Thanksgiving Fun

Swimming in November...No Joke!

The kids had an absolute blast!

Can you see that my sis' dog joined in on the fun?

This year we spent Thanksgiving in Texas. We were all so excited to be back in our "home" state. It was a joy-filled time, and so special because all of my siblings and I were together for the first time in 3 years. We had a chance to visit and just enjoy each others company.When we arrived on Tuesday evening, the temperature was way above normal at a beautiful 80 degrees. Wednesday it reached almost 90, and our kids thought it was summer. They begged Aunt M and Uncle M to heat the water in their swimming pool, which they graciously did, and everyone swam for an hour or so. The weather was perfect! ...but, it being Texas and all, the weather changed just as quickly to cold weather and on Thanksgiving, we needed jackets (still not as "cold" as at home). We enjoyed lots of fun times with family...and did I mention that we ate, ate and ate some more. Our Thanksgiving Feast was more than enough... God definitely provided! I always enjoy my momma's home cooking, and the feast we had every night while there was no exception. On Friday we opted out of the whole "black-Friday" mess (not really anything we needed on sale anyway), and we took all the kids/cousins to the Zoo. We had a marvelous time...looking around, acting silly and enjoying the sunshine and cool temperatures. The whole weekend was filled with God's many blessings, laughter and love. I am so thankful for the Love of Family!
