Last week Kyle & set off for our annual Thanksgiving week in Virginia. We were especially excited this year since
last year we weren't able to be with our families.
On Thanksgiving morning, we both participated in the annual Alumni Fun Run. It is alumni from all the high schools in Chesterfield County (my old hood!). There is usually a pretty good turnout and it is a good way to get the blood pumping for consuming large amounts of marshmallows with a wee bit of sweet potato underneath! At least that is MY favorite thanksgiving dish!
Since living in Texas, I have discovered a new delicacy- cake balls. I never really put two and two together that this could possibly be a strange name for a tasty treat- but they were the butt of many good humored jokes at the Thanksgiving table. Aside from the funny name, they were quite yummy! Here we are posing with our infamous cake balls- or as Kyle dubbed them "cakesticles".

Needless to say, we had a great week and were sad to leave. We got back Saturday afternoon and spent the weekend decorating for Christmas and celebrating Kyle's b'day! Not just any birthday either- the big one (for the next 10 years at least) 30! For those of you who know us well, we kept with our annual birthday tradition and celebrated with nachos, junk food and our favorite movie of all time- Wedding Crashers! Always a good time. Today is officially Kyle's birthday- so wish him a happy birthday!
