It is amazing how time flies... the year has come and almost gone. We in the Childs household are looking forward to good holiday food and the basketball season (go Heels! ~don't tell Micah!!!). We have also enjoyed the cool weather and beautiful fall foliage. Anticipating the business of the approaching holidays, I recently pulled out my Christmas decorations so I could get ahead. Andrew loves the nut"crackers" and lights. ~Yes Cara, it gets earlier and earlier every year!
Micah has just a couple of assignments to complete and finals and his semester will be over. Yeah!!! Until he begins again in the Spring~
Andrew's favorite phrase right now is "I know, Mommy". He really does think he knows just about everything, so he says. How does he have such confidence? I know from experience, it must be in his genes. He had a good time at our church's fall festival last week. He enjoyed the cake walk and winning prizes-- one prize was a pack of plastic bugs. He loves these ugly bugs. If you don't already know, I am terrified of bugs and having these things greet me in random places around our home is making me crazy. I am sure that soon I will pick one up, thinking it is a plastic one when in fact it will be real. No girls besides me in this house, that's for sure!
Elijah is growing and growing. When he smiles, he smiles with every inch of his little 13.5 pound body. He is at a precious age.
The boys and I will be traveling to NC the day after Thanksgiving to celebrate my brother, Matt being recognized as an Eagle Scout. Congratulations Uncle Matt!
