Welcoming November with a Birthday Dinner

We had a great first week of November. The weather was still nice, my grandfather celebrated his 78th birthday, there were fun events at school and we survived another busy week!
While I was with the girls at swimming Preston was hanging out at home with Mike and made him this awesome lego creation. I was super impressed with how he was able to figure out how to make the letters and the heart out of legos! So fun to see their little brains at work!

My friend Katie texted me this picture of Addie in primary on Sunday with her paper crane family...she obviously loves participating in singing time :-).

Preston has been obsessed with practicing reading. Found him asleep on his book one night.

So glad I don't rely on the school for yearly pictures of my kiddos, but it's still fun to see the proofs.

Addie has been doing AWESOME at school this year with her behavior. She was so excited that she got the only "HUGE" thing in the treasure box this day, plus she loves owls so it was a double bonus.

We went to visit the kittens again and they had opened their eyes! Ella's swim practice was cancelled that day so we stopped to pick out our Hallmark ornaments as well. Last year they were sold out of one that they wanted so we were sure to go early this year.

Fielder had their first ever family glow walk. It was a mile walk with glow necklaces and bracelets along with some fun music and booths set up. Love our school.

Poor Prest. As the third child and me working like a mad woman, there is just not time for these projects. I actually would have totally forgotten about it if a friend had instagrammed her daughter's the night before. He colored it as a vampire turkey. Definitely not as professional looking as the girls' when they were in kindergarten, but he did it all by himself and didn't seem to mind one bit.

And finally we made it to Friday! We went out to dinner to celebrate Grandfather's (Great Frog's) birthday and then came to our house for dessert. My grandma made one of his favorites...German Chocolate Cake. I'm so thankful that my children know their great-grandparents so well.
