    This fall brought something I have not had for a while.

    A family member within 30miles of me.

    My “little” brother (he towers over me) is going to school in the town right next to ours.

    The boys pretty much see him as a giant toy.

    He makes them ten feet tall just by picking them up.

    Helps them put together legos.

    He pretty much makes their little faces light up all day.

    I can understand.

    He and I spent many summers thinking up ways to scare my poor mother.

    Setting fire to our “playhouse” with us in it.

    Climbing trees as high as we could go.

    Climbing up “cliffs”.

    We challenged and pushed each other constantly.

    He pretty much helped shape me into the person I am.

    My boys love him.

    The Nina & The Pinta

    Monday, November 28th, 2011

    We headed out to Muskogee, OK Saturday to see replica’s of the Nina & The Pinta.

    They were two of the ships in the armada that Columbus sailed with in search of a new passage to Asia (finding the new world instead).

    Whenever I get the chance to touch and feel history I jump at it!

    “What’s down there anyway?”

    When I was telling my kids about the ships before we got there, my oldest got really excited and thought we were going to sail across the ocean.

    Then my youngest thought up a plan to make that happen. He said, “I am going to push it and jump in and sail away! Do you think that will work?”

    No, you may not steal the ship.

    My little pirates.

    The Niña – Most Historically Accurate Columbus Replica Ship Ever Built

    The Niña is a replica of the ship on which Columbus sailed across the Atlantic on his three voyages of discovery to the new world beginning in 1492.  Columbus sailed the tiny ship over 25,000 miles.  That ship was last heard of in 1501, but the new Niña has a different mission.  We are a floating museum, and we visit ports all over the Western Hemisphere. (Taken from their site.)

    One of the crew members that sails around on her.

    It was a great experience!

    They are only here until December 7th, then they sail to the next port.

    Adults are $8

    Children $6

    This was the star of the Thanksgiving feast for me.

    Sweet Potato Pie.

    I love it way too much.

    My husband bought flowers for me!

    The next day we got the Christmas tree out.

    I decided these were moments I would miss and I had to get some pictures!

    Don’t forget to capture your kids enjoying the holidays.

    They will not always be this little.
