We had a really good thanksgiving this year.  Jake and Carolyn came over with Noah and Heidi.  It was a little touch and go initially as Noah had a slight fever on Wednesday but it was mostly gone on Thursday.  We decided that we’d rather risk sickness than be without our family.  We had a great turkey dinner at around noon and then just sat around talking and hanging out the rest of the day.  It was very nice and relaxing.

On Friday Jake and Carolyn came over again so Jake could help me put up my Christmas lights.  Then we went to the movies to see Planet 51.  The kids really seemed to enjoy it.  I thought it was pretty good.  It wasn’t Pixar but it was watchable.

On Saturday we decided it was time to get our Christmas trees.  Jake and Carolyn came over once again as is the tradition for our tree cutting.  Alex and Melodie also joined us.  We drove to Moscow and got our permits ($5).  Then we drove out in to the Idaho forest and wandered around until we found trees that would fit and looked good.  We came home and played some Super Mario Wii.  Once everyone was back at their own places we hauled all the Christmas decorations up from the basement and started setting up.  Its a very nice tree.  I love Christmas.

Not quite what I had in mind

I got off work today and we went over to Stuart’s school to meet his new teacher.  Then we went to dinner and to try to find Tiger Woods 10 for the Wii.  No luck with that but I did get the new D&D book.  Anyway we got home at around 7:30, just in time to get the kids ready for bed.  Since school starts tomorrow we wanted to get them into bed at 8 so Stu could be very rested.  At about 8:15 we heard a lot of laughing and then a loud thump followed by crying.  I went in to check and Stu’s crying saying “I hit my head really hard!”  That’s when I saw the blood on his pillow.  I put my hand on it and then he saw the blood and pretty much lost it.  I called for Kami to bring a rag and she came running in and we had a look.

Anyway, long story short, a couple of hours in the ER and we are home.  Stu’s in bed and excited to have 2 staples in his head.  Great story for the first day of school right?  Here’s a pic before the doctor examined it.  I’ll try to post a pic of the wound tomorrow when the dressing comes off.
