My Space

Okay, I finally did it. I caved to the pressure. Cabbagehead will be so ashamed!
I now have a myspace account. My thirteen year-old niece helped me start. Here is my url:

Photo Diary of Fall 2007: What I Didn't Blog About

Little Man and Tater started school this fall. Tater does kindergarten five mornings and Little Man does preschool three mornings each week. They love school! I'm glad I gave homeschooling a shot, but we are all so much happier with away from home schooling.

Tater has lots of homework. Every evening we work on spelling, reading, and memory verses. Each weekend one of Tater's classmates gets to take home Prayer Puppy. The lucky parents get to keep a journal of everything the dog does. Here the kids and Prayer Puppy are helping grind wheat to make bread.

This fall we went to two weddings and missed several more. This bouquet was from my cousin's wedding. It was beautiful.

Each fall our family goes to this pumpkin patch at a nearby church.

We always buy at least one over-priced pumpkin.

Little Man as "Pumpkin Boy."

We went to a fall festival where Little Man got his face painted. This was supposed to be a smiley face. Yikes!

Pumpkin Girl and Ariel

Pumpkin Girl and Ariel got tired of the wigs, so we wore them. Such devoted mommies!

Daddy got into the wig action too. What a fun day and a worn-out family.

We spent Thanksgiving in Atlanta. There were 21 of us in my aunt's house.

Yep, 21 of us in the house, and it went well. It was nice to be with my mom's family. I wonder if my aunt will invite all of us back next year. :)

I love the movie A Christmas Story! My parents gave me this ornament. Isn't it magnificent?
Two days before Christmas we went to my parents house to be with my dad's family. There were 22 of us there. It was an especially joyous celebration because my grandmother was home. She broke her ankle in early October and was released from rehab one week before Christmas.

On Christmas Eve we went to church. The service was beautiful. Tater enjoyed belting out the carols and lighting her candle. Little Man had to go to the nursery during the opening prayer. We took this picture when we got home from church. It is amazing that there are no grape juice stains on that white dress. It is even more amazing that Little Man wore the sweater vest all evening!

New pajamas for Christmas Eve. Yea, no more sweater vest!

On Christmas day, Tater got on her new wheels to deliver cookies to the neighbors. My parents came over to our house for lasagna. It was really great to stay home. Oh, we forgot to let the kids open their stockings. I guess we can do it tomorrow morning.

Merry Christmas!
