Our Week in Photos #22

And just like that Thanksgiving is over.  We've had a wonderful start to the Holiday season and I look forward to sharing all of our adventures with you over the coming weeks!

 After the event at the library with building bridges, the boys put together this huge bridge using straws and connections.  it was the entire length of the living room. 
 Saturday we had a quiet day at home.  We don't get days like this very often.  Josh was in his glory because the cat actually sat with and/or on him most of the day.  He's been dreaming of this moment for a long time!
 On Monday, the boys participated in a "Mystery Dinner" at the Library.  Nate was "Mikey the Millionaire" and Josh was "The Robot".  Yes, those are their costumes.  So, now you understand why I buy their Halloween costumes every year  ;-) HA!  They really had a great time and got into the whole idea of the mystery!
 Thanksgiving was a beautiful day.  My mom and Darryl's dad celebrated with us.  We watched Football, ate a great dinner, and enjoyed being together.  As is always true at the holidays, my dad's presence was missed but I'm thankful for the family that was able to be together.
 We ended our evening playing games :-)

On Friday, we enjoyed going to see a fabulous Christmas Movie.

This movie was just amazing.  It was so well done and the story was really as close to the real Christmas story as they could get.  I was very impressed.  You know it is good when my 7 year old leans over and says, "Mom, lets buy this movie!"

 And this is the next movie on our list :-)

After he movie we came home to do some yard work.  Yes, this is November 24th.  Nate is in a tank top and shorts and yes, we are really mowing the grass.  Crazy.  It was 60 degrees.  With the help of my mom, we cleaned up the garage, got all of the yard stuff put away and did a little yard work.  It was a great day!
