Thanksgiving day (after the race) my mom's side of the family, along with my dad's parents, came to our house for a Thanksgiving feast. Part of the reason I like Thanksgiving is to be able to see relatives we don't normally get to see or hang out with. The picture above is of my cousin Amy, Aunt Cynthia (my mom's sister), my mom, me, and my sister Molly...all of the girls from my mom's side of the family. These are people (along with Uncle Stan and my cousin Erin..who were also in attendance) that I don't get to see very often but it is so wonderful to feel the love when they are around. We can always just pick up were we left off and have a good time no matter...love that! I was also so happy to see my brother because I don't get to see him very often anymore since he moved and I was so thankful to see him smiling and happy!!!
Friday night after Thanksgiving we headed to Somerset, OH for the 2nd Annual West Village Pub Crawl....the picutre above shows us at pub #3. Last year Natalie, Kelly and I went to NYC and I started to realize how much everyone talked about the "villages". I got it in my head we weren't going to have fun until we went to one of those villages...and I was right the "villages" is where it's at! It was during this time that my cousin Kelly reminded us she lived in a village too and although it is a very small village with only 4 pubs (counting the American Legion) we created the West Village Pub Crawl...and I have a feeling it will continue for years to come :) We have a ball and I already can't wait for next year!
My weekend wasn't complete without heading to OSU campus to tailgate and cheer on the Buckeyes as they beat Michigan...I had so much fun I forgot to take any picures :( At any rate my long holiday weekend was awesome and I am sooo very thankful for the direction my life is headed. I am lucky for so many reasons and simply cannot wait to see where this year will take me and to hopefully continue to share it all with you! Now if I could just get my Christmas shopping done!!!!
