On to the month of November!
It was a busy month.
Looking back now I can see why
I was so tired by the end.
The month started with Luke and Nora presenting their Texas History
presentation in class.
They did a really nice job.
Then we headed to the great north for Thanksgiving.
We stopped at House on the Rock on the way.
At this point in the loooonnnggg car ride we were about to lose our minds.
The kids were at the perfect age for all it's interesting weirdness.
They thought it was awesome!
Then we continued north to the frozen Tundra
of Green Bay
where we met our days old niece Zoey.
She is such a treasure and
we were overjoyed for Mark and Jenny.
Then it was time for some snow
|Some special time with Great Grandma.|
Then we headed south to my parents.
The kids had lots of fun with their cousins.
|A bit more sledding!|
One of our favorite stops on the trip
was to see the Dancing Horse Show in
Matt and Luke went with some friends
to the Badger game.
So the girls and Drew went to the show.
It was a great quality show and
the kids loved it.
There was incredible talent and artistry.
Since the girls have some serious horse fever it was the perfect outing.
Wisconsin friends if you are looking for a fun afternoon I would recommend it.
We celebrated Christmas early
with my parents.
My mom made the kids each
Packer blankets with their names on them.
Then we continued southward
to see our Texas friends who moved to Chicago. We miss them so terribly and the kids had a wonderful time visiting.
We literally unloaded the car and headed to a Grinch Party.
Angel and Russ throw the best parties!
The girls dressed up as Who's from Whoville!
In the interest of full disclosure we
had one child go to the Emergency Room,
got a flat tire in Joplin and
had one child throw up everywhere in the car.
It was a wonderful trip and
we got to see so many people that
Our kids are great travelers and
they all love to travel...like their momma!
