Thanksgiving came and went as quickly as ever. We spent Wednesday at my parents' house for a family dinner. The kids were excited because this meant a family trip in our bus. This was our first trip outside of town since we had mechanical trouble on the way to the farm in August. The kids were a bit nervous about every sound and wind sway at first, but they soon settled in and went to sleep for the trip.
Then Thursday was Thanksgiving at our house with all the feasting and board games that we could handle.
Friday marked our annual decorating day which we tease that it should be called "The Day We Take Down the Fly Paper and Put Up the Christmas Tree". With so many kids constantly fanning the back door, we indeed keep a fly paper or two up from April thru November, and Thanksgiving marks the point that I feel we no longer have a fly problem!
We got most of the decorating done, but we were short a strand of indoor lights so we will have to finish "decking out" the big Christmas tree (pictured above with the fly paper) sometime this week.
