Thanksgiving week

With our tree up, we are getting into the Christmas spirit!

Mommy captured a picture of us admiring the Christmas tree on Monday morning.
The Christmas Tree is so magic to us!

Tuesday after school, we went to the History Museum with Noah's Cub Scout Den. It was fun. We love the History Museum!
Learning about the fur trade in Minnesota a couple of hundred years ago.

Checking out life on the prairie...The inside of a log cabin is kind of small!

Welcome to Minnesota!

Our Cub Scout in the Toy exhibit. It's decorated up for Christmas! 
Wednesday, we were going to hang out with Daddy at work, but Noah was sick. He slept until 1 o'clock! Hannah was very quiet and respectful while Daddy worked at home in the morning and when Mommy worked from home in the afternoon. Noah felt better when he woke up and spent his afternoon working on his puzzle.

Wednesday night, Dad took Noah to Menards then to Michaels to get supplies for a Cub Scout wood working project. Hannah helped Mom with some shopping before leaving for Thanksgiving.

Thursday morning we got up, packed up and went to Grandma's for Thanksgiving! The whole family was there - Grandma, Grandpa, both our aunts, our uncle and our cousins. After dinner, Daddy helped Noah build a napkin holder in Grandpa's shop (to get his Woodworking requirements) while Hannah played with her cousins.

After supper, we set up our Bingo game and played a family Bingo Game. It was so fun!
Family Bingo Game. Can this become a new Thanksgiving tradition?
Friday we visited Santaland. It's our tradition to go into town and see Santa and Santaland.
The lights at the North Pole are beautiful!

We love to see Santa.

Santa with us and our cousins

Mrs. Santa's bakery was colorful and had some yummy looking treats

Grandma loved this snowflake
While we were waiting for Santa, Mommy saw a pink & blue tree and wanted us to take a picture with it. She said "Where was this tree 8 years ago?! Everything in my world was pink & blue 8 years ago."
Mom loved this pink & blue tree
Grandpa took the family to the Penguins of Madagascar Friday. We got candy, slushies and popcorn. AND we got to sit with our cousins. What a fun time!

Saturday we went to Great Grandma's house. We played games and hung out with our cousins & Mom's cousins' kids. It's always a fun day. Hannah met Mom's cousin who lives in Boston and lived in Washington DC this past summer. She was a little shy, but still anxious to talk to him about living in such a cool place! We even got our faces painted. Noah doesn't care to have his face painted, but Mom painted a bunch of other cousins' faces, so there was a butterfly, angel, lion, a puppy and a soldier playing with us.
Our puppy.

Happy boy after a fun but exhausting weekend.

When we left Great Grandma's, we went to ANOTHER movie. We thought Alexander and the Horrible, Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day was hilarious! And, again, we got to go with our cousins, so it was even more awesome.

Sunday, we got to see our other Grandma for lunch. It was a nice way to finish the weekend! We had a long ride home, but were happy to be home Sunday night!

Have a great week!
Noah & Hannah
