Home for the Holiday


This past weekend Tim and I went home to Pennsylvania for our Thanksgiving break. We left Wednesday after our half day at GCA and we returned Sunday morning. Both of our families live in PA, just a half an hour apart, so we have a pretty good deal! We spent Thanksgiving Day with Tim's family at the Reynold's Mansion . It's a beautifully designed victorian home located in the Historic District of Bellefonte. There were 24 Baylors in all at our Thanksgiving table! We had a wonderful time fellowshipping, eating (too much!),and playing games with family.


Friday Tim and I traveled out to my parents farm house in State College. We kiddingly call it the "Jordan Compound". It was just my Dad, Mom and brother Josh who were home. We spent the time catching up on things, and playing Settler's of Catan (our favorite)!

The next day we went out with the family and a friend to a local 50's diner called "Babies". We had mini burgers, cheese fries, and Vanilla cokes. --Again-- just one more reason for me to get to the gym :o)

Overall, we had a great time with both of our families. We enjoyed the fellowship and time away.

I love the picture of you and Tim! It looks like you fit a lot into a short amount of time. I still can't believe that you got home so early in the morning!

Happy Thanksgiving to the Baylors! The mansion is just beautiful! Is this a annual thing or just once in a lifetime thing there? I agree with the others that the pic of you and Tim is really nice! Christmas picture?

Kat--
Yes, it is an annual thing that we do. It's a little pricey, but when we all split it up, it's not too bad.
