Bowen really enjoyed turkey this year. Unfortunatley, that's all that we could get him to eat. No sides, just turkey. Mimi gave him a beautiful turkey sugar cookie after dinner that he truly enjoyed. Caroline ate pears and sweet potatoes (baby food) for her Thanksgiving meal. She's so ready to eat the real deal. She stares at our food with admiration and will grab at your spoon or fork if she's sitting in your lap.
Bowen brought along his indian head dress, drum and necklace that he created at school. Each preschooler was given a Native American name. Bowen's was "Laughing Eyes". When we ask him to show us his "laughing eyes", he tries to raise his eyebrows. He moves his eyes all over the place in an attempt to move his eyebrows.
Good Little Indian...
Bad Little Indian...

The photographer's assistant was dancing around so much to make Bowen smile that Caroline got super serious. I'm sure she was thinking...just smile brother. Make this guy stop acting like a fool.

We headed to Tampa for a quick visit with Mimi and Papa. Bowen enjoys running around his Mimi and Papa's backyard. He was thrilled that he got to play some soccer with Daddy, Uncle John and Weston on real soccer fields during his visit to Tampa. He ran in to the house yelling, "I PAYED SOCCAH BALL"!!!!!
Mimi and Papa gave Bowen and Caroline The Elf of the Shelf (book and elf). Bowen named the Elf "Elfie". Each morning Bowen searches our house for Elfie's new observation point. He's been spotted in the china cabinet and on top of the refrigerator. Where will he be next??? Elfie is watching to see if everyone is being naughty or nice and will report back to Santa.
Look at me! I'm nice! I'm nice!

Bowen is SUPER in love with horses right now. When the horses were loaded off the trailer and in to Kaila's backyard, he kept saying, "oh my goodness, oh my goodness" with a HUGE smile on this face. We have several horse ranches around the house here in Windermere. Daily we pull over (off the road) to come face to face with our neighborly horses. Bowen can spot a horse a mile away and is ready for mom to stop the car to say his hellos.
It's party time!
The birthday girl!!!!
Bowen and Evan getting warmed up for a real horse ride.
Evan (Spider Man) found the face-painting booth
Kaila takes her first ride on the pony! Each cowboy and cowgirl got their very own hat (hanging on the fence).
Side saddle would be so appropriate
