On Thanksgiving Day we headed to my parents, the boys loved watching the parade on TV and playing with Seth and Emma. The kids weren't such a huge fan on traditional Thanksgiving foods - but they did love the turkey and rolls and even had sparkling apple cider - Jack made some pretty funny faces after every sip - they aren't used to the carbonation! After my mom's delicious feast we had some down time for naps (and clean up!) and once the littles were all awake we went to Andy and Hilary's for snacks, leftovers and the Seahawks game! They even made sugar cookies for the kids to decorate! The boys loved decorating (and eating!) their cookies and had a great time playing at their cousin's house. The boys both reported that this year they are very thankful for our family - so are we! So much to be thankful for!
We spent the rest of the weekend shopping, decorating, watching Christmas movies, and playing in the SNOW! It wasn't a ton of snow, but the boys were VERY excited and wanted to play in it as soon as they woke up. We discovered the benefit of slightly older kids this year was that we could bundle them up and let them play in the fenced in backyard while we watch on, cozy inside our family room. Game changer!
Sunday we got to decorate MORE cookies at Grammies with cousins and then Drew and Crosby got to go to a Seattle Thunderbirds hockey game that evening. They didn't get to stay the whole time in order to get Crosby to bed on time, but they loved it! Crosby did discover that he is still not a fan of the mascot, Cool Bird. Somehow that bird scares him silly!
