This was our first Thanksgiving in our new home. It was a special day with family, food and friends. Melanie made her famous deviled eggs and Jamie did the traditional chocolate pies and mashed potatoes. Jamie's parents arrived with a mince pie (much to mine and Greg's delight)! We all ate too much and UT won the game so they all went away happy!

Greg's Mother who is 91 years old came from Amarillo to visit us. She is remarkable for her age.
We have not had her for a visit in 4 years so we were very pleased that she made the trip. She loved the new house and seemed to enjoy her time here.
Elise bonded with her right away and they had lots of tea parties together.
Of course we took many pictures!! Here are a few:

Washington, DC

Greg and I went to Washington last week. The weather was cool and the leaves were changing.
I attended a conference by day and Greg did the museums. I did catch an afternoon at the zoo with him. That zoo is great. If you ever get a chance I highly recommend it.
