Kinder Class Party

It's hard to believe her Kinder year is half over! We say farewell to the first semester with a little holiday fun!

Decorating her gingerbread cookie with her bestie Katelyn!

Landry was frequently found sneaking some cookie decorations!

The crew of Ms Clarey's class!

Four besties!

Our favorite Kinder teacher of all. Even on this hair raising day, Ms. Stacy looks amazing! We love her!

Best Friends

They are partners in crime for sure! They get along very well most of the time. Landon looks after Landry all the time and always needs to know where she is. He's protective of her and comforts her. She is the leader and he is her shadow. When she is hurt or sad, he brings her her lovey. Hopefully they will always be best friends!

Boo at the Zoo

The weather for the zoo was perfect for Zoo Boo, and most of Houston thought so too! That's ok. We always enjoy Zoo Boo despite the crowds! We got to see the new elephant exhibit and learned that adult females and their babies shun the adult male. That's why the grown females and the baby elephants live together and the male lives by himself. Sad. Addie couldn't understand why he had to be by himself. I asked her if we should do that to daddy and she said no! haha

Landon just doesn't want to be photogenic these days! :)

Showing the color of her tongue from the tootsie pop!

The girls! Addison loved the painted pumpkins!

Landry and Daddy at the new rhino exhibit! The view is always better on daddy's shoulders.

Landry was the only one who would feed the giraffe. She's our adventurous one!

Off to the Pumpkin Patch

Landon's been talking about going to the pumpkin patch for weeks. We decided to head to a little pumpkin patch and go to our favorite one after Halloween because it was super busy and hot last year when we went. This little place was just right though. We picked up a nice pumpkin to carve and some gourds. Landon's gourd looks like an egg, Landry calls hers a star, and Addison picked out a nice variety! Landry wasn't a pick fan of sitting in the spot with all the pumpkins because of the flies.
For someone who only talked about going to the pumpkin patch for weeks, he sure looks thrilled!
Hard to get all three to look at the camera!

Addison liked the big spider!

The girls! See all the Christmas trees in the background? We will come back in a couple of months and pick one up!
Off we go. Landry wanted to hold Landon's hand because of the cars!

Playdate with Zach

It's the best time of year to go to the zoo. Zoo Boo! The temps are usually cooler and the park is all decked out for Halloween! We decided to meet up with our good friends Jen-nay and Zach and see what the animals were up to!
Just waiting for our buddies to come!

Can't pass up the photo op the tree presented!

Our friends Jen-nay and Zach and baby-on-the-way!

Monkey see, monkey do!

A fun new thing. Pay for some lettuce leaves and get up close to the giraffe. And give him a little snack-a-roo! Landon didn't end up giving him the leaf because he thought his tongue was a snake.

Jen-nay isn't afraid, she's trying to stay out of the shot. It's ok Jen-nay, go in!

Landry wanted to push Zach for a bit! Landon wanted to push the double stroller.

They loved the chimps! The chimps were eating nuts and popsicles!

How cool is it to climb into the fish tank!

To end the day, we took the train ride! They were pretty wiped out at this point. Landry fell asleep after two minutes in the car! Another successful day at the zoo!

First Day of Kinder

Addison was very excited about today! She and mommy went to Schlitterbahn yesterday and played in the water all day. She was exhausted and had a good night's sleep! I woke her up at 7:00 am and she ate her breakfast and got ready. We took a few pics while daddy loaded up the twins and then we were off. She was greeted by her friend Corey as soon as she entered the school. Understandably, she didn't remember where her teacher's classroom was! There were a lot of people there and it can be very confusing for a five year old! She was very excited to see two friends from her Montessori school! It's nice when you know someone!

Looking forward to making lots of memories her Kindergarten year!
