Family, Friends, Food & Football - Thanksgiving Success

We just returned from an amazing Thanksgiving week in Atlanta.  It was filled with family, friends, food and football.  We arrived in Atlanta just in time to watch the Jackets trounce UVA.   It was the kids first game on campus and my first in over a decade!  We followed that fun by teaching the kids the proper response to "What's the Good Word?" when the GT women trounced UGA in basketball.

Catching up with GT friends made the visit to our alma mater all the sweeter.  It may be years between visits, but friends from college are friends for life.  We laughed and reminisced and hoped the kids weren't listening when we talked about some of the antics of younger years.

While football may be a Thanksgiving tradition, it is really about gathering together.  Our trip was truly a reunion.  All week family and friends opened their homes and their hearts.  We shared the holiday with Auntie Em, Nana, and all of my extended family.  We enjoyed tons of great home cooked food and some of our favorite Atlanta restaurants.

Now, we are home in California and back to work and school tomorrow.  It was a great trip and a perfect way to kick off the holiday season.  Put away the fall decor it is time for Christmas galore.

That is life in MomZania.
