Thanksgiving, etc.

Henry's kindergarten class got into the Thanksgiving spirit this year by performing a short play.

Here, Henry explains what the "N" in Thanksgiving might stand for. I bet you think it's "November," right? You're wrong:  it's "neighbors."

The next week, we went to North Carolina to Grandma and Grandpa's house. Cousin Aliza was there...

...and Grandma Sydelle...

...and Grandpa Marty!

On the way home, we stayed one night at the Great Wolf Lodge in Charlotte (which Henry inexplicably called "the Fox Zig") with Luigi and Uncle Ryan. It has a giant indoor water park, magic shows, a miniature bowling alley and is pretty much just an awesome place to bring your kids.  Plus, they got to sleep in their own "cabin" inside our room which included bunk beds, making it much easier for the grown-ups to stay up late and watch a little TV.
