Little Chute, Reindeer, and Dress Up

We finally took a trip to Little Chute (they are great at coming to see us, but it had probably been at least a year since we had been there) to see Grandpa Wayne & Grandma Sharon and celebrate Wayne's birthday with a surprise party (on 11/11/11). The party was in the upper room of a cool pizza/bar place and was a blast. The girls had a great time playing toys that Grandma Sharon had brought and dancing, and we had a great time chatting with Wayne and Sharon and their family and friends.
We had a nice weekend there just hanging out at their house, playing games, and taking a trek down the block to a nice little park. Uncle Scotty had come with us for the trip and even joined the girls for a little Merry-Go-Round action.
Back home the following weekend, we headed to Woodbury Lakes Open House for the first time, where there were lots of activities to kick off the holiday season.
Claire, Abby and I took a sleigh ride (and Ryan took some pictures) pulled by these guys here...
It was our first reindeer sleigh ride and it was awesome! We also saw Santa, friends Amy, Linnea and Chris Meyers, and a fantastic fireworks show. Plus we danced with this reindeer (below) and some of his snowman friends. It was a chilly but fun night!
Other than that, we've been hanging out at home quite a bit. We spent some time decorating and, of course, dressing up.

Oh, and making a few funny faces, too.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and is enjoying the holiday season as much as we are!
