Thankful Hearts

Thanksgiving break found us on the road making a visit to Grandma Tonie and Grandpa Crane.  Bonus: our cousins were there at the same time, so the kids got to play together...
We were back home in time to host Thanksgiving for the Pourciau side of the family.  The kids really enjoyed taking a trip to the neighborhood park...


We also had a chance to catch up with friends over the holidays.  These three were babies together at Mrs. Paula's...



These two have been friends since birth and had a great sleepover together...









The pictures are all out of order, but they're full of people we love!  We're thankful for family and friends this holiday season!

Helping, Achieving, and Singing: Oh My!

This new house has been a lot of work, but lucky for Damon he has had some really good helpers...
Meanwhile, Stella's choir class took their annual trip to the nursing home to perform their Christmas musical for the residents.  The choir is 5th-12th graders, but these are just the 6th graders...
Sweet friends! 
Stella has friends of all ages...
And while Stella was busy performing, Cille was being crowned Eagle of the Month in chapel! 

Here's a 5th grade to 6th grade comparison shot of these two...they matured so much! And so did the iPhone camera!
And we can't forget our favorite redhead!

Top Chef First Grade: Part 2

For Chef Foval's second cooking class, pumpkin energy balls and pumpkin smoothies were on the menu.  I will let you take a look at Watts' face and guess how he feels about pumpkin flavored items...
Cade was stand-offish also...
The kids enjoyed making the items...
They just did not enjoy tasting the items...
See what I mean?
They did enjoy the whipped cream immensely...



Who knows what they'll cook up next time?

Corinne's 5th Birthday Party, Part 1

Corinne celebrated her 5th birthday with a Descendants-themed soiree...
Special thanks to Caroline who let us borrow her Mal and Evie costumes for the party...

First activity: Descendants Karaoke in the theater...


It was nice to be able to get pre-made party supplies instead of having to create our own.  A friend also had a Descendants party a couple of weeks before ours and sweetly saved all their decorations for us!  


Even our guests dressed up!  

Watts insisted on being Carlos...



Bouncing was also on the party agenda...



More birthday fun to come!
