Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! We've had so much to be thankful for this year, particularly our new addition, Jane. We were able to celebrate with our families this past week up in Northern Virginia. First we headed up to Chris' house and spent a couple days relaxing. Lots of the family wanted to snuggle Jane.

 We kicked field-goals there, and took the girls to Burke Lake Park, as well.

On Thanksgiving day, we drove to visit my family. My family celebrated on Friday so that we could be included - thank you for accommodating us! We kicked field-goals there, too. After warming up the day before, Chris was able to hit a 41 yarder and I was able to hit a 15 yarder. Eleanor attempted to kick and though she didn't have any success, she had fun. 

Dinner was wonderful, as always, and we had lots of time to sit around together and relax over breakfast, lunch, games, etc.

While we were in Leesburg, we walked around to see a big Christmas tree and ended up playing glow golf. It was a lot of fun!

We ended up heading back at bedtime on Saturday night. I am going back to work this week and we needed a day to get organized for that. We had such a great time, and have so much to be thankful for - our family, our community, our jobs, and a wonderful place to live top my list. Now onward to Christmas…
