Family Time!

From Florida, Steve and I drove to Norfolk to see Natalie.  I had planned to spend a week with her while Dan was out on his ship and Steve arranged to work at a facility nearby.  It was so good to be with Natalie again and see Finley as well!  She's such a sweet dog!  

Steve and Natalie carved a pumpkin and I dressed Finley up for Halloween.

Natalie made some delicious treats to take with us to Atlanta for the surprise wedding celebration for Shelby and Scott that was being planned.
And I wrapped a lot of random items I'd received as giveaways on talk shows in L.A. so that we could have a white elephant exchange with everyone.
We had a fun week with Natalie and arrived very late in Atlanta on Friday night.  The poor cake we made just about didn't make it on the long car ride.  But it sure tasted good!  isn't the cake banner so cute that Natalie made?

Banners were hung and decorative wedding cookies that Allison made were served with the cake.  Steve and I were the only ones that were able to attend their wedding in London, Ontario so we all wanted to celebrate!

The next day we went to Allison's baby shower.  It was so much fun celebrating baby boy P's upcoming arrival.  I wish I had taken pictures : (

On Sunday we all went to Piedmont Park with food and games in hand.

That night we had the white elephant exchange.  It was a lot of fun seeing the random stuff that people ended up with- some of the gifts weren't so bad.

It was really nice to be together- it had been way too long!  We missed you Dan!  

Thanks Allison and Brian for having everyone and for all the delicious food!  And thanks to everyone for making the effort in order for us to all be together!

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!
