Just so no one feels bad for us eating turkey brats on Thanksgiving, I thought I'd tell you about the rest of our weekend. On Friday, Darin went into work for 5 hours. The kids and I hung out at home, colored, played, made books and did some other fun stuff. Darin came home and took Tyson out to run a few errands while Jori was sleeping. Around 5, some of our small group came over with their kids to just hang out and eat pizza. It was a lot of fun being able to talk more with them about our time in Africa and catch up on things we missed out on and the kids had a great time running around with their friends. We missed you, Hazards and Walters!
On Saturday we had a lazy morning. In the afternoon, Darin and Tyson went to Innotec to fill the vending machines. Tyson woke up on Saturday morning saying he couldn't walk. He was having trouble straightening one of his legs and was limping all around the house. We thought he was kidding, but after watching his leg give out a couple times we were convinced! He had been crawling around when he first got up, so he was pretty excited that he could walk again (slowly) and go help daddy "do the vending".
Around 4:30, we met Jason and Liz Cook, who stayed with us in our Africa house for 2 weeks, at McDonald's. The kids had fun playing in the play land and we had fun catching them up on people and places they became familiar with during their time in South Africa. Tyson and Jori were excited to see Jason and Liz again and on the way home Jori kept saying "where Jason 'n Liz at?".
We went to church this morning. I was in nursery for both services, but still managed to hear some of the awesome worship music. We have both really enjoyed being back at Evergreen as it was one of the things we missed the most while we were in South Africa.
All in all, we had a great Thanksgiving and a fantastic weekend. Now we are getting a ton of snow, which doesn't thrill me. I am really hoping that Tyson will have school tomorrow and that the plows will come through to clear the roads. My snow driving skills, while much improved from my first year of driving in Michigan, are nothing to brag about. So if you see me out on the road, consider yourself warned!
