Happy Thanksgiving!

I thought my work load would decrease as the kids got older and more independent…so not the case.   I’m taking a moment to post some photos. Most are from Marc’s phone. I’m so thankful that he has been taking photos because I haven’t. I am also thankful that Jimmy is feeling better. He had an ear infection on Halloween and followed that up with hand, foot, and mouth. He’s a little bit stronger now and will hopefully eat a lot tomorrow because on Friday he’s having his adenoids and tonsils removed. I’m guessing he won’t be eating for another week or so afterwards. Please keep him in your prayers this Thanksgiving.

This was done on election night…this is a close up of the TV Isa made.  Gotta love it! The loser is mad and banging on the table.

Sisterly love…got to post the photos when it happens because there is lots of sisterly annoyance!

Happy Halloween 2012!

DSC06572

This year Isa decided we would all dress up as characters from the show, Avatar – the last air bender. Isa was Katara and Jimmy was Aang, the Avatar (pictured below). Since this show isn’t very popular (although it should be because it’s so good), I couldn’t buy costumes and had to make them. It was really fun and surprisingly not that hard (just don’t look too close). Only a handful of people recognized us which made those moments extra fun. We had a great time and Papa Jeph walked with us around the block and Grandma Jo treated the kids twice!

Rosie was Toph (pictured below)

Marc and I were Azula and Zuko- evil fire lords, siblings actually.

We went to a trick or treat party at Misericordia. The residents love handing out candy.

Very fitting expressions: the Avatar/Zuko relationship.
