Gobble Gobble

We heard "gobble gobble" all the way down to Jupiter, Fl on Tuesday.  Clearly Evan learned a new animal noise just in time for Thanksgiving.

We spent the holiday at my grandparents with my Uncle Terry and my two cousins, Mom, Todd and Aunt Franny.  It was a full house condo to say the very least so we had to be creative in what to do not to be right on top of each other the whole time.  We made a trip to the beach while others went to the Navy Seal Museum.  Some of us went shopping while others went out to lunch - it was a constant shift to prevent sitting in a hotel room or overcrowding my grandparent's home.

We dined at the Jupiter Golf Club and filled our bellies with all the usual Thanksgiving goodies.  I have to admit that I was disappointed they did not have sweet potato casserole.  That is my all-time fav Thanksgiving dish and I was bummed that I missed out.  But Mom has volunteered to throw together a secondary meal for us next week that includes a few favorites that the club did not serve.  Do I sound like a brat? :)  Probably more like a pig.  Oink, Oink - that's what I was saying the whole way home from Florida.

In addition to the holiday, we also celebrated my Grandma's 80th birthday which is actually today (Happy Birthday, Grandma - Great Mimi)  I hope I'm playing 18 holes of golf 4-5 days a week when I'm that age.  And Grandpa just turned 94 and still as sharp as ever.  Talk about longevity... 

We had a wonderful trip, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I am SO glad to be home.  Ten hours on the road felt like two days.  But Evan was awesome so that made it a bit more tolerable.  We also spent some time rattling off things we're thankful for and family was at the very top of the list - along with some other superficial items like Dunkin Donuts coffee, pacifiers and college football - but our list was long!

Love the photos! We didn't get turkey at our thanksgiving, so we contemplated making one on our own.
