We started off the holiday by heading down to the river where Tara did the 4 mile Turkey Trot. She logged a time around 34 minutes. Afterwards both of the boys did the 200m dash. There was a turnaround point at 100m into the dash, and poor little Ryzen missed it and kept on running straight ahead past the turnaround point. Dane had to go run after him while holding Nova to help him get back on track. After a little consoling, he was fine. :)
We held a Thanksgiving meal at our house, and Dane's parents, Kari's family, and some family friends came.
The girls had fun coloring the table cloth.
The boys got together and played some new games (Camel Up & 7 Wonders).
Shara's family came up to have Thanksgiving with Stephen's clan. She and Stephen stopped by for a day and the kids got to hang out.
Christmas Tree Lighting
We took the kids to the Christmas Tree Lighting in the 5th Street Market in Eugene. Since the temperatures are still in the 50's, they had a snow machine going to make it more festive. :) The kids also enjoyed sitting on Santa's lap.
When we bought our house there were a couple geese hanging around the yard. They disappeared within a short period of time. Well, now they've returned, along with 100 of their closest friends. Literally.
