Merry Christmas Y'all!

We had a Jesus birthday party with some of Ruthie's friends. Complete with cupcakes and singing "Happy Birthday". As the guest were leaving Ruthie waved good-bye and shouted, "Merry Christmas y'all!" Her momma was proud to know she is still a Carolina girl deep down. :) Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!

Snow Days!

The last few days have been snowy and FREEZING. We spent most of Monday and all day Tuesday inside. Wednesday warmed up to 4 degrees (felt like -3) so we decided to go use our new sled with our friends. We were so layered we actually got a little hot (except for our faces).

I am actually in a picture

Ruthie and Eleanor

Ruth has spent the last three days building. She uses blocks, animals, shoes, spices and other random household items. Here are some of her creations.
Ruthie bulit a stage and we performed on it all afternoon.

Ruthie said this was the wall of Jericho.

Ruth took this picture of me sitting in the jail she built.

Thanksgiving Weekend

Our little Squanto. Ruthie learned all about the first Thanksgiving, Samoset and Squanto. We played Squanto and the Pilgrims most days. Ruthie (Squanto) would pretend to help me (pilgrim) hunt for lobster, turkey and plant corn with fish.

(This is for my mom) Here is the turkey I was telling you about.

We went to the Broadmoor Hotel with Gary and Deb for a tree lighting. Our favorite part was the incredible gingerbread village.

Ruthie's helps to decorate the big tree for the first time.
