Gingerbread houses and a black eye

Yep, we got both around here :)
Samy and I joined Isaac's class yesterday to make gingerbread houses.  The 8th grade had come in to help and I found Isaac sitting with Elliot, one of the boys we take to school everyday.  Fun to see them working together :)  Samy and I tackled a second house for her.  Lots of fun and plenty of sugar consumed!

And on Tuesday in gym class Isaac got a black eye.  His friend, Colon, who is sitting next to him in the pictures below, ran into him playing Sharks and Minnows.  He came home really swollen and it turned purple the next day.  What a shiner!!

 Isaac and Elliot seeing how much candy they could get on there!

Samy's House 
 This is something Isaac had done in class and is displayed in the hallway.  If you can't read it, it says, "Dear Jesus, I am thankful for Samy."  :)
 And here's some pictures of the black eye and my goofy kids :)

So add a few to the joy list:
# 47 Building gingerbread houses with the kids at school.
# 48 Watching Isaac have fun working with Elliot!
# 49 Isaac's gratefulness for his little sister :)
# 50 Watching the kiddos ham it up for the camera!


  1. I love, love, love reading your updates and seeing your pictures. I can't believe Isaac is SO big. And Samy is, too! Love ya!

  2. Is it possible for me to both love and hate your blog? I love it because I love you, but I hate it because it makes me miss you:(
