Schmonlin Thanksgiving

We had a joyous Thanksgiving with the Schmid and Franklin families.  Bob is Keith's "other brother" and he, Debbie and the kids are just like family, so it was great fun to spend the holiday with them.  We were also joined by another family who are friends of the Schmids - 14 in all.  As predicted in a previous post, there was a LOT of cooking, clean up, football and napping, but it was all great fun and we were very THANKFUL to be able to share it with great friends and family.  Bob had to go back to work (he's a pilot for Horizon Air) on Friday, but we had fun with Debbie, Landon, Kaylin and Kyra.  It was extra fun to be around the kids as they decorated the house for Christmas.  

Our weekend also included a quick visit with our niece, Rachel, her husband Mike and their girls.  We hadn't seen them in a long time and it was great to visit with them, catch up with their family, see their lovely home, and even have some fun with all the crazy dachshunds who are also members of the Salter family.  We would have loved to have had more time to spend with them.  

As the saying goes, "Time flies when you're having fun."  The weekend went WAY too fast.  There's just never enough time to do everything and see everyone we would like to.  We missed having Alex with us - just didn't seem right without him there, but road trips with Whit and Trav are always great fun for us.  

And now we look forward to Christmas.  While we were gone Alex set up the tree and brought in the boxes of decorations.  So many good times to anticipate and more holiday stories to blog......
