Elsie, Vada Belle and I enjoyed pretty fall days outside while Jackson and Ansley were at school:
Voting in the November Elections;
Vada Belle somehow climbed to the top of the kitchen counter to sneak candy out of the candy bucket- little stinker!
Elsie and Vada Belle "cooking" and Elsie snoozing with her Cinderella and Prince Charming;
Vada Belle loves to read books in her bed, but she can be very picky about which exact book she wants to read. One night I asked Eric to go give her a book, and when I went to check on her this is what I found. Eric said he got tired of asking, "this book?" so he just gave up and gave her all of them. So funny.
The kids love packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, and this year they wanted to each pack their own box before we went to church and helped pack boxes there. They were so proud of their boxes, and had a great time "designing" the box and praying for the child that would receive it.
We also made our second batch of molasses for this fall, and ended up with 32 gallons between the two batches.
We took the kids to visit Santa, but Elsie and Vada Belle were not a fan and wanted nothing to do with him. Elsie wasn't acting herself at all, so I ended up taking her to the doctor a couple of hours after this to find out she had an ear infection.
We spent Thanksgiving once again with so many of our family members at my mom and dad's house. As always, there was more than enough food, lots of fun stories being told, and the kids were entertaining as always.
Just a couple of days later we celebrated Papaw Fred's birthday! The kids loved having their cousins here to play with for several days.
