Happy Thanksgiving!

We got back yesterday, from a fun beach trip with my parents and sister. We rented a house down in Galveston and had a blast fishing, collecting sea shells, riding the ferry and enjoying good food and company.












We had such a great time! When we got home I washed about 6 loads of sandy laundry and we even got started decorating for Christmas. Ready to enjoy the last few days of Thanksgiving break!

Lately

A couple of weekend's ago we had a little party for Adelaide. Talk about dragging her birthday out! With her birthday so close to Halloween, it is hard to have a party the same weekend. So we had it the weekend after.

The day before it rained all day, but it cleared up and we had a beautiful afternoon the day of the party.


Aedan's school does student lead conferences. The students each have a binder where they fill out graphs and such based on the skills they have learned. The parents come and the student walks his/her parent through the work. It was fun and so great to see Aedan so proud of his work. Afterword, we got to decorate pumpkins.


All of a sudden both kids are into arts and crafts. This is a common scene at our house now. 


 This one keeps me on my toes and is pretty hilarious. This is how she arrives at the gym or at school on a regular basis.

This past weekend, was the Fall Fair at Aedan's school. They had a helicopter the kids got to get in. It was super cool!



They also had a cool rock wall to climb. I think Aedan looks so grown up here. 


Aedan had to disguise a turkey and decided he wanted to make it Chewbacca. I think he and Jon did a pretty good job.  


Today, the kindergarten classes put on a Thanksgiving play. It was super cute!


Family pictures are done and Christmas card have been ordered. I'm looking forward to getting our Christmas decorations out next week!!

Family Time & Halloween

We got to visit with family two weekends in a row!

My sister and parents came down the weekend before Halloween. We were able to have a little get together with my grandmothers and aunt to celebrate Adelaide's birthday.








Then this past weekend Jon's mom was able to come down and help up celebrate Adelaide's birthday and Halloween. The kids loved all the attention! We had a blast dressing up this year!
