|Don't Worry! |
He's Not As Pitiful As He Looks!
Tuesday was pretty interesting because we had to pull the kids out of school for a little bit to get Passports at the post office and they don't have after school hours. The whole experience was comical, but when it finally came to taking their pictures, we couldn't keep from laughing! Just imagine trying to get our one of our kids to sit still while the other four of us were laughing and staring at them. Our postal lady Pam was great and took good care of our babies; and yes, she called them babies and me honey the whole time. It was surprisingly lots of fun!
Wednesday Ingram was excited to be back at school since he didn't go on Tuesday and even better, his buddy Nolan brought donuts to school for his birthday snack! Thursday was an even more fun day at school because it was the Thanksgiving Feast at preschool. Ingram was the cutest little Indian in his vest and hat and had a blast while he was at the Feast; however, afterwards, he started to cry because I wasn't there to pick him up early from school! Hugs from his teachers and a quick trip to Gracie Bleu after school at regular pick up time seemed to make it all okay.

Friday was a rainy day that turned out to be a fantastic pajama day! It had rained overnight and the temperature had also dropped and we cancelled our plans and stayed inside all day long! Ingram insisted that we watch The Avengers (again) in the big chair while we ate M&M's and goldfish. Beau also figured out we had food and decided to hop up in the chair with us too. After the movie, it was time to go upstairs and play the Wii and Ingram beat me in every race of Mario Cart that we played. Once the girls were home, we decided to go see Beauty and The Beast Jr. that the school was putting on and it was so much fun. We ran into several friends at the play and Ingram found one of his buddies Jacob! Ingram sat (for the most part) through the whole play and loved running around afterwards getting autographs from the cast members.

Saturday was a big day because our new Team Ingram shirts were delivered and we had fun taking pictures with the new shirts and re-doing the CONQUER Shop website. We spent the rest of the day getting the shirts sorted, folded, and stacked; please make sure you check out the CONQUER Shop either through this link at www.kidsconqueringcancer.com or through the blog and see what's new. As always, proceeds from all sales are sent to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to help them find cures and save lives. Ingram also had another birthday party at SEGA and this time it was Lola's birthday! This was the third weekend in a row with a birthday party at SEGA from Ingram's class and it never seems to get old; all the kids love playing with each other and of course all the parent's chat the whole time too. Madison and Lindsey tagged along and were so good helping out instead of participating in the party.

Yep, Ingram's Making An "L" For Lola, But With The Wrong Hand!
Maybe He Was Just Making It Like That For The Camera??
Sunday morning was a big uh oh! Craig woke up extra early and headed to the office to get some work stuff done before church and left while we were still sleeping. Apparently there were two sleepyheads in the house that stayed up way to late watching "Catching Fire" at the theatre and then slept until almost 10am!!! Lindsey and Ingram didn't even wake us up either; they were coloring, eating fruit snacks, and watching TV; Beau didn't even bark or anything either! Once we awake enough to realize what time it was, it was too late to make it to church on time, so we started cleaning up the house and decorating for Christmas. I know it's a little early, but it's 30 degrees outside; we even turned on the Christmas music on the radio and normally we have a strict "after Thanksgiving rule for all things Christmas!" The rest of the day we spent working around the house and then everyone headed off for an early bedtime. We love spending cold rainy days inside where it's nice, dry, and warm!
