December 2017

Melvin came back on December 1st.  He kept a good eye on the kids, but also managed to get into some mischief.
Mevin's letter to us on his first day back.

Melvin borrowed Halle's camera to take selfies with a snowman

Melvin had a good time getting into the toothbrushes and toothpaste.
Y'all we HAD SNOW!!!!  Like real snow.  In Houston!  As in Houston, Texas!  It started snowing about 10 pm and at 4 am the ground was covered in about 3-4 inches.  I woke up the kids super early just in case it melted before the sun came up.  Surprise, it didn't!  That meant from about 5 am until 7:30 am (they had to get eventually get to school) the kids played outside, made snow angels, had snowball fights with the neighbor kids, and made snow men.  It was awesome! 

Arden eating the snow.

The drive to work was amazing!  It looked like a winter wonderland.  Definitely my favorite commute ever.

We picked out our Christmas tree.  Actually, Brian picked it out, we just posed for pictures.

Here's all the fun things we did during December.  

Made gingerbread houses.

November 2017

Big month for Jack since he lost his very first baby tooth!  Just like the others, he used Brian's old tooth fairy pillow that night.  

We spent a day with some church friends at P-6 farms in Montgomery.  It was a nice day to, um, roll around in the hay.  There was a corn maze, bumpy butt slide, like they have at Dewberry, jumping pillow, cow train, etc.  The absolute funnest part of the day was watching the pig races.

Dressed up for Thanksgiving brunch at Walden Yacht Club.  Excellent meal like always, and great company.

Afternoon with my Dad, shooting BB guns, and playing with Mila.

Arden sprained her ankle on the trampoline the weekend after Thanksgiving.  She hobbled around on crutches for a few days.

October 2017

Jack got a new toy.  A stick vacuum with a handheld component.  Happy as can be.  So am I! 
Out with the old and in with the new.  Land Rover had to go because it was way too much trouble.  Everyone, meet Pearl.  She's reliable, and well, the color pearl.
Halloween festivities!  Lots of opportunities to dress up, pumpkin carve  trick or treat, the works!

My beautiful Halle all dressed up for Homecoming.  This year she chose to go with a large group of friends.  

October always calls for dress-up days at school.  The littles dressed up for book character day, crazy hair day, and mustache day.
