Kent and I had a quiet Thanksgiving with just the two of us. I think it may be the first Thanksgiving we've spent alone in the thirty-five years we've been married! We both spent the day working on projects--Kent putting up the Christmas lights in the yard and me working on the decorations for the ward Christmas party, which was the next week.
On the Friday night after Thanksgiving we worked at the temple, but on the Saturday after Thanksgiving we went to Christmas Town at Busch Gardens near Williamsburg.
One thing we missed when we went two years ago was the nativity story play that had been highly recommended to us. We went to it first thing so we wouldn't miss it on this visit.
These were two nice activities to kick off the Christmas season this year!
