October and Halloween

Lucy dressed as a voodoo doll for Halloween night and at school they had a "literary" theme for their annual parade. Lucy was Ivy from one of her favorite books "Ivy and Bean". Her friend Sylvie was Bean with her. They looked so cute! Ruby was a lady bug. She had her first major night of trick or treating and she loved it! She was unsure about having to wear a costume at first, but once she started getting candy she was way into it!

Ivy from Book 1 of Ivy and Bean

This is an owl and nest that Lucy made in art class.

Each year her art teacher does a "Super Hero" project. They learn about how to draw the human body and they get to be creative and make up their own female super hero. Here is Lucy's from this year.

Ruby has been loving school too! Her teacher sent me this picture and it clued me in to why she was coming home with dirt in her hair! She's like a little bird taking a dust bath...

Hello Moon

Here is Lucy at a Star Party one of our neighbors had. It was the coolest thing... He brought out all his amazing telescopes and shined them up to distant galaxies and far off stars and things called a ring nebula and binary stars. It gave me such a feeling of perspective of how small we are.

Hmm..let me go see what other pictures I can post:
Here's a flashback to 2 years ago, when Ruby was a baby and Lucy was not yet 5.

Here's a pic from this year's 4th of July parade. Lucy was a pioneer and Ruby was a Texas Bluebonnet. Not that anyone guessed, but I thought she looked cute!

Here is when Katie visited and Ruby didn't want to take a picture at the Orly Genger sculpture at Laguna Gloria. 

Well, that's all for now! Hopefully I'll be back before a year to check in! : )

Lucy on the Violin

Here are a few pictures of Lucy from her winter concert at school in December. I love seeing her play her tiny violin! She seems to really like playing too.
