Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours. We were in McKinney, Texas visiting my side of the family over the holiday. There are five grandchildren here under the age of 6, so it's a party everywhere you turn. I woke up the morning of Thanksgiving, cooked with my mom (Paula Deen's stuffing-yum-, pecan pie, squash casserole) & then we had friends come over to the house. We ate the big feast around 3pm. Lincoln did great, & with every bite he took, he said, "Mmm, mmm,'s soo good!" He was quite enthusiastic about eating the turkey. Which, BTW, is named "Modene". The turkey's name has been Modene since I can remember, so Lincoln was super excited about calling the turkey by its appropriate name. Modene was super yummy this year.
Here are some photos that we captured the past few days that we were there:

And here's the newest member of our family, Miss Charlotte Scott. She's donning the newest fashion trend:

We are happy to be back home. The drive to Texas took about 10 hours each way. It was a very long drive, but also very fun with the boys. Lincoln & Levi played very well with each other...Lincoln made Levi laugh so hard. Although it was a very long ride, it was also really great family time.
I pray that your Thanksgiving was great too.
Post ya later,
