Thanksgiving 2008

This year was some what difficult. Once, again we decided to stay in TN for Thanksgiving. Driving for 8 hours just to spend 2 1/2 days in Georgia didn’t really to appeal to Jim and me.

We both woke up Thanksgiving morning homesick and wishing that we would have gone to see family and then the kiddos didn’t have the best day. As lunch approached Jim and I looked at each other and just wished the day would hurry up and end. Yes, we were very thankful but we wanted to be in Georgia with family.

To sum up the rest of the day I will make a list:

1. No Judd don’t touch me
2. Jake, No mine
3. Dry Ham
4. Runny Macaroni
5. I’m not hungry mommy.
6. I am thankful for Mommy, Jake, Daddy, Anna Kate, Judd, Bible and Jesus.
7. Mommy, watch Anna Kate smile at me.
8. Will you read to me?

8:30- Kiddos in bed and the day is done.

Before going to bed, Jim and I did thank the Lord for our family and His faithfulness. We also decided that we will be driving to Georgia next year. Once every three years isn’t too bad.
One bright spot in our day was when we took the boys on the back of our property raked leaves and let them play. Here are a few things pictures to capture of Thanksgiving week. The first picture is our Thankful tree that we started a few weeks before Thanksgiving.

  1. hi Stephanie! I came across your blog from…hmm, wait, how did I get here? oh, yes, from Angie’s blog (we were friends when we lived in GA, now we live in TN). Anyway, your post about Thanksgiving struck a chord with me and I wanted to email you, but I couldn’t find an email address. Would you mind if I sent you an email? Let me know…mine is, you can email me and then I’ll have yours. 🙂 Hope you are having a wonderful week! Sorry this is so long… 🙂
