Thanksgiving 2010

We had such a blessed Thanksgiving. Brian's family from Texas, Georgia, and Indiana all came down. Some we have not seen in 2 or three years. It was so much fun, and a lot of kids!! I got to see my brothers and their families who I haven't seen in months. I wanted to share some of the moments we were able to share. We had Christmas with Brian's family, since they all will not be able to come back for Christmas. The kids got to open their first presents of the season, which they loved! Thanks to the fam for the many gifts and the good times!

Saturday was an exciting day for me. I got to watch my Bulldogs defeat Ole Miss. I have been wanting a cowbell for a long time, but do not have one. Before the game, my mom found this old cowbell of my grandfathers. I rang this with passion during the game. Brian left and went back to his moms. :)) To those of you who don't know, we are a split family. He is a rebel, excuse me, a black bear...just had to throw that in. Rumor is that I have a new MSU cowbell coming on Christmas Day...we'll see! GO DAWGS!

Gram, Brian's grandmother, knits everyone a stocking when they enter the family. This is all her children, grand kids, their spouses, and great grands! Wow!

...and they were all filled with goodies!

Brian's aunts all brought supplies to make up shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. We had an assembly line going. Mari Morgan really enjoyed this!

We are so blessed to have such wonderful families!
