A Thanksgiving full of thanks!

We spent this Thanksgiving partly at my parents house and partly at the ranch. Since we are spending Christmas in Louisiana I wanted to have turkey and all the fixin’s at my parents house. We drove in Wednesday night and stayed at my parents house until Saturday morning, then we drove to the ranch to continue our Thanksgiving weekend and to celebrate one of my Aunt’s, Aunt JoAnne, 50th birthday.

Mom and I cooked and baked in the kitchen and Dad carved the turkey.

We got to spend a lot of time with our beautiful niece Sydney! She is growing up so fast! It won’t be too long before she is taller than me. Seriously.

Of course, you can’t go to the ranch and not shoot guns.

The longhorns wanted to say hi. The picture on the right is of the 3 calves that were born a few months ago. They wouldn’t come any closer to the house and the Momma’s were not about to let me get close to their babies. Nor did I want to try.

Griff took Charley for a ride. {Not really. He was going to the dear stand and needed me to keep her at the house and not follow him.}

The girls played HARD and slept all the way home. After Griff gave them baths they went right to sleep! Tired puppies!

We had a great Thanksgiving and we are so thankful for the love of our families.
