Matt's birthday fell on Thanksgiving Day this year. We had a lovely day/ Matt's parents came to visit and we started the morning off with Apple puff pancake (Matt's favorite) then relaxed watching football, playing outside, sitting by the fire, opening the kid's Christmas presents from Grammy and Grandpa and finishing off the day with Thanksgiving Dinner! What a great day!
Katie's school celebrated the Christmas season with a special performance by the K4/K5 classes. I made little mini movies of the singing and took a few pictures. We were so proud of our little girl who looks so grown up while up on the stage! Afterwards, we took Katie and Marcus to Chick-fil-a for ice cream and a little play time!
After church yesterday we took the kids downtown to eat at our favorite restaurant Joseph's. Matt loves the Sweet Potato Pancakes with Pecan butter! When we finished lunch we took the kids to the market and to see Santa. Katie went right up to speak with them, but Marcus wouldn't even let me set him down. Katie didn't care much for Santa at his age either! We had a wonderful day together... here are some pictures of the kids running around playing!

We took the kids to SubFest on the base over the 4th of July for a little fun. There is plenty to do at Subfest- fair food, rides, face painting...Marcus thought the whole thing was pretty amazing. There was plenty for him to look at and scream in delight about. Katie had a blast with her little friends riding the rides, getting her face painted, and eating some french fries! Matt and Marcus enjoyed sharing a rootbeer float at the end of the hot afternoon. We had a great time together!

Cows and Cones is a little farm complete with an ice cream stand. The kids love going there to look at the cows, sheep, pigs, and chickens. Then, we get ice cream and sit on a blanket in the middle of a field and de eat our homemaice cream!
It is such a great time and Marcus loves going there. Here are a few pictures and a little movie clip of him running around in the field. I think we might have a little farmer or cowboy on our hands.
My little sweethearts are growing up so quickly! We went to our neighbors for a BBQ and the kids had a blast playing outside in the yard. Here are a few pictures of Marcus and Katie sitting in a chair together... they are so cute. I can't believe how fast time is going by... goodness! Slow down!
