Extended Family Visit

My extended family came to visit this past weekend. Thursday evening, the day or our referral, we picked up my cousin, Kristin who flew in from Indiana (where she goes to college), not India (as one of my third graders thought!)

Kristin came to school with my on Friday and got to meet my class and experience PJ day! She helped my kids with their Thanksgiving Turkey Glyph math project. It was great to have her help.

Friday evening we went out to dinner at our family's favorite restaurant.... Red Robin! The rest of the crew (Aunt Cheryl, Uncle Chuck, Kelsey, Grammy, and Grandad) came Friday evening. Kristin and Kelsey spent the night with us. We enjoyed our late night chat/dance party in our pj's.
On Saturday we went to my parents house to hang out. Grammy worked on a few sewing projects. Grandad built some stools for Aunt DeAnn. My dad and I baked chocolate ribbon cookies. Kristin, Kelsey, and I frosted the cookies and everyone ate them! We did a puzzle, played games, and ate a yummy dinner of potato noodles. My mom is an excellent cook!

Kristin had to fly home early Sunday morning. But the rest of the family was still here through Monday and Wednesday. Sunday the highlight of the activities for me was going to Target to buy Isaiah a play kitchen that was on sale. Campbell got to play with it first to make sure it was fun! We also went out to dinner at Claim Jumpers which was good too.

Monday and Tuesday were budget cut days for me so I used them to do grad school homework. Grammy and Grandad left on Monday afternoon. Tuesday I went to my parent's house to help watch Campbell and do homework. Watching Campbell was so much more fun, but I was able to submit my Chapters 4 and 5 of my action research this week. Tuesday evening we met up with the Ayres family and did dinner at the Old Spaghetti factory.

It was great to see everyone. I am excited that Kelsey will be going to college in Portland so we can see our extended family even more!
