Elise:  Had to take advantage of the warmer weather and plant some bulbs this week.  Can't wait 'til spring!

Caleb:  You know you are loved when your dear friends' parents invite you to their house for Thanksgiving because you're far from home.  Loved sharing dinner with the Glenns AND enjoying their beautiful farm!

Lucas: ...oh, did I mention, there were Gator rides, too?!?!

Eden:  This girl barely says a word, but she makes her requests for independence known.  Loves getting dressed and putting on her own shoes.  :)

Grammie and Granddad visit St. Louis!


Elise:  Birds' eye view of our new stomping grounds - we made it to the top of the Arch!  

Caleb:  Working on circuits with our Children's Museum!

Lucas:  Craft time with Grammie...another reason to love our Children's Museum!

Eden:  I think she could have stayed here all day...Thanks Granddad for being so patient while watching coffee filter hot air balloons go into the air about a million times!

Elise:  An inspired salad from my eldest kitchen sidekick; she prepped and chopped everything herself!  She was especially proud of the apples and blueberries she thought to add.  (I could get used to this!)

Caleb:  We discovered a fun new list of "easy readers" and this was an instant favorite.  So exciting to watch our little man get excited about reading!

Lucas:  Reunited with our Legos!  Hooray!

Eden:  Found her daddy on the Veteran's Wall of Fame at the kids' school!  What a sweet and special program they had to honor and thank veterans in the community.

Well, we moved in to our house this week and needless to say things have been a little hectic!  Thank goodness Josh's colleague offered to share all these costumes with us on the night before Halloween...otherwise the kids were going out dressed as tourists!
