Thanksgiving at School

Today the girls celebrated Thanksgiving at school. We brought in a vegetable and we shared a turkey lunch with Aly's class. They sang us a couple of songs and then we ate turkey dinner.

We headed home after lunch and when I told them it was rest time, this was their idea of resting:Somehow I don't think I really fell for that one.
We are excited for Ryan to come home tomorrow. He called tonight while we were eating dinner and that was a special treat for the girls.

Holiday Pictures Gone Bad......

Hello Devil Children - apparently today was not the day to do the holiday shoot. We put the girls in their holiday dresses and I was trying to get pictures for our annual holiday calendar.

The first picture is Aly with the ornaments as horns - which is quite telling of our afternoon. I think that I shot over 100 pictures and maybe got 2 or 3 that I can use.

There was always someone not looking.......

or someone that makes silly faces........

or someone crawling away....

or someone telling me that they were done with the holiday shoot

Check out our playroom!

Hard to believe that the first room done in the house is the playroom!

Our curtains arrived today - an amazing woman made them for me here in PA. We put them up this morning and I am so excited.

The girls have been really enjoying this room - which has been nice. The weather here was 70 today so we spent most of the morning outside getting the garage settled and riding our bikes.

We took a break from unpacking this afternoon to make our house a little messier!

We made some Thanksgiving turkeys. We painted, and traced and used markers - it was glorious. I made the girls strip while we painted since I could only find permanent brown paint.

On the home front, Ryan left last night for Hong Kong - he did arrive safely - we have exchanged e-mails and he is adjusting to the time change.

We are still working on the unpacking we made it through a ton of clothes and the upstairs is looking a little more settled.

It is my birthday........I can wear what I want!

We moved....and we got sick. Well Brianna got sick, croup and a double ear infection. So we had a low key birthday. We made cookies, and we finally got to bring them to school today.

We are slowly getting settled. Here are a few glimpses of our new playroom. We got Brianna a kitchen for her birthday and she has been cooking away ever since.

Check out these she going to have hair like mom or what??

Happy Halloween

Things are busy here, we had a great Halloween with our friends the MacGregors! Their neighborhood was packed with kids and despite the rain we managed to hit about 10 or so houses.

We are getting ready to move on Thursday, so many people have commented that we were in temporary housing for such a short period. Man - it has not felt that short to us, and we are SUPER excited to get into our new digs.

The girls start gymnastics tonight. They are so excited about it. Hopefully I will get some pictures up before the move.
