Here are the happy happy children on Christmas Eve. During the day, Mumsie and Stan took them to see Santa. After our dinner, they went outside and played in the snow! Couldn't have been more perfect.

Piano Recital

Here are the girls today playing piano. A wild animal broke into the house and had to be removed during Alexandra's performance... so I missed her first and favorite song, but I got her last two. Other than that, the girls did GREAT! The camera I have has this autozoom and you can here it adjusting and adjusting... I need to figure out how to turn that off... Anyway, here are the cutie pies!

Last Day of School

We had a great last day of school before Winter Break. The cutie pies sang there Christmas songs in the show. They were very excited and gave me "previews" all week. Afterwards, we went to eat at Fat Daddy's with lots of friends. Then, we went and did a Christmas Craft!

Now, we're going to start gearing up for the BIG day!

The camera person is really awful. Sorry!!

Leaving Fat Daddy's....

Witch, Cat, Pirate and FUN

We had a lot of halloween fun. A big gorilla and Lathan took the kids trick-or-treating while Michelle and I managed the herds and passed out candy. We ran out again, but I think we made it to 9ish this year... It was fun, a bunch of friends stopped by and stayed - kids played, ate a lot of candy and watched TV while we all hung out. Good times. We sure do love Halloween in Munger Place.

Here is Ainsley's cute "trick!"

1st Sleepover

Exhausting!!! Those silly girls stayed up til almost 1 and set Eleanor's watch alarm for 5:30am!! Alexandra told me, "Mom, the alarm went off but they would not get up. I had to keep yelling and yelling for them to wake up. But, they finally did!" The gaggle of girls woke the rest of us up at 6:00am with their running and laughing...

The girls had a ball. Alexandra loved her "Halloween Sleepover."

Happy 8th Birthday Big Girl.

Another Injury

Ouch! Buddy fell on the playground at school... It was small, but a deep gash thingy... Poor baby. We went to the ER clinic and they glued it shut. And, they gave him a bear he named, "bear bear" for being so brave! Between the broken arms, black eyes, busted feet and every other injury that occured for all the kids - I'm hoping they make it through childhood...

Not so fun

Lexiloo got "Heelys" for her birthday. 2nd time out, she fell and broke her wrist. Ugh... This is her first time to have a broken bone. She said, "Mom, I didn't know it would be this much pain. When Ainsley had her cast, it just looked like fun." Poor baby. She'll have a splint for a week (for the swelling to go down) and then a cast for 5 weeks after that. :(

Mall Day

The other day after school we went to the mall. They got excited at the thought (we rarley go) and ran upstairs and packed purses. They dug into their piggy banks which I wasn't too thrilled about, but it is their money. But, they had a great time and got the opportunity to really notice how much things cost. Alexandra brought $7.38. Ainsley brought $6.75. Alexandra looked all over to find something to buy and kept saying, "wow, Mom that is expensive!" Finally, she found something that was $6.95 and was so excited! She went to the register and had the opportunity to learn about taxes! She had to borrow money from her sister to complete the transaction.

We had a good time walking around. I tried to get some cute pics of them but it's so hard to get all 3 of the looking at me and happy at the same time.

Here are the girls with their purses. Buddy didn't get a purse.

Halloween fun by Lexi

Halloween is sooooo fun in in the Lewis family take a look:

This is a poem that I wrote:


Tricks are orange, treats are black
this a list of all things black is it
witches, cats, spiders too
this is a list of all things blue,
eyeballs ,candy wrappers and GOO
this is a list of all things orange,
pumpkins, candy corn, fiya too
and that is my list of Halloween things for you.

As I wrote the poem I wrote fire like fiya was to make it sound halloweenier. Also we put the ghosts which is 5 ghosts that are holding hands and it looks they're doing ring-around-the-rosie.

Here's a picture

PS - Normally I type/translate their blog comments, but this blog was done entirely by Alexandra. She typed, uploaded the picture and chose the font and color. I got in trouble for pushing "publish" too early b/c she wanted to include the following pictures of our decorations that she took. Sorry lulu! :) So, here are the pictures she wanted you to see that she took.

Happy Halloween Season!

Green Line, Corney Dogs, Lights & Friends

Fair Day! We did a few things different this year. First we took the train (the new Dallas Green Line) to the fair. Lexi told me after she saw the billboard advertising of the new Green Line, "Mom. If you let us take the green line to the fair, I will clean the whole house!" Yes she did say that.... :) Here they are excited to start the adventure... Poor Anderson... This year we also decided to go during the afternoon/evening so we could catch the lights at nighttime. Usually we go the first day the first minute it opens. It was worth it, the lights were very cool - something different. Although, it was slow getting home because we were all tired.

We also went with some friends of ours! The kids had so much fun having their buddies there... They ran and played and laughed and begged for more tickets. Cute! Here are our friends cute families and us!


Bird Show!
And, belive it or not - we did NOT get asked to leave the Car Show...!?! Go Figure! :)

Love our Texas State Fair!
