Decorating The Tree Is Exhausting
Our tree is pre-lit and one of the rows of lights went out :( It will be fixed soon. The kids still did a great job decorating it.
Since we live so close to D.C. we decided to make a day trip and go up. The kids were so excited to see the monuments and we had so much fun.

This is our second Thanksgiving celebrating with these wonderful families. We have been friends for years. We had another great holiday!
We did a D.C. day earlier in the week. The kids had a lot of fun, it was to prepare for our day we are going to spend in D.C. this weekend.

Daddy went to a conference in D.C. so we went and spent one night with Kellie and Brian and went to the Hampton Holiday parade. It was great, it blows our little town one out of the water. Here are also some other pictures.

We made our living room into a movie theater, complete with movie tickets, seating, and popcorn.

Cute group shots always have hilarious outtakes.

At The Parade...
I am going to make an honest effort to take more pictures this week. Life has just been busy, but I know in no time they will be off to college and I'll wish I had more pictures to look back at.

Rosalie's reading is really taking off. We are so proud!
Troy had a great report card, perfect attendance, and received the Paw Pride award!
Cici is 9 months old today! She officially has been out of the womb as long as she was in, especially since she was born on her due date. She is such a happy, fun, easy baby. She brings so much joy to our family.
Rosalie is Merida from "Brave"
We learned all about China today. The kids loved it and know lots now.
They wrote in Chinese characters. Rosalie wrote "The Great Wall" and Troy wrote "Star Wars."
They made a mini version of The Great Wall
The Chinese Flag
We made salt dough fortune cookies.
