Quick Visit

We were blessed with another short but sweet visit with grandparents ... this time with Memere and Pepere!

(Little Man refused to be in the picture. It was not his best morning.)

Memere and Pepere will be back pretty soon, because Pepere just bought a new car here, and will have to come back to get it! Lucky us!

Future Architect?

Check out what Little Man built last weekend!

He did this entirely on his own. He never told us he was building anything; he just sat down at the kitchen table with a ton of construction paper and markers and tape, and kept working. 

He was so proud to show it to us. "Look -- it's Oklahoma's stadium, when Army played them and almost won!"

(Truth. Army went to overtime with Oklahoma earlier this season -- who was supposed to win by over 30 points.)

I was really impressed with his focus and his attention to detail. He identified the red zone, drew the OU logo perfectly, and figured out how to make the stands stay upright by themselves. I also love how he spelled "Oklahoma"!

Oh Christmas Tree

Saturday morning we went to the Christmas tree lot at our parish to purchase the 2018 Morrison Tree.

Little Man was a tad upset that we didn't pick the tree he wanted.

But he cheered up yesterday morning, as we decked the halls in our post-Army-win glow, when he realized it was his turn to put the star on top of the tree.

Go Army! Beat Navy!

Army wins again! It's a three-year streak!

We were hoping to attend the Army-Navy game again this year, but with MJ's back issues, traveling is not an option. But we watched it happily from our family room, with the kids cheering and watching along with us, and had a great day.

Amber didn't seem at all confused about the hoopla. I'm sure she's become accustomed to the commotion that football games in the Morrison household involve.

Fancy Pants

The kids have been entertaining me lately with their clothing choices.

CC was purple-icious the other day, from her boots all the way to her backpack.

Little Man discovered the Army hats we bought when we took the kids to West Point two years ago, and has been wearing his night and day.

Sweet Pea became the first Morrison girl to wear uniform pants to school.

(CC will only wear dresses and skirts, and Sweet Pea used to have the same rule until this week. And go figure -- now CC wants some pants, too)
