It seemed kind of weird to be home in the states since it’s been so long, but we got back in the groove. No better way to do so than to share a Thanksgiving meal with family and friends. After hitting a few stops along the way, we stuck to our tradition and retreated to the Mountain House for the weekend. We were able to once again share in the tradition with Nona and Grandaddy Z and Gammy and Grandma. There was lots of pre-Christmas cheer to go around, gingerbread house building and cookie making and longs hikes and tours of our favorite Nellysford places.
