We spent Thanksgiving in Apple Valley with the Hubbards. I made pie crusts with Mom Hubbard and was quite good at it! Surprised? I was! They turned out well!
The boys made turkey sugar cookies and frosted them and Cameron took a special interest in all the food preparations and peeled sweet potatoes. We took a few sides and pies over to cousin Brian's house and met up with family and had a lovely time! We have lots to be thankful for!
Our yearly Thanksgiving poster is in full swing. This year has lots of treasures on it: friends, family, shelter, and warm blankets. Of course, it's never complete without things like legs, fridge and other items that make you go hmmm...... It's always a great project as we prepare our Christmas lists, focusing on what we want instead of what we already have. I love my family!
I had the kindergarten thru 2nd grade sing at the Friday flag ceremony last week. Ashton chose not to be a part of the choir this year which I supported but I think he'll be back in the spring. Derrik was on hand to run sound for me and I had Cameron play bells on "Over the river and through the woods." Derrik took a few photos of me in full director mode. :)
Derrik, Cameron, Ashton and I attended the church fall festival ALL in costume - a first! Derrik dressed as a soccer referee, I was Dorothy, Cameron was Jango Fett, Ashton as Spiderman. We had a lot of fun trunk-or-treating and the Swarm band did a few songs for the kids. I didn't get as many pictures as I'd like, but you get the idea.
Ethan with his "Steve" head and pickaxe because the character builds things
It was a little creepy!
Ethan went trick or treating with his friends and dressed as a character from his favorite game, Minecraft. You'll be proud to know we made the costume ourselves out of cardboard and printouts. I felt very crafty. :) His friend, Austin bought his online so I'm proud of us for saving some money. Happy Halloween everyone!
