Another great night at the Foundry Centre for the family. D and D coloring their Christmas box. The Centre had four stations. Pipe cleaner ornament, wreath making, air dried clay ornament and these tiny little boxes. They both took alot of time to get it just right.

R and I visited the Celebration of lights the other night. We did the walk thru. One night during the season, instead of driving thru you get walk and see the lights closer. There are craft vendors, hot chocolate, music, the lights, and fireworks!
We were lucky; it had rained all day but stopped as we arrived. I especially like this! O'fallon's own Loch Ness Nessie wearing a Santa hat.

Again a little late showing Thanksgiving celebration, but I've been busy finishing up my painting of my house. I'm almost finished with the painting yaaaaaaa. Little Miss M is above with her turkey bib on her first Thanksgiving.
some of the kids of the family doing Christmas crafts. Each year I try to get a craft kit that all the different ages can do. B and N are the oldest and they were very helpful to the little kids. It was 60 degrees on Thanksgiving so the kids were able to play outside and do their crafts in the garage.
