Giving Thanks

We had a great Thanksgiving this year. Mark's friend Alan Lu participated with us in all things Thanksgiving, which made this year extra fun, I think. We started off with the annual Castleberry tradition of running (ok,walking) the Turkey Trot. We do this every year,rain or shine. This was Ryann's first Turkey Trot, and she really enjoyed all of the people. We then headed to my parent's house for Tgiving lunch/dinner. Friday we headed to the Lambs for Thanksgiving, round 2. Alan showed us how to use chopsticks and I got to eat my favorite dish of all time, macaroni and cheese. All in All it was a great Thanksgiving weekend.

On another note, we had fun watching little Barrett Wood last Tuesday night. Isn't he so very cute?Ryann was quite the helper. In the following picture, she is wiping up Barrett's spit-up off his chin with her napkin. When I told her that it was time for Barrett to go "night night" she went and got a book and sat down by him and proceeded to read it to him in Ryannese.
