Thanksgiving - Part II - Friends and Family

Craig Rutman, your Raleigh/ Cary/ Apex area Real Estate Agent is thankful for his friends and family this Thanksgiving... and always!

Well, my dear readers, Thanksgiving is almost here.

Two of the most important things I'm always thankful for during this holiday (and always) are my friends and family.

Now I don't know about your family, but my family, although we live several hundreds of miles from one another, is always there when you need them, quite often when you don't need them, and, despite our very unique personalities, it's always a laugh fest when we all get together. And the same holds true for my friends who are as fun and crazy as, well, as ME!

This year, we unfortunately can't be together, but I'll be spending the holiday with my daughter Laura right here in the
Raleigh/ Cary/ Apex area.

So for those of you who are traveling to visit friends or family, or staying home and having them in for the holiday, remember to let them know how thankful you are to have them in your life.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Craig, We knew about Laura, but now it's a surprise to find out about the rest of the brood...What scary darling little boys. Too bad neither of them take after Heather!

Now that's a family portrait right out of one of the family albums one might find at 1313 Mockingbird Lane, or their neighbors at 1313 Cemetery lane. Regardless, enjoy the week.

Craig, I didn't know you and Heather were an "item" wonder her engagement got called off!  Her head's bigger than usual....but look how svelte Alan is looking!  Just in time for Thanksgiving. And it's funny no matter how much time goes by, you and Michael never change. Must be that southern livin'.

Happy Turkey Day to all. God Bless Us, Everyone...with razzleberry dressing. (oops, that's Christmas, I'm a little early for Tiny Tim).

Great family portrait Craig.  I see you didn't waste any time snatching up Ms. Locklear now that she is single again.  Oh wait, are you the reason she broke off her engagement?

Craig- Happy Thanksgiving and hope that you and Laura have a wonderful day together.  Love your recent family photo but it's a shame those two little ones didn't take after Heather.
