Thanksgiving was lots of fun. Ryan's school had all the parents come for snack and to watch the kids perform some songs. We had lots of fun getting to watching the kids sing songs. Ryan loves his school and is going to miss it when it is over. For thanksgiving dinner we went over to my parents house in Idaho Falls with my other brother and sisters. We had lots of fun hanging out with family. As we were walking in the door Jackson fell off the step and cut his ear open. That was a lot of fun trying to get to calm down so we can eat. His ear ended up being just fine and he played the rest of the day. Chris took the kids back home and I stayed at my parents so I could go shopping for black friday. My sister and I ended up going to some places that night. We ended our shopping at Walmart at about 2:30. My sister-in-law came with us and wanted to go to Khol's at 3 so the dummy I was went with her and didn't get home until 4:30 and had to wake up at 8:30 to go to another store. All in all it was fun to go out with my sisters and fun to see the crazy people that go shopping. My sister and her family came and stayed with us the rest of the weekend and we had a great time playing Wii and talking. We had the best thanksgiving weekend with family.

Playing in the snow

The kids love to play out in the snow. I am not a big fan of this because it takes longer to get them dressed then how long they play out there. Ryan loves to make snow angels and they both love to eat the snow. We are trying to teach them that snow is not good to eat, but they don't really listen. They also love to help me and Chris shovel the driveway and sidewalks, pretty much anything to be outside. It has been hard for them to stay in all the time. They have been fighting a lot more and it is hard to not just shove them outside to get some energy out. This is going to be a long winter already.
