Thanksgiving adventures!

Hello everyone and let me be perhaps the first to remind you that there are only 24 shopping days left until Christmas!!! Wow--has time gone by quick or what?

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with our friends (who really are like our family) as well as my great friend from way back to my high school days: Rachel!

Rachel was in Philly for a conference (she lives in Texas now) and I made the short jaunt to pick her up so she could come up and visit Tom and I for Thanksgiving. I hadn't seen Rach since '94 or something like that, but we have been in touch over the years. It was great to see her and she and Tom of course got along great! We had tons of laughs and crazy memory moments-----and Tom being the wonderful, easygoing husband he is, just turned up the tv a bit louder when our cackling got too loud (of course that made us laugh even harder!)

After tooling around Philly some and seeing the important historical attractions (such as the Liberty Bell, Ben Franklin's grave, ...the Rocky statue...) we headed back to our house and enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with our friends and neighbors Frank and Patti and their family.

After Thanksgiving Rach and I had a fun day touring the city seeing all the Christmas windows and decorations. It was the perfect way to put us in the mood for the season. As I have said before, there is nothing more fabulous than NYC at Christmas time. Tom and I will go in next week to see the tree at Rockafeller Center all lit up as well as the other sights. This is one of our many east coast traditions now and we LOVE it!!

Attached are some pictures from the weekend!
