Christmas is Coming

Rearranging yesterday's setup.

Making some more sun-dried tomatoes.

Such a little climber!

Duplo guns.

The kids wanted to help melt the wax for the seal on our Christmas cards.

Christmas Pictures

Busy building the Christmas Legos.

I wanted to send out some Christmas Cards. I wanted to head up to Greystone Mansion to get some pictures of the kids. Then both of the boys had breakdowns and I couldn't even get them dressed. Evan was hysterical screaming because he wanted to wear a cowboy costume. James was on the verge of missing his nap and going to pieces. Steve looked at me and said, "I don't think were going anywhere anytime soon." So true. In real life we went into the backyard and got what we could.

There is always one who doesn't want to cooperate! 

These boys have been known to destroy their shoes because they are so wild and rough. We have found that leather sperry's hold up wonderful; good enough to last through more than one child. .  

It really feels impossible to get all three of them to smile at the same time.

Poor James isn't having it anymore!

I am sure Grandam Corbett would love this on her card. 

This one is going on the Christmas card. What kids are really like in real life.

Trip to the American Girl Store

Though we don't really go out to the store for the Black Friday sales we told Hailey we'd take her to the American Girl Store.  She brought along her money she earned from extra chores.  Everything she wanted to buy wasn't on sale and she was on the verge of tears.  She ended up buying some craft books for $1 each, so she was happy by the end.

We picked up some outfits and books for Christmas and holidays next year. A lot of things were sold out quite quickly and it's nice to get a good deal on items.  

Hailey was excited to come home and start making crafts.

Thanksgiving day

We brined a turkey that was so delicious.

Must sleep before eating.

Roses in Bloom

My roses are loving this warm weather.

The biggest threat to these roses is James! He loves to pull all the petals off.

James likes to look out the window and wait for Steve to get home.

When you put your boots on by yourself.

Finally Steve arrived home.
