Hi!  So we had a happy Thanksgiving!  We hosted at our house this year!
In attendance we had Ryan, Jamie, Mom, Dad, Dick, Susan, Donald, and our family.
Various people did some cooking, and we got some food from Central Market.

We had a very nice day.  Mom and Dad took care of the kids during the day so we could get the house cleaned and get the food ready.  (so thanks for that!)

I think everyone had a really nice time.  The food was tasty.

to the other room because he wanted to eat next to Uncle Ryan

On Friday we actually did a small amount of shopping to take advantage of Black Friday deals.  It was a little crazy out there.  In the afternoon, Katerina and Logan stopped by for a playdate with Raylan.  Raylan had a blast.  I mostly watched the UT-Texas Tech game.  (we won!)

On Saturday morning I took Raylan out to breakfast at Central Market.  He was the only one who would go with me!  We had a really fun time.
Boys breakfast!
We also got Christmas decorations put up (some on Friday, and some on Saturday).

Christmas was fast on the heels of Thanksgiving this year

On Saturday I also took the kids to the park

there was some debate ab out the proper way
to use the slide
Saturday night Mom and Dad took us out to the Long Center to see the Blue Man Group.  I had no idea what to expect.  It ended up being a lot of fun!  Sort of mime comedy combined with music and stuff.  Sort of hard to explain.

We're out omg the town!
After the show we went to Hyde Park by our house for a couple of drinks and some appetizers.  It was fun.  Nice family get together to kick off the holidays.  Thanks to Mom and Dad for taking us out!

On Saturday night I started coughing worse and worse.  Bu Sunday I was feeling pretty bad again.  I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with bronchitis.  I got some medication, but I'm at home today.

So that's it.  Have a good week!  I cannot believe we are in December of 2019!!!!!
