Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!  We started our day bright and early with a football game (it feels weird to not type the word "hockey" after the words "bright" and "early.")  Our town's high school team plays a yearly match against their rivals on Thanksgiving morning and we attend whenever we can.  Although it is played outdoors and without ice or blades, we all enjoy watching a little football.  Besides, its a great way to get some fresh air and root for the home team.

This year, Georgia and Josie wore the town's colors in their hair to show their support for the black and red.



It was a freezing cold morning, but the sun was out and that made it more tolerable.




Our team played an amazing game including a pretty spectacular sack of the quarterback ,which led to a fumble, which our team then picked up and returned 75 yards for a touchdown. 



We lucked out and got seats right next to the marching band and the cheerleaders, which meant that Georgia and Josie got bored after 20 minutes instead of five.  On Thanksgiving, one must be thankful for the little things!

We're cooking our Thanksgiving feast now and watching professionals play football on tv.  I hope everyone is having an equally wonderful day!

Henry looks so cute in a hat! I expected to see him in shorts and swim goggles.

He does, doesn't he? It makes him look very wee. And as for the shorts thing, thank goodness he put on pants.... it was COLD.
