He's Makin' a List...

...and so are they. The girls spent the afternoon circling pictures in magazines and writing out lists. Emily's list contains approximately 5000 items and Gracie's has about 6. Last night Emily said "Mommy, do you think Santa will bring me everything on my list"., honey, I don't.

On the schooling front, yesterday we read about the Exodus in our history book which Emily thought was awesome since she's so familiar with it from the Bible. Then the girls painted up a shoebox diorama of the Red Sea. Check out Grace's little Israelites...

And in more school news...Emily finished 1st grade spelling. I'm so glad I got a deal on both 1st and 2nd grade books this year at the Fort Wayne Curriculum Fair because we were able to just jump right into 2nd grade. Now if we can just survive ancient history.

Trick or Treat

Oh, the cuteness was too much for Mommy this year! Emily was radiant in her Belle costume that she bought with her own money! And could Grace be any cuter in her homemade pumpkin costume? We walked the neighborhood with Grandma and Grandpa K then headed over to Grandma and Grandpa M's got it...more candy!! And oh dear, I'd say we now have about 8lbs. of candy sitting on our kitchen counter. Anyone for a play date?

Welcome Home...

I found this written on the bathroom mirror when I returned home from work one night. I left it up for days but finally it started to drip, so sadly it had to go. Life is so sweet...
