A little bit of everything....

 The other day while I was cleaning up the toy room Christopher was yelling "all daaaaa mommmmyyyyyyyy" "mommmmmyyyyy alll daaaa" I ignored him for a while but eventually I went to see what he was done with :) I found him IN the sink brushing his teeth. At least the water was not on. My little monkey!
 In the car he kept on putting his hand to his ear saying "hawow...hawow....hawow" and giggling away.
 At the beach doing our family picture....we only get one once a year.
 Mama and her munchkins......I love these boys so much. Last week a little boy in 1st grade died suddenly of an asthma attack. I have broken down in tears several times I can't even BEGIN to imagine what that family is going through. I pray that that family can find some kind of peace somehow.
 Our little family.
 We visited the festival of lights again. SO much fun we drove through 3 times. They put on a fantastic show.
 Yeah he was PRETTY happy to get to drive
 How can you not smile

 This years sand sculpture

 Roasting marshmellows at the festival of lights

 Still my favorite.
 We celebrated Conners SIXTH b-day. His b-day was on Monday but Neal was home which was super nice. We took in cupcakes for his classmates and I picked him up from school early then we headed to the movies. We saw Rise of the Guardians a very cute movie. After the movie we came home and the house was all decorated which Conner thought was super fun.

 We had a few friends over for pizza and cake.
After he finished opening presents he got to FINALLY see his room. He had no idea that I had finished it.

 Our baby is SIX.
 Mr. Chris and Chris....yeah they are buds.
 Opening presents.

Now on to the rest of December....lots of fun things happening almost every week.

Conner's room!

I finished the picture for Conner's room today. For his b-day we are finishing up his room. We switched the bedrooms all around a few weeks back now so Conner has his own room and Ethan and Christopher are sharing a room and are in the bunk beds. Conner has been asking for me to paint him a picture for his room for a really long time now. I got him some other neat stuff and on Monday we are going to set it all up when he is at school. Can't wait!

Another Thanksgiving here and gone. I hate the holidays so much. We did manage to have a pretty yummy lunch. I made 3 pies Thanksgiving morning :)

 Neal worked all night but the amazing daddy and husband he is got up after just 4 hours of sleep to have lunch with us. He napped a little more then headed back to work for another all nighter. He also came down with an awful cold/flu type thing. He has been so miserable and just the worst time for him to be sick....I feel so bad for him just 2 more days and he had a day off to sleep rest and just catch up.
 Baby was SO ready to eat all morning kept on sitting down in his seat.
I made way more food than necessary. I made a 14lb turkey and yes it was ALL gone the 2nd potatoes, fresh green beans, gravy, stuffing, home made dinner rolls. It was all so very yummy. I put on almost 8 pounds in one Yesterday Conner asked me if there was a baby in my tummy....haha.....that was a good motivator to get back to better eating I have not had a slice of pie since ;)

I hope that everyone had a good Thanksgiving!!

A family visit...

 My mom and dad came for a visit the 1st week of November. It was their first time here and we are so glad that they were able to come see us. I found tickets for a very reasonable price but they did have to fly to Myrtle Beach so the kids and I drove out to pick them up. Not a bad drive at all but it would be much nicer to just fly to Charleston.
 We really lucked out with the weather it was just about perfect. It has since cooled down but still in the 60's so can;t really complain for this time of the year. MUCH cooler than it was last year this time.
 We did the Home Depot workshop of course :) Could not miss it.
 We headed to Folly Beach pier for some fishing. My dad loves to fish so I had to make it possible for him to get to fish in the ocean. Luckily the pier had pole rental and one day fishing passes.

 Started out a bit chilly but before noon we were all hot.

 While Dziadzia fished and Neal napped/read his book on the bench Babcia the kids and I went for a stroll on the beach.

 Dziadzia actually caught 6 fish but nothing big enough to keep :/ and no

 Making sand angels.

 We visited the Angel pretty!

 A LONG walk on the beach!
 Yup we live here :)

 Dad found some star fish.

 Sigh looking at these makes me want to go to the beach..... a little too cold for that this week I REALLY hope that it warms up.

 We visited the aquarium of course but SO SO disappointed that we never made it to the actual downtown Charleston.

 We had a bonfire one night and roasted hot dogs and marshmellows.
 We had a great time and are so glad that they came out all the way down here to visit us. We hope that they can come back again soon :)
