Here I am again, back with my sporadic blog posting! Thanksgiving will soon be upon us, and I haven’t even posted Halloween pictures yet. Anyhow, please enjoy these little snapshots from our fall activities:
Celebrating Jordan’s birthday!
Astros Day at school! We were hoping for another shot at the World Series, but alas.
Eliza was SO excited about her very first school field trip! Riding a bus for the first time was even more exciting than the Houston Zoo itself.
She carried her map around the entire time.
I chaperoned, of course!
GaGa and Jed did some delicious baking while Eliza and I were at the zoo.
Unboxing an LOL doll.
And lego time, of course!
I’m the Art Masterpiece volunteer for Eliza’s class at school, which means that I get to go to her classroom and teach an art lesson once a month. For October, we decorated the food drive box.
Yay for Oktoberfest! It took place at the same church where Jed and I go to preschool.
Jed and Emma.
Fun in the corn! She doesn’t have a black eye–she wanted her face painted like a dog. Not sure why.
She had to decorate a “G” vest for the alphabet parade at school.
Sorry, it’s kinda blurry, but you get the idea.
Warming our toesies by the fire! It’s been a chilly fall!
1950’s Dress Up Day at school!
This costume may look familiar….
This is Halloween!
And Crazy Sock Day!
Golly gee, they are so cute!
While searching for “grumpkins” (giant acorns), we found this baby turtle instead!
Halloween Day! That means costumes at school!
I’m so glad that I get to be with Jed during his final year of preschool. Such a sweet gift!
I’m amazed at his drawing skills!
Finally time for trick-or-treating! Too bad a huge rainstorm began around 5:30. We still managed to have great fun, though!
I’m hanging onto coordinated family costumes for as long as possible! I love Halloween!
And now, pictures from another of my favorite annual activities! The Texas Renaissance Festival! So glad to be joined by beloved family.
Cyborg face paint.
Ara, my second cousin, actually works there this year!
Ahhh…..the swings. What great fun!
So glad we found Gandalf!
This girl loved the turkey leg!
Love this one!
Behold, a beautiful autumn leaf! She still wanted to wear her flower crown at church the next day.
And at school, the day after that.
That’s all for now! Thanksgiving pictures arriving soon!
