Colette's 6 Weeks Awards (In other words, I'm super behind...)

Six weeks ago, we went to Colette's 6 weeks awards ceremony. She got all A's!

Gavin's Birthday

My son, Gavin, turned four on 11/7. We had a small get together for him at his Meme's house. We had a moonbounce, pinata, and BBQ (we live in south Texas, so it was still 80 degrees out). We had a lot of fun, but we did miss Daddy (he is in Florida at tech school).


My not really an advent calendar...

I made a special calendar for the kids today. It's sort of an advent calendar, but not really. Like most kids, mine are very visual. They like to look at the calendar every day, and count down the days to whatever event is coming up next (currently our trip to Florida to see Daddy).

So I wanted to have a calendar that had the months of November & December all together, so we don't have to flip any pages. And I wanted it to be big, and easy to read.

What I ended up with is a simple calendar, but the kids love it. They looked over every day, and Colette read all the events to me. We are going to cross off every day with a sharpie.
