thanksgiving weekend

Ben's mom, Vicky, and his siblings, Jason and Katie drove out to our house for Thanksgiving dinner. Kara was so proud to be able to set the table. She loved counting out 7 of each item to be set. She went around to count the people a few times to make sure 7 was the right amount. She set out the place cards and everything. I especially love how she put the silverware on the plates. She also set one piece of celery on each plate, but it didn't make it into the picture. I'll have to put her in charge of setting the table more often. Kiersten with her aunt Katie.
we played lots of games. Here is Kiersten hanging out at the game table in her warm jammies. Look how long her hair is getting.
friday after shopping the sales, and after Ben came home from work, we went to see the zoolights at point defiance zoo. The girls loved it and so did the adults.
We always spend a lot of time inside the aquarium. I love how Kiersten waves to the fish and giggles at them.
both of the girls had glow batons. of course, the first thing they did with them was sword fight.

if was lots of fun, even though it was pretty cold.
