Happy Third Birthday Kendall!

Today is your third birthday Kendall. I feel like I blinked and you're now three. It has gone by so fast. I hope you enjoyed your third birthday! We went to the zoo today because you love the animals. We had a lot of fun! It was quiet and the rain held off so we could have a beautiful day! Happy Third Birthday sweet girl!

Dora the Explorer cake

Gary made Kendall's birthday cake for her party. It was a "Dora the Explorer" theme which Kendall chose. And she asked Daddy to make her a Dora cake. It looked and tasted great! A friend of mine commented that it looked like me!!!

Kendall celebrated her third birthday at the park with a "Dora the Explorer" birthday party. We invited her friends, grandparents, Auntie and Uncle Jeff. We had a birthday cake pinata filled with candy which the kids bashed with a plastic bat. Kendall got lots of Dora toys, clothes, and purses. It was a fun filled third birthday party!

Zoo Lights

On Thursday evening December 16th we visited zoo lights. It's our 2nd annual Moran family zoo lights! This year it was our family, Grandma and Auntie. We had a lot of fun. Kendall was mesmerized by Jenga the talking giraffe. She stood there and listened and didn't want to leave. She asked me what the giraffe was doing there! She was probably confused why Jenga wasn't with the other giraffes! She kept asking to see the animals and was happy to see the otters and camels. It had been raining all day and cleared around 6:00 p.m. There were no crowds at zoo lights and it was easy to walk around and see everything.

Evan's Reconciliation

Evan celebrated his first Reconciliation on Thursday, December 9th at St Rose. Gary took him because Blake was home sick. They celebrated afterwards with a chocolate explosion blizzard from Dairy Queen. You can see Evan's chocolate lips in the "praying" photo! Evan will celebrate his Holy Communion and Confirmation the Spring of 2012. God Bless Evan!

ABC's of the First Thanksgiving Play

Evan's second grade class presented the "ABCs of the First Thanksgiving" play today. Each child had a letter and they spoke their lines. Evan had "N" is "November there was plenty to eat no one will be hungry this winter" and "Z" is for zany the children act zany running all around with their new friends. They had a wonderful time."  After the play each child presented his or her "Thankful" poster that they made at home with their family. It was cute to hear what each child was thankful for. Evan was thankful for his family, friends, food, car, God, football, and basketball!
