Time has gotten away from us these past few months with all the fun we have been having, but I have been taking pictures. Here are some things that we have been up to.
Pete still loves to read and has recently been keeping the twins fully entertained as he flips through pages and tells them what is going on. Some books that he has memorized, he actually does read it to them. In particular, Brown Bear, Brown Bear and Sandra Boynton books.
Lily keeps an eye on all of us, just quietly sitting back and taking it all in. She is one content little one and is happy pretty much all the time.
We tried to have Thanksgiving here, even though no one in Africa has even heard of the holiday. We made turkeys, had pumpkin soup and even a pecan pie - with pecans straight from TX. Pete named his turkey above "Guinea"--after the lone, surviving African guinea fowl on my parents farm in Anton, TX.
The first wagon ride on a beautiful November afternoon.
Happy Thanksgiving to all! A pretty good three-kid pose, if you ask me! All looking and smiling.
We are studying Creation now in Bible study and these are some of the crafts he is showing off.
Pete comparing his old teething chew giraffe to the new one the twins received. Jude and Lily will quickly rid the newer giraffe of her spots at the rate they are going. They chew and chew on these squeaking little rubber giraffes. I don't know how we would get teeth without them.
Jude is ready to go and loving life in the exersaucer.
Mommy's little elf, helping me put up the Christmas decorations in the house. Pete is loving the hoidays for the first time this year. It has been so much fun to hear him singing Christmas songs and talking about SanTa
