Thanksgiving Week (Tuesday-Friday)

Tuesday we went to the Magic Kingdom!  Nick,  Nora, & Meghan met us at our townhouse that morning. We had breakfast at Cracker Barrel before going. 

Hollyn wanted to ride Ariel's grotto first!   I started feeling bad (stomach bug) walking in, and Drew was asleep, so we sat it out.

After getting ice cream, we went and sat in this neat new turf area.  We took off our shoes and let the kids play around.  Drew practiced his walking! I took pictures.  We could see the parade and show at the castle!  It was relaxing and wonderful!

A photographer did a little shoot with Drew!

I was extremely sick after we left.  Chris got the stomach bug that night.  He continued to get sick all night.  We had to pack up everything from the townhouse and go to Nick & Nora's that morning.  Bryn threw up all over our rental car.....  

Wednesday afternoon at Baba's
 Helping make Meghan's apple pie Wednesday night!

Mimosas Thursday morning!

Chris played in a kickball tournament Thursday morning:

Drew started standing & walking this week! 

Thanksgiving time!!!

Thursday evening we went to Jeff & Barb Jackson's house to visit. 

Friday - Bryn's 1/2 Birthday
Mini Doughnut Factory for breakfast

Busch Gardens - First Stop: Cheetahs!

Drew proved he could walk at least 3 steps and got to ride his first ferris wheel!

Saturday: We had to wake up at 3:30 to leave.  We packed up and left at 4:15am.  Drove 1.5 hours to Sanford, dropped off rental car, waited in long lines...  They were boarding our plane by the time we got to the gate.
We left around 7:30.   Got to XNA and we couldn't land because of the heavy fog.  Circled for a while before getting too low on fuel.  Flew to Wichita, KS (40 there) and stayed for an hour, then back.  Finally landed at XNA at 11:30am! Wow!  Over 6 hours on the plane!

Minnie the Elf greeted us when we got home!  She had a letter for the kids & left us all matching pajamas!
