Christmas time

December 12, 2008

We pulled the tree out, Will put it up and the kids decorated it all by themselves.  It was so cute to see them arranging them on the tree in order.  Here’s Isaac watching out for the bus, waiting by Lily and James so they can all three put up the candy canes I’d bought earlier that day.

James’ acting debut!

So, we get notice that there’s going to be a kindergarten Thanksgiving play one afternoon.  We show up right on time and realize we should have camped out and that I should have brought a telephoto lens.  Here’s Isaac anxiously awaiting James’ entrance.

What felt like days but was probably more like hours…James’ class has it’s turn

Somewhere along the way, the little monster throws a fit…


Then he runs and hides behind a table…


Wait, let’s not forget who’s day this is.  Our little Indian Child!

Turkey Decorators


James brought home a Thanksgiving family assignment.  The family was to get creative and  decorate a turkey.  The kiddos gathered around and did this together.  I was very proud that no one got hurt.


Halloween, just another crazy day!

I bought this spider web at Target last year for like fifty cents a bag.  Lily and James helped me decorate after school right before the early trick or treaters started.


Our warped sense of humor.  The kids got a kick out of it!


James, Spiderman for like the fourth year in a row, Isaac, “bone-man” and Lily my spider princess.

Our first victim of the night!

trick or treating

It was a very long and eventful night.  Will stayed home and handed out the candy while the kids and I roamed the neighborhood.

James wishes we could have Halloween every Tuesday….Christmas every Wednesday, and Valentine’s day every Friday.


My little man has homework!

I was so tickled when James came home with his first homework assignment.  He was so cute!

Flying webkins!

Do I really want to know what two of my monsters are up to when I’m not around?  Well, Lily brought me her camera the other day to clear her memory card.  I saw the usual, a ton of pictures of Ginger and her brothers, then I came across this video…
