Uncle Mac and Aunt Caitlin came out to visit it us for the whole week of Thanksgiving.  We had a wonderful visit full of laughter, food, and of course Settles of Catan.  We also did a little Christmas shopping too!  The kids really enjoyed their dog, Gus Gus.  He was a super sweet little man with extra special manners and was also a well behaved vacuum.  He practically went every where with us.  Thank you for visiting us!!

Thanksgiving Celebration

We have a wonderful family who has been mentoring us in our homeschooling adventure.  We often get together for play dates and learning time for the kids and me.  We had a wonderful time reading the Thanksgiving Story, having Thanksgiving snack food, and making Thanksgiving hats.  Thank you Mrs. H!!

Turkey Craft

The kids love to stick stickers everywhere.   I found these cute little turkeys at Joann for a dollar for 8 of them.  They are little foam cutouts with stickers to make them.  Perfect for craft time!

Happy 3rd Birthday, Rachel!!!

Rachel turned 3 today!  What a joy she brings to our life!  She is outgoing and has a very caring personality.  She loves being with her siblings and hates to be without them.  Rachel also has a very big love for DUCKS!  For her birthday she asked for ducky sheets, ducky jacket, ducky boots and anything else ducky!  She loves ducks so much she sleeps with 6 rubber ducks lined up next to her at night. 

Uncle Jeff and Aunt Tiffini

Notice the rubber duckies, these are the ones she sleeps with.
