We had a great meal with great friends and family. But first, the Turkey Trail Trot.
We waited patiently for Matt to finish. Turns out he was 35th overall in the 5-miler and 4th for his age. So, we didn’t have to wait very long.
At the very last minute I got the Thankful Tree up with a few leaves from years past and painted the branches a few minutes before our friends arrived. Better late than never.
Simba snuggled up to anyone and everyone. Such a snuggler, that little guy.
Sara and Julia were best buds in preschool so they had a blast, although they spent most of their time together locked in Julia’s bedroom to keep the little brothers out. Meanwhile, Zohair and Nicholas are easy-going pals and tried their best to ignore the big sisters.
On Wednesday, Matt was off, Grammy was here, and my office closed before lunch. We caught a gorgeous rainbow at my office.
And I set up everyone with Oculus VR for a few minutes. They’re one of my clients. My mom “went” to Yosemite with Obama, Matt checked out a demo that featured all sorts of amazing tech and the kids loved it, too.
We made our way down to Crissy Field.
Friday it was out with the pumpkins, in with Christmas. We did a lot of chores and things around the house, took naps, and watched too much tv.
Grammy took a few shots of the garden. Thank goodness for low maintenance design and picking the right plants – we’ve barely touched a thing in two months and, aside from a few clover weeds because of all the rain, it’s looking great.
