Christmas, Thanksgiving, Christmas

Last week was amazing!  Andrew was off the entire week and we had a blast!  Andrew and Jackson got to work out in the yard, raking and burning leaves (fun boy stuff).  Me and Eva Kate got to shop:)  Thanksgiving week also includes Andrew's birthday!  Here is a run down of our week.
Sunday one of the kids in our community group turned 3 so we went to his tractor party at one of the jumpy places.  The kids had a blast!  Afterwards we all went out to Partner's Pizza for some good food and great times with friends.  
Monday we had a birthday celebration at my mom and dad's. 

 Would not be a celebration at the Mitchell's without fireworks!

 On Tuesday Andrew and I got a date day.  This was so awesome to spend quality time with just Andrew!  We went Christmas shopping and then to see a movie.  We saw Courageous and it was amazing!  I highly recommend it!  Seriously there are only a few movies I have ever watched that truly made me think and change things in my life to make myself a better person.  Afterwards we did dinner and a little more shopping:) When we went to pick the kids back up Granny, Jackson and Eva Kate had made Andrew birthday cupcakes!

Wednesday was Andrew's actual birthday...the big 30!  We started off the day by waking up to our Christmas elf Ollie coming back down from the North Pole!  Ollie had set up the dining room and left us with cinnamon rolls cooking in the oven!  Lets just say the kids LOVED every minute of it! Ollie even dragged up all of our Christmas decorations from the basement and wanted us to decorate the tree.  So after breakfast we decorated!

 Eva Kate had her first taste of chocolate milk....lets just say...she enjoyed it!

Thursday we had a wonderful Thanksgiving with all of our families!  

Friday we had another birthday celebration and had a blast!  Saturday during the day Andrew and Uncle Mark worked on putting up the Christmas lights outside.  

We are pushing towards the Griswolds this year...

(Bethany: Is your house on fire, Clark?
Clark: No, Aunt Bethany, those are the Christmas lights. )

Saturday night my parents kept the kids and Andrew and I got another night out to shop and grab dinner!  Sunday we had a great time at church, went to the grocery store and then rested up for a new week!
 And if you notice once again...I was the one taking the pictures...not in them...I swear I was there!
