We had the best kind of visitors this month…Grandparents.   

The kids were in heaven with willing game players and book readers.  And of course getting to cruise around Target in their preferred way.  

The kids introduced Nana and Opa to Museum of Natural Curiosity.  

We got together with the Lake Jackson people and Ruby and Wren were thrilled to get to hang out multiple times this month.  

This is only one of Ruby and Wren’s matching outfits.  They obviously have good style.  

A highlight of the week…Christmas number 1.  

The kids were pretty sad when Nana and Opa left to go home. Luckily they only had to survive a week before my parents came into town.

It was my mom’s birthday while they were here, so I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to throw her a surprise Cookie Monster Birthday Party.

The kids were so excited to surprise Nana when she walked in from the airport. 

It was a pretty awesome party and we were all quite happy we finally got to spend a birthday with her.  

Nana and Pop-Pop of course wanted to see The Museum of Natural Curiosity too, and we did not object to going again.  

Having 4 adults for 4 kids, made it so I could actually follow Macey around and see what she loves to do there.  

Her favorite is falling through this tower of ropes, it’s pretty crazy to watch how fast she comes down.  

We of course had to have a “hang like a sloth” competition.  

Once again, I did not get to participate, as I was carrying a baby.  Perhaps someday.  

Crew spent lots of time sword fighting with Pop-Pop.  I’m sure he’s got some bruises to show for it, as Crew is quite the intense swordsmen.  

My mom and I did a lot of shopping and I got to introduce her to the awesomeness that is Anthropology.  On the way up we stopped to play at Scheels.  

We had big plans to introduce my parents to some of our new favorite food places, but the stomach bug hit.  This obviously put a damper on some of our plans.  

Luckily, we were still able to take them to Cubby’s, although we will have to go back on their next visit, so my mom can more fully enjoy the wonderfulness of their food.  

The kid also got to experience Christmas #2, with their first visit to Build-A-Bear.  

They loved it and all 3 animals have been constant companions since.  

And Macey surprised Nana and Pop-Pop with self portraits made from Perler Beads.  It is a specialty of hers.  

And that is why I think November wins for The Navasard Children’s favorite month of the year.
