From Thanksgiving to Christmas

John's lights on our house
Gotta love that timer...


It was almost a good picture

Luke and the timer

After one of the coldest Octobers on record in Minnesota, we have had one of the warmest Novembers. It has been nice to have the extra time outside without any snow on the ground. It is very unusual for us not to have snow by December, although I am pretty sure it will be coming this weekend. Anyway, this gave us some extra time to decorate the outside of the house and John did quite a bit of work on it. We don't typically do much for outdoor decorations, so this was a first for us. The boys were more excited about playing with the timer for the lights than they were about the lights themselves, although they were very intrigued by them. I am a little skeptical of putting lights outside since it seems like most neighbors end up having to leave them there until the snow melts in May, but John assures me that we will be too busy to notice that there are still lights on the house post Christmas so we won't notice the Christmas lights at Easter!
We had a nice Thanksgiving despite a rough weekend. I had some food poisoning from a local restaurant that really set me back for a couple days. The boys both ended up with sinus infections and ear infections which meant two trips to the pediatrician approximately 24 hours apart. Needless to say, we were very thankful that John was healthy!
