Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone!
We and many of our friends have had an 18 or 19 year tradition.
The tradition is playing football first thing in the morning on the Thursday that celebrates the Pilgrims and their landing on Plymouth Rock.
This game has been played by the founders for many many years, but lucky for us they have extended it to others along the way.
There have been Pastors, Carpenters, Pilots, Lawyers, Accountants, Teachers, CIA Agents, Realtors, Mothers, Fathers, Husbands, Wives, Brothers and Friends, Penn State Alumni, Texans, Irish, Protestant, Catholic, Jewish and Atheist who have participated in this tradition.
Each year there have been play after play that have come from secret play lists and viewed by watching several game tapes from secret societies. The "W" or the "Tree" is called out from the huddle on any given game day.
The game goes by for two or so hours, but the soreness goes on for days. But who cares when the rush of the game, the smell of the crisp morning air and the fans from the side lines cheer you on.
The Game Day.

Here is the game 2010. On a new field with some new faces.

The fans.

The game is now over, but there is whispers of another one in the month of December. Stay tuned for those of you who couldn't make this game. You were missed.

I love the game of football on Thanksgiving day. Now that I am a momma I do miss catching the ball thrown by my QB1 hubs or snatching the flag off the tail of a competitive female which will go unnamed (she knows who she is).
I will be back dont' you worry.

P.S. Greg Vest is still sore today and it is Sunday.

After the game

We had a wonderful day with our families. Elizabeth enjoyed her first lemon. She really did kindof enjoy it and we enjoyed the look on her sweet little face.

And Carolina enjoyed a sweet time with her cousins.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. Hope you all had the best day~
We are thankful for you.
