This last Saturday was our Church Christmas Party. One of the Sisters in our Ward asked me to cover for her and set up the Nutcracker Room at the church. Of course I said yes because why would I turn down the opportunity to decorate? I love to decorate. Calista and I spent most of Saturday gathering things, setting up the room, and making treats for the party. This is the mixed theme table. There are sports Nutcrackers, Snowman Nutcrackers, a Mickey Mouse Nutcracker and all kinds of Nutcrackers. I love all of the football player nutcrackers at the back. They were some of my favorites.

November seemed to fly by didn't it? We stayed in Texas for Thanksgiving and experienced our very first Holiday away from family. We were hosted by The Ginos Family and had a wonderful meal and great company. I baked my brains out for the first time in my life. As practice for my pie crusts I made a quiche at the first of the week (see below). It was delicious if I may say so myself and enjoyed by all.

You would think that in November we would be wearing sweaters, long pants, and heating ourselves up from the inside out with hot cocoa. Not in the Great State of Texas. Last Friday night we drove down to San Antonio to spend the evening with our Dad who had been working at a Conference there. Saturday he worked some more and I took all the kids to the Zoo! When Mark was finished with his work day we managed to squeeze 2 hours at Sea World in to the already packed and exhausting day. The kids had a blast! Journey to Atlantis at Sea World is their favorite ride.
