Fall Break and Thanksgiving

Jack was out of school the whole week before Thanksgiving so he got to hang out with me and come to Lily's Thanksgiving day celebration at her preschool. 

We also spent a beautiful day at Fort Fun mini golfing and playing arcade games

The only one who really golfed was Jack. Lily spent the afternoon prancing around the golf course and Josie just wanted to put the balls in the hole

It was still fun and it was great to be outside

We also spent some days having fun at home:

On Thanksgiving we went to my parents house and some friends of ours joined us as well. My mom catered Thanksgiving dinner so no one had to cook. It was amazing food!

Of course I forgot to take any group pictures, this is the only photo I got that evening:

On Black Friday we drove to downtown to visit Santa. We got there early and it was a good thing too because by the time the workshop opened, there was a big line. And it was below freezing out!

Santa spent a few minutes with each kid and they got to tell him what they wanted for Christmas. 

Then, when it was time for the picture we gave Josie to Santa. We had a feeling she would cry...she doesn't like beards. 
After visiting Santa we went to a restaurant for lunch. Oh man, I never eat out so I forget how hard it is to have a baby at a restaurant. It might be another 2 years before I go out again..

After lunch we took the kids to Pinot Pallet for their own painting class. Thankfully Josie slept through the whole thing so I was able to help Jack and Luke could help Lily:

The ornaments turned out super cute!

That night our friends came over to play more board games while the kids watched a movie. 

Saturday Luke went to Costco and got our tree. The kids spent hours decorating it. 

And then the snow came... 

So we went sledding: 
It was Josie's first time sledding, she seemed to have fun with Luke
 But was a little unsure when she rode with Jack

It was a beautiful day for sledding and a great way to end our fall break.
