Friday both Meg and Spencer received an award at school. Meg got an award for outstanding citizen, and Spencer got an award for academic excellence. We are very proud of both of them for their hard work.
We celebrated Meg’s birthday this year with a surprise party / sleepover. She requested a surprise party this year. Every once in awhile we would ask her what kind of cake she wanted or something, and she would reply “I’m not having a party this year, unless someone throws me a surprise party ;).” The surprise mostly worked, although some of her friends spilled the beans during school. Clare led the girls in making bath bombs. Sarah did the girls nails. We had pizza and got out the chocolate fountatin. They all had a great time.
For her actual birthday Dave and Ellen came over and we had ravioli and lemon cake with chocolate frosting.
Spencer turned 9 yesterday! On Monday we had a party at Boondocks fun center with his friends. Yesterday we celebrated at home. He wanted to make grilled cheese and an ice cream cake, so that is what we did. He is getting pretty good at making grilled cheese.
We had a bit of a fight about going to sax lessons on his birthday, but eventually he acquiesced, and his teacher taught him happy birthday, which he picked up quite quickly
Grandma and grandpa Dibble hosted Thanksgiving which included the Fedibbletys as well as Aunt Jean and Grandma Grand. We enjoyed a lovely meal and had many different opportunities and different ways to share things we were grateful for throughout the meal. With Meg was leading a clapping grace in the middle of the meal, Grandma Grand asked if it was over yet. A good time was had by all!
