Our Thanksgiving Week

Our week has been filled with activities and sick kids.

For 3 or 4 days James and Jerard were running temperatures. James' got quite high. They were both started on antibiotics and have improved tremendously since then.

Ben was also diagnosed with an ear infection and is on antibiotics for that as well.

We had planned a weekend get-away this weekend since the kids have a four-day weekend, but with illnesses running, we postponed it for a month.

On Thanksgiving day we hosted a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for about 22 people. It was also Kurt's birthday.

The Birthday guy - Kurt!

Two of Kirsten's Korean friends joined us for the American Thanksgiving meal as they'd never had one before. They liked all the food!

Here are some pictures from our week!

James loves to wear hats.

Kurt was serenaded on his birthday morning by some of our Filipino colleagues!

Kirten and Ben setting up our Christmas tree. We put it in the hallway again this year to keep toddlers from dismantling it to much!

Mikayla putting a decoration on it. She commented it still doesn't really 'feel' like Christmas due to the heat. Some of us do miss snow around this time of year.
