At the start of the month, Ezra was lucky enough to go with Spencer to the Church's 100 year anniversary of their Boy Scouting connection-thingy (don't ask for details...I'm tired). What a fun first activity! Ezra is BEYOND thrilled to be a cub scout. He's been waiting anxiously since going with Spencer to an occasional cub scout activity when he was a den leader a few years ago.
My handsome boys
Mid-month we took a Saturday afternoon trip to the Kemper Museum of Modern Art. That stranger in the middle is one of the girls' besties, Lilly (she lives next door). The boys, however, refused to cooperate for a picture. So...you just get an estrogen-laden one instead.
Here's a few random pictures from sometime during the month. Most of which were taken by and/or with Georgia when she stole my camera to document every nook and crevice in my house.
My scrawny, scrawny baby at 2 months, 3 weeks.
We're working our darndest to get some meat on them bones.
The kids were lucky enough to have Spencer's parents here for their Grandparent's Day, which fell on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. They got to watch the kids in each of their classrooms perform a little program and then got to join them for lunch. They claim they've never seen our kids eat so much as they do during lunch at school. Knowing how picky they are at home (especially Ezra), I'm not surprised! I guess that's the perk of homemade lunches...I only pack things I know they'll eat!
