Saturday morning I ran some errands... I needed new jeans as I've lost a bit of weight recently. Then I had to get prizes and supplies for the Christmas get together I do with my friend Jen and her girls. I discovered that our local dollar tree sells basically the same wrapping paper that I was planning to get at Target... score! Anyway, after that excitement I took Sethy grocery shopping with me and then we had to be at church to get ready for the pageant. The boys did great, Nolan was a shepherd and seth was an angel. It was very cute. Afterwards, Aaron's cousin Mike and his wife Sarah came over for Pizza, it was so great visiting with them. We don't get to see them nearly enough. The boys showed off and delighted in having company over.
This morning we had another showing of the pageant and my sister and her family came to watch. Afterwards we went home and realized we had nothing going on for the rest of the day. We decided to surprise the boys and take the lightrail down to Seattle. There is a carousel at Westlake, and the gingerbread houses built by architects at the Sheraton on display. Then we decided to truly blow their mind and go to Gameworks. It was a pretty fun day. And you know, we spent 30 bucks so they could redeem their tickets for about 4 bucks worth of plastic shit and candy, so they were thrilled.
