Happy Thanksgiving!

This week I got to fly down to Kentucky and spend some time with my Dad. It was wonderful! It was so good to see him! He did have to work, but we still got to spend a couple of hours together each day. And it was ok; while he worked I studied. I seriously underestimated how long it would take me to do these outlines....

Anyway, Thanksgiving with my Dad was so good. We ate our Thanksgiving feast at the Ponderosa. I had a strawberry Pepsi to drink. They didn't have cherry flavoring, but they did have strawberry. When the waitress read the order, she said "what?" and looked at me like I was crazy, but it was pretty good. So if you ever want to order a cherry coke/pepsi and they don't have cherry flavoring, ask them if they have strawberry flavoring (like for the lemonade). It'll be an adventure for your taste buds!

I'm getting really excited for Christmas. I decorated my house.... I don't have very many decorations to begin with, and apparently I didn't bring them all. So I have like four decorations up, but it's a tiny splash of Christmas, and that's enough. I'm still hoping for a Christmas miracle this year, that Dad will be able to come home, and we can all be together. I should have set up a skype account for him while I was there, so we could skype on Christmas Day (just in case my miracle doesn't come through.) Maybe I'll send him instructions....

Well at any rate, it was really good to see Dad for Thanksgiving. I needed a bit of a break from Albany, and what better place to steal away to then wherever family is? It was a really great Thanksgiving! I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving as well!


  1. Abby, thank you so much for the picture of you and Dad. It made my day!!! Your hair looks really cute, by the way. I know it meant so much to Dad to have you there for Thanksgiving and maybe your Christmas miracle will come to pass.

  2. I am glad that you got to spend Thanksgiving with your dad. I hope your Christmas wish comes true!!
