My former coworker and friend Katie got in touch a few weeks ago, saying it had been far too long since we had seen each other. That's true - last time I saw her, she was pregnant and she now has a two month old son, Nathan. We get along with her and Johan quite well, so it was time to remedy that fact. She invited us over to watch the Vikings/Bears game today and enjoy some food.
She outdid herself and made some really excellent chicken tostadas:

I made a new friend in Katie & Johan's dog, Lily. I think she has been feeling neglected now that there are two children who are clearly way more important than her:

In other football news, it would appear that the pumpkin heads continue to have a record-breaking successful season.
Once considered college football's biggest losers, Macalester might just be the best story in sports right now
What that article does not say is that Macalester went on to beat Illinois College yesterday in what must have been an exciting game to claim the Midwest Conference title and advance to the NCAA Division III playoffs for the first time in 67 years. They will face defending national champions UW-Whitewater next Saturday - a full bracket is available here. Here's hoping that the Cinderella story will continue.
Congrats, all, on making it past the halfway point of our blogging adventure! I know I'm excited. Although really, I won't ever run out of photos of the cats to share:
