Thanksgiving Recap

We had a wonderful, whirlwind trip to Texas for Thanksgiving. A few highlights:
  • Visiting Whitney and her little boy, Finn
  • Baking apple pie and Grandma's rolls with Mom and Hannah
  • Playing Just Dance with Hannah and Matt
  • Introducing cousin Justin to our family's craziness
  • Walking and talking with my Dad
  • Enjoying a GIGANTIC Thanksgiving dinner with Darby's extended family
  • Eating my first meal at Babe's Chicken Dinner House. Yum!
Because we went to Oklahoma City with Darby's family, I had to miss out on my annual Black Friday shopping trip with my sister. I was sad, but she understood, and I was glad we were able to see all of Darby's extended family, especially his grandpa. 

The sibs

Hannah playing "airplane" with Matt. She's very strong.
The beautiful table at Darby's aunt's house. We were able to fit 18 people around one table. It was awesome!
As always, I have much to be thankful for: family and in-laws that I truly look forward to spending time with, close friends, both old and new, a spouse I can be with 24/7 and still not be tired of. Now I'm trying to maintain that spirit of gratitude as I push through to the end of the semester. I just want it to be Christmas! I have to remember that, when I was working, I dreamed of being back in school. This is what I want to be doing. That's my new mantra. :)
