Last Friday, I took Ariel to a friend's house.  
Amy's dad came over to replant the plants that were pulled out by deer.  
I finished the Cyberquad.  
I took the twins to Otherworld Philadelphia.  It opened recently.  It's a bit hard to describe.  They took a giant warehouse and made a maze of rooms which were decorated by local artists.  Artists with very twisted visions.  This is the second one in the country.  I don't have much to say just look at the pics.  It was very trippy.  The boys seemed to like it.  

Some stuff was interactive.  The boys made dance music here.  

The gift shop was crazy too.  
Ariel spent the day shopping of course.  
Harper came over that night.  

The girls drilled Eli on multiplication.

Have a great weekend!

Last Thursday was Thanksgiving!  We spent the whole day cleaning and getting the house ready and cooking.  Luckily the kids kept themselves busy.  I needed about 4 hours to smoke the turkey.  Once I got that going, I was able to play with the kids a little.  
The neighbor kids.  
This is what the turkey looked like when I threw it on the smoker.
I worked on the new Cyberquad.  
Ariel played with the Alien.  

The turkey was just about done!  I love the way it looked.  
Both our families came over as well as our friend Dana and her family.  
Ariel got a new jewelry stand.  
All set up for dinner.  
The smoked turkey came out great!  Amy's mom also made a good roasted turkey for those that didn't like the smoked one.  

I made green beans and Dana and the moms made lots of other veggies.  Amy’s mom also made a roasted turkey!
We pigged out!
Honey played with everyone.  
We watched football and chatted.  
Dessert time.  Half gluten free and half regular.  
Ariel loves the chocolate covered strawberries.  

We hung out late into the night.  
It was tough hosting but Amy worked hard and everyone was happy.  

Silly cousins.  
Honey with her favorite.
