Lego Mayflower History Lesson

Cole: MOM, LOOK WHAT I MADE! IT'S A SHIP! IT'S THE MAYFLOWER!

                               
 
Me: Oooh, wow! Tell me more.
 
Cole: IT'S THE MAYFLOWER AND THOSE ARE PILGRIMS AND NATIVE AMERICANS ON IT! THEY ARE GOING TO AMERICA BECAUSE THEIR KING WANTED THEM TO GO TO HIS CHURCH, NOT THE CHURCH THEY WANTED TO GO TO. SO NOW IN AMERICA THEY CAN GO TO ANY CHURCH THEY WANT!
 
LAND HO!

Friends Thanksgiving Feast

We had our annual Friends Thanksgiving Feast earlier this week.  Our friends truly are like extended family - and it's so great that we can celebrate with them!

A smorgasbord of delicious eats:




 All the mamas:
 The kids table(s)!




 All the kids, minus Chase (Chris took him home early because of Chase's ridiculous 5:30 bedtime):


 Thanksgiving BINGO!



 And, of course, pie:



 We ended the festivities with everyone gathered around the piano, singing Christmas carols! It was like a Hallmark movie :)


Good friends and good times!

Family Photos

We snuck in a few quick (and when I say quick, I mean QUICK!) family pictures in between the raindrops in Portland.
