Happy 5th Birthday!!!!!

About 5 months ago Natalie turned 5.  Maybe someday I'll get back to keeping this blog caught up, but I doubt it.  My girl just keeps me too busy.

Natalie had her 5th birthday party at the Museum of Discovery again and like last year she chose to have a safari party. This year the animals she chose were an albino corn snake, a chinchilla, a black rabbit, an insect from Australia called a prickly stick, and I think the other animal was a lizard of some sort.

There were 20 children in Natalie's Pre-K class, but we didn't have space for all of them.  I let Natalie choose who to invite and she cracked me up by making her choices based on how the children behave in school.  Two children were eliminated because "they don't listen to the teacher".  Another was mean to other children.  Natalie is usually a rule follower and she wants others around her to do the same.

Everyone had a wonderful time.  Natalie was a very happy birthday girl!

Natalie is fascinated by snakes.  Her favorites are King snakes and Rattlesnakes.

Natalie wasn't scared to touch this big prickly stick.

Happy Birthday Precious Natalie!!

Busy Girls

Natalie and I have been so extremely busy that I haven't had time to post to our blog in ages, so brace yourself for a TON of pictures.

Natalie with her school project turkey that we made together.  Each feather of the turkey shows things she is thankful for.
During a reenactment of the first Thanksgiving each child chose their own Indian name.  Natalie chose "Cooking Owl" :)  Also, note Natalie's entry on the chart in the background.
Another school project... a funny one, especially for a vegetarian

Pizza anyone?
In early December we went to Natalie's Greatgrandmother's house to visit with her and my Dad, Natalie's Grandaddy.  We had a wonderful time.  It makes me happy to see Natalie having wonderful times with people that I love so much.
