Wendy's family and Colleen came in town for our Pistorius Christmas. Lisa's family was unable to come because she had her baby :) We had a lot of fun exchanging gifts which we did just among our two families and of course, making ginger bread houses with lots of candy. Colleen gave me a Christus statue which I wanted for our piano and she gave the kids lego sets. Drew got a new game, Blokus, Dilan got a new Barbie, and Drake got a ninja turtle that he loved and carried around for days. That night we went to Christmas on the square at Frisco square. It was cold but a lot of fun eating pizza slices, listening to a choir sing, seeing the lights, petting a real reindeer, tossing bean bags for free Cane's chicken finger meals, and taking pictures with various costumed characters.
We had a great Thanksgiving at Damon and Amy's house. Lots of great food and we brought rolls and made potatoes like we usually do. Drake said the blessing this year and it was so funny. He thanked God for being able to play upstairs and eat downstairs. Everyone started laughing and I was so proud that our 4 year old little boy could say a blessing the way he did. Later, I ended up black Friday shopping all by myself and seeing some craziness at Walmart that evening including going to the front of the line because I could pay with a credit card. Once we got back to Lake Jackson that night, David went out with me again to get some things. :)

Dilan's season with the Sunnybees went fairly well. She really liked kicking the ball, even to put two goals in the other team's goals. But during one game, we met a Select Team coach who said, "as long as she's kicking it and she wants to kick it, she's doing well!" Dilan definitely likes to kick the ball but she would get so excited that she wouldn't think about where she was kicking it to. But something clicked when we signed her up for indoor soccer during the winter. She played amazing defense and scored goals, as many as 4 in one game! Dilan is learning the game of soccer and she is getting into it. It's fun to see her improve and gain confidence. Her indoor soccer coach of the Stars asked us if she had a team to be on in the spring because he had openings. He was recruiting Dilan and really wanted her to play on his team. But we are sticking with the Sunnybees in the spring.
Dilan also tried a dance studio this year for the first time since she's been taking dance. I signed her up for ballet and she lasted a month. She said it was too boring even though she had three friends in that class with her. I couldn't blame her; I hated ballet too so I took her out and put her back in gymnastics which she loves. Dilan smiles the whole time she is in the gym and her cartwheels are awesome. She is working on her handstands and backbends. :)
Drake played soccer for the first time this fall with the Black Knights. He actually had another player named Drake on his team. It was a bit confusing when we were cheering for him but Drake really enjoyed playing. He scored goals and he even got into some pushing and shoving matches, sometimes with his own team. :) Overall, Drake had a good time playing and really wants to do whatever Drew and Dilan do.
That night we went to the trunk or treat at church. Dilan chose not to dress up as Anna which is her Halloweeen costume this year but chose a ballerina recital costume instead. Dakota did a great job learning how to trick or treat. She loved getting he candy and putting it in her pumpkin. I think these kids are ready for Halloween!!!
