After daddy got the lights on the tree, the kids went to town decorating. Avery was really into it but after about 5 minutes, Griffin moved on to other activities! (like pulling ornaments off the tree...and "accidentally" throwing balls into the tree...)

and I think I'm 2 1/2 - 3 years here...
Earlier in the week, Brent and I went out to eat at a Vietnamese and Chinese joint here called Jujube while Gammy stayed home with all the kids. This was our first childless night out in a long time!

(I should preface this post by saying that when I came down stairs this morning after taking a shower, I discovered that Avery and Griffin had each eaten several cupcakes! They had actually stayed in the kitchen with them and gotten out a washcloth and attempted to clean themselves off!)
here is the whole class...griffin, avery, hannah, luke, brendan, emma, leslie, and camryn

Last night Griffin and I went to the grocery store so that he could pick out his cake mix, frosting, and sprinkles - per his request! And then this morning, Avery and Griffin helped make the cupcakes. I managed to frost them myself while the kids were occupied elsewhere but then let them do the sprinkles.

Brent ran his first half-marathon this morning and did great! His final chip time was 1:46.15, his pace was 8:07/mile, and his rank was 279/2168. His goal was to finish in less than 2 hours so he did really well. Not to mention that it was 30 degrees out this morning! The kids and I were able to make it to see him cross the finish line.
Here we are, watching and cheering for each runner as they went by. Griffin was more into wandering around and collecting acorns - but Avery was really excited to cheer for the runners, especially if it was a girl! ("mom, mom, I see another girl coming!")I told Brent that he had to wear bright red for the next race - I got my camera ready every time I saw someone coming in black shorts and a white shirt!! But here he comes, front and center!

This is Brendan - one of Griffin's good buddies at school. They would only let me take their picture if they could "be silly!"
Here's the G-man enjoying his snack with Emma and her older brother Aiden.
