Eliza Grace's Baptism

On November 6th Eliza Grace was baptised as a covenant child in our church.  It was such a special way to celebrate Orphan Sunday as she and our friend Betsy were baptised by our families as a sign of the covenant that we have with Lord and as further proof that they are orphans no more!  She and Miller wore their beautiful hanboks and got many sweet compliments.  What a great day for our family!

November 2011

 Silly sisters in their turkey clothes enjoying our beautiful fall weather.  These girls LOVE riding bikes (or scooters or wagons or skates)!

 I love this series of the girls playing at sunset on the playground at our school while Wilson was at football practice.  So fun!

 Watching big brother play soccer

 Miller at Disney on Ice with her preschool class
 No one knows it yet, but WE'RE GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!! Mom started practicing with the backpack leash and Eliza Grace thought it was hilarious!

 Happy birthday Dad!  Thirty-three is looking pretty good.

 Eliza Grace's first American Thanksgiving- pumpkin pie was a hit!

Eliza Grace's first movie on the "big scream" (as Miller calls it)- the Muppets.  She loved it and now screams "bumpets! bumpets!" EVERY time we get in the car- meaning she wants to listen to (and sing along with!) the sound track!

Playtime in October

Bomgar Backyard Burger Bash
Basically Daddy's company picnic, but the picinic is Backyard Burger brings a grill cooks dinner- yum!

This balloon guy is so much fun- we love his veggie tale get up!  The girls had so much fun going back over and over again to get new balloon sculptures!
Eliza Grace was also a big fan of her own personal bag of Cheetos!
EG has apparently been taking fashion lessons from her sister and is completely proud of it!
watching Wilson play flag football
Eliza Grace with her buddy Jane Riley (these South Koreans are officially Southern with their double names!)  Jane Riley is a Holt baby, as well and is one year older that Eliza Grace.  They've had so much fun getting to know each other!
Welcome home Betsy- all the way from Russia, finally!!!

Eliza Grace and her partner in crime, Mabry, playing in the dirt.  Yes, there is a WHOLE playground that they are looking at, but dumping dirt on each other's heads is, of course, much more fun!

Meeting Aunt Lauren for the first time.  Putting her English degree to it's test with a board book!

Miller and Caroline soaking in the State Fair

Eliza Grace's first craft!!  We had so much fun doing her handprint art.
