Christmas, Christmas time is here....

...time for Joy (sing with the Chipmunk voices). Whit did great, not scared at all - just very curious of what he was looking at.  Anderson and Ainsley Grace brought their lists.  Alexandra made her list on my phone and then told him when she sat down.  She threw in a Chocolate Fondue fountain at the end....  Time to get wrapping!

Polar Express Day

Oh boy, my two kids were so excited for this big day Polar Express Day at school.  Jammies, Bells, Hot Chocolate and no school work!  Apparently, it's the children's and the teachers favorite day of the year! The upper school doesn't have PED, so Lexi didn't get to participate.  She was happy for her brother and sister though.

  Check out Lexi's new hairdo!  We found a new one - fun.


Anderson made a fabulous Joseph at his big Kindergarten Play.  It was so sweet and he worked on his two lines over and over and over!

I could not love this little boy anymore. Lexi and Ainsley Grace got to get out of class and watch.  Gma and Gdad came, too.  He was so excited and proud.

Mystery Solved

A lot of frustrations, a lot of chasing the dog around the neighborhood (George will NOT come to us, we are very bad trainers) and a LOT of scratching our heads on HOW was he getting out of the fence??  Stan has spent many hours trying to fortify our wrought iron gate only to look out the front door and see George strolling around the hood peeing and sniffing everything in sight.   Well, no longer mister!  We know your tricks!

Dino's and Fairy Godmother

"Ohhh, look at the Lizard, Chameleon, Dragon, Dinosaur..."  Here is Whit in our new favorite outfit - he gets lots of attention in this one.  It's too cute to take it off of him....

Ziggy with his Fat Finger... Poor pooky has so many teeth coming in it hurts him.  He looks like a squirrel.... (Don't shoot Stan!)

Alexandra had a school play called Stax of Wax.  She loooved the whole process, learning her lines, the costume, being on stage.  She did a beautiful job and did not let her nerves overcome her.  Daddy skipped class to come and Aunt Shelly and Uncle Lathan came, she was so happy.  Her Brother and Sister were very proud of her, too.

Hallows’ Eve and All Hallows

Mumsie and Grandaddy arrived on a Friday to prepare for Halloween on a Monday.  3 days to unpack the trailer of spookiness and pack it back up.   It was worth all their hard work, it was very scary and very fun for all the trick or treaters...  The photos don't quite capture all the little things they added, the Ghost flying back and forth on one side of the yard.  The witch on the other side riding her broom back and forth.  They hung black curtains on the front porch and blocked the front door.   Smoke machine...The sound system and light show that singled out our house to sound like an evil scary storm. Everyone was blown away with all they put together.  Super uber FUN.

Here is Monster Doll "Frankie Stein."

 Meet Monster Doll "Draculaura."

Don't worry, Captain America is here to save the day!

Here is the sweetest little Pumpkin that ever was.  He was so super cute.  Here was George in his Witch costume.  It lasted about 20 seconds.

Even evil witches need some brew to keep spooking people.  The grim reaper sat there quietly - then proceed to scare the crap out of almost every person that came through.  He would sit motionless, "Baaaaa, hahahahaha!!!"  Hilarious.  Seriously hilarious.

 Here are some cute trick or treaters!

The next morning, we got up bright and early to get Ainsley Grace ready for All Saints Mass.  The 2nd graders/first communicates all picked a saint to research and dress up as.  It was so precious.  Ainsley Grace chose Saint Thérèse of Lisieux also known as Little Flower of Jesus.  She made one beautiful saint.

All Saints Day (All Hallows) reminds us of all those holy men and women whom God, in His infinite mercy, sends us as torches to light our path in a dark world.  Filled with God’s love and grace, they make golden the pages of our histories with their lives and witness.  Feeling the lure of sin just as much as any of us, they turned to God and reflected His love to us.  They come in all sorts of humanity:  men and women, all nationalities, wise, simple, warriors, pacifists, miracle workers, saints whose only miracle was their life, humorous, humorless, clergy, laity, old, young, united only in their Faith and their love for the Highest Love.
