We absolutely LOVED her preschool! Her teachers were kind, she learned a ton and they did such a great job not only teaching her ABC's and 123's but bible verses and stories that she can apply in living her life. I will really miss that part of her education as she transitions into a public school system. I wonder how to explain it to her, as it was her favorite part of learning every day?
Common sense just did not work. So, when garage sale season started, I put the 2 best shoppers I know on notice... I need a motorized vehicle STAT!!!
We did not end up with the Lightning McQueen vehicle, but we have something to drive and he is Thrilled! They take their "kids" to the grocery, DisneyLand, drs. appointments, and of course to work! Good times had by all!!!

Avery picked a very boring & plain shirt today (for her) and when I asked her why she choose that one she said it was "because she NEEDS to wear her new sandals"... And so it begins......
After not doing Avery's hair exactly as she asked, she said "Oh man! Now no one is going to play with me!" Ha!
"Oh no, you never yet go, thru the snow, and thru the nose, Oh you never yet go of me" Avery's version of "You never let go of me" Ha!
I don't know which is sweeter the picture Avery drew for her pediatrician or the fact that Jake was physically pushing him off of her while he was giving her shots and screaming " DON'T YOU HURT MY VIVI!!!!!"
The kids played in dirt & gravel, "hunted coyotes" and thanked Jesus for "doing such a great job on the beautiful mountains" It was so cute!
One thing that constantly amazes me is seeing all of the little cousins playing together like they never missed a day. I think it is one of my favorite things about this age. They are old enough to remember each other and the only thing on their minds are playing like crazy. It is so cool how even extended family shares a bond with each other, even at early ages. I really look forward to seeing them all grow up together and hope that they will always be as close as they are now.
When we got home from Kentucky, Daddy had put together Jake's new bike..A "Speed" bike of course! KaChow!!!!

"Mommy, I found a treasure, its for you!"
I said " Thanks Buddy, May I have it?"
He said " First I have to send it to the White House!"
Ha! I swear I haven't talked to him about taxes..... but from the mouths of babes!!!!
(in interest of honesty, this happened in June, but I am way behind and had to break up boring monthly updates)

Jake whispers "Mommy, have you seen Sal anywhere?"
" Jake, you have to go back to bed!" I say, still sleeping.
" Mommy! Sal is missing!" he says through tears...
"I will find him buddy...."
Why was he awake @ 1:49 am looking for Sal? ( He had fallen behind the bed).
True love, I guess!

It is so hard for me to believe that my baby is 3! Every time I look in his dark blue eyes, I am reminded of how perfect God's timing is.

Mom and Aggie- our chefs Our Thankful Turkey
We had a great time at Thanksgiving this year, Aunt Aggie hosted and we spent time playing with the kids, eating, watching football, etc.. Everything the holiday is about!
The next day we went shopping, an annual tradition with the girls! Much to Mom and Julie's chagrin we decided that we should hit Edinburgh at midnight. Mom is always up for such an adventure, but had been under the weather, Julie on the other hand somehow did not inherit the shopping gene that all of the ladies of our family posses. She kept saying, "Seriously, you don't think being home at 8 am is successful? That is 8 hours of shopping! ARE YOU KIDDING?" In her defense, she wasn't feeling all that well, but nonetheless, is not a marathon shopper like the rest of us.
After finally convincing her to go, we left at 9:30, and drove to Edinburgh. We were VERY pleased with our purchases there (Julie was in the car asleep by 2:30), and then we headed to Greenwood to have breakfast, at 3:30. We were @ Kohls at 4, Walmart at 5 and Meijer by 6. We are pros! We got home around 7:30, when Julie finally woke up. She had slept thru most of the night!
It was a great night followed by great naps, and lots of giggles along the way! I love Black Friday!!
