Cottage getaway

This year for Thanksgiving, we had no plans for dinner with friends like we have had the past 3 years and Dave and I were feeling especially nontraditional. So, we threw caution to the wind and packed up Wed. afternoon and headed for the hills. About 1 1/2 hours away is an army fort that offers fun little cottages and cabins on the lake. We stayed in the "Gettysburg", a nice little cottage with a living room, a bedroom and a full kitchen. We brought movies, explored and hiked around, and pretty much vegged out for 2 days.

Our Thanksgiving dinner: some leftover ham, mashed potatoes, rolls, and a pumpkin pie Dave made, all while watching "Cars". The easiest thing I have ever done!

Pete found a whole lot of amusement with the unlimited supply of acorns on the ground. He filled his pockets to the brim!

Dave and I took turns taking a family picture with the boys by the lake.

Can't get enough of that cheeeeze face.
