We had a great Thanksgiving at Dave's brother's new home. The cousins had so much fun together!

Back in November, I found discount tickets to ICE through Living Social, so we decided to check it out. We figured it was the best time to go since our tickets were half off and Alyse and Tessa would both be free. Well, folks, there's a reason that it's free for ages 3 and under. (Although, I would argue that they should actually charge double for the 3 and under crowd!) Between the long lines and the freezing temps, it was just too much for the little ones. To top it off, they did not have a coat that fit Tessa -- the best-fitting one had sleeves that were 5 inches too long, and she FREAKED out about it. So, we decided to just take her in with her own winter coat, which just wasn't warm enough for her. Calder really really enjoyed it though! This year's theme was Shrek, and despite the drama, it was really cute.
