Random November Pictures

One day, I was babysitting Olivia.  My visiting teachers came to visit and Olivia and Noah were, I thought, just playing in the kids bedroom.  Well, they were actually tearing my bedroom apart.  They had thrown most of the blankets on the floor, pulled the mattress part way onto the floor and were sliding down it. 

 Lots of cat pictures, because he's just so cute!

 Dexter loves getting in the laundry basket when I empty it.  He'll knock it over and roll it around the house or sometimes he'll hide in it and when you walk by, he jumps out and taps you with his paw.
Chad is probably going to strangle me when he sees these pictures, but they were just too cool, not to share!  November is Movember, right, so Chad grew out his beard, but then wanted to shave for our anniversary, so he did some creating shaving, before getting rid of it all the way.   
 And then he remembered how his Dad use to use mascara to darken his mustache, so he thought he'd give it a try.  Much laughter ensued...

Please don't be mad... =)

  More of the Cat.
 Lexi has lost a lot of teeth in a short amount of time!  Several of which she's pulled out herself.  She's such a cutie!
 As I went through the pictures on the camera this month, it was quickly apparent that Noah had gotten a hold of it and had gone to town.  He'd taken around 50 pictures, close-ups of the couch, the wall, the cat, and blurry images across the room of the other wall.  How did I know he took these pictures?  Because half of them were of this view, his feet.  Haha!
 and another cat picture.

Messy Hair!
And we'll end with another cat picture...

10 Years!

On November 15th, 2013, Chad and I celebrated 10 years of marriage!  So hard to believe so much time has gone by.  During that time, we've lived in 7 different places, we've had 3 kids, 4 cars, 2 pets, moved to Europe, and have enjoyed 10 years of wonderful time together.  On our anniversary, Chad took the day off, we dropped the kids off at school and then headed into Copenhagen to the Thorvaldsen Museum.  Chad hadn't been there before and it seemed a perfect opportunity to explore it together.  We had the place mostly to ourselves, it was great!  We enjoyed walking around the city and spending time together.  That afternoon, we had to go home to pick up the kids, but we were able to get a babysitter for a couple of hours so we could go out to eat.  It was a fantastic dinner and just a really fun night out.  We made it home in time to put the kids to bed, cook up some popcorn and watch a movie together.  It was a pretty low-key anniversary, but as Chad said, "I took you to Europe for our 10th anniversary."  Haha!

Fighting in the Woods

Røllespil or Role Playing, is very popular in Denmark.  At least twice a year, the kids all head up to the woods and gather with several other schools for 3 days of "fighting" in the woods.  They dress up in typically medieval garb, sometimes they have princesses, fairies, angels, goblins, monsters and other things. I think it's structured, some how, but mostly, it just looks like absolute chaos.  100's of young kids chasing each other through the woods with fake swords and pixie dust.  It's something that would never fly in the US, but honestly, it seems like so much fun.  I'm so glad my kids are having these experiences.  Well, this November, we were having great weather and so they put together a small scale røllespil with the kids at the school.  It was just in the surrounding wooded area, so I was able to go over and take a few pictures.  Don't the kids look like they are having so much fun?  Love it!

The Glyptotek

Now that we have morning church again, we thought it would be a fun outing to go to the Glyptotek after church one Sunday.  It's free on Sunday's, so we thought it would be a perfect outing.  We really like this museum, the statues are so neat.  Here is a link to our last visit.  And for some reason, I didn't include a link to the wikipedia page last time, in case you are interested in the history of the Glyptotek.  Anyway...  It was a fun, quick visit.  We quickly realized that our church shoes weren't that great for walking extended distances and everyone's feet quickly got tired out.  But, it was a fun outing. 

Aren't these kiddo's so cute?

 For some reason, the kids really like these 2 Medusa Statues.  I think they find the snakes as hair fascinating.
