I apologize in advance to all of you who are not military and don't have access to the USO in airports. The Raleigh one is particularly nice and was perfect for us to relax in while waiting for Oma's delayed flight.
Going to see The Nutcracker ballet for the first time (for the kids)
Dinner that included Talberts, Klanns and Akridges! Awesome!
Thanksgiving Day was at Granny's and we got in some great cousin time and took a nice walk.
Cousin time again! This time at Purple Penguin.
Reading to Oma before bedtime:
Every 5th Sunday at church we have "Faith's Got Talent" and you can do anything during your performance. We have a lot of talented people! This time Brianna did a knock-knock joke routine. I was so proud of her! I was so happy to have the opportunity to play with a band and sing a Barlowgirl song. It was awesome!

Snowman glyph activity:
"My name is Bri. My hat means that I am a girl. My scarf is purple. This means I like cold weather. I have 5 buttons. This means that I am 5 years old. My eyes are green. This means that I like hot cocoa."
"My name is Hunter. My hat means that I am a boy. My scarf is orange. This means I like warm weather. I have 4 buttons. This means that I am 4 years old. My eyes are blue. This means that I don't like hot cocoa."
