1. We had our first family homework assignment from Alaina's class this week. We were supposed to dress up a turkey (paper turkey, of course) in order to help it sail through the Thanksgiving holiday without being eaten. The assignment said to dress it up like it fits into your family, so to consider hobbies and things like that. Well, since we are The Most Boring Family On The Planet the only thing we could think of was to dress the turkey like a baby, since we have a baby in our family. We put an old (unused) size 2 diaper on it and tied a binky around its neck. Apparently seeing the diaper on the turkey cracked the kids up, according to Alaina. It's always nice to get a laugh out of the class.

3. Then there's Alaina, who never wants to rock the boat, fashion-wise. Even on a night like Crazy Hair Night at AWANA. I forced her to participate this year. She wasn't too happy.

4. Bria has been super crabby all week. Super bummer for us. Maybe she's teething. Who knows. All I know that 3:30 until 5:00 is a nightmare. Then I put her down for a dinner nap, which I thought we were getting rid of, but not if she's going to be crabby. I can't remember when they drop that nap, but I'm going to put her in her room if all she wants to do is fuss. She falls asleep quickly most of the time, so maybe she still needs it. Hopefully this phase ends soon.
