Cranley Christmas

This past weekend was a very relaxing and un weekend for us. We had Duke's family Christmas early this year and all got together at his brother Mike's house on Sunday. We had so much good food, watched the Bears game and the kids opened presents. It was so nice to see everyone. Even though we all live close to each other, it still seems like we don't see them enough. Here are few pics. There is one where our cute little nephew Jack is in the background falling on the nativity scene. it was too funny! If only we got it on video. Also, Duke wore his favorite ugly holiday ensamble. He looks like where's waldo in these pics.

Hope you are all enjoying the holidays.

Thanksgiving in PGH

We had a great time in Pittsburgh for Thanksgiving. We were able to spend a lot of time with Grayson. He's getting so big! How cute is he as a pumpkin??!! There was a little snow, but it wasn't too cold so the guys deep fried the turkey next to a bonfire with some beers and some tunes from Duke's car. they had much more fun out there than they would have inside.

Mom made an amazing meal that we enjoyed with my Aunt Molly, her husband Vernon and my cousin Maddy and we then spent the afternoon by the fire playing Loaded Questions (thanks for letting us borrow the game Kathryn).

Duke, Adam, Kelly and I went out for some drinks at a new place my mom had been telling us about - Devine's. It was a nice little place in the neighborhood. It is supposed to have jazz singers at night and I would not call the guy with the guitar a jazz singer. He was more a 90s hits singer. This place needs some Keely Singer!!

We headed home on Sunday on what was a very long drive due to traffic and weather, but we're still excited to head back to PGH in a few weeks for Christmas. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving.

P.S. What do you think of Duke's beard?? I actually liked it, but it's gone now:(
