I have always loved the holidays! My favorite is either 4th of July or Thanksgiving, mainly because people get to wrapped up in the gifts than spending time with family and friends. This year JP had a week off November 9-18, so we went home. That was our Thanksgiving/Christmas run, since he had to work last night and will have to work Christmas eve, Christmas Day, New Years eve and New Years day. It was a long world wind trip, but I think we managed to see most all of our family. On the way back from the airport we managed a trip to the BassPro Shop. JP and Casey thought that stop was a must. I will say I kinda enjoyed it though. They had the bottom part of store set up like Santa's Winter Wonderland. Santa was there for pictures with his elves and a few reindeer. They had little games/toys set up to play with and fudge galore. It was pretty neat in my eyes. Casey and JP went hunting, moma and I went antique shopping. When we got to Mark and Sharon's, we tried to play rummy.

Yesterday, we went to Canyon to spend time with some of Nanny's family. Canyon is about an hour and a half from Lubbock. Jered and Kim have just moved into their new house and had her brothers and parents and all of his family over. It was quite a crowd. There was so much food, after we ate it didn't look like anyone had touched anything. I was so excited that they invited us over! Although I was prepared for it to just be us, I wasn't really looking forward to it. Last year I tried to cook for just us and it didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. :)

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
