Michael was able to take the 3 days before Thanksgiving for vacation, and we made a vacation of it. Our first one in a long time. We stayed the week with my parents. Just relaxing, visiting, playing all day outside,riding the tractor, and golf cart (the ride a golf cart around the fields) exploring the woods. Feeding turtles etc....It was wonderful.
Some good friends allowed us to borrow their 15 passenger van, so all 8 of us, plus the two dogs, and our stuff could all fit comfortably and it was such a blessing. It's my dream car, lol. Funny how dreams change over the years.
Still, after a week away, it was good to come home. I'm still working to get everything put back away, and really clean before Christmas. Sure hoping to travel shortly after the new year. Whew, that's exciting and scary all in one. God is faithful though, and I'm feeling so so blessed. Here are a few pictures. I still have to download the ones from Michael's camera.
Abram begged me to buy this hat. It didn't happen, lol.
Breakfast outside. It was cold outside, but so good!
Dinner (that's lunch around here, supper in the evening ;) )
With Grandmama and Granddad
Great fun with a stick and a hole in the ground, lol.
Doing the corn.
Vivian having a fresh made pork rind. She loved them!
My baby boy is growing up too! So handsome.
The kids helped Grandmama pick these greens, and now were getting ready to wash and pick them.
A few shoes outside the door, lol.
Vivian is a thrill seeker, lol. She loved doing this with Daddy.
We had lots of Uno games.
Building a huge leaf pile!
This is SO Olivia! Lives life with abandon.
