We've Been Busy

We flew to California on a Thursday, went to Disneyland on Friday and Saturday, then flew home on Sunday. Dan's sister and her little family flew to Boise to spend Thanksgiving with us. (They arrived a couple of hours before us.) I was a bad hostess. I have no idea what to do in Boise when it is cold but no snow. We had Thanksgiving dinner at our house along with the Reichner family. Kate and Chanell cooked a fabulous meal. (I opened a can of corn.) We played Mario Cart then went for a walk.
Kate, Scott and Sala flew out Friday morning. (Thanks for coming! It was fun to have you!) We drove to Logan Friday afternoon. We got to hang out with Rob, Rowe and Sid, Kyle & Ang, & Amy, Dalls, Tyler & Ella on Friday night. Saturday Dan and Kyle went chasing after bike-shop-ownership dreams while others went for a walk up the river trail.

Saturday night we crashed at the Gunn residence. We went to church with them on Sunday and hung out at their house and witnessed pregnant Danika consume large amounts of food. J/K. I was the one who downed three bowls of Chia's beans, rice and chicken combo which will not help the above jeans fit any looser.
Dan quit his job and got another one. (If you want details ask Dan to post about it.) He has a week off starting Tuesday. So we will probably hit the road again. Then I will have to rush to get ready for Christmas.
Busy time of year.
