Moving to a new place, you have to find entirely new traditions! So today we started by doing school. The motivator to finish was carving pumpkins.
The group was less than cooperative when it came to snapping photos.
|Opening family gifts.|
|Ignore the Christmas paper....it's a birthday.|
|Putting together a new Playmobil castle|
|Our tradition is to request whatever we want for our Birthday Dinner. Sam picked Sausage, black eyed peas, and broccoli. Love him! Look at our actress beside him. A lot of personality there!|
|We had cupcakes that night|
|We had a sword and the stone cake|
|This was our little pink princess whom the knights were called to defend|
|Each child painted their own shield.|
|There were lots of battles in our back yard.....|
|Then a picnic on the lawn|
|Daddy added handles to make them truly useful|
|Then we had a jousting practice, which involved a roll of duct tape and a string as our ring, and a dow rod as our jousting stick.|
|We had an unruly two wheeled horse that was a bit less tame than our three wheeled horse.|
|The army and the damsels in distress|
