Christmas is in the air

Tis the season for Christmas parties.  Friday night started off at the JW Marriott before heading to the Field Museum for the PwC Christmas party.   
The theme was Mardi Gras, the food and service were fantastic, and the band was rocking for this crowd of over 2500.

Obligatory shot with Sue.

On Saturday Joseph and Marty got us into the holiday spirit by tickling the ivories.

Molly was very surprised by all the people.

And Charlie fought off sleeping all night.

They had a photographer there, which was a great idea to get so many great pictures!

Thanksgiving South of the Border

We may have just started a new holiday tradition....Thanksgiving south of the border!!  Who can argue with this view?

 And these gorgeous sunsets.
 These two were quite happy about the warm weather.

 Soda pulled off a delicious expected.
 Friday we headed to Cholla Bay for Big Wave Dave's Chili cookoff.  Entry was a bag of dog food.

 We had a blast!  There were 16 entries.  All competitors and guests received a small cup to go around and sample all the chilis and then vote on their favorite.
 Benny's Northwoods Chili did not win, maybe next year!
 Then off to a sunset fiesta at Casa de Capitan.

 Saturday we took a gorgeous catamaran tour.

Hope you all had memorable Thanksgivings also!
