6th Birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas decorating and more!

It's been a busy and fun month over here! We've celebrated a 6th birthday (a few days late since Trevi was in Belize)! We had our first Thanksgiving (at the lake no less), lots of holiday celebrations at school, decorated our house for Christmas and our first movie theatre experience!

Lets start with my little man and his trains!

When the airline won't let one parent take a kid out of the country without a note from the other parent, you'll have to spend the night in Houston! Rental car fun!

Trevi loves all animals... real or fake!

Go figure... the Children's Museum was free the evening they were there!
