Some random pics of our last week

Miss Grace ready for school, dressed as a scarecrow.
Some of the scarecrows getting ready to eat at their Kindergarten 'Harvestfest.'

Thanksgiving Day at Grandma and Grandpa's house in Illinois...playing with their 12 year old cousin Matthew(who is extremely patient and great fun to play with!)

Me and my BFF, my sister Betsy. We are 1 year apart in age.

Superman and WonderWoman playing with their space guns, or as Will calls them "Buzz Lightyear guns."

Miss Grace modeling her beautiful new pink coat and hat on the way to church this morning.

Well we've had a crazy busy week like most folks have lately. On Tuesday, Grace's school had a Harvest Fest to celebrate Thanksgiving. I was fortunate to be able to come to school and help the class put on makeup and straw(made of yarn) to become scarecrows for the day. The kids made most of the food and learned about Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving Day the 5 of us drove down to my parent's house in northern Illinois and spent the day with Grandma and Grandpa, my 2 brothers and brother-in-law, my sister and 12 year old nephew. William and Grace had a blast with their cousin Matthew. Will's 3rd birthday is Christmas Day, so since we had the entire family together we had a family party for him and celebrated his special day a little early. We'll be celebrating his bday on Christmas too!

I didn't know Will was born on Christmas day! I had a friend who had a birthday on Christmas day so she always had her (friend) party on June 25th, her half birthday!

And, love, love, love Miss Grace's pink coat! How cute.

You and your sister are so similar in looks. One year apart. That is amazing. Your parents really got to it didn't they?!!

And, I really like your spectacles!
Did I tell you I ordered mine?

See ya Wednesday!
