Georgia Thanksgiving


Last week Jace and I flew to Athens, Georgia to have Thanksgiving with his family. It was a great reunion because we hadn’t seen Jace’s brother and sister in law in about a year. We also got to meet our niece Mary Elise for the first time. She had me wrapped around her little finger the moment we walked through the door!

I have made a few observations about Georgia. The main one is everyone uses more butter in a meal than I would use in a month. I thought it was just Paula Deen that had the butter obsession, but no. Its everyone in Georgia! My other observation was that everything we ate was amazing! So Georgians, keep shoving butter in everything and I will visit and eat all that I can. However, my arteries can only handle once or twice a year so I’ll have to make it good while I’m there. Needless to say, we had a great Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey, sweet potatoes, stuffing and so much more.

Can you see the heavens shining down on our turkey? It was that good!

I also got to go to my first Christmas tree farm. I was so excited. We have always had fake trees and while they have been great the real ones were so pretty. There were rows and rows of trees in all sizes and shapes. You could even get a Charlie Brown Christmas tree if you wanted. We picked the most perfect one, chopped it down and took it home. You think Griswold’s Christmas Vacation was outrageous? You should see us trying to get the tree home. It was quite entertaining.

It was a great week. I am truly blessed to be a part of this amazing family. I always come home feeling so loved and I couldn’t ask for a better group to be loved by. You guys are amazing. Thank you for letting me be a part of your lives. Justin and Margaret, thank you for opening up your homes and lives to us even if it was just for a week. We appreciate everything you did, from the wonderful meal to your gracious hospitality. We love you so much!
