First, for Thanksgiving, we went to Florida to visit Kyle's family. It was sort of a last minute decision as we had just made a trip there in September after not seeing them for 9 months. But we were *thankful* to be able to go and spend some time with Kyle's Nonna (Italian for Grandmother) who just turned 81 years old. She's still a spunky lady!
We really enjoy any length of time we get to spend with our family. When you live so far away, for as long as we have, you learn to really cherish these memories together.

Holidays are always kind of a blur. It took us a while to get our tree but it finally went up first week in December. We're those wait-until-after-thanksgiving Christmas decorating kind of people. :-)
Kyle made a wreath all by himself. Isn't it nice? You'll never guess what it's made out of, other than the Christmas tree branches. Leave a comment and guess!
So then we went to Virginia to visit my folks for Christmas, which has always been a special time for my family. Of course it is for everyone. We had a great time. We spent a whole whopping 4 days there. For us, that's a long time.
