Hello to everyone...I hope you all had an amazing thanksgiving! Our thanksgiving was full of all kinds of love and laughter! We started off last Tuesday, November 20, by driving to Burnet to celebrate my brother's 18 birthday! We met him and the rest of the family there to have dinner and open presents...as the night unfolded he would get a present, always a radio, but progressively larger radios, until the last present...his brand new truck with the biggest radio of the night! He was so surprised and needless to say hard to find the rest of the weekend! He definitely deserves it!
Another great surprise of Thanksgiving, Wyatt was able to meet my dad's dad, grandaddy. As most of you know, my dad had a very distant relationship with his father growing up, at the age of 6 my dad was left with his mother and brothers without a father. It is funny how life turns, because here we are, 40 years later, and my dad is taking care of his elderly, long lost dad. Grandaddy had a stroke a few months ago and is slowly recovering. All I can say is my mom and dad have the heart of their Father. It isn't often in this world that people care so genuinely for someone who never cared in the first place. All in all, the day was great. Grandaddy, although distant, definately knows his family and smiles often at the sight of Brandon, my brother, as I think he reminds him of his son, my dad, a very long time ago. All our love to grandaddy, and many prayers daily!
Wyatt and I left Thanksgiving day and headed back to Needville for time with his parents and relatives. On the way, about lunch time, we stopped at a gas station and shared our first Thanksgiving lunch as a married couple...convienent store popcorn! It was definatley a memory we will never forget! As we rushed in the door of his aunts home, getting out of the chilly wind, we were met with the sweet smell of homecooked "real" Thanksgiving food! We stuffed ourselves full with ham, turkey, dressing, and all the fixings!!! We can still feel the stomach pains of being so full!
Through all the driving, hunting, eating, birthdays and being with eachother, we have so much to be thankful for. Wyatt and I feel so blessed to have entered into such a loving and committed relationship not only between eachother but our amazing families. What a special time with family and friends. Every day we thank the Lord for such wonderful blessings!
All our love, and so many prayers to all our family and friends...we are so thankful for each and every one of you!
In Him, for first giving to us His love and His life...
