Birthdays, Leaves and Tribal Council

November 22, 2007 at 4:53 pm 4 comments

Matthew turned four years old earlier this November. In case you’re wondering why there’s a “2” candle and a “4 candle” — he shared a cake with two year old Isabella, after our small group meeting on Friday night.  The cake was made by a mexican lady, who makes the best coconut, pineapple and strawberry cakes. I’m going to order it as long as I can find an excuse!  He got a baseball shooter for his birthday which spits out the baseballs so you can hit them. Matthew will go out to play baseball, but actually spends a lot of time talking over a fence to a three year old girl.


Fall arrived late this year, and our one maple tree shed a bunch of leaves overnight.  Notice how many leaves are still ON the tree. 


Finally, thanksgiving has arrived! The second graders had a tribal council where they dressed up in REAL animal skin.. I was nagged and nagged to go see the REAL animal skin, so here are the pictures:

    Thanks Yuen Pin. We’re all looking forward to next summer too. It should be lots of fun, and we’ll take plenty of pictures (I’m sure Glenn will!).

    Leen, the boys can’t wait to play with Shane & Alix, and maybe by that time, Russell will be old enough to join in!
