It's the most wonderful time of the year...time for thankfulness and embarking on a season of giving. I have so much to be thankful for this year.
Tuesday we went to Sam's Thanksgiving program at the Otter Creek School. His Kindergarten class did the program and songs that the OC Kindergarten has been doing for years. It is a special day for all those affiliated with that school. Sam rocked it as an Indian brave!

Wednesday night we embarked on our family tradition with the Williamsons since the early 90's. Byron and Beth are like another set of parents for Sheryl and me and have been for many years. We love them so much!
