Thanksgiving week

Last week was a busy one for our little family. Thursday was Thanksgiving and we had a wonderful time with all of our family. Thanksgiving just might be my favorite holiday. It is a wonderful thing to have one special day dedicated to being grateful for all of the wonderful blessings we have been given - and we have more than our fair share! The food was awesome and the company was even better. Jasmine got to play with her cousin Maddie...
I got an early birthday surprise from Patrick and my cousin Brittany. She made me a beautiful, and might I add, delicious birthday cake.

Then on Friday, our little family headed north to San Francisco for the rest of the weekend. The main reason for the trip was to attend a Norte Dame football game at Stanford. The tickets were my present to Patrick for our anniversary. While we were up there we also go to visit Muir Woods and spent some time down at the pier. We had some amazing clam chowder and fish n' chips and Jasmine rode her first trolley.

This is a family of trees... love it!

Muir Beach... there is a little place right down the road called the Pelican Inn. We will go back to stay someday!

Not such a great picture of me... but Jasmine is sporting what we call the "Elvis face." It is hilarious, she does it all the time, we've been trying to capture it on camera for weeks now.

Jasmine and her daddy at the big game... can you tell how happy he was? Jasmine loved all of the cheering and enjoyed yelling with everyone else.

It was a quick trip, but a lot of fun. Jasmine was such a trooper - she was as happy as a clam in spite of the fact that she was fighting a cold. We bundled her up and she had a blast. It is so nice to have a baby that is such a good little traveler and who loves adventures as much as mom and dad do.
