Happy Thanksgiving!

an original by Vincent
We had a very nice Thanksgiving for the second year in a row at Hotel Hershey with the Spivak cousins (except for David who is in France), Aunt Adele and Uncle Ed, and Z and GG.  I don't have any pictures since I checked my camera with my coat, oops.

We had a very busy week leading up to Thanksgiving, it was Grandparents Day at Vincent's school and Z and GG and Grannie were able to come.  On Wednesday we had a visit in DC with Toots and Poppie who were staying at the St. Regis one block from the White House, and Rachel and Jon and Sam and Bea who were in from Austin, and Aunt Shana.

Driving to Carlisle, Hotel Hershey lobby, fun at Bruce and Marjorie's, Days Inn, next day a visit to the US Army Heritage and Education Center.  Some good pizza and an Italian hoagie before we hit the road home.

We've been busy with school and work and soccer and traveling so there are lots of pictures to catch up on.  Alex's last soccer game of the fall season was a draw and they will receive a trophy for their school.

Alex's last soccer game
CE1 "Last match for our little ones who finished the season with a 4-4 draw against the other undefeated team in the conference.  They were led 4-1 and came back with the encouragement of the crowd tied at 2 min of the end!  They could win in the final seconds ... but this score parity leaves undefeated and first tied teams!"

end of October

We were busy with school, soccer, and Halloween.  Alex dressed up as a skeleton and Vincent was a fireman.  Alex and Vincent enjoyed trick or treating for the second year in a row.

Rose's Annual Halloween Party.  A beautiful sunny day this year for the party.

Alex's soccer team is undefeated!  "Saturday, November 2The CE1/CE2 won their seventh game in a row 2-1 against a very combative team ... they are one game off the perfect season"
