Just a little more serious...

Happy post Thanksgiving from a slightly more serious gang ;)

I say slightly- because we're back to our school routine-- with the exception that the children know there are only 25 days left-- and they know there really is NO seriousness to be had as they belt out Jingle (or jinger as Elizabeth tells us) Bells for the 100th time. Who taught them how to read a calendar anyway?? Should've known better... sometimes ignorance can be bliss :)... along with blissful days from the past of setting the clock ahead an hour (or 2) because it's dark outside and telling them it's bed time... not that I would do that.... just typing out loud :) Silly person who taught them to tell time....

Hope your week is going great!!!

Giving thanks~

Yes-- we want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.
Yes, we are thankful for SO much. ~More than we EVER deserve!

But this is why I'm VERY thankful that in less than 7 hours it is bedtime for little children :)
I don't know what it is about the Holiday Season, but it seems to turn on a button that points to FULL-FORCE craziness in children-- Not all the time, but today has just been one of those days in particular--

can you tell??

Happy Thanksgiving

Today we made our Thanksgiving 'tree'- the kids came up with quite a few 'leaves' telling what they were thankful for~
Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!~

pretty neat

For all you regular bloggers who add really neat pictures (and even those who don't) while chronicling your day-to-day events-- check out this link from the Cutest Blog on the Block that will make your blog into a book~ for a preview, just enter your blog's url and flip through the pages of your book.

This is PERFECT for those who don't use photo albums anymore, (thanks to our digital world) and might be too lazy busy prioritizing other parental duties :)

loving the kind fall weather~

Just a teeny, tiny update~
Yes-- we're still going strong here-- the fall weather has been quite kind and the siding is done on the back of the house (YAY!). The men are still going strong out-doors~
We've celebrated 2 more birthdays (yes, almost a month ago-- I'm really behind on updates!)
Bring on the Holiday festivities~
Tons of pictures coming soon!
