Rainy Morning

Well. It is a cold and rainy day here in South Korea. The perfect day to stay in and get caught up with things, you know, things like a blog I have been ignoring for about 6 months.

Sorry. :(

Life has gotten away from me, and things like facebook have made it too easy to communicate. Things I have learned: I don't really enjoy writing as a craft, but I love to talk! So this blog may be a little less wordy than it used to be, but at least you will get to see some pictures of our adventures here in Korea. Oh, and we really haven't had very many adventures yet so you haven't missed much. Again with the life getting away from us.

So here it goes! I am going to do my best to get caught up this month.

No promises.

ps. make sure you go back to June to see all the updates.

Gobble till you Wobble!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year! It started with the Squadron Thanksgiving feast on Wednesday.

Ryan said a few words to start everything off.

And then everyone ate. They had a ton of good food and it was nice to be able to chat with a lot of our young airman and thank them for all they do.

Then we hosted Thanksgiving at our house for a few of our friends.

We had 3 other families come over so there was a total of 16 people. Our apartment is tiny so it was a very cozy gathering!

It was fun, we had an adult table and a kids table. The kids had a blast sitting together.

The guys enjoyed some Scotch after dinner.

And I had lots of help in the kitchen getting things cleaned up.

It was a wonderful day, and we are so thankful the Lord has provided an Air Force family for us yet again.

A moment.....

I love that my kids are best friends. But this year they have begun fighting and just in general trying to bother each other. This is new for us and we are still figuring out how to deal with this.

BUT, they still love each other and can be so sweet together. I managed to capture one of those moments.

These kids are keeping me running! Calvin did Soccer,

And then Basketball.

He loved them both, but showed real talent in basketball. He is quite the flashy little point guard!

And Alayna is doing ballet

and cheerleading.

She is loving both! I guess the apple didn't fall too far there. :)

Trick or Treat

Halloween was fun this year. At school they were able to dress up as a storybook character and then did a parade for all the parents.

Alayna was Aurora. (Sleeping Beauty for those who don't have little princesses at home)

And Calvin was Superman.

Then when it was time for trick or treating that evening Calvin changed his costume to Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers.

It was different trick or treating in a apartment tower instead of a neighborhood, but the kids got a lot of candy in a short amount of time!

(See how the pink cast matches the pink dress!)
