Can you find the child in this picture?

Caden is fond of the "I Spy" books. Here he is the subject of a similar search.

Can you find:

Big Bird?

A frog?

A colorful turkey?

A 5-year old human?

Now you get the idea.   I Spy books by Scholastic

JR Moore & Sons General Store - Gulf, NC

We finished up our Christmas shopping at J.R. Moore & Sons just a few miles up the road from our house in Gulf, NC. This was the sole store that I shopped in this year as I looked online for all of my shopping needs. Stacie, however, has essentially been Christmas shopping since June in stores throughout the southeast. She's a bargain hunter.

If I could, I would choose to live somewhere so far out that a place like JR Moore would be the closest thing to a Walmart within 100 miles.

Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir - 'Lux Aurumque'

There are 14 different countries represented. Each of the singers are coming through on a live feed with their webcam and microphone. Pretty awesome.

What shade of red is your neck?

The boys picked up some awesome hats at their Gigi's house. They pretty much love 'em. These hats belonged to my father, which means the boys will keep them forever.

Check Caden's STP hat. He's sporting' it with the "farmer's tilt."

They look like they are ready to do some hunting. I think I'll start taking Gabe and Ethan next year. If only I can talk Stacie in to eating some venison...

Homeschool Bowling

After two frames our 5-year old is beating Ethan and me by a pin. Sigh.
