Thanksgiving Break

We had a fun and busy Thanksgiving weekend that included turkey, electric trains, family photos and Brandon's first ride on a Mule. The vehicle, not the animal.

Dinosaurs and More

We had a chance to visit the Carnegie Museum of Natural History this weekend. Evy and Brandon became paleontologists for the day.
Fossil Dig

In addition to the fossil excavation and dinosaur bones exploration, they were able to touch a mastodon tooth and explore the M is for Museum hands-on exhibit for kids. Did you know that the Carnegie Museum has the largest collection of Jurassic dinosaurs in the world? And the most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton that exists?

Happy Halloween!

Evelyn and Brandon turned Halloween into a week long event this year. They picked pumpkins, dressed up for dance class, trick-or-treated at the library and the mall, marched in the kindergarten parade, carved pumpkins, and trick-or-treated in our neighborhood on Halloween (in the rain).
Halloween Costumes

Evy visited more houses than ever before. Brandon made it to three before returning home to pass out candy and play trains while still in his costume.
