This time of year, when we're reminded to give thanks, we've been especially grateful for the time we got to spend with Kate. It was a busy week, not quite the marathon of Thanksgiving meals it's been in the past and we didn't get to visit all the family we would've liked to see, but it was still a holiday filled with good things.
  • Aunt Kate spoiled Celia; she cooked her squash pancakes and watched cartoons with her and sang to her and even held her while she got some blood drawn.
  • Kate took me to lunch and we shopped and she did like 8 loads of laundry for me and she reminded me that someday, maybe, I can be "half an Olsen twin" again.
  • Kate took Andy ziplining in Hocking Hills and shared Yuengling with him (and with Colby).
We can't wait till Kate comes back in February!

The time spent with family can't be compared to anything else. I'm so glad you all got to spend time with Kate!

And even though we didn't get to see Kate in person...it was wonderful to see the pictures! Kate you're as beautiful as ever! Hum is there just a little bit that beauty that got passed on down to Celia.

We had a wonderful time in Tennessee with Aunt YoYo(Andrea) and Michael's family. Brendon loved driving through the mountains, yet again, while his dad, Chris, put up with Papa's driving and stopping, and stopping and stopping. Thankful we were all together also.
