A turkey for Thanksgiving...or maybe a Halloween peacock?

This Halloween we needed Raleigh to be an animal from Noah's Ark (for school).  We went looking for costumes, and found several that would work.  There was the sweetest little giraffe costume that was sooo cute on her.  Our hopes of having a sweet giraffe for Halloween was quickly overturned when Raleigh girl set her eyes on the shiny, colorful peacock costume.  She was smitten!!  Until Halloween came, all she could do was talk about her peacock.  She even wanted to sleep with her costume. Ha!  We went and took some quick pictures of our precious peacock.

The precious peacock!!

Checking out that cool pumpkin.

Someone called her a chicken while we were there.  If that is the case, then she is a super cute turquoise sparkly chicken!!

If I can lift it, can we take it home??

Is there a difference between a jump and a hop?

In our world, you bet there is!!!  Allow me to explain...  if you are hopping, your feet do not come off of the ground.  Not at all....but, if you are jumping, you better believe that those feet are coming off of the ground.  If it is some good jumping, you might even scream and shout a little bit.  So funny to watch our little bunny jump!

Pink Flamingo Party

Recently the girls ministry had an event for 7th grade girls and their moms.  It was a chance for us to get to know the youngest and newest girls to the ministry and their mothers.  Plus, it is so fun!!  Everything is pink and decorated with pink flamingo's (great job Steph).  Raleigh and Clint came for a little bit.  Clint wore blue in protest, and of course RaRa looked cute.  I say the word cute, because that has become a very special word in our home lately.  Raleigh will refuse to wear anything if it is not "cute." Ha! Can you see the mess of a pretty princess that we have on our hands!!  Here are some precious pictures of RaRa:

RaRa played outside while all the girls and their moms arrived.

Check out that tutu!!! Precious!!

Flamingo's lined the sidewalk going to the front door.  Raleigh being the good host that she is, greeted every flamingo.

"Hey, how ya doing famingo?" is what she said to greet each one.

Pink Flamingo Fun!!


A couple of months ago, we had a big fight within the high school 380 students!!!  Not a real fight, but mud wars!!  If I had to sum it up in one word...GROSS!!!  With help from the fire department, everyone got muddy and clean (sort of).  It was so much fun!!  They do a different event like this every so often to give all high school a chance to be together (instead of their separate bible study groups) and have a lot of fun!!!

Some students got dirty...even if they didn't want to!!

Steph and some high school girls...pretty!!

Clint somehow managed to stay pretty clean!!

Some of the group after the mud

Thank you to the fire department for hosing off the kids!!
