Kickball at the Park

We met Katherine and the kids at the park for a game of kickball and to play around at the park for their "K" week activity. It was such a nice day, who would have thought that nearly December and we could be playing outside!

We had a party at DeMars on Wednesday night before Thanksgiving and did crafts with the kids. We made letters in jars for the centerpiece, pilgrim hats, and cupcake turkeys. It was a fun evening to spend with family and a yummy dinner. We were lucky and had two Thanksgiving meals with both families!

new little cousin Collin and Lyla (she looks huge next to him, he's a tiny little guy and she's not all that big herself)

The kids were fascinated with papa carving the turkey. Griffin was a little worried about where it was before it was in the oven, but he ate it nevertheless!

Happy Birthday Ava

Ava turned "4". She is growing up way too fast! We had a cousin party out at The Chocolate. We had pizza, decorated cupcakes, did glitter toes and had treats! She had a fun time being with all her cousins! Happy Birthday!

Thanks to aunt Shaley for coming and doing glitter toes for all the girls! Their toes were all so sparkly and fabulous!
