December Catchup

Here are some photos from the beginning of December, after we got back from our trip, to catch up the rest of the way.

Grandpa displaying the wonders of spray cheese




We are supposed to help a kindergartner learn these English lines for a play.


Andrew's new hobby: reading science books.

I guess these were actually from the end of November when we decorated the tree.

Christmas crafts




Abigail was singing her own version of an all Christmas songs mashup

Cookies!


Before moving here I never once thought about adjust baking temps or times based on room temperature.





Reading Lego magazines. Thanks grandparents!




Strong Daddy

Time to get out more pencils when this is all that can be located

"Let's arm-wrestle!"


Let's cuddle/Mommy is a magnet


Alexander helping make guacamole.
We found avocados (called alligator pears here) recently and
guacamole was really good after not having it for over two years.




Winterizing

Getting ready for the wedding





We had such great weather in November


Shelling peas

Trying out the brand new KFC IN TOWN!
We scared them.


It was packed!



Aaron building a tank



Geography

Memory work

Alexander's friends drawing

Coconut is such a great food, but also a lot of work.

Corn, cabbage, pumpkin, and mushroom cookies.
The US has candy corn, why not?


This kid happily watching hours and hours of chess from the world chess championship.
"I don't think it is fair to decide the #1 rated classical chess player based on tiebreaks that are fast chess."

Science Experiment: Making "Orange Soda"


This was our Thanksgiving dinner.
Friends brought the "pork nuggets."

Thanksgiving breakfast

If you have a doughnut once or twice a year you might as well make it a
"CHOC-O-LATE"
one. And pronounce all three syllables because you are so excited.


A few of these eggs are from black bone chickens.
Their shells are different but everything else is the same.

Decorating our tree



English kids


"I am the fighting king."
And the only girl amongst three brothers clearly.

Making friends


This inspired Andrew to extra language study.





Such great weather in November!
