Black Friday

Image
The day after Thanksgiving, we went to visit Papa Norm and Grandma Jane. Gram made another Thanksgiving dinner just for us! Thanks Gram! It was delicious! 
Pippa thought the dinner was delicious too. Here she is licking gravy off Nathan's shirt. Can you see her blurry pink tongue? 

She was sad there was no gravy on Elizabeth. Elizabeth didn't eat gravy. 
We watched the very sad Apple Cup and it was horrible! 

This year, we decided to do a turkey trot around the driveway. Nathan and Elizabeth made turkey hats for everyone. Everyone got a hat with different colored turkey feathers. 

Here is everyone but Gram and Pippa before the race started. Pippa was running around warming up. Gram was rounding up coats. 


Nathan and Pippa did some warming up too. Pippa would not keep her turkey feather collar on. 

And they're off! As you can see, Nathan is in the lead. Papa is a close second. Pippa is running third.   Jeremy, Elizabeth and Laura make up the middle of the pack. Gram was at…

Thanksgiving at Grandma's

Image
We headed up to Grandma Pam's for Thanksgiving. It was a COLD but sunny day. 
Here's everyone right before eating Thanksgiving dinner. Well, everyone except Grandma Pam! 

Part of Thanksgiving was constructing a porch! Nathan helped carry some boards. 

Here is everyone stacking wood. 

Jeremy did some cutting. 

Elizabeth and her Grandmas. 

Attacking Uncle Brian. 

Uncle Brian made Elizabeth and Nathan walk on the ceiling. 

Grandma Pam and her grandkids. 

Elizabeth had fun wiping snow off everything she could find! 

Running to see if the pond is frozen over. 

The pond was mostly frozen over so they could walk around on it. 
Sliding rocks across the pond. 




Brushing snow off the ice to look at the frozen water underneath. She thought it was neat that there were a lot of bubbles. 


Sliding around on the ice. 

Sliding on the ice! 

First Snow

Image
We woke up to a little bit of snow today.  The kids have no school this week anyway so it's a play day. It's conference week. Conferences are all day Monday, Tuesday, and then half of the day Wednesday. Since there was no school, they spent all morning playing outside in the snow. 









Living Room Dances

Image
Jeremy and the kids listened to music from the Nutcracker and danced around the living room. 




A Flower Headband

Image
Lately, Elizabeth has been wearing headbands with flowers. This is what she wore to school one day last week. 

Flowers were Blooming

Image
My Snowball bushes are very confused. They just started blooming a few days ago. They're not supposed to bloom until spring! Since they're blooming now, I guess that means they won't bloom again in spring? 

Update: I took these pictures 2 days ago. Last night, it froze, so I doubt they'll be doing well now!

Neighborhood Playdate

Image
We had a neighborhood playdate after school today. It was cold! 
Elizabeth and Charlotte colored their hands with chalk. 

Nathan showed the other kids how to use his bow and arrow. He made his own arrows out of sticks he's found. He sharpens them up. They fly really well! It was really creative of him. 

The most popular event was digging holes. Everyone wanted a shovel and they dug holes for like an hour. Exciting times around here! 

Elizabeth and Charlotte made cakes out of mud. They found old cherry tomatoes on the ground and were picking them to use as "cherries."
