Happy Thanksgiving (and anticipatory Christmas!)

While we waited for the turkey to cook, Alex and Jack were the "dry run" on a couple of crafts we will be having at our Advent Family Workshop at church on Sunday. They painted wooden Christmas trees (and glued on "ornaments" once the paint dried) and made reindeer-pots with their handprints for antlers... Great good fun for all!

The Violinist!

Trey has taken up the violin. Here he is, practicing for the Winter Concert at school: Jingle Bells and the Dreidle Song!

Princess Alex

And everywhere that Alex goes, Alex goes, Alex goes; and everywhere that Alex goes, she's sure to dress as a princess! ("everywhere" = school - every day if she could get away with it! - the park, the zoo, the Car Museum...)

Halloween Fun!

Great excitement! Halloween has FINALLY come! Alex and Jack each have gone back and forth between two constumes - Alex was a princess (isn't that inevitable?!)yesterday for a party, and today she is Michael Jackson; Jack was a knight yesterday - and today he is a dinosaur! Going door-to-door was fun - but it is perhaps more exciting to ANSWER the door and see all the other kids-in-costume and be the one who gets to give out the candy!
