Khaliel's Thanksgiving program at his preschool

 
We opened a Gingerbread Man at Mom's to make, but it was so old the icing was too hard to do anything.  The kids just ate the sprinkles instead. :)



Ellie is starting to play pretend with her babies. :)

 
Eating Thanksgiving lunch at Aunt Gigi and Uncle Bryan's house.

The kids and I went to IL the week of Thanksgiving so Solomon could finish the house renovations.  We had a blast spending time with family!

 
 
 
Apollos wanted to make a movie.  This was the script he wrote.  :)

Being 1 is so tiring!

 
This summer, Ellie learned how to climb up the slide.  Now that she is in pants, she slides back down pretty quick.  She doesn't like this new development.




 
Apollos LOVES to draw.  He is now starting write stories.  He drew this Thanksgiving picture.  It says "Pilgrims and Indians are catching a turkey"

 
Playing in the leaves!




 
It was really windy.  The boys were trying to catch the leaves before they hit the ground.





 
Playing play-doh

Ellie can now say several words.  She also knows her first animal sound....a dinosaur.  You can definitely tell she has big brothers!

We are beginning to learn Biblical Greek as a family.  The boys can sing the alphabet, with some help.  They also know several words.
 
 
 
Ellie is now 14 months old!  She is walking and talking and losing her "babiness" very quickly.  We took her to the doctor the other day, and she is 18 lbs 5 oz and 27 1/2 inches tall.  She is about the size the boys were at 6 months old!  She is still in the 3rd percentile.  We have also started a major remodel on our house.  Hoping to have it done by December!
