Happy Thanksgiving

As a family we have a lot to be thankful for, everyone is health, and doing pretty well. Mostly, Ryan and I are thankful that we get to leave this cold weather in 6 days and enjoy the warm PR sun.

I hope everyone has a nice holiday!
We miss you all!

Favorite things.....

Right now, one of Ryan's favorite toys is his trains. He doesn't like set the train tracks up in circular routes, however. He's more of a cross-country kind of guy. In the pictures below he put all the tracks together in one big line that stretched from one room to the other. Then he would run from one end to the other waiting for Thomas to arrive so he could turn him around. I don't know, but I think he might have a bright future with Amtrak some day.

PR here we come!

In my excitement about our upcoming trip to Puerto Rico, I told Ryan that we were going. That may have been a mistake. It's just under a month away and normally I wouldn't have told him so far out. For this reason........
Ever since I told him, he has asked me several time a day, "Can we go to Puerto Rico Now?"
To try and help him understand when we are going we made a paper chain to count down the days. We did this for his birthday and that went really well. We would tear a link off every night right before bed, which helped motivate him to go to bed at night. (An added bonus)
Here is our Puerto Rico chain!
I can't wait!
