Sterling took a BIG test on Wednesday morning. Which meant....drum roll....he had the ENTIRE long weekend to spend with us WITHOUT ANY studying!!!!!! Best. Idea. Ever.
We had Thanksgiving.
All the couples from our apartment complex (McKenzi and Beth's families---I see them all the time, we spent our days of summer at the pool together and now we do play group and story time and the park and the zoo together all the time.) as well as two families in the ward that both have five kids that I spend a lot of time with, teach them piano, work with in nursery, etc.
|Not everyone, but the closest thing to a group shot I have.|
We built forts.

We washed our van.
We went to the zoo:
|Molly slept through most of it.|
|King of the zoo.|
|Ruthie scaring off a squirrel.|
We went to the temple.
We went to a park while we were in Ft. Lauderdale.
(it cost a 1.50 to get in, but it was totally worth it--it was amazing!)
We saw Christmas lights and Santa Claus.
|Don't mind my weird hair, the wind was blowing like crazy.|
And I got to spend time with this man:
We liked it.

Today we are just hangin' out. Sterling made us a delicious dinner of lemon salmon and rice and peas and leftover Thanksgiving pie. Ruthie is watching Mickey Mouse Christmas and I'm just sad it's all over so fast. Only three more weeks until Christmas break!!!!!
