I can't believe Thanksgiving is already here again. This will be my second Thanksgiving spent with Beth and her family. And although it's not the same as having Thanksgiving with my family, it's pretty darn close and the only other place I'd rather be. This year, Beth, Janet(Beth's sister) and I are running in a 5 mile race in The Woodlands called Run Thru the Woods on Thanksgiving morning. It should be a lot of fun and it'll be a good reason to get up and get some exercise before we stuff our faces later in the day. Beth's family also has the tradition of going out the day after Thanksgiving and getting their Christmas tree. Since we always had a fake tree growing up, this was a new experience for me last year. It's kind of cool how they just hand you a saw and you walk around until you find "the pefect tree." Then you just cut it down and they load it up for you. Beth and I have talked about what kind of tree we're going to have once we get married. We're still undecided. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I made a list.
Beth grew up in The Woodlands, Texas just north of Houston. Tony grew up in Bartlesville, OK. They met in 2005 when Beth started working with Tony in The Woodlands. On July 3, 2007, they got engaged and on July 26, 2008 they were married in The Woodlands. Tony and Beth welcomed their first child, Cole Edward, on March 18th, 2011. Tony and Beth love to travel and have been all over the world together to places like Australia, London, Paris, Brussels, Istanbul, Venice, Rome, Florence, Dubai, Oman, Thailand, and Hong Kong. Besides traveling, Tony and Beth enjoy running and completed their first marathon in Monterey, CA in April 2010.
