We were fortunate enough to spend my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving in Michigan surrounded by family. We timed our trip to coincide with Eric guest lecturing at the University of Michigan. It was a great opportunity for Eric and it was time to get the Hartner family back up in the air. We landed in the mitten in the midst of a major snow storm and woke up the next morning to a beautiful powdery blanket of snow at Christie and Jay's. We all suited up and played in the snow, something we haven't done in years and it was Adi's first time. Adi didn't like being cold but we manage a few snow angels, snow balls and a run on the sled.

After our snow play time, we headed north to see the Sever family and introduce Kai to Great Grandma, his aunts, uncles and cousins. It was a quick but fun visit.

We spent the rest of the week at Sandy and Pat's, hanging out with family, cooking Thanksgiving, meeting Santa, riding the four wheeler and watching Michigan football. Eric and I also managed a two day getaway to Ann Arbor, for him to guest lecture in the school of engineering. It was a fun two day visit, both business and pleasure. A special thanks to Sandy and Pat for watching the kids!
