Thanksgiving was wonderful. I got to play with my cousin's kids. All the other get times we've gotten together she just stared at everyone. This is the first time she came out of her shell to play. She kept running back and forth from Great Grandpa Kent, a Great Great Uncle, and myself. Every time I rolled up my tongue, and stuck it out, she would stick her tongue out. I'm sure her parents will love that I thought her to stick her tongue out. I also crawled after her growling like a dog. She thought that was hilarious.

We all bring food to the house where Thanksgiving is hosted. There's always good yummy things.

The boys watch football, the girls chat, the kids play, and I bounce around to play with the kids and chat.

There were some missing people. My Cousin Brent's wife was sick, and my nephew Emerson was really sick. There seems to be someone sick every holiday. Isaak was still not very hungry from being sick the Monday before.

We left early to go see the lighting downtown at the Gene Leahy Mall. It was cold. The boys had a long day. The boys kept saying, "When will the lighting start?" Luckily we had connections to get a good parking spot. Someone in the parking lot of the gallery where my husband's work is at leaked to us where to park for free.

Then we walked to get hot chocolate, and to a free holiday concert at the Holland Performing Arts Center. We had never been there, so it was nice to see the space. By this time it was getting later. The boys were cold, and had a long day.

The Omaha Symphony played Christmas music. My favorite was the Charlie Brown theme song.

Mica had the worst hat head I have ever seen. Isaak fell fast asleep. So the night ended.
