Happy Birthday, Finley!

 11/8/13~ For Finley's 7th Birthday he requested a party at his house with his friends and cousins!  He wanted to play video games and eat ice cream!  Great ideas, Finn!  We all had a great time.
 The game room:
Not the best picture, but it shows the covered backyard area.  It was a nice extension of the party.
Ice cream sundaes for dessert!
 Time for gifts:
Tate getting some Elsa time.

Griffin's Class Field Trips

 Griffin's class went to the Northern Lights Tree Farm in October!  It was my first time going, and I was really impressed with it!  The kids got to pick out a pumpkin and learn about various things around the farm.  One of the farmers launched a pumpkin using a catapult---super fun for the kids to see!
Such a big 1st grader!
They learned some yarn games.
Pretty displays!
Are those bats real??

If you look closely you'll see Katrina with Elsa and Finley!
 In early November, Griffin's class visited the Maude Kern's art center to see the Dia de los Muertos exhibit.
 Some of the exhibits:
 Josh took a break from work and was able to meet us there!

Halloween 2013

This is how EWEB does Halloween!  Josh and his co-workers practice during their lunch breaks during September and October to prepare for their performance.  This year the theme was 80's Prom and they did an awesome job as always! (Josh is in the back row on the right--wearing a mullet and a turquoise tie)  Click here if you want to watch it. :)
Some of his moves...
Tate was not fond of Daddy's wig. ;)
That evening we made our rounds trick-or-treating at the grandparents' and great grandparents houses.
We met up with the Greens at Lovey Doveys
With Grammie & Grandpa
Last stop was Memaw and Papa's house
