Happy Thanksgiving (and a road trip)
It had been several years since the whole family had been together...to put it in context, I think we've had 3 kids since the last extended family get together. Thanksgiving happened to work out for us and we trusted/hoped that weather would not interfere with an eastward bound trip. The trip was broken up into two days (each way). Several kids were VERY excited at the thought of getting to stay in a hotel. Miss F was just happy to be free of the carseat and able to crawl around.
Loads of fun was had by all.
All she wants for Christmas is her two front teeth! Due to an unfortunate run in with a bannister she lost one of those front teeth just a bit earlier than expected.
Saying "goodbye" to aunt, uncles, cousins, and grandparents. Is Mr. R taller than grandad? Maybe not quite. :)
Miss E has been studying cathedrals and stained glass in her art class. Her tudor suggested that a cathedral that was along our way may be a fun stop. We all enjoyed the stop and getting to enjoy not only the art, but the stories of Christ's life that the pieces told.
