoo, and torchured the cat (I think the cat liked most of it).

Grandpa Denny grew a bunch of nice pumpkins this year, and gave them all to the grandkids. Hope, Mesa, Zoey, Riley and Ty hosted a pumkpin stand Saturday on Main Street. They sold 41 pumpkins–thanks to the girls running down the street to harass nearly everybody (with coaching fro Uncle Nick).

It was Homecoming this week in Montrose, and this year was a big deal for our family. Jenna was up for coronation (she looked beautiful, but didn’t get the crown) and cousin Craig Healy was named King. Kayla was a first grade attendant, and Grandpa Denny was chosen Booster of the Year by the senior class. Denny also starred in a hilarious skit at coronation–I have video and will try to figure out how to get it online soon! All three of our girls were in the parade–Hope and Mesa each with thier class, and Zoey was Ty’s sidekick in the Jeep. As always, more pictures on Flickr.
