A Hello Kitty Birthday!

We celebrated Eleanor's 4th birthday a little early this year so that she could have a party with her friends before the holidays. Hello Kitty was her theme of choice, and we had a lot of fun coloring Hello Kitty, making kitty ears to wear, and playing "Pin the bow on Hello Kitty"! As you can see, there were lots of smiles...enjoy!

The Mayflower

After asking lots of questions about why we celebrate Thanksgiving and watching the Charlie Brown Mayflower special on Thanksgiving night, the girls decided to create their own Mayflower theatrical production! You can imagine our surprise when we went to see what they were up to! Sophie had converted a big furniture box into their "ship" and Grandmama (a.k.a. "Squanto" :)) had outfitted everyone with the appropriate attire. They even knew their lines and had the whole thing planned out...from being sick of the voyage to finding land to learning to plant corn to the feast. Of course parents are always partial, but it was great!

A Happy Thanksgiving

We enjoyed the opportunity to get away and see friends and family for Thanksgiving this year. We had a fabulous feast and it was a beautiful day for enjoying the outdoors together! We have so much to thank God for this year, but as I was looking through these pictures to post, I was especially thankful for the two little eyes peering at me without crossing (Moses!), two beautiful little ladies full of smiles, and a Daddy/husband who faithfully leads us all. Thanking God for all of these good gifts from His hand today.

More Fall Fun!

After our trip to the Pumpkin Patch (see last post), we had two pumpkins to carve! Sophie was brave enough to scoop out her pumpkin's insides. Eleanor wasn't quite sure that it would be okay....ha. :) And tonight we had a great time at Pisgah Baptist Church's Noah's Ark Harvest Party. The girls enjoyed the games, petting zoo, bouncy house, and "cookie walk"...and even took 1st place at the costume contest! The most exciting thing to them, however, was definitely the CANDY. Mommy and Daddy will be coming up with ways to get rid of some of that for the next several days!!! We had a lot of fun, though. Hope you enjoy the pictures of their sweet smiles. :)

Pumpkin Patch 2011

Mommy and all of the kids got to go with Sophie's kindergarten class to the Pumpkin Patch today. We had perfect weather and lots of fun. Hope you enjoy these smiles as much as I did! (You'll notice our "big boy" is standing some on his own now!!!)
