November 2011

November 2011 kept our schedules busy too! Looking back it is a wonder we did so much! Among our regular activities of playdates, work, MOPS, youth group, church, Bible studies, meetings, and the like Adam was also tested and ordained by our church. It required a whole morning of questioning by pastors in our area and included our pastor from our church back home. It was quite a grueling process and Adam came out wonderfully.

Grammy and PopPop came to visit for the event and then we went home for Thanksgiving so we had lots of family love.

Penny is quite a Miss Thing. She is very strong willed and has been prone to throwing fits. So I had to include this one.

But she can also be the happiest person around and is very much a girl in she likes to "shop" (here with a shopping bag I crocheted for a friend) and likes to pick out her clothes and especially has a thing for shoes!

Max is always creating new ways to keep us on our toes. He is often pretending to be someone other than Max (but house rules are that you always have to be yourself at the dinner table, just so you know). Here he is riding his beloved stuffed rhino Graca.
(Little known fact: Graca is named after the church that I visited in Porto Portugal Communidade de Graca in college. Adam got me Graca upon my return. Max adopted him when he was 1 and had slept with him ever since.)
