I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving and didn’t go completely broke during today’s shopping sprees.  We enjoyed a nice, local holiday with visits to each of parents and plenty of good food and great company.  I spent Black Friday hanging out with the kids, while Bethany and her Mom “enjoyed” their annual shopping spree that began before the sun even chose to rise this morning.  All in all, it’s been a great couple of days to mostly relax and enjoy family.

I will have a big announcement about Engaged Marriage coming the middle of next week, and I hope to write a few more posts this weekend in between several birthday celebrations (including Bethany’s).  In the meantime, enjoy this installment of the Round-Up, which is topped off with a clip from my favorite show on television: The Office!
