Happy Thanksgiving 2009

This is our fourth Thanksgiving in four different places since we got married - 2006 on with Jeff's parents on a ship in Hawaii, 2007 at our place with our Hawaii friends, 2008 with Jason and Kelly in Fort Belvoir, VA and 2009 in Philadelphia. Jeff hasn't had Thanksgiving in the same place twice since 1997, so we're building a bit of a tradition. We're making a very small dinner for the two of us with a crock pot turkey breast, gravy, mashed sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, rolls, and three varieties of mini pies that are probably two slices each. We are thankful we can be together for the holiday; Jeff has a ton of papers due and Jess still has eight exams in the last three weeks of the semester.

The picture at the left was from Jeff's dining out in DC in early November. There was roast beef and a lot of toasts. Not the bread kind of toasts, more like you start eating your beef and you stick a bite in your mouth and someone toasts something, so you stand up and pretend you're not chewing while your roast beef gets cold, - kind of toast.

For those of you we haven't told, we're going to Key West right before Christmas! We are spending the actual holiday in NC and have no idea what our other plans are - hopefully will take care of that over this holiday.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!
