Catherine taught us how to make Thai rolls during our visit to Idaho. I got Steve excited about them today, so we went to the store and bought all the fixin's. They turned out really good. Steve liked them, but I think preferred more meat. He's not a real veggie lover. As long as I have dipping sauce, I'm happy!
Thanksgiving went really well. We went out to the Grange and feasted there. Jackie and I were able to play more Nertz (a fast card game). On Friday, I took Andrew (all the rest of the children got in trouble) to the Christmas Light Parade downtown. It was really fun! We even treated ourselves to a French pastry. Andrew loved all the lighted up tractors. Afterwards he said, "That was a fun date, just you and me!". I think he'll remember that one for awhile.
Today was a lazy day. Did some regular chores then Steve and I took the kids with us to go grocery shopping. I dozed on the couch and then finished my "Fall of the Eagles" series. It was very interesting, but not very fast moving. I know a lot more about why WWI was started. Steve went to Kmart and got the kid's Christmas present. Shhhh, don't tell, but we got them a trampoline! I thought it might be easier to get them one big present then a bunch of individual ones. They will love it, especially Jessica.
