Happy Thanksgiving!

During a conversation with my Mom last night we were trying to figure out how many times we have been to Asheville for Thanksgiving.  I was convinced we didn't come in 2011 but she was sure we did.  Thanks to this handy blog post I was able to resolve the debate - 2011 was spent in Lexington.  That got me motivated to do a catch up post & hopefully get back on a somewhat regular cadence of blogging.

I will start with our most recent activities & work our way back.


Thanksgiving in Asheville with Steve & Mom.  Rented a cabin at Willow Winds - we love this place!  Cabins are great, close to everything but feels like it is in the woods plus backs up to the Mountains to the Sea trail.

Snow for Thanksgiving
Turkey Trot 5K - 19 degrees at start 
Steve won 2nd in AG 
Ice Fountain 
Hiking the Mountains to Sea trail 
Gravy Fail
Kansas City to visit Natalie & Rian.  These guys are old friends from when I lived in Chicago.  Can't get much better than these folks!  It was so great catching up with these two - a weekend wasn't long enough.  We went to a Chiefs game and even tailgated in the freezing cold!
