Thanksgiving 2009

The Frost family loves to eat, so Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday. We started off with lunch at Aunt Darcell's. We had lots of good food and had a chance to visit with Darnel's side of the family. We then headed to Mama and Papa's house for dinner. This is always fun with so many people and now 2 more grandchildren.

Girls Dance Shows

When Taylor joined the competition line at the Dance Studio we knew we were in for a lot of performances, especially around the holidays. Now with Laney on a competition line as well we have both girls to run to the performances which luckily are usually at the same time and place except for a few. This year the girls danced at the Train Station, a Retirement Home and a Nursery. We had a lot of fun watching them dance and show off all they've learned in just a few months.

Polar Express

We knew with Trey's love of trains we had to include the Polar Express train ride in our Holiday Plans. The Polar Express train was going to be in Monticello, Il. It was 3 hours away, but we thought it would be well worth the trip. The kids had no idea where we were going. We headed out around 2 pm the Saturday after Thanksgiving with our family in one van and my parents, Steph, Dane, Kara and Claire in the other van. We made one bathroom stop on the way and arrived in Monticello around 5:45pm. We were going to stop at a nice restaurant, but with our stop and traffic from an accident we had just enough time for Hardee's. We went in and ordered food and then told the kids where we were going. They were so excited. After we ate we took the kids to the car to get their PJs on for the train. The train ride was wonderful! They served snacks and hot chocolate, danced in the aisles and sang Christmas songs. At the end Santa made his way through the train giving each boy and girl a bell. It was such a great way to start the holidays.

Turkey Trot

Every year on the last day of school before Thanksgiving the students at the Middle school have a Turkey Trot. I still remember the first year Taylor was at the middle school. The students sign up to run or walk the event. Since Taylor does Track Camp every summer and loves to run I decided to wait at the finish line and get a picture of her finishing. As I stood there her teacher walked up and we started talking. I then said I was waiting to get a picture of Taylor. She said, "Taylor didn't run she walked". WHAT, I send her to track camp every year. Her teacher said if she would have known that, she would have made her run. She said the track coaches son tried to sign up as a walker since a lot of his friends were walking but she insisted he run. This year, she ran. She was totally embarrassed when she saw me standing on the side of the street taking her picture.

City Boy!

Today Trey came in my room dressed as a cowboy. He had a cowboy hat, jeans, his buffalo on a stick and cow boy boots. He looked at me and said, "Mom can you help me zip my cow boy SHOES." Only a city boy calls cowboy boots shoes.

Nutrition Lesson from a 7 year old!

Everyday when I pick Delaney up from school I ask, "How was your Day?" Today I got a lot more info than usual. She said, "According to the movie we watched in PE today, you do not feed me enough fruit." She continued to say, "You also give me too much meat, I should only have meat the size of my palm." Makes me feel like I lost the Mom of the Year Award!
