While he was gone, I took the kids to see 'Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium'. Then we picked up Brandy and the girls and went to drive through the Living Nativity. We've never done that before. It was cool.
Saturday morning I took Alyssa to choir practice, then the boys and I went Christmas shopping. After lunch we went to Kai and Alyssa's Martial Arts Open House. That night we all watched a movie at home. Dean came home just before midnight.
Sunday was a nice relaxing day. Dean had this Sunday off in Kid's Cove so we had a nice slow morning and went to the third service. Sunday evening Dean and I went on a DATE!
