Thanksgiving in Indiana

Dan and I travelled to Indiana for Thanksgiving again this year. Dan spent the entire week before out there, and I flew out after classes on Tuesday. Unfortunately we didn't take many pictures... We were excited to have dinner with Dave & Jenni Peters, friends of ours who work at a church in Fishers (basically Indianapolis) doing sports and recreation-based ministry. Dave is a friend of Dan's from high school. That night we were also able to see Dan's brother, Mike, coach his high school varsity basketball team to a win! We then spent the evening eating some wings with Mike & Kendra, and Dave (thanks Jenni for letting us steal him for a night!).

Thanksgiving Day we planned to run the annual Drumstick Dash in Indianapolis - but cold weather and rain caused my teammates (aka, Mike, Kendra, and Dan) to convince me to not run. We did, however, get a good workout in that morning at Mike's school. Dan enjoyed playing around on Mike's new toy, Noah's Arc, a shot analyzer. I won't pretend to know what the heck it does..but they made me have a go around, and I have now been known to comment on the arc of players' shots. Geez. Thanksgiving Day of course was spent at Ted & Becky's, capped off by a BRONCOS WIN over the Giants!!!

Here's Dan and I sporting our his and hers Orton jerseys!
We were blessed to spend Friday afternoon and evening with our dear friends Jason & Emily and Josh & Katie. I always look forward to seeing my girls...and miss them so much!! How can you go wrong with a planned diet of scotcharoos, taco dip, a cheese ball, cherry pie, and pumpkin cheesecake. I think we were supposed to order pizza in there somewhere too...
