The Christmas Season is Here!

We had a great Thanksgiving weekend. Thanksgiving was nice and low key, the kids enjoyed playing Wii with Uncle Robbie and we had a nice quiet dinner (which was very tasty, thank you honey!). I was off on Friday, Lauren worked half a day so we could go to get our tree...low and behold the tree farm was CLOSED! So Friday night we headed down to my dad's to see Cody and Ace. We had a good time, kids loved playing with Hope and Adi (and Pops). I had two races this weekend, the PA State Cyclocross Championships right down the road in Allentown and the Phelps School Cycylocross about an hour away near Villanova University. Two great races (video link to follow). Sunday after I got home we went to get the tree (yup, we made sure they were open before we left!). Here's a picture of the annual pilgrimage...but warmer than usual. If I had a nickel for every time Autumn asked if we found the right tree yet, she could get through her first year of college! But we had fun, that's all that matters.
Then we got the lights on and started decorating...serious business for Joshua!
Was nice to see Aunt Nan and Uncle Tom at Carolyns for dinner (chef Mike whipped up som very tasty vegetable lasagna).
Here's the video from Sunday's race. I'm in the front row, far left in the white kit. This was an extremely wide open and fast course. Conditions were perfect, probably high 30's to low 40's.
