Thanksgiving 2014

Working on a 1,000 piece puzzle before dinner. We didn't finish it until the next day.

Waiting for the Thanksgiving dinner to start.

Friday bowling outing. Axel wore his French bowling shirt - a gift from Farmor.

Goofing off with Uncle Honus and Cousin Django.

We finished the trip with a family dinner at the Salty Sow. Axel got to catch up on some iPad time. Great trip!

End of Soccer Season

Axel had his last soccer practice of the season this weekend. His game has improved significantly this fall both in terms of skill and in understanding the game. It is a joy to watch him play.

Axel likes to wear his socks down - emulating 80's Danish soccer star Søren Lerby (and if you know who he is consider me impressed).

Axel in his pre free-kick Wayne Rooney stance - taking direction from Coach Nestor. 

Axel with a defensive clearance. 

Tense moments before the medal ceremony.

Season over - well played Axel!

Trick or Treat

Finally - the night Axel has talked about for weeks arrived.

 Family picture before heading out. Axel is ready - armed with shield and candy bucket.

Hitting up the first house on the street.

Don't wake him up!

Time to eat.....
