Thanksgiving 08

Aunt Becky and Uncle John hosted the whole clan for a huge Thanksgiving feast. The kids (Elijah, Micah, Isaiah, Maggie, Gracie, Sophie and Gabrielle) all watched Kung Fu Panda on the big screen downstairs, but after it was over, we found them all huddled around this 7'' screen watching a Christmas movie. 70'' or 7'', they love watching movies.

On Friday the boys, Eric and I all went over to Maggie, Gracie and Sophie's house for some play time. They all played together with no fights or tantrums at all and the boys didn't mind playing with High School Musical figures or Barbie's Corvette and Jet.
Then, we heard them all laughing hysterically and running up the stairs. Elijah had traded shirts with Maggie and Micah had traded with Gracie. The picture is the result of that little experiment.
All of the kids had a good time playing outside and the two youngest, Sophie and Isaiah, played outside in the chilly weather long after everyone else retreated to the inside.

Isaiah after his turkey and play day. The kid has been worn out. He has taken naps 3 days in a row- a rarity for him!

Micah showing off his new $4 PJs from the crazy Black Friday shopping Nana and I did. He was in a bit of a mood if you can't tell. Isaiah got Star Wars and Elijah got the Hulk. More pictures later.

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
