Here are a few happenings.. Our kids love costumes!
The other day, after Austin came home from school, I found him outside helping our elderly neighbor rake her leaves. He is such a sweet boy! He even opened my door for me after church today. He is getting to be such a gentleman.
He was getting so many layers that he couldn't put them on himself anymore and the other kids started putting them on for him. All of us were laughing so hard, I was crying! He reminded me of the scenes from Christmas Story when the mom layers out the little brother to go to school. "I can't put my arms down!" and "He just lay there like a slug, it was his only defense."
I suppose we have a house full of sillies. Talia ha decided that she loves wearing this little fabric house (that I have had since I was a little girl) as a hat. I think she looks adorable!
We did some fun Thanksgiving activities for Lords and Ladies. Here we are learning about Sourdough recipes.
Isabelle made me about a dozen picture. She had instructions on activities to do with some of them. One was a cartoon that would move when I flipped the page back and forth. She also had a butterfly all in pieces. I was suppose to color them and put the pieces together myself. She is so creative!
After that, Isabelle was giving me candy and money, even Robert gave me some of his candy. Now, I don't really need all of this candy, but seeing their generosity was the biggest present of all to me.
As I was thinking about turning 35 this year, I decided I am not sad about my age. I love that I have been married for almost 13 years, I love that Robert is 10 and Isabelle is 7. I love where I am in my life and wouldn't have it any other way. Yay for today!
