During some free time after dinner, we decided to hang out with the girls outside and look at the sun setting and the moon rising. It was so pretty. The girls started playing Simon Says, and before too long they were mimicking Michael Jackson. It was so very funny!
The girls all had breakfast in Evan's bed our last morning at camp. We packed up, cleaned up and then rounded everyone up for a group picture. These girls' ages range from 6 to 9, but they all get along quite well. Evan discovered Brain Quest cards and fell in love with them.
The weekend before Thanksgiving Evan and I went to the Jimmie Davis State Park for a two night Girl Scout Camp. We met up with our troop about 45 minutes away, and then drove in together. I was following my GPS for directions, and we ended up at the end of a dirt road with dogs barking and running after us. Feeling like we were about to have a "Wrong Turn" experience, I turned around in the middle of a chicken farm. We got back on track a made it to the camp around 9pm.
The next morning we had a wonderful breakfast burrito. Funny how food always tastes much better when you are camping. Of course, it has been a long time since I've been camping. The first part of the day was filled with crafts. The girls got to make a cute apron, chocolate spoons, cool ornaments and reindeer food.

this year I was determined to fit this activity in. The girls enjoyed
it, and Sydney loved licking the candy. I'm sure the candy will
disappear if I don't put it out of her reach.

the red suit. I haven't heard that desperate a cry since she was
first handed to me a little over 5 months ago. I made her squat with
me beside Santa so we could record this moment for posterity. We have
Breakfast with Santa scheduled next week, so we'll see how quickly she
gets over this fear!
