Hunter's preschool went to a local chuch and sang lots of cute Christmas songs for them. It was the sweetest thing. Hunter then helped deliver the handmade ornaments the kids made. Hunter has such a big heart. The ladies just loved on him. When I hugged him to tell him I was proud of him, he smelled like 'old lady perfume'....don't you love that! Well done Hunter!
Hunter new love is PUZZLES!!! This puzzle he has probably put together about 25 times so far in the last few weeks. He loves it! Sometimes he puts it together and then wrecks it and puts it together again. It is a Scooby-Doo 100 piece one! I love that Hunter loves puzzles....we just tried a new one yesterday. He is really good at finding shapes and matching them up! YAY Hunter! Great job buddy! I know what you are getting for Christmas!
This year for Thanksgiving was very different from all the rest! Chris was to come home, but plans changed somewhat last minute and he would not be coming home until the Saturday after Thanksgiving! Ethan has been talking about going hunting with my dad for the past YEAR (since last Thanksgiving) and so Dad took him. He got a 2 pointer!!!! Those two did not come home until right before we sat down to eat! The sister missionaries from our church also came over...they did not have a place to eat and so naturally, I invited them over! We had so much yummy food...all the Thanksgiving favorites! It was a great day. I did all cooking too...my first time. The hardest thing about it all is to keep everything warm with only 1 oven....next house I must have a double oven!!! I did as much prep work the day before as I could. We watched the parade in the morning! Don't you just love to see all the floats AND JMU's marching band was there and opened up for the parade, which was completely awesome! GO DUKES!!!! The kids had an enjoyable time and Ethan and Dad came back with deer meet...so we are set for meet for awhile! Although Ethan came home in the same clothes he left in, he did tell me he brushed his teeth!!!! LOL! He said it was so cold, he just dressed in layers! Here are a few pics...
Alexis had to do a project for Social Studies. She chose the Souix Indians from the Great Plains because she wanted to make a Teepee. Pap-pap helped her. We went to Salvation Army and picked up a leather purse for $0.69!!!! We cut it up as the 'buffalo hide' and it sure looked great with hot glue!!! Alexis did an AMAZING job at her paper. She loves to write and her writing is great! She wrote this entire paper with very little help from me! GO ALEXIS!!! I am so proud of you! Your teacher is also!
I had a Saturday off with my dad helping our family in watching the kids...so we decided to go swimming. There's a pool with a 'bubble' on the top to keep it warm in H'burg. The kids were so excited! We actually were there for almost 4 1/2 hours! This was Ryan's first time in the water...and I think it was a bit too cold for him....hence the sad face! So, he enjoyed hanging out with me getting a few pictures!!!!

Don't you just love this face!!! I sure do!!! I just love that Ryan has so many faces....and that he is our first baby that likes this kind of binkie...actually he's the first one to take any sort of binkie...and only when he's tired. I almost forgot to take these and so Hunter helped me decorate Ryan's sticker. Happy 3 months Ryan! We sure do love you! Ryan was getting tired...hence the upset picture at the end!
