Happy Hanukkah!

Overheard in the craft room:

EB: You didn't celebrate Christmas in Ethiopia?
Fisher: No.
EB: Did you celebrate hanukkah?
Fisher: Huh? What's that?
EB: It's an African American holiday that they celebrate over there. I think.

We're all about cultural awareness, here.

8th Birthday Celebration for Tate and Fisher

We had a great birthday celebration for Tate's 8th birthday and Fisher's 8th birthday celebration. Since we are giving him August 28, 2003 as his birthday and decided this in October Tate wanted to share his birthday with Fisher. It was fun all weekend long. I love how great the boys got along this weekend for their birthday celebrations!

Zipline Time

Love EB's sweet narrative of her Zipline Time in Mexico. It was a fun time!

Tate's Halloween Spirit

I laughed out loud reading Tate's homework. I love his spirit and tolerance for people having their decorations up on November 1st! Wonder where he gets it from? My dream is to only have Christmas decorations up for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and to wake up on the 26th with no decorations up! Unfortunately, only Tate and I feel this way in our house!

Some twists

Fisher's hair is getting long, I mean about 5" long. We really have no idea how to do his hair or work with it. I keep trying new things and more new things. He wants it twisted so today before school I brushed it out and then finger twisted. Looks pretty cute I think? If only we had the extra hour due to the time change everyday.
