November Misc (2016)

It's random photo time! ;)

Miranda dancing one morning before school!  This picture reminds me that we haven't seen her hat in  a while and I need to go look for it! ;)

Every so often, Miranda wants her hair fixed a different way.  I think this cute headband helped her decide on this day!

Later, we went to the store and I found this basket where she immediately said, "look, I can put my head in it!"

Miranda is past the time where I have a set naptime.  Instead we just go with random naps.  They are not everyday and they are anywhere she falls asleep.  On this day, the floor was apparently very comfortable.  Oh to be little and be able to sleep on the hard floor.

Miranda is such a trooper and accompanies me anywhere and everywhere.  On this particular day we went to a work day at the school and she played while I cut out things for teachers and they served us lunch!

This was Meredith's turkey that we made a disguise for! ;)

One of Meredith's good friends from Kindergarten lives around the corner from us, so when she had a birthday party, Mackenzie, Miranda and I walked/skootered Meredith to her house...

...and then rode Meredith's bike back home.

Not sure what this was all about, but it's quite the costume!

For the first time ever, I made Miranda eat her dinner from the night before for breakfast.  She was throwing a huge fit the night before and wouldn't eat her dinner, so I saved it in the fridge and made her eat it the next morning.  She fought it for a little bit, but finally ate it.  And that night she ate the same thing for dinner but without fussing.  Hopefully, it set an example for the big girls that I will follow through and they will eat something for breakfast if they don't eat it for dinner.

Last Christmas, as in 2015, my mom bought the girls pea coats to where to church during the winter.  I think this was our first Sunday to wear them!  The big girls and I have bible class upstairs so I took pictures!

Afterwards church and lunch we went a fireplace/grill store and the girls had fun playing on the patio furniture!

A couple of times a month, all of us girls wind up in my bed just relaxing.  I'm pretty sure this was a Sunday afternoon.

Look it's cindyloo!

The first pajama day of the school year - some of their favorite days!

Miranda is just like Meredith in that every day she takes something different to the school to pick up the girls.  One day it's a phone and the next it's her baby!

I don't always take pictures of the girls before school, but sometimes I remember.  On this day, Meredith wanted pig tails like her friend Caroline and she was super excited to have them when she was wearing the same dress that Caroline has, as well!  Too funny!

November is officially blogged!  Maybe I'll get through December before January is over! Ha!

Thankful Parties

The big girls' school has Thankful parties instead of Christmas parties and this year I volunteered to take yearbook pictures for some of the parties. Miranda joined in for the day long adventure and did great! She played with the toys in the preschool class and then hung out in the stroller for a 5th grade party. ;)

After those 2 parties we went back to the PTA room and had lunch and I gathered my stuff to run Meredith's party since I'm the room mom.  And since I'm the room mom, I have only 2 pictures from Meredith's party. ;(  It was a crazy 45 minutes!

Miranda was great during this party.  She sat contently in the stroller and allowed me to walk and talk all over the room helping kids with crafts and games.  Before I left, I took a picture of the paper bag turkey I made filled with popcorn.  For the record, I was asked to make this, it wasn't my idea. ;)

I had intended to take pictures of a first grade party next, but the kinder party wore me out, so we just relaxed for 45 minutes before heading to Mackenzie's party. ;)

Mackenzie's party including stringing beads to make a pumpkin and of course a snack!

Miranda of course had yet another snack of skittles and pretzels!  Her 4th "snack" of the day" - basically one for each party she went to!

Mackenzie's class also played a couple of games.

One of which, Miranda joined in!

Mackenzie's party was over at 2:35 and since school gets out at 3:40 I decided to check the big girls out of school one hour early.  I rarely check them out early after an event, but Miranda and I had been there since drop off at 8am, so we were tired.  Miranda was really tired, because she fell asleep in the stroller while we waited for Meredith to be checked out of her classroom!

We have Valentine's parties next month, but Miranda will be in school, so we'll see how that works out.

Go Aggies!

In November we went to our annual Aggie game with Brandon's company.  It was super cold that morning and since it was an early game, we were there before the sun had a chance to warm us up!  We didn't have tickets to the game and only went to the tailgate party at the jobsite on campus.  We hung out a little while in the jobsite trailer to keep warm! ;)

Once it warmed up, we were able to shed our jackets and play some games!  This is how Miranda plays the bean bag toss game! ;)  Also, she liked "cleaning" her shoes on the boot cleaner.

Mackenzie and Meredith found a new friend and spent at least an hour drawing with sidewalk chalk.  Thank goodness we brought that with us!

Selfies with Miranda in the bright sunshine is fun! ;)

Miranda had fun with a stair rail.

And Meredith had a lot of fun with sidewalk chalk.  They would right over and over again in the same spot to create "pixie dust".  Basically their hands and pants were covered in sidewalk chalk, but it kept them busy and happy, so whatever.

I sure liked the selfies on this outing. :/  However, I really like this one of us!

Learning to play football!  That was pretty interesting and hysterical.  Meredith wanted to wear her hat but she still wanted everyone to see her aggie clip, so we clipped it to her hat!

Eventually, the girls needed something else to do, so we went inside the trailer and they drew on the large white boards.  Miranda said, "look momma I drew a frog!"

And then, Meredith said, "I can draw a frog!"
I was shocked at how good her frog is.  Not too bad for a 5 year old!

We knew it had been a good day when this was our backseat on the way home!
Can't wait until next year!
