Oh my goodness, Chris and I hit the shops today and got almost ALL of our Christmas shopping done. I was so excited. We did really well and are even under budget. Now to get all the
wrapping paper etc and get it all boxed up and sent off to Edmonton and Seattle. Yippee!!

Chris and I had a very nice Thanksgiving. We spent the day with our friends, Becca and Travis. Amy and Troy, Troy's mom and our friend Dave. The food was yummy, the company even better. Chris and I are thankful we have friends here we can spend the holidays with when we are so far from home. We ate a lot of food, watched football and played games. Fun times!! And Becca you did an awesome job on the turkey and hosting. Thanks for having us, you guys are awesome:)

Troy, Amy and Nettie (how cute is she all posing)

Turkey for everyone
We played Balderdash which I normally do halfway decent at. Well if you notice the ORANGE game piece at the beginning and where the rest of the players are you will see how horrible I played. I think I ended up making it 4 spots or something like that. Brutal. Oh well, I guess it was better than the time we played Scrabble and I played so bad my best word of the night was FART only later to be topped when I added an S to it to make the word FARTS! lol

Sounds like a great time!

I can't believe you braved the crowds and actually went shopping.

Normally I do okay at Balderdash, but scrabble....FORGET IT. Mom likes scrabble though, so when I do give in and play next time I'll try to remember that word (Farts). That's soooo funny! I do love board games, but scrabble is NOT one of my favorite.
