Another weekend come and gone!! This was a fun weekend spent with the Hellen family. We celebrated Thanksgiving on Friday, and basically lounged around the house the rest of the weekend. There was a plethora of gifts opened on Friday as we celebrated multiple birthdays and Christmas. How many birthdays well, there was Paul and Sharla (Nov. 3), Carol (Nov. 11), Emily (Nov. 14), Amy (Nov. 15), Curt (Nov. 22) and finally Nathan on Dec. 3. I am not sure how we will get all of these gifts into the luggage, oh well, a few more days to worry about that.
Peanuts are much more fun than the present!!!Saturday morning we went to breakfast with Josh and April Shiflett. It was fun to hang out with them. They are always good to get with and talk to. Emily enjoyed walking around IHOP and trying to get all of the other customers to notice her. She is a social little girl, shy at times, but more outgoing than the other two ever were. After breakfast we headed to Paul’s mom’s house were we learned that we had missed out on biscuits and gravy, one of the few foods that we enjoy getting while we are home in OKC. That is the way it goes I suppose. We spent the rest of the hanging out at Carol’s house playing games, and listening to the OSU/OU football game on the radio, no OSU did not win.There was a bit of UNO Attack played which is a pretty fun game and I am now seriously thinking about getting one, a new twist on a familiar game. Once the game was over and dinner had been eaten Grandma Hellen held a tea party for Nathan, Kayla and Avery. They were served tea and crackers. They all dressed in their tea time hats enjoyed some quality time with Grandma. Uncle Curt had to return to work on Sunday morning so Curt, Amy, and Cousin Avery headed back to Texas around 6PM and the rest of us headed over to Grandpa Hellen’s house so that Nathan and Kayla could roast marshmallows in his fireplace. Not the same as an open campfire, but the marshmallows sure were tasty!!
