thanksgiving

My homesickness was both cured and exacerbated by our time home for Thanksgiving. We packed a lot into 4 days and were so glad to be around our families. Here are some highlights:

We started out in Cincinnati, here we are heading out to hunt for Jenna’s wedding dress. She found one in record time! She’s a simple gal who knows what she wants.

Eating Skyline Chili, of course. We’d been deprived for so long, but no worries we had our fix and now our stomachs are happy.

Hanging with Amos

Our time in Cincinnati was so good. It’s wearing being so far away from my family. I love them.

Then, it was off to Louisville.

Phil and I frequent Panera on weeknights to get some studying done together, and there is always a group of old dudes there playing chess. So, he’d been craving a chess game for the past couple of months. I literally cannot play chess, my mind can’t process it. So, he was excited to play a couple of rounds with his dad.

Christmas tree decoration.

A stop at Churchill Downs with the Beesons.

We are terrible at betting, minus Linda. The rest of us threw away all of our money and should never be allowed to show our faces at a race again.

Now we’re back in Jersey. I wish we weren’t, but we are, and that’s okay. Hopefully my homesickness will wear off quickly, and if not, at least Christmas is right around the corner.
