Thanksgiving and Christmas

I have some catching up to do!  The holidays were really busy between church, Stephen's finals, and 
nannying.  But we had tons of fun and lots of new memories.  At Thanksgiving, Stephen's cousin Parker came to visit.  We went to the Botanical gardens, the Arch and the Magic House together.  Parker even went to the very top of the Arch!  Davy was sad to see him leave, and asks to go to Parker's house frequently.  

Drink break at the Magic House
 To get into the Christmas mood we had a Gingerbread House party.  It was a lot of fun and the kids did surprisingly well decorating.  Davy made sure to add door knobs so the gingermen could get through.  I learned that hot glue holds houses together a lot better than frosting.
 Christmas morning--Davy contemplates his stocking orange and assortment of diggers.
 Palling around with cousins.  He asked Jason to bury his feet and Jason was very methodical.
 Digging for pirate treasure!  Davy remembers Jason really well.  Last night he prayed for mommy, daddy, underwear, and Jason.
Davy loved hanging out with his cousins.  We missed snapping a picture of him and Madeleine, we will have to visit Dallas soon! Thanks for the fun Christmas!
