Thanksgiving 2011

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
his love endures forever.
1 Chronicles 16:34

As usual, Thanksgiving was busy for us.

We started out Wednesday night at Dan and Celia’s house for dinner. Kate, Gray, Joyce and Brent joined us as well. We had yummy spaghetti and a delicious spice cake. Will provided the entertainment and it was a great night.

Thursday morning, we were up with the sun and hit the ground running. Our first stop was Roanoke. We went to Shawn and Greg’s house to see them and visit with that side of Clay’s family.

After our morning visit with them, we headed to Wedowee for lunch with Clay’s Mawmaw. It was a beautiful day and Will loved getting to run around outside.

We spent some time riding on the 4-wheeler, playing basketball, and exploring the farm.

Lunch was amazing. It’s something about being in Wedowee and eating Mawmaw’s food, it just feels like home. There is no false pretense, you can be yourself and stuff yourself silly.

Soon, it was time to leave and head back home for dinner with my parents. My parents spend the day cooking and the food was great. The only disappointment was that we headed to Auburn right after dinner, so no leftovers for us.

As busy as it was, we are so thankful that we have so many wonderful places to visit and people there who love us. Clay and I are always overwhelmed at the love our families show to us and Will.
