I can't believe that another month has just zipped right on by! It is almost December, Christmas is right around the corner, and before we know it 2013 will be here. Really, where did November go?
Jim came to town the week before Thanksgiving and Adam flew in the Friday prior. It was wonderful to have the whole family together for the holiday. Thanksgiving Day was fun and festive, as usual. Twenty-six of us gathered at Nancy's house and enjoyed the yummiest turkey & fixings ever. The day was actually very warm - I think the high was at least 60 degrees - and some of the group spent time at the park. Jacob even wore shorts! We had another spirited game of guys vs. girls Taboo, with the guys pulling out a (lucky) victory at the very last minute.
On Sunday, the 25th, we celebrated the November birthdays at our condo. Adam turned 24 and Nancy turned 60-something. In between all the partying, we shopped for and bought some new living room furniture. In order to make room for it, we had to haul our old couches down to our tv room, and that included descending two sets of stairs while negotiating several tight twists & turns. It is a good thing that the delivery guys carried in our new sectional because Jim and I are getting way too old to be moving furniture. (To be honest, I didn't do anything except open doors. Jim, Adam, and Jacob did all of the heavy lifting.) Jim went back to work in Texas and Adam jetted off to Colorado earlier this week. Before long, though, they will be back for Christmas vacation!
