One day last week, the boys and I made a gingerbread train. THey had a great time and it looked really cute! It was hard trying to keep them from eating the candy, but since I bought it after last Christmas, it was a little old. On Christmas Eve Mimi and Papa came over and we made cookies to decorate and leave out for Santa.

Last week was really busy! Nana came for Lee's graduation from Georgia State. He received his MBA. We are so happy he is finally finished and does not have to attend anymore week night classes. Then we celebrated Nana's birthday with dinner and cake. We were suppose to have my preschool's Christmas program on Thursday, but with the icy conditions we got Wed. evening, school was cancelled. On Saturday, we went to Granny and Pa Pa's to celebrate Christmas. We did have the preschool program on Sunday morning before the church's service that day. It was a busy, but fun week!

I am so behind on blogging! I started this Thanksgiving blog a while back. The site froze up, I got busy and I am now just getting back to it! We had a great Thanksgiving in Boston! It was pretty warm the first couple of days and then very cold the rest. We stayed pretty busy. The day after we arrived Nana had brunch and we got to see several relatives we haven't seen in a while. Uncle Robert and Aunt Katie, Cousin Joshua and his girlfriend Vicki, and Cousin Jason's fiance Megan all came over to visit. Another day we went to the Science Museum which was lots of fun! We also took a Duck tour, which none of us have ever done before. It was a big vehicle that drives on land and rides in the water. It was great to see some of the city I haven't seen before! We then had Thanksgiving dinner at friends of the family, The Deths. Lee also played some football with his long time friends and we all went out that night.

A piece of the Berlin Wall in Boston we saw on the tour. Very neat!

This picture cracks me up! Jake was in a bad mood and didn't want to get in the picture, but Nana got him in it anyway. Should be on that page awkward family photos

Jake's class had a Halloween party on Friday. I was able to go and help out! It is so nice to have Fridays off so I can do some things with Jake's school. They had different stations set up in the classroom. There was a craft station where they made a bat pumpkin. Another station where they decorated cookies, a snack station, a tattoo station, and the Mummy game station. I helped with the mummy station. It was lots of fun and the kids really enjoyed it!
