Sing Songs, Bring Sweets

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!

Making grocery shopping tolerable, one song at a time.

Feeling cozy.

A rainy day is perfect for puzzles.

Also, the elves flew in (via glow-in-the-dark balloons) from the North Pole tonight!  Apologies for the crummy picture.  Their names are Dan and Galaricycle (a made-up Eliza word).

Thanksgiving fun!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving in Kingwood and Fannett.  Nothing is better than spending time with beloved family and friends.

On Wednesday, we went to the Children’s Museum of Houston.  It was spectacular, and the kids loved it!  So glad Aunt Jana joined us!

School Thanksgiving Feast!

It was such an adorable program.  Our little school is the best!

The kids thought it was fantastic that GaGa and Pappy were able to have a delicious lunch with them at school🙂

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

Playdate!

Sorry no pics to share–we had a few friends over for a playdate, and things were wild (in a good way)!  Bonus–coffee and conversation with a couple of my favorite moms  :-)

Love you!

Missing this lady today and every day.

Long days.

We’ve been a little under the weather for the past few days, but we’re feeling better!  Thank goodness–it’s no fun being stuck at home!

Jed loves his “treats” from Halloween!  He dumps his candy bucket and admires/organizes its contents every morning.

Oh, this diva girl!  She wanted Elisa dress, lipstick, nails painted, and glitter hairspray for our glamorous outing to HEB.
