Me, That's Who

On November 15th our class celebrated thanksgiving. We all drew roles; some were pilgrims while others, including yours truly, were Native Americans. I much prefer headbands to hats though so this was fine by me!
We had a Thanksgiving feast as part of the festivities and I was responsible for bringing the stuffing. Stove Top: Just the like the Pilgrims had. I assume that's been a tag line of theirs at some point right?

Everyone in the class was asked what they were thankful for and our teachers captured the answers so they could be shared with our parents.
My guess is that some parents were a bit more pleased with their kid's answers than others. Enjoy!

On the 18th I went to a birthday party for Brooke, one of the girl's in my class. Did you know you can have PONIES AT YOUR BIRTHDAY PARTY? I must say that I am a little disappointed that M&D had not made me aware of that fact. But, the cat's out of the bag now and guess who has a bday coming in under two months!

Remember, you can't take it with you, but you can lick it so no one else can take it when you're gone.

Until Later,

I'm the Arabesque Around!

Three months ago was the heart of football season and on November 10th, Mae and I donned our finest ksu garb and met Aunt Darcy, Grandma & Grandpa Davenport for breakfast at First Watch Shoppes at Corporate Woods. Oh, and Dad was there too.
After breakfast we headed over to G&G D's to play. Play means different things to different people though. For Dad, play = sit on couch and watch football. For Mae, play = sit. For me, play = helping GmaD in the yard or feeding my sister.

That night M&D and I went over to Maddie's house to watch KSU v TCU.
Cake & Ice Cream!

On Sunday the 11th, M&D (and Maebe, kinda) helped me with my turkey art project for school... that was due on Friday... the 9th.
I must say, I had fun doing this and enjoyed M&D's help but it was clear that several parents did a LOT more than just help. My goodness, get a grip parents!

Business as usual on Nov 13th. Arabesque here, arabesque there.
Arabesque everywhere. Everywhere? Everywhere.

Remember, you can't take it with you, but you can lick it so no one else can take it when you're gone.

Until Later,

Maebe You Should Smile

Mom, Dad and I got home from KSU on November 4th and that night we taught Mae how to play Go Fish.
Does she look like she's having a blast or what?

November 5th is Mom's birthday and despite being a Monday, we celebrated with an early breakfast at First Watch.
Not pictured? Mom... Oops.

On the 6th I tagged along for Mae's two month checkup. While we waited for Dr. Shanker (Mae in her brand new KSU blanket) I read her book.


Aunt Abby stopped by that night and at least one of us was happy to see her. Mae looks less than thrilled but I'm sure... it's just a bad camera angle... or... something.


On the 7th we met AA and Uncle Scott over at G&G H's to celebrate the birthdays of both Mom and GpaH!
Look at all those smiles!...?

I'm not sure about the math here but I'm confident we were a bit shy of the 100 or so candles that should have been on this cake. Still, I did my part.


GpaH got some new glassware for their now finished basement. They weren't all as cool as this glass so here's to hoping if any should fall and break on the new tile floor, they aren't donned in the purple and the white.

I was back over at G&G H's after school on the 8th.
You know what really stands out to me in this pic? We need to get GpaH his own mat!

Remember, you can't take it with you, but you can lick it so no one else can take it when you're gone.

Until Later,
