Thanksgiving in Mississippi

I am very grateful for all the special people and things in my life. Also, for how happy and healthy my girls, Schuyler and I are. Being a mom, a wife, taking care of home, having a job, etc. can sometimes be a little stressful but these are the times that I realize how much of a blessing they truly are. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

We took our annual trip to Big Creek Mississippi for Thanksgiving to see Schuyler's family and we had a nice time. It was so nice to see everyone and to see how all the families have grown. With all the little ones around this year it sure made the house a lot more fun and lively than in the past years. The family all meets there, at the house on the farm every year. The farm normally produces cotton and this year, for the first time after the cotton was harvested they also grew sweet potatoes that the kids enjoyed picking. As for the car ride...the girls did as best as can be expected on a 10-12 hour car ride. Here are a few pics from the trip.

The car ride there.

The girls walking on the long driveway to the house.

The girls standing on what I lovingly call "The Troll Hole". It is down the street from the house and always looks a little scary to me.

It looks like you guys had a great visit. It is nice to be in the cold weather. I love living here when it is cold, which it hasn't been too much lately. Your girls are very cute.
