it's the holiday season

Thanksgiving was great. It's probably my favorite holiday. It's always super stressful leading up to the actual day but somehow it always manages to run smoothly. Ross and I ran the Drumstick Dash with friends from work and had a great time (even with no training!)...after that we hung out with my family. The first picture is Thanksgiving football, which has become somewhat of a tradition at the Meier house. Friday we went to Lafayette to see Ross's family and Sunday we relaxed around the house and put up the Christmas tree.
I can't believe it's December already. Our month is jam packed. I have finals this week and next and we have four Christmas parties in the next three weeks. Lucas has a bell concert on Thursday night to start off the festivities, and Saturday we have a joint birthday party - ugly holiday sweater party - white elephant party and I haven't been shopping yet! I have done a fair amount of Christmas shopping and am trying to finish up soon, for once!

Ross and Lucas saw the Pacers play the Oklahoma City Thunder at Conseco from the 1st row of spectators (3rd row counting media). They were right by Nastia Liukin! I was so jealous. I love the Olympic gymnasts!
Mom and Dad had a great time and made it home safely. I had to pick them up at the new terminal - it was quite an adventure. It is pretty far back from the highway exit but it's well laid out and there is a great deal of signage, which is good if you're like me and get lost easily!
I can't believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Ross and I have signed up to do a 2.6 mile run on Thanksgiving morning - the Drumstick Dash in Broad Ripple. We're running with one of my friends from work and her family...which means I need to start training now. I haven't run since we "ran" the Prostate Cancer run (that got rained out)!! Wish me luck...

I can't believe it's already November. So much has happened the past few weeks. Everyone in the family voted (Lucas and Max had a mock election at school where ironically McCain won by a landslide). I love this time of year. I don't love the leaves in our backyard but I love the holidays and being able to see family and friends. I started a new job a couple of weeks ago so hopefully I'll be able to share more often now.
