It's starting to look a lot like Christmas

Busted out the decorations this weekend, the kids were more interested in decorating themselves.
He, he - Guess who made their first appearance at our home, Elf on a Shelf! Alice is pretty skeptical and Kyle just asks him 'How are you doing today?'

Happy Fried Turkey Day

You guessed it, we fried another turkey (and had a Truducken - which was a bust)

Watching from a safe distance

I'm not quite sure what to write under this photo!

Bring on the Inside Projects

I spent the weekend working on the kids bathroom - stripping wallpaper, washing off wallpaper glue, painting the first coat to block residual glue from coming through the new paint. Fun (not really)! Tom kept the kids entertained while I was busy, they weren't very happy that mom was so preoccupied with something other than them. Thanks Tom! I'll post a photo of the before, during and after soon (have another coat of paint to do first).

Lunch with Dad - Alice's corn dog came in this stylish container.

Ouch, Kyle took a digger at school. Fortunately no teeth were hit!

After every single house, Kyle would say "I got one!"

Checking out their loot. I think we have counted and resorted the candy at LEAST a dozen times.
