August meant back to school:
I always love trips to the farmer's market around harvest time:
We stopped at an awesome pizza place afterwards:
Football season started back up:
We took the kids to Shiloh National Park (I love taking little trips like these and making history come to life for our kids!)
My hubby and I put in some work updating our front porch (this is the before, as we were just getting started):
We painted the shutters:
The twins went to their first middle school dance:
This is the porch mostly finished-still on our agenda to paint the floor and redo the mailbox...
The bigs got glasses:
September meant 8th grade recognition night for Evan and the other football players/band members/cheerleaders:
We decided it was time to paint the porch- but we hated the color after we put it on (Renovation Realities!) Way too orange!
So. We started over with gray:
Caitlin wanted burgundy hair, so we went for it. It took 3 boxes of dye, and two dye sessions:
And made cupcakes:
In November, we went to Jocelyn's Baby "Sprinkle":
And we shared a wonderful Thanksgiving with family (and way too much food):
And in December,
We had more basketball:
We put up lights and decorations:
Both inside and out:
Did some more fundraising:
Our elf, Snowflake, came back for a visit:
We had an amazing English Christmas dinner; Prime Rib, roasted green beans and shallots, yorkshire pudding, butter, garlic, and shallot roasted potatoes. Mmmm.
This Christmas break, I had a great time with the kids! Cecilia made awesome pancakes:
I worked on some past December Daily albums:
We made gingerbread cookies:
And we played board games. My favorite was Scattergories!
And, that wraps up 2015! Onward to 2016!
