Harvest Festival and Thanksgiving Feast

Henry had his so much fun Harvest Festival today.  He had 8 different stations to rotate to and it was so cool!  Each K4 class was responsible for a station.  Our class was in charge of the Indian corn magnet station.  He got to make homemade butter, copper punching, bead the magnets, make a homemade candle, make a frame with a photo background, make a clay bowl (which accidentally fell in the trash), and paint a tee pee and totem pole!  What a fun morning!

Henry's Indian name was Roaring Lion.  I love it!

My little Roaring Lion

Not to impressed with this candle
Even Gammy game by to the festival!  It's not easy for Gammy to get off work so this was really special that she took the time to come.  Henry and I loved it!

All the boys

So glad Daddy stopped by for a minute

Candle Making

He really liked the copper punching using a hammer and a nail.  Just like a pilgrim!

This was one of his favorite parts..painting!

After Harvest festival we went to meet Bennett for his Thanksgiving feast.  He didn't want to eat the mystery Thanksgiving school food so we brought him Julianne's.  He ate the gigantic burger too!

Bennett chose his name to be Annoying Jaguar.  Why??  Because it's funny, Mom! OK.
These people make me so THANKFUL!

A little of this and a little of that

We had to put in a new A/C!  Happy Holidays to us.

Bennett had a play date with his new best buddy, Logan.

We had a baby shower for Sarah and Baby Shep.

Me, Claire, Sarah, and Regan...hostesses with the guest of honor

Amy is teacher of the year!!!!  I am so proud of her!  This is her 3rd time.  That is almost unheard of.  You have to be pretty darn amazing to be teacher of the year let alone 3 times!

I taught Sarah Kathryn's ECA (Early Christian Awareness) class and she was loving it!  She participates like a champ

Run for Funds...there's Bennett speeding by us.  He got 265th out of 315!

Souper Bowl

Bennett loves football...have I said that before?  HE LOVES IT!  They were able to reschedule the Souper Bowl to let the boys play their last game.  They were thrilled.  

Group shot after winning!

Here's the second place trophy that they were given after winning the game.  Oops..a mom handed the 1st place trophy to us after they realized we had the wrong one.

1st place!!  Out of 2 teams!
I love a family photo even if 3/5 aren't smiling.

Bennett's got fans! (Pops and Carolyn left before our photo)

Mr. Glenn is so sweet to come to all the games

Raines Gender Reveal

We had an exciting gender reveal for the Raines family.  I was thrilled to be the chosen one who knew the gender.  I felt so honored!  It was hard keeping it a secret for a week, though!

Lindsay and Katie helped by bringing pink and blue drinks and candy.  I brought mustaches and lips and had everyone wear pink or blue.  Leigh wanted to have it t her house and she did all the cooking!  
3/4 think it's a boy!  Leigh thought girl
It's a.......

Baby Luke is on his way in April!!

These 2 thought it was a girl!!!

Henry's Santa's Workshop

Henry's school had a really fun fundraiser called Santa's Workshop.  We had a preview party on Friday and a sweet little program on Saturday.  The food was good and so was the company!  What a fun evening!

We all got up bright and early and donned our Christmas gear in November.  We were happy to get to see Henry sing with his friends.  He did an outstanding job singing!  I never know if he will actually get up there and sing, but he did!

Thanks to Sadie for letting us borrow this dress!

State Fair 2015

Pops likes to take us to the fair every year.  It is always good for people watching and eating things off sticks.  The kids loved the bright lights and rides.  Carolyn brought Reid and he had a great time, too.

Henry and Reid loved walking around together and deciding what ride to ride.

Bennett played along and rode on the kiddie rides with the kids.

Pops rode the spinning bear with the boys.  How cute!

The tiny light next to the ferris wheel is the helicopter that Bennett and Neil rode! They loved it.

I took the little boys in a fun house.  They thought the mirror was so funny!

Bennett won the water gun race.

Machine gun shooting!

Super slide!

This sweet thing loved walking around and looking at everything!  She kept breaking out of her stroller.  She loves to be on the go.

A ninja, a shark, and a little lamb (AKA Halloween 2015)

Halloween was on a Saturday this year and that is just about the best day it could be on.  We got to hang out all day and even fit in a flag football game that they rescheduled  for Halloween afternoon.  The game made us miss the Monster Bash, but Bennett would rather die than miss a football game!  

We decided to carve pumpkins in the shop and of course, Neil broke out the power tools.  He can do anything! :)

Wolves howling at the moon..yes.
After the game we sped hoe, changed into our costumes and started walking.   The cul de sac behind us has a little block party so we went to that for a minute.  We had to go by Mr. Glenn and Mrs. Pat's and they had some very special goodies for the kids.  We were invited to a fun party at the Favrot's, too.  It was a great time in the neighborhood!
My sweet shark, my sweet lamb, and my sweet ninja

Sister walked all the way up to the house on her own!

We were glad that Gammy came to meet us!  It has always been our favorite holiday!

Jill made all kinds of carnival games in her garage.  So cute!

Boswell and Jones families...doing Halloween together since 1987.
Bennett got to see his school friend, Julian!  How fun!

I love costumes!  We had fun dressing up, too!

We ran by the Raines's after and they were having a dance party in the front yard,  Amelie, Jake, and SK giving big hugs!!
