Grandmomma's Christmas Party

I apologize because I was HORRIBLE about getting pics of everyone on Saturday. I'd love any pics you'd like to send my way! Thanks for a great party; we had lots of fun!

School Pics

Jacob's sweet teacher was thoughtful enough to take pics of each of the kids in their classroom. They got to choose where in the classroom they wanted their picture taken. And let me tell you, EVERY other kid smiled for his/her pic. But not this man!
He's smiling here--but look who is not looking! Silly buddy!
Naomi's class recently visited a real forge where they got to make tiny iron swords (very cool!).

Thanksgiving 2010

Our trip to St. Louis for Thanksgiving was so much fun! We celebrated Thanksgiving (twice), two birthdays, and had pictures made!
For part of Naomi's birthday celebrations, we went to see Tangled with Grandpa, Grandma, Abby, Maddy, Dennis, Loretta, Momma, Daddy, Naomi, Jacob, and Bethany.

Though we didn't see snow on the ground at Grandpa and Grandma's house, we went closer to downtown St. Louis on Thanksgiving for a meal at Nate's aunt's house and there was snow on the ground!

Maddy's birthday party was so much fun! The kids made crowns, got royal robes, and swords/scepters, and ate lots of yummy cake.
