My father turned 90 this year, and my brother, Jeff, flew from Washington DC for the celebration. Dad started the day by celebrating at the local donut shop with friends he and my mother had made over the years.
Later in the month, both Mom and Dad went to their favorite optometrist for an eye exam. You can always count on getting excellent care from Aaron.
Before we knew it, Thanksgiving Day was here. We always begin the day with a turkey trot that Aaron started several years ago--bring food items to replenish the food pantry at church and then choose to walk or run either two miles or a 5K. I got to push Ella's stroller this year. It will probably be the last year I push anyone in a stroller.
Aaron spends time mapping out the course, and adds little notes of encouragement close to the finish line.
We always celebrate Thanksgiving at Aaron and Christa's home. With my mother no longer being able to make the pies, Charlotte took over that responsibility, and they were delicious.
Two days later was my official birthday and we had a family celebration--takeout from our favorite Mexican restaurant, and donuts--so much better than a cake!
Waiting for the football to be kicked...
We had the grandkids Sunday afternoon after Thanksgiving while their parents were enjoying the coast. It sounded fun to take a horse-drawn carriage ride around Old Town Clovis.
