The day after Thanksgiving

Friday morning I heard Barley barking like crazy at the front door and I figured someone must be at the door. So I went to the door and what did I find but 4 turkeys strutting around in the front yard. I ran and grabbed the camera and took a few pictures of these 4 brave turkeys. I guess the figured they made it through the holiday and could now get out and strut. It was pretty funny. They stopped in the cul-de-sac and stretched their wings before heading on up the street.

Thanksgiving 2010

I didn't take many pictures but here are a few from Thanksgiving Day. We started the day off at Chris' Uncle Barry's and ended the day at Meme and Ping's. Sorry the pictures are backwards.

Ava and Ping had lots of fun playing in the leaves.

The Princess Show

November 13th we went to Disney Princess' on Ice at the Macon Centreplex. Ava had been looking forward to this since August. I must say it was money well spent. She sat still and glued to the show for 2 hours. She absolutely loved the show. She got to see all her favorite princesses and together in one place. Her favorite was Ariel. Chris took almost 600 pictures but here were a few from the show. I tried to pick out one with each of the princesses. It was really a good show and hopefully we will be able to go again if they come back close.

After the show she slept the entire way home.

Ava's Prayer

This was too funny not to write down. As I was tucking Ava into bed she informed me that she could pray by herself. I was very proud of that and makes me thankful that she is at a Christian school. Anyways she said she wanted to say her Ariel prayer ( as in Ariel the Little Mermaid). Not unusual, she has been stuck on Princess prayers for awhile. We thank Jesus every night for all the princesses. So she started her prayer and this was how it went:

Dear Jesus
Thank you for my curtains,
thank you for my life,
thank you for my blanket,
and thank you for the Ipad I play with.
In Jesus name Aaaaamen.

It really took all I had not to bust out laughing. She usually thanks Jesus for random things around her room, but the fact that she threw in her life tonight was too funny to me.
