Thanksgiving Break

We’ve had a great Thanksgiving break around here. We had a fun visit with Matt’s sister and her husband. Dinner was delicious and I’m pretty sure I’m a few pounds heavier as a result. The weather on Thanksgiving day was amazing and so for the third Thanksgiving in a row we went down to the river to enjoy it. The water was so high we only found a small piece of beach to play on but the kids had a great time none-the-less.

For the first time in many years I didn’t do any black Friday shopping and instead we all went to OMSI. I think that was a winning decision and we had a great time.

Today we spent many hours watching football and of course the Civil War game was totally depressing as I really hate seeing the Ducks win (ever). Jenna read for 4 hours, yes 4 hours. She has found a new addiction and I’m okay with this habit. We had to make her put her books away at dinner time. Is she really just 5?!

Also over the break Jenna and Matt have made a couple videos. They’re pretty funny. Here’s one for you to enjoy.


Matt’s also discovered a new app called cinemegram. It’s pretty funny and he’s been highly entertained with it lately. Here’s a clip of Isaac at the park. It’s so funny and so sad at the same time.
