We had a wonderful Thanksgiving here in Springfield. We were invited over to the Patton-Allans where we joined their family and friends for a delicious feast.

 Ray's brother, sister-in law and nephew joined us from Athens, Georgia. Kerry's parents came from Georgia and Ray's parents arrived from California.

 On Friday Dan, Annie and I drove down to Roaring River State Park where we went for a long hike along the river and then up through the woods. After our hike we drove to Noel where we dropped off our Christmas cards with a volunteer at the post office who stamps them with the Noel Christmas stamps.

Annie found lots of good sticks in the woods
This year we are thankful for our terrific friends and family and our wonderful dog :-).
