Merry Christmas to All

MERRY CHRISTMAS 2017!

The weekend before Thanksgiving, we headed down to Branson with some of our friends and neighbors.  It was cold and damp, but the kids still had a great time!









Then it was time to start decorating for the holidays!  Since it was our first Christmas in the new house, Graham and Maddie got their own little tree for their room. 



Mom got a surprise from the neighbors and celebrated her 40th the night before Thanksgiving.

We spent Thanksgiving with Jeanne, Max, Bob AND TOI!!!  She stuck around to have Turkey before heading off to Thailand.
Graham is turning into a true man.  Asleep on the couch on football Sunday.


On Wednesday, Dec 13th Mom and I went to the Nutcracker and I loved it!



We hosted our annual Christmas party.  Dad had to have won the best dressed award.  Who else could rock out a Christmas suit.  And Brad's belly button fanny pack was a hit as well.
 



















Christmas was wonderful and now we're ready to kick off our next adventure. Our trip to Thailand!
















Grandma Ta...ready or not, here we come!

Piano (Wo)man

On Sunday, October 1st, we headed to say goodbye to our boys in blue...Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Lorenzo Cain, and Alcides Escobar.  It was a gorgeous fall day and we were happy that Pierce and BobBob could join us!


Yes, I'm a little crazy sometimes.  Undies over PJs.  Totally normal.
And a BIG thanks to Mimi and Max from Graham on his new bike!!!


Graham loved getting to wear my hand me down shoes!


We celebrated Ta's 49th birthday (ha), cleaned out the hot tub, and hit up the farmstead early in October.


The weather has definitely turned cold enough to break out the hat and gloves.


Mom visited school to be the Mystery Reader AND Art Helper on 10/20.


And the best part of the month was heading to Worlds of Fun with Paige!




Errrr...the best part of the month was HALLOWEEN!  How could I forget about free candy?!?  This year, we went with our neighborhood pals.


And crazy enough, when we got home someone had TP'd the neighbors.  Must've been some crazy teenagers!


Graham and I finished our soccer seasons which leaves us more time for other things like celebrating Dido's bday, starting piano lessons, losing our two front teeth, and rocking out matching jammie's compliments of our neighbor.
