We headed to Phoenix, AZ for the week before Thanksgiving this year.  Nick had some work to do there and we could see my parents for a quick day before they left.  We celebrated with them for Ivan’s birthday as well as a carnival at Alexa’s school. Alan, Nick’s dad came in town from TX and took us all to a football game. It was my first and I have to say I enjoyed it. It helped that we were almost surrounded by other Raiders fans and the Raiders won the game.

We then hung out for the week, fought sickness and spent Thanksgiving day together. We headed home Friday after Thanksgiving just in time for some Black Friday shopping.
