Fall Formal Pictures

Happy Thanksgiving!

We decided to be adventurous this year. With the kids already waking up early, we headed to NYC to watch the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade live and in person. We found a great viewing location in front of the Time Warner building at Columbus Circle. And the balloons looked much smaller in person. We headed home as soon as we saw Jonathan's favorite - Spiderman. Hope everybody had a happy Thanksgiving.

Investiture as a Girl Scout Daisy

Helena officially became a Girl Scout Daisy last week during a formal investiture ceremony. We appreciated all of the support we received from family and friends during the magazine and nut sale. Girl Scout cookies are in the spring!!!

Washington D.C.

The family went to Washington D.C. for the long holiday weekend. We hit some museums and the zoo, and visited cousins living in the area.
