Some things we've been doing...

 Tracing letters.  This first one is Isaac's. He likes to color over everything after he trace's the letter.
 Savannah's.  They are both left- handed, although I think Savannah is ambidextrous. She starts with the left and switches up often.
Painting on the concrete patio. (with water)


I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

The "Mad Face"

Savannah and Isaac were tracing their letters, and I heard Savannah giggle.  She had turned her paper over and drawn a face on the other side, complete with "angry eyebrows".  She said, "Mama, she is not happy, she is MAD!" (another giggle) Then she embellished the eyebrows a little more.  :)

A Nature Walk

 We had a picnic the other day, at a local state park. After our picnic we took a little walk. I was excited to get some good pictures! I love these beautiful fall days.


 We found some really pretty mushrooms.  They reminded me that mushrooms are poisonous, unless we buy them from the store. We have had these discussions before, since they love to eat mushrooms. But NOT outside ones!  I remember reading that orange ones are very poisonous.
 Mushrooms are very interesting and pretty to look at.

 He "climbed" this tree - just the very lowest branches. I got several cute pictures.
I love this one!

Goodbye, October - Part 2

"October gave a party; The leaves by hundreds came - The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples, the leaves of every name. The Sunshine spread a carpet, and everything was grand, Miss Weather led the dancing, Professor Wind the band." ~~~~~~~~~~~  George Cooper, October's Party

Goodbye, October - Part 1

 We spent the last weekend of October with my Aunt Glenda at her house on Signal Mt., close to Chattanooga, TN. We had a great time!! These are a mixture of pictures from the Halloween party at Aunt Glenda's house, and our outing to downtown Chattanooga. I forgot my camera (gasp), so my sis Melissa took most of these pictures. Thank you Melissa!
 Glenda's house.
 My sister Kimberly made these yummy cupcakes, which were actually German chocolate brownies with cream cheese icing. Yum!
 Princess! I let them pick their costumes, and she loves the girly stuff!  I'm not really sure she knows what a princess is, but she knows they get to wear pink frilly clothes! After I helped her get into her costume, she said "Oh Mama, now I feel like a lovely princess!"

Super Grover!!! He thinks Grover is hilarious, and loves Super Grover.  Everyone thought he was so funny. :)  He ran around saying "I'm SUPE - ER GWOVER!!! He loved being blue and having a cape! I made his cape out of a sheet. :)  Savannah said "I am the princess, and he is my Super Hero!"
 Downtown Chattanooga, close to Rembrandt's Coffee House. We love going to Rembrandt's, and it is in a beautiful part of town! These pictures are a little mixed up, but that is how they uploaded - oh well!

 Beside Rembrandt's.

Yummy pumpkin spice latte and tomato artichoke soup at Rembrandt's.

 They actually asked if they could go swimming!!
 They were fascinated with this sculpture.
 Being goofy, their favorite way to be!  Isaac, where do you come up with these faces?
