Park- And Playing

Date of occurrence:
November 26, 2016.

It does not happen too often that we have most of our grandchildren together.

This time we did and aunt A. took the opportunity to take the bigger ones to the park.

They played their little hearts out and had great fun.

And it shows!:-)

A Quiet Thanksgiving

Date of occurrence:
November 24, 2016.

Leo and Emmaly came down for Thanksgiving and we had a good dinner planned.

Unfortunately, things don't always go as planned and a stomach bug threw a wrench in the works.

All of them were affected and afflicted with it.

We sure didn't want to catch that virus and dinner was canceled.

Mom still managed to take a photo of the bunch and send it to us.

That was sweet and we were so grateful for it.

A few days later the virus had subsided and we got to see the kids.

Emmaly clearly had been thinking about us and drew pictures for the both of us.

She was excited to hand them to us. We were excited to receive them and that confirmed the following fact.

Each day presents us with something to give thanks for!

Sweet Dreams

Date of occurrence:
November 22, 2016.

Aww, isn't that adorable?!

Daley doesn't only seem to like his new crib, he is comfortable in it as well.

Our little sleepy head is as snug as a bug in a rug.

Nite, nite, little buddy.

May your dreams be as sweet as you!

The Awards

Date of occurrence:
November 18, 2016.

Kc had an overnighter on the battle ship last Saturday and came down with strep throat. Oh dear, he has his scout awards coming up and we hope he will be well enough to go.

After a few days of antibiotics he is starting to recover.

Although he is not yet entirely up to snuff, he is able to attend and receive his scout awards, badges, and pins.

He is tired, but happy when we return home and as proud as a peacock of all his achievements.

And so are we!

Chap Lip

Date of occurrence:
November 16, 2016.

Bell and Kc come back from church and, accompanied by aunt A., Bell visits with us for a few minutes before her aunt takes her back to Mom.

All Bell wants is to play with the doll house and before we are aware of it, she already carried it into the living room and is playing her little heart out.

Right before they are about to leave I glance over at Bell and see she is using the chap stick Emmaly had left in the doll house.

Me: "Bell, what are you doing?"
Bell: "Putting on chap lip."
Me: "Ah, chap stick, huh?"
Bell: "Yeah, chap lip."

She doesn't understand why we laugh. That's okay.

One day she will. Grin.

Book Report

Date of occurrence:
November 16, 2016.

Kc's class was given an assignment last week; they had to read a book of their choice and turn a small pumpkin into one of the book's characters.

Kc decided to read 'Miss Laney is Zany' and did a good job of answering all the questions for his book report. He would have to do a presentation as well and so we practiced a few times.

Then it was on to the fun stuff.

He is not very handy when it comes to creativity.

He may come up with some ideas, but he has no clue how to execute them and therefore I helped him out a little.

I gave him some tips, told him where and how to glue it on the pumpkin, and Miss Laney took shape pretty quick.

The next day she went off to school and the wait began. We were anxious to find out how his presentation went and what grade he received.

The wait is finally over. He informed us he did his book report and presentation today and all went well.

It must have. He got an A- for it!

Fall Fest

Date of occurrence:
November 10, 2016.

It is Fall Fest at school and of course I will accompany our little man while he partakes in all the festive activities.

He first checks out all the fun stuff inside and then heads on out to see what all is there.

He is particularly drawn to the fishing booth and tries his hand at catching prizes over and over again.

He caught some vouchers for free gold fish at the local pet store and a gift card for an ice cream.

He slides, gets his face painted, throws rings, and dances until it is time to go back to class.

We both had a great time and as far as the free gold fish go, he didn't get them. He gave the cards back to the booth, because they ran out of prizes.

How sweet!:-)

Thumbs Up

Date of occurrence:
November 5, 2016.

Boy looka here, we got a mechanic in the family!

I didn't know they made mechanic suits in Levi's size.

But.... you can't start early enough, because practice makes perfect.

And what does Levi think about all this?

Yup, thumbs up!

Ghostly Encounters

Date of occurrence:
November 3, 2016.

As I wake up our little man, the first thing out of his mouth is: "I had the scariest dream ever."

I have to know of course, and he tells me about his nightmare.

Kc: "There was this ghost lady and she wanted to kill me. She came at me with a knife and then she suddenly stopped. We went to a restaurant for some food and I told her I didn't believe in ghosts, because they don't exist. She said they did.

I invited her over to my house and when we got there, a ghost was standing in the door. He wouldn't let me in and tried to kill me."

Me: "What happened?"
Kc: "You woke me up."
Me: "Wow. You sure had some ghostly encounters last night, huh?"
Kc: "Yeah!"

As we go through our morning routine, I wonder what prompted him to dream about ghosts. I don't have to wait very long. About 15 minutes later he asks: "Oh. BTW, did I tell y'all I saw the new Ghost Buster movie with Mama last weekend?"

Nope, he hadn't told us that, but it explains a lot.

He must have gone to sleep with the movie on his mind!

Date of occurrence:
October 31, 2016.

It is Halloween and Kc had planned on dressing up as a character from minecraft this year.

Unfortunately, that didn't work out, but that presented no problem. He chose to be a Skylander instead and is happy with his outfit.

Lily turns into a little witch and Bell transforms into a mermaid.

The weather is not cooperating. The rain is coming down pretty good and only Bell and Kc go trick or treating.

They have a good time and make out like bandits.

As far as our little mermaid goes; yes, she could walk! Grin.
