Thanksgiving Trip

For Thanksgiving we went to Zariph's sister, Misty's, house in Colorado. Zariph was able to take the whole week off from work, so we were down there all week. It was fun just relaxing and hanging out. We went to Roy's parents house for our Thanksgiving meal. Then we came back to Misty's for dessert and craft time. We made the cute wood blocks (thanks Mindy for the idea!). Even Saphire and Destiny were able to make a wood block without too much help. Then Friday morning we left the house at 4 a.m. to shop on Black Friday. We took Boston with us because Zariph and Roy were going skiing all day. But, as usual, Boston was great! He would whine a little when he was hungry, but other than that he would just sleep in the stroller, or smile and laugh at people as they were shopping. Our first stop was Kohl's, where we waited in line for about an hour. Then we went to Walmart (after it was open for about an hour) so it wasn't too crazy. Then we went to Michael's. Then to the Mall for Sport's Authority, Target, and Herberger's. I got almost all of my shopping done! We got home about noon. Then we all took a nap for a few hours. It was a fun trip.
