We had the pleasure of hosting some friends for Thanksgiving. My great friend Lizzy came from Virginia with her three girls (6, 4, 3) and Rolland's childhood friend Martin and his wife Katherine came from Conneticut. We had a really good time, despite the 2 feet of snow that came down Wednesday night!! The girls all loved playing with each other and I had help getting the house ready for Christmas!! On Friday Lizzy and I left the house at 4:30 to conquer Black Friday. Success!! Lizzy and I both finished our Christmas shopping and now can enjoy December. Later that day we braved a complete white out to drive to Old Forge NY in the Adirondacks for the Christmas celebration. We saw Santa and Mrs. Claus and took a scenic train ride to check out all the snow. There was so much more to do there, but with the amount of snow coming down we decided to head home rather than get stuck in it. Lizzy stayed until Monday so the rest of the weekend we relaxed, played in the snow, and took LOTS of pictures. I am so thankful everyone had a good time and a safe trip home. Happy Thanksgiving!!!
