Turkey Day Fun

We had an awesome Thanksgiving!  We continued with our Turkey Trot tradition, with the kids running the one-mile grade school run.

It was an absolutely freezing morning!  Here we are keeping warm before the start of the race!


Poppy ran the mile with them!


Here they come…where’s Pop???


Grace was having fun!


Poor little frozen Liam!


Medals!  So cool.


Mommy made it through the 5k!


We headed home to watch the parade and then had an awesome dinner with family!  We even taught my grandfather how to play Disney Headbanz…one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen!


We hope all our friends and family had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!

Sock Hop 2013

One of our very favorite school events is the sock hop!  The kids get all decked out in 50’s gear and we dance the night away!

I think this may be the last year we are able to squeeze Liam into this jacket!


Cool dudes from third grade!


Liam was a crazy dancing man!


Lovely ladies from second grade!


Liam and his teacher, Mrs. Brady!  He loves her!


We had such a great time!

Happy Halloween 2013

I was so excited this year when the kids decided to have coordinated costumes!  I’ve been wanting this every year since the clown costume year.

We set to work creating the costumes, cheating a little bit with buying the Batman pajamas for Liam to wear…they were just too perfect!

We had a couple of Halloween events the week prior to trick-or-treating, and I’m so glad that I took their pictures then…Halloween itself was a miserable, rainy, windy mess!  We were soaked by the end of the night!

Liam as Batman!


Grace as Batgirl!


Seamus as Robin!


Protecting the neighborhood from crime!


We had a great time on Halloween, despite the terrible weather!  Hope you all enjoyed your trick-or-treat as well!
